The path trodden by Daily Fantasy Sports sites—both new and well-established—has been notoriously treacherous. This is particularly the case in the UK, where several of the big players—Mondogoal and FanDuel, for instance—have ceased trading.
The situation for DFS sites has not exactly been rosy in the US, either. With the ongoing question into the legality of DFS across several states, the thwarted merger of FanDuel and DraftKings, and multiple allegations of corruption, the odds have been stacked against DFS from the start.
Naturally, this can cause us honest Daily Fantasy Sports fans to worry. Will we be able to play DFS forever, or will it just be a flash in the pan, another failed entrant to the incredibly volatile gambling industry? Reports of DraftKings and FanDuel making huge losses did nothing to settle our nerves.
Surely things are on the up for Daily Fantasy Sports? In this article, we examine the current state of the DFS industry.
