Sen. Tom Whatley (R-Auburn) has pre-filed Senate Bill 28 (SB28). This bill will legalize online gambling in the form of Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS).
Contrary to the arguments from the big DFS companies, this is Class III gambling, which may open the door for full-fledged casino gambling in Alabama.
Unlike regular fantasy sports, played by friends and family for the length of an entire season, DFS is played online around the world and an individual can lose thousands of dollars in one day! (For the facts on DFS, visit the Stop Predatory Gambling website or click here.)
