Fantasy Sports Still Legal in Texas

A recent opinion offered by the State attorney general has caused a lot of confusion about daily fantasy sports.

Rob Walters from the law firm Gibson Dunn says the A-G confused a lot of people but fantasy sports are not illegal in Texas.

Paxton was if he thought the games were illegal and he said yes.

Walters says daily fantasy sports are not a game of chance and therefore, not a form of gambling under state law.

So go ahead and join a league, draft your players and have some fun.
