Daily Fantasy Sports Games Are Clearly Gambling

Dr. Fong talks about Daily Fantasy Sports Games and their relevance as a form of gambling in the article published in the Debate Club. While these daily fantasy sport games are legal because they are labelled as a game of skill, Dr. Fong argues that there is still potential risk for addiction. “Whenever new forms of gambling become popular (e.g. video poker, online gambling, interactive slot machines), there is the concern that there will be a rise in gambling addiction, now known as gambling disorder.”
