Daily Fantasy Sports regulations in Massachusetts, Indiana and Virginia may influence what laws are proposed in Illinois. Casino industry officials say that the regulations are unfair, putting casinos at a distinct disadvantage:

“After all, casinos pay higher tax rates and face strict oversight by state regulators, said Tom Swoik, executive director of the Illinois Casino Gaming Association.

‘We think (the bill) needs to be strengthened and level the playing field with what casinos have to do,’ Swoik said.”
