Tom Swoik, of the Illinois Casino Gaming Association, offers his thoughts on the regulation of Illinois daily fantasy sports regulation: 

“This legislation should require DFS betting to be held to the same standards, consumer protections and regulations that all other gaming licensees’ betting products are currently required to meet. If the Illinois General Assembly is serious about opening up Internet gaming beyond the lottery, then it must be done in a comprehensive manner with a level playing field, rather than a carve out that gives preference and special treatment to DFS.”
