Forbes for FlowPlay
March 30, 2016
What if a daily fantasy sports operator figured out a way to generate a strong user base, without requiring participants to pay an entry fee, and still earn a profit? It would alleviate that company’s concern of it plausibly violating any one of a number of state and federal laws that could be construed as prohibiting pay-for-prize daily fantasy games.
FlowPlay, a technology company with primary investment from Intel's INTC +0.57% venture capital arm, Intel Capital, has launched All Star Daily Fantasy, a free-to-play equivalent of a traditional daily fantasy sports experience. It leverages casual games mechanics and virtual currency in a user-friendly/mass-market approach to the daily fantasy sports industry that should remain widely-legal outside of any regulatory changes.
