VentureBeat for FlowPlay

March 29, 2016

Daily fantasy sports have created a lot of controversy. Since the winnings come in real money, some states are calling it illegal gambling. But FlowPlay is offering an alternative with the launch of its new social sports game, All Star Daily Fantasy.

The title offers the gameplay of betting on daily fantasy sports games, but it doesn’t have real-world winnings. You can buy virtual currency with real money, but you don’t cash out any winnings, and that means it is not defined as gambling under U.S. law. Derrick Morton, the chief executive of Seattle-based FlowPlay, told GamesBeat that this means it offers casual gaming excitement without the headaches of regulatory gambling oversight.

“We don’t want to be regulated, and we make enough money where there is really no reason to be in the real-money gambling world,” Morton said.
