DraftKings To Offer Daily Fantasy Sports In Iowa

Technological problems finally solved, DraftKings launched daily fantasy sports in Iowa on Oct. 25.

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds gave approval to the regulation of daily fantasy sports by the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission in May when she signed a sports betting bill into law. Unfortunately, ongoing issues relating to certification for the technology to operate daily fantasy sports by an independent testing lab held up the process for several months.

FanDuel is ironing out some bugs in its software but is also expected to launch its DFS service in the state very soon. Iowa is the 21st U.S. state to legalize daily fantasy sports.
