The state of Virginia legalized daily fantasy sports wagering back in 2016. The Fantasy Contests Act was signed into law by Governor Terry McAuliffe in February of that year and does a great job of protecting consumers and bringing oversight to the entire DFS sites industry.

The Virginia’s bill requires from daily fantasy sports operators such as Draftkings and Fanduel pay a $50,000 registration fee, prevent anyone under 18 from participating, prevent employees from competing in real money contests and sharing confidential information and provide a self-exclusion mechanism for DFS players.

That is why popular in other DFS friendly states Monkey Knife Fight is not accepting players from Virginia in 2020.
