Stop Wisconsin’s Largest Expansion of Gambling
The Wisconsin State Constitution currently prohibits internet gambling but the Wisconsin State legislature plans to introduce a bill this fall that will legalize Daily Fantasy Sports, making it the largest expansion of gambling in state history. It would allow addictive online sports gambling into nearly every home, every dorm room and onto every smart phone in the state.
Daily Fantasy Sports are predatory and deceptive. They are games of significant chance, due to highly-variable player performance in real-world situations, and constitute gambling by every definition.
Opening up online gambling, such as Daily Fantasy Sports, in Wisconsin will:
- Increase gambling addiction
- Increase gambling debt
- Negatively impact families across the state

OPPOSE DAILY FANTASY SPORTS!
We, the undersigned eligible voters of the State of Wisconsin, strongly urge the legislature and Governor Evers to oppose the legalization of online gambling in Wisconsin.
The legalization of online gambling in Wisconsin represents the largest expansion of gambling in state history. It would allow the state to force internet gambling into nearly every home, every dorm room and onto every smart phone in the state, a far greater expansion of commercialized gambling than constituents, legislators and state media have been led to believe.
Moreover, the Wisconsin State Constitution prohibits internet gambling. While some argue Daily Fantasy Sports is not gambling, that is simply not factual. Daily Fantasy Sports games of significant chance, due to highly-variable player performance in real-world situations, and constitute gambling by every definition. Just like online poker, Daily Fantasy Sports relies on a large volume of less skilled players to feed the jackpot for the few who are more highly skilled. In fact,
- DraftKings reported 89.3% of players had an overall negative return across 2013 and 2014
- The New York Times reported just 10 to 20 percent of Daily Fantasy Sports entrants win anything at all
- The Sports Business Journal found that through the first half of the 2015 Major League Baseball season, 91% of all Daily Fantasy Sports winnings were collected by just 1% of all players.
Therefore, we strongly urge the Legislature and Governor Evers to protect the citizens of Wisconsin and oppose the legalization of online gambling in Wisconsin.
