Fantasy Sports Gaming: Is Louisiana Missing Out On Millions? [VIDEO]
Ryan Berni from Fairness For Fantasy Sports Louisiana, talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the parish-by-parish fantasy sports referendum in Tuesday's election.
Berni tells KEEL listeners that the reason he supports a "yes" vote is twofold. First, personal freedom. "For sports fans - fantasy sports fans - it's really important that people be able to spend their money as they see fit. It's a simple matter of people should be able to do what they want."
Berni says the other reason comes down to adding to state coffers, money that he says Louisiana is missing out on. "We're losing out on potential revenue opportunities," he says, adding that fantasy sports are legal in forty one other states across America.
