Yes. Passed by the US Federal Government in 2006, the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act included an exemption indicating legality of fantasy sports.
This exemption reads as follows:
- All prizes and awards offered to winning participants are established and made known to the participants in advance of the game or contest and their value is not determined by the number of participants or the amount of any fees paid by participants.
- All winning outcomes reflect the relative knowledge and skill of the participants and are determined predominantly by accumulated statistical results of the performance of individuals (athletes in the case of sports events) in multiple real-world sporting or other events.
- No winning outcome is based: (a.) On the score, point spread, or any performance or performances of any single real world team or any combination of such teams; or (b.) Solely on any single performance of an individual athlete in any single real-world sporting or other event."
Fantasy sports have been determined a “game of skill” and are therefore not within the scope of the various U.S. gambling laws.
States not falling under this law: Alabama, Arizona, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New York, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington. Residents of Prince Edward Island and Quebec are not eligible to participate in Star Fantasy Leagues cash games.
Cash won in daily contests are distributed to all accounts within an hour after the last game is officially over -- providing that stats have become official.
A Freeroll is a daily/weekly tournament that is played for free, either offered by SFL as a tournament that any player can join, or as a tournament for players willing to use a certain amount of their Star Points.
Prizes for freerolls can include cash, Star Points, Prizes or entries into big cash tournaments.
Deposit bonuses are released into accounts at an incremental rate of 20% of the entry fee for whichever contest you have entered. Any deposit bonuses released into an account from the bonus section of their account is then available for withdrawal.
SFL is required to report any winnings of $600 (net of entry fees) or more for each individual to the Internal Revenue Service on Form 1099-MISC. SFL may request specific information from the winners prior to crediting their account with the winnings, this information will be used to report the necessary winnings in January of the following year. In addition, each January any winner who won $600 or more in the previous year will be asked to provide an updated address and social security number (if not previously provided).
You will receive a referral bonus from players that you refer that:
- Enters and plays in any Leagues/Tournament that has an entry fee and does not cancel.
- Enters and plays in any Guaranteed Leagues/Tournament that has an entry fee ONLY if the league fills.
You will not receive a referral bonus from players that you refer that play in Freeroll Leagues/Tournaments or in any League/Tournament that does not have a U.S. Dollar entry fee.
