DraftKings and FanDuel are ready for Iowa DFS launch

Earlier, the Iowa DFS launch was planned to launch before the NFL season. However, the launch is delayed due to Iowa’s strict rules and regulations.
Brian Ohorilko, administrator of the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission said: ‘In the simplest terms, the issue is the technical certifications and a process called ‘change control,’ which specifies when changes to various technology should be logged, reported to the regulator, or submitted to the lab’.
With the final authorization to offer regulated DFS, most probably the DraftKings and FanDuel are ready for the Iowa DFS launch next week.
