It seems fitting that the new king of the poker world loves DraftKings.com.
Poker’s latest wunderkind, Greg Merson, dazzled onlookers and the millions watching on television with his calculated, methodical victory at the 2012 WSOP Main Event. Not only did the win earn Merson more than $8.5 million, he also snared WSOP Player of the Year honors. DraftKings is very proud to be Greg’s exclusive daily fantasy sports sponsor.
DraftKings is 100% legal. In 2006 the United States Federal Government specifically defined fantasy sports as a game of skill and therefore made it 100% legal to play. The earning potential is both unlimited and straightforward, and the payouts are instantaneous. DraftKings is venture capital backed and based in the USA. These guys have deep pockets and are absolutely committed to providing users the best gaming experience on the web. The legality and venture funds ensure that under no circumstances will your money be at risk.
