Awesome. Fantasytote.com is another Irish service in same fantasy football gambling space having players against each other using a tote, rather than the house setting the odds.

FanDuel claims not to be gambling yet they're being bought out by a gambling company. Interesting

    well, i mean, my opinion is that FanDuel is in fact a gambling company, but unalligned businesses do acquisitions all the time

    I mean an e-commerce site literally bought a brick and mortar grocery store because it had the money

    It's the first of many. Companies have been circling for years, prepping for access to the US market.

    Brutal. Their most recent round was $275 mil at a $1.3 billion valuation.
