Relating to the definition of a bet for purposes of gambling
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 2303 would alter the definition of a bet in the Penal Code to exclude fantasy sports competitions, as long as the outcome of the competitions are determined based on statistical performances of athletes and not based solely on the score, point spread, or performance of a single athlete. This bill essentially decriminalizes fantasy sports competitions that award a prize to the winner.
