The Sports Business Daily reports that the Malta Gaming Authority has issued a controlled games skill license to DraftKings to allow the company to operate in the country of Germany and other European nations. The license allows the company to operate in countries that do not require a local gaming license.
The report notes that the license applies to DraftKings only as the application predated the merger with FanDuel. Unlike the license it was given in the UK, this one designates daily fantasy sports as a game of skill.
The expansion is big news for the daily fantasy sports company.
