PrizePicks to halt New York contests amid new regulation

Fantasy Sports

In a strategic response to recent regulatory changes by the New York State Gaming Commission, PrizePicks, a popular daily fantasy sports site, has announced its decision to discontinue its ‘Pick’Em’ service in the Empire State.

The announcement comes in the wake of new licensing rules set forth by the New York Gaming Commission, compelling PrizePicks to reevaluate its service offerings within the state. As a result, the Atlanta-based company will temporarily suspend its traditional ‘Pick’Em’ games, shifting its focus to free-to-play options for New York customers.

In the face of these changes, PrizePicks remains optimistic and is actively pursuing a new license to resume paid contests. The company plans to introduce fresh and innovative fantasy games that promise larger prizes and more exhilarating ways to play and win.
