A key senator in The big apple said that a daily fantasy sports bill trails online poker legislation in its probabilities of becoming law before a looming deadline.
Sen. John Bonacic, the chair of the Racing, Gaming, and Wagering committee, did an interview with Time Warner Cable News on Monday. In it, he spoke at length about two different gaming bills in front of the legislature.
When asked whether a bill regulating online poker or a bill regulating DFS — both authored by him — had a greater shot at becoming law, he said “online poker” without hesitation.

That’s a drastically different picture than Assemblymember Gary Pretlow — Bonacic’s counterpart and author of bills in that chamber — painted in April, saying online poker’s odds were 100-to-1 or perhaps a 1,000-to-1 to achieve the Assembly floor. At that time, and two weeks ago, Pretlow was extremely optimistic about his DFS bill.
