In case you’ve missed it, HBO’s news show ‘Last Week Tonight with John Oliver’ ran a piece over Daily Fantasy games. The question are these games legal or not is something that both eSports and real sports and gambling industry will have to answer.

This is not the first video John Oliver did over suspicious activities taking place in American NFL, and for those interested – you can watch his video on Stadiums and requested subsidies:
Enjoy your weekend, folks.
