Abstract
Daily fantasy sports are a kind of leisure games played for fun. They are similar to traditional daily sports that were carried out over a short time; that is weekly or daily which is different from sports played seasonally. Daily fantasy sports are set in a similar way to a contest. Competitors pay to participate and win a pre-determined kit depending on their entire results. Another portion of the entry fee goes to the organizers. Daily sports should not be banned in the real world as they play various important roles in lives of people and have been present throughout.
