Daily fantasy sports sites claim they are not gambling enterprises, but they seem awfully…gamblish. If only their ads were more truthful.
Was that the campaign woman from Parks and Rec from the ad in this clip?
6:27 It says “Gaming License”, not “Gambling License”…
Fantasy Sports: The current, leading cause of Super-Divorces across the country.
187 people here play Daily Fantasy Sports
These fucking ppl are full of so much bullshit!!! It’s gambling!!!
They should’ve gotten Norm McDonald in that last bit.
why is this an issue? of someone wants to gamble their money away let them. Jesus for a county that constantly reminds eveyone we have freedom, we sure have a lot of trivial laws and rules. let em play.
Just let people gamble already. Allowing it in two cities and on reservations is just getting stupid now!
Do a video on how charity and canned food drive are ineffective. Something around charity for next week. Please, read my comment Lastweektonight!
It really is like a casino and the idiots just raise the profits and fuck those annoying ass commercials.
I didn’t know gambling was illegal I mean what it’s wrong with it? Plus it’s fun and it’s my money right?….
6:27 Wait, wait wait… Unless I suddenly forhot how to read, this says “DraftKings… has received a GAMING license to operate in the UK” not a GAMBLING license !
Holy shit! Wasn’t expecting Seth Rogen to make an appearance.
Hay if dip shit people want to waist there life and money doing this… let them.
I win big at Daily Fantasy Sports. I don’t play.
If you bother to pause your DVR & read the fine print it says “this ad does not reflect the average winnings, most are usually $22.00” . Bwhahaha. That’s assuming the people interest in the product have a dvr.
At 6’25 (I dont know how to do the fancy blue link thing) i dont know if it is a typo or what, but it is says gaming license and not gambling license like you say in the clip
Seth Rogen keeps knocking girls up.
“I hope ya kick good” LMAO
So people like to gamble, just a profound discovery.
WTF. We should be able to gamble if we want to. Online Poker and Daily Fantasy should be legal in the USA. Canada has online Poker and it’s a very liberal country. This is the first time I am disappointed by John Oliver. This segment looks like a Republican agenda which I am shocked by.
This whole segment doesn’t make any sense. It is gambling because only the top 1% (+ a few really lucky) have a real chance of winning? With the same reason one could say the US are not a democracy because 1% determine who will win the next elections. Wait ..
8:14 How old is that news anchor? Fifteen? :D
Thanks, Seth Rogen.
good but forgot to mention that most of the big winners on Fanduel work for Draftkings and vice versa
This is why I never go to these sites cause I don’t know a damn thing about football basketball or baseball
To K.I.S.S.: It’s gambling
Amy Adams is clearly hotter.
Oh, Seth Rogen, I gotta watch some of your movies.
6:22 “DraftKings…has received a gaming license”…a typo, or did John Oliver misspeak?
Welp whats phillip defranco gonna say about this
If you really wanna gamble stick your dick in a hooker without a condom. NOW THERE’S A REAL GAME OF CHANCE!
did his (personal) accountant did something wrong to him? why he keep mentioning Janice from accounting
I’ve heard it said that fantasy football is just Dungeons and Dragons for those who suck at fantasy and football, and I gotta say that’s kinda true :P
On one of the commercials a guy says “If you think you can’t win, you can.” and I always think to myself, “but I think I CAN win, so I guess I can’t…” :(
Its not often John.. but you are so wrong this time.. i bet you didnt consult any mathematician before putting up claims.
“I’m so dumb I need the government to protect me.”
Philip DeFranco sold out to online gambling. The irony
This is legal and playing cards online is not WTF……. B/c the pay taxes right…
Can we talk about how this law in 2006 that outlawed online gambling was snuck into a bill for port security? That law should never have been a law in the first place.
It was added as Title VIII to the SAFE Port Act (found at 31 U.S.C. §§ 5361–5367) which otherwise regulated port security.
The question is isn’t it fundamentally anti freedom to have laws that prohibit gambling. It’s your money blow it on what u want.
Who’s the actor playing Seth Rogan’s wife?
85% are losers? It’s *FANTASY* sports; all of them are losers.
* Pauses video * * types “new goof” into search engine *
He’s English, but doesn’t have pasty skin.
“‘Anybody can succeed’ is a bit of a stretch when only one per cent of the players are winning most of the money.”
Also an apt statement about capitalism in general, and specifically the economic model of the USA.
Finally, John Oliver says it out loud:
The American Dream is a sham, a racket to entice you to play along and keep acting and voting against your own interest in a spectacularly massive fashion.
State lotteries must be games of skill.
I don’t get it. If it’s not a game of skill then how come only 1.3% of people win? If according to Joe Namath I bet something and win something does that mean arcade token games that have ticket payouts gambling? If so then I’ve been gambling since I was three arrest me now Joe. If I enter a COD tournament with 50 dollar buy in and chance at 500 prize, that’s a game of skill. If I put a 50 dollar buy in for poker and could win 500 that’s a game of chance? Can someone explain that shit to me?
Just capitalism baby! Exploit dumb people for the $$$. Be a middle man, skim some of the top! AMERICAN DREAM!
shout out to the 205 employees of FanDuel/DraftKings who disliked this video.
don’t rebagliati me man
The guy from Silicon Valley!
said gaming license not gambling lincense
Was anyone else drawing parallels to the economy when he was breaking down the success numbers?
“1.3% win money, 85% are losers.”
These numbers are so similar to how income inequality breaks down, it’s not even funny. I’ve been saying for years that our economy is essentially a birth lottery.
When ever I hear people mindlessly chanting something my brain always turns it into “ONE OF US! ONE OF US! ONE OF US!”
Oliver oneliners are better than any Bond :D
First religion, now daily fantasy gambling, John is going after every activity that people throw their money away on. Daily “Fantasy” couldn’t be more appropriately named. #John4Bond
I play FanDuel, and I do think that it is a form of gambling. But what I don’t agree with is for someone to tell me how to spend my money. I like to play fantasy sports and if I can gamble at the same time, then why not? I could care less about how the government feels about it. This is just another attempt of the government to try to speak for me. Screw that. I understand that I am gambling and that I can lose my money. By that, I am not being robbed of anything. I hope that nothing happens to FanDuel or Draftkings.
Hey Jocks, how does it feel to be a nerds bitch.
I fucking love that sentence, I want do print it on a t-shirt and wear it all year :D
But its legal ! ! !
Oh I love this man XDD
Things masquerading as gambling aren’t really new though. If you really think about it, a lot of those places that dispense tickets for kids are basically gambling for children. I think they just get around it because most of the games at least give you one ticket that you can cash in for candy, but let’s be real here. Your kid wants the big prize at the top of the shelf that costs thousands of tickets and chances are, you are not coming back to this location any time soon and your kid wants to put hundreds of dollars into the machines to try to rack up that many tickets, but they won’t. Every time they lose or they don’t make enough, they will come back and keep asking you for money to play more.
This was also my childhood and we used to go to some of these places multiple times, but as we got older we didn’t go as often anymore and then those places closed so then we had a pile of tickets at home that were then useless. Again, gambling for children.
John, you’re partially right, but shut up will you! I’m a numbers nerd and sports betting is my main source of income. Sure, the average idiot who bets money on sports has no chance, but they don’t have to join do they? I’d argue that DFS leagues are at least more just than something like the Lottery, a game where people are literally just throwing their money away indiscriminately.
Daily Fantasy is gambling, but gambling should be legal anyways, what’s the difference between me getting online to play or driving down the road to the local Indian casino? (and yes i can wear sweatpants to do both)
Also John makes it sound like if you play one of these games you are totally fucked, when in reality anyone can play these games and make a modest amount of winnings, just like if you walk into a casino you can walk out with a few hundred bucks and you can lose money, but that’s part of the game and if you can’t handle it don’t gamble. If your argument for prohibition is that some people can’t handle their shit then we should outlaw alcohol and tobacco because clearly some people can’t handle that either. Also sports betting has been happening in vegas and online for years now and sports is still competitive so stfu about sports betting
I love this show and agree that it is gambling BUT that does not mean it should be illegal.
I believe it should be allowed BUT I will admit, I also believe sports gambling should be legal completely as well. People should be allowed to do what they want with their money and if it is in the open, those who have addictions can get help easier.
So I believe these two are just caught in a bigger issue of sports gambling rather than being so horrible themselves.
That 40% joke was amazing.
The people who win these games are probably the same people who were made fun of for playing D&D in high school, by the same people who where making fun of them.
So what if it’s gambling? Why is it illegal?
Who wants to bet this is one John Oliver video that Philip DeFranco isn’t going to feature in Today In Awesome
Okay, two things. First off, the ending of this bit was better than the entire expose. Second, what was the point of this expose? We just went from “prison re-entry” to “fuck jocks”. Breaking down this down even further, we reach several additional points – number one, gambling shouldn’t be illegal in the first place, it’s a vice law, and all vice laws are just bitter old fucks mouthing off about jazz music or whatever; number two, classifying any skill-based game as gambling just because you win money (card games, number puzzles, mahjong, etc) is just being a whiny little bitch because you’re not very good at it; number three, John, we’re waiting for you do to *something* with the fucking horrible haircut, anything at all really, please John, shave the sides and spike the top or something; and number four, if playing a game so that you win money is gambling then all sports and games of all kinds need to be counted as gambling. Really, I don’t understand where this show is going anymore. It seems like ever since the LGBT video, the show has been less and less about in-depth expose coverage about lesser known subjects of great importance and instead more and more about whatever the fuck is trending or popular at the time. Ignoring the politics of certain segments, and whether or not people agree or disagree with them, the show has adapted a sort of “we’re right you’re wrong” mentality towards every segment that it does while simultaneously condemning people for adapting a sort of “we’re right you’re wrong” mentality. I don’t know what is going on, but whatever it was that you gave your writing staff for the first season, you need to give it to them again.
… it disgusts me that people will take to the streets to protest football related crap, yet we have the lowest voter turnout
why this nigga teeth so ugly
Why the bleep are they fucking out all the bleeps?
“Hey jocks how does it feel to be a nerd’s bitch” I laughed my ass off, simply genius.
The Continuing Story of Janice In Accounting :)
Who is Seth Rogens wife in this video
Gaming and Gambling are spelled differently John, check your dictionary :)
Both of those were crocodiles. I hope that was part of the joke.
It’s not gambling
Thats five weeks in a row, Janice don’t give a fuck.
It’s gambling. Who cares.
I feel torn. I’m a decent human weirdo, who is sometimes an asshole. Where do I belong?
John oliver for next bond with beyonce as bond girl.
Funny, except that crack about the Jaguars. I’m a Jaguars fan and would prefer people not take shots at them.
i´ll watch a 007 movie with janice in acounting as james bond
Now this is something I never heard about. Seriously, fantasy sports?
Fuck DraftKings and FanDuel, and fuck their commercials and sponsorships.
Okay, I’ve got a question for John Oliver and anyone else that thinks poker and fantasy sports are gambling: how are they any different from investing in the stock market?
All of them are matters of trying to have as much information as possible with varying degrees of luck. Hell, you could say all of life is like this. Most of life’s major events (what school you go to, who you marry, what job you get, who your parents are) are largely determined by luck, no matter how distasteful you find that fact. Should we just make living illegal then?
My name is Oliver…… John Oliver.. tadaaa..
I really don’t care about gambling just make the fucking ads go away!
this show is getting more stupid each day
daily fantasy sites are retarded and if you play them you should die.
I’m a Buccaneers fan :(
We should draw a distinction between a game where everyone loses in the long run and you’re attempting to beat the odds (lottery, blackjack, keno, slots, etc) and games where it is possible to have an edge if you hone your skills (poker, fantasy sports, day trading, etc).
