Online Daily Fantasy Sports in Turkmenistan
Internet Daily Fantasy Sport in Turkmenistan is unregulated, but it is allowed. Unlike neighbouring states, gambling is legal in Turkmenistan, although there are no domestic online gambling sites. Likewise, there are no local online daily fantasy sports sites in Turkmenistan, but there are many international daily fantasy sports sites that allow Turkmen. The biggest restraint is internet access: there is limited availability, personal internet connections only becoming available in 2008.
Turkmenistan’s most popular sport is football. There are many teams, which some players and managers achieving international success. Daily fantasy football is could soon be a popular pursuit of Turkmen.
Horse racing has much cultural importance in Turkmenistan. Even when betting was banned under communist rule, it still took place. It is seen as so important culturally that President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow made attendance compulsory on certain occasions. Betting at these occasions is gaining popularity – whether legitimately or illegally – but daily fantasy horse racing could be the perfect compromise for lovers of sport in Turkmenistan.
