Online Daily Fantasy Sports in Taiwan
The legality of online daily fantasy sports sites in Taiwan is a little unclear. As of May 2016, there are no local DFS websites in the country, but players here can still access daily fantasy sports for money through a number of foreign websites.
Unlike many other countries in Asia, the most popular sport in Taiwan is baseball. It is said that the sport gained popularity during the Japanese rule in the early 20th century. Taiwan has its own major league consisting of four teams, and a number of Taiwanese players have been sent to play in the MLB. Fantasy baseball is quite popular here, and is likely to grow as more foreign DFS websites begin allowing players from Taiwan.
Basketball is likely the second most popular sport in Taiwan. The success of NBA player Jeremy Lin, whose parents were born in Taiwan, helped elevate the popularity of the sport to new heights. There are many daily fantasy basketball options available here.
Internet daily fantasy sports in Taiwan are still new, but the passion that the country has for mainstream sports make it a market to keep an eye on.
