Gaming Frog is legal, given that the competitions that take place in our platform are considered games of skill. Skill-based gaming has a well-established legal, social and commercial history. Today, games of skill are available on most major media sites like AOL, MSN, Yahoo and are complemented by an emerging electronic sports (eSports) industry that lets professional gamers compete in popular video games with real money at stake.
Gaming Frog is a platform that advances this trend, enabling skill-based multiplayer tournaments on mobile devices while offering gamers the ability to compete for cash prizes. Games supported by Gaming Frog take the clear distinction as being games of skill -- and not games of chance -- a difference which makes Gaming Frog cash tournaments legal in the majority of the United States.
As of today, Gaming Frog powers cash competitions in roughly 44 US states except in Alaska, Arizona, Delaware, Maryland, North Dakota and Tennessee.
