On the Hunt for Canadian Gaming Bigfoot
Spring 2019 – Canadian Gaming Lawyer v12 n1
In the Canadian gaming field, we have our own Bigfoot. Part of Canadian gaming folklore, this “Canadian Gaming Bigfoot” is a game that appears to be quasi-gambling but is actually a game of skill. There have been many claims of Canadian Gaming Bigfoot sightings, but these claims are either untested (e.g., daily fantasy sports, penny auctions), or upon closer inspection and a review of the evidence (i.e., by a Canadian court), determined by courts to be either a game of chance or mixed chance of skill (i.e., not Canadian Gaming Bigfoot).
