Two national daily sports fantasy contests have agreed to stop offering their games to Idaho consumers. 

The Idaho Attorney General’s office announced Monday an agreement with DraftKings Inc. and FanDuel Inc. Attorney General Lawrence Wasden says the settlement was reached after three months of negotiations.

“The concern I have is that the paid daily sports offerings provided by these companies constitute gambling under Idaho law,” Wasden says in a news release.
