Age Requirements & Available U.S. States

Updated this week

You must be at least 18 years old to play our paid-entry contests of skill in any of our available states (19 years old in Nebraska). For eligible United States residents, you must also be a current US resident and possess a valid Social Security Number to enter contests, and have a US checking or savings bank account to deposit or withdraw funds from your Chalkboard Wallet. Users are only entitled to one device and phone number per account.

Furthermore, you must also comply with the rules and regulations of the state in which you are located. This requires you to supply personal identification and geolocation information for verification purposes to determine eligibility.

Regulations on fantasy sports contests vary from state to state, and in some states, offering fantasy competitions like Chalkboard Picks is not permitted. As a result, we’re only able to offer the Chalkboard Picks game in the following states:

  • Alaska

  • California

  • Georgia

  • Illinois

  • Kentucky

  • Minnesota

  • Nebraska

  • New Mexico

  • North Carolina

  • North Dakota

  • Oklahoma

  • Oregon

  • Rhode Island

  • South Carolina

  • South Dakota

  • Texas

  • Utah

  • Vermont

  • Wisconsin

  • Washington D.C.

Note: Players Illinois and Vermont are not allowed to place entries on college sports.

For all other states, the law is either ambiguous or the regulations are burdensome enough that we’re not going to be offering Chalkboard Picks in them at launch. We'll evaluate the licensing requirements for each state one-by-one, and our goal is to eventually be operating in as many states as possible. If you live in a state that's not listed above, stay tuned for updates. No promises, but we're trying our best.

Different jurisdictions have different laws, rules, and other restrictions that affect availability. We apologize if you are unable to participate in some or all of our contests. Keep an eye out for updates as they develop as we update availability as fast as possible!
