PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says he’ll await potential guidance from the state Gaming Commission before deciding whether to take any action on fantasy sports betting.

Jackley issued a statement Friday saying that federal law, the state in which a wager is made and the state in which a wager is received may have jurisdiction over the matter.

Daily fantasy has exploded in popularity after both Boston-based DraftKings and New York-based FanDuel unleashed a flurry of on-air, online and billboard ads promoting the games to casual sports fans. A DraftKings employee winning $350,000 in a contest on rival FanDuel earlier this year - beating more than 200,000 other players - raised insider trading questions.

The South Dakota Gaming Commission plans to discuss the issue at its Wednesday meeting.
