DeMoura|Smith Files Federal Class Action Against DraftKings

DeMoura|Smith LLP filed a class action lawsuit against DraftKings, Inc. in federal court in Boston, Massachusetts on Friday June 12, 2015. The case is Gardner v DraftKings, Inc., Case Number 1:15-cv-12320.

DraftKings is a sports fantasy website based in Boston, Massachusetts. The complaint alleges that DraftKing’s “double your cash” promotion is false and misleading. “DraftKings advertises that players will receive a bonus equal to double their initial deposit but, once they sign up, players learn that in order to receive this benefit they have to keep gambling and keep spending money with DraftKings” said Ken DeMoura, the attorney who filed the suit seeking to represent the class.

As alleged in the complaint, “a consumer who had deposited $600 would have to spend at least $15,000 on contests, and do so within four months, to obtain what was promised as a “100% First-Time Deposit Bonus” or “DOUBLE YOUR CASH” bonus of $600; that would be $14,400 more than his or her initial payment.”
