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.”
