Fanduel Lawsuit, DFS Legal Issues & NFL Personal Conduct Policy
Pat Mayo Hour: Fanduel Lawsuit, DFS Legal Issues & NFL Conduct Policy
“The lawsuit, filed Nov. 20, claims that the fantasy sports website’s claim to match a new member’s initial deposit of up to $200 is inaccurate, claiming instead a complicated formula used by the site ‘does not match a single dollar.’ The lawsuit claims rather than matching the new member deposit, the website uses a formula that releases four percent of the entry fee during each contest entered. Instead of a $200 deposit resulting in $400 in a member’s account, a consumer receives a bonus of $8 if he or she enters a $200 contest.”
