January 2015: A false advertising class-action lawsuit was filed against an online fantasy sports gambling business, DraftKings, Inc. Among other things, the complaint alleges that DraftKings deceptively advertises that it will “double,” or instantly match, up to $600 of a fantasy sports player’s initial deposit when, in reality, the company only gives players a bonus of 4% of every dollar they put into play. (Aguirre et al v. DraftKings, Inc., Case No. 15-cv-20353, S. D. FL.)
