In April 2018, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Scientific Games Corp. for allegedly misleadingly representing that its online casino games – including Jackpot Party Casino and Gold Fish Casino – are free-to-play when, according to the complaint, players need chips to play the games and, after they use all of the free chips given to first time visitors, they need to purchase additional chips to continue playing. Plaintiffs also claim that the games violate Washington law because they are illegal gambling games. (Fife et al v. Scientific Games Corp.
, Case No. 18-cv-565, W. D. WA.)
