FanDuel’s “Welcome Bonus”

In March 2015, the plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed a false advertising class-action lawsuit against FanDuel, Inc., a fantasy sports website that requires players to create an account and make a deposit. According to the 2014 complaint, the website misleadingly advertised a “Welcome Bonus” by saying that it would match either all or a portion of a new member’s initial deposit but did not adequately disclose that this bonus is actually based on a formula requiring members to play and invest on the website and, as a result, the website does not match any portion of a new member’s initial deposit. The reasons for the dismissal have not yet been disclosed. (Sidisin et al v. FanDuel, Inc. and Does 1-25, Case No. 15-cv-00873, C. D. CA.).
