Draft Kings and FanDuel Investigation

DraftKings and FanDuel both market their daily fantasy sports games as requiring skill — not just luck or chance. Claiming that the games involve skill—to skirt anti-gambling laws— the websites allow players to bet on fantasy sports teams. In many states, a game is considered gambling if “chance” is the dominant factor in determining the result, even if skill or knowledge is involved.

Some players are now challenging the two companies to return the bets that were made, since the companies were essentially running an illegal gambling site.

Background

In traditional fantasy sports leagues, people draft their teams before the season, maintaining the same core roster for months. In contrast to season-long fantasy sports, DraftKings and FanDuel accept wagers from bettors for various sporting events, such as NFL and college football teams, as well as hockey, baseball, and NASCAR, by assigning values (points) based upon the performance of athletes and teams. Once the games are over, DraftKings and FanDuel calculate a score and pay bettors that have the highest total number of points, minus the companies’ average cut, which is around 6.5 percent.

Government Officials Have Determined That the FanDuel and DraftKings Business Models Are Illegal

FanDuel and DraftKings have been subject to numerous government investigations. In addition to an FBI criminal probe of the companies, many state attorneys general are also investigating. In order to resolve an investigation by the Massachusetts Attorney General, the companies agreed to pay $2.6 million to resolve the probe of the companies’ unfair and deceptive practices affecting consumers in Massachusetts. The Nevada Gaming Control Board determined that DraftKings and FanDuel constituted illegal gambling because both “involve wagering on the collective performance of individuals participating in sporting events.” The New York Attorney General has also determined that DraftKings and FanDuel were conducting illegal gambling in New York.
