New York announced that it has reached separate $6 million settlements – for a total of $12 million in penalties and costs – with DraftKings and FanDuel, resolving lawsuits alleging false and deceptive advertising practices by the companies. The settlement agreements impose the highest New York penalty awards for deceptive advertising in recent memory. The agreements also require sweeping reforms to the companies’ marketing, including clear disclosure of terms and conditions for marketing promotions, expected winnings, and expected performance in the online contests, as well as resources for players at risk for compulsive gaming disorders, including addiction. Furthermore, the companies will be required to maintain a webpage that provides information about the rate of success of users in its contests, including the percentage of winnings captured by the top 1%, 5% and 10% of players.
