PointsBet Class Action - Risk Free Betting
PointsBet USA has been sued in a class action lawsuit alleging that PointsBet falsely advertised that customers could make "Risk-Free" bets on its platform. Many customers thought that placing a "Risk-Free" bet meant that they could get their money back if they lost. But, many customers discovered that these bets were not truly "Risk-Free," and many lost all the money they wagered despite PointsBet's "Risk-Free" promise.
It's Time to Fight for Truth in Sports Betting
PointsBet is Accused of Falsely Advertising that Customers Could Make "Risk Free" Bets
The federal complaint, available here, alleges that PointsBet engaged in a deliberate campaign to entice consumers to its platform with empty promises of “risk-free” promotions and “refunds” if the comsumers’ bets failed to secure winnings. However, the complaint explains how consumers would later learn that if they lost their “risk-free” bets, PointsBet merely offered limited-duration vouchers that could only be used to place a second round of bets. These vouchers could not be exchanged for cash, could not be withdrawn, and expired after only 30 days.
Only if users won their second round of bets at disfavored odds could they hope to recoup losses associated with their initial bets — making this offer anything but “risk-free.”
The complaint alleges violations of the Colorado Consumer Protection Act (Colo. Rev. Stat. §§6-1-101, et seq.), negligent misrepresentation, intentional misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, quasi contract/unjust enrichment/restitution, and violation of N.Y. Gen. Bus. Law §§349 & 350.
