Caesars Entertainment has found itself in a legal battle against New York residents.
A class action lawsuit has been filed against Caesars Sportsbook over the alleged use of misleading advertising and promotional language. Specifically, the lawsuit targets the use of terms such as “risk-free” and “free” bets.
The New York sports betting case names plaintiff Lachae Vickers v. defendant Caesars Entertainment.
A portion of the 25-page document reads: “Caesars Sportsbook has become an industry leader in part by making untruthful and deceptive promises to lure new bettors; specifically, by advertising that the company will provide new users with a $1,000 or $1,250 or even $5,000 ‘free bet,’ ‘risk-free bet,’ or a specified amount ‘on Caesars.'”
