Daily fantasy sports and cheating allegations, a quick Q&A

Share This

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Cheating allegations rocked the daily fantasy sports industry this week and as scrutiny mounts, a largely self-aimed spotlight has grown blindingly bright on DraftKings and FanDuel, which have flooded televisions, phones and computers with advertisements promising million-dollar payouts to a lucky few. It all began when players noticed a DraftKings employee — and frequent winner in competitor FanDuel’s contests — posted a list online that ranked which NFL players were picked the most for a DraftKings contest that was still accepting entries. The employee said it was a mistake, nothing more, acknowledging the information shouldn’t have been posted before the contest closed. But suspicions grew about the use of insider knowledge when people noticed the employee’s particularly lucrative win on FanDuel around the same time for $350,000.
