A few months back, in April 2018, there was a consumer class action lawsuit filed against Scientific Games Corp. The Scientific Games Class Action Lawsuit alleged that the company misleadingly represented that their online casino games, which include the popular Jackpot Party Casino and Gold Fish Casino, were free to play when, according to the Scientific Games Lawsuit, consumers needed certain chips to play, and, after the free chips they were given were used up, players had to buy additional chips to keep playing. Within the lawsuit, it is also claimed that these games violate Washington law because they are illegal gambling games.
The Scientific Games Lawsuit states that consumers wager to win more chips. The chips won by consumers playing these games of chance are identical to the chips that the company seels. Thus, by wagering 20,000,000 chips that were purchased for $4.99, consumers have the chance to win hundreds of thousands of additional chips that they would otherwise have to purchase.
