DoubleDown Online Casino Games Settlement
DoubleDown Interactive has agreed to pay $415 million to resolve claims its casino mobile games violated Washington’s gambling laws. The lawsuit claims that Defendants violated Washington State’s gambling laws and Washington’s Consumer Protection Act through the sale of virtual chips in the following social casino-style games: DoubleDown Casino, DoubleDown Fort Knox, DoubleDown Classic, and Ellen’s Road to Riches. These laws allow recovery of money lost on Defendants’ casino-style games.
The Court has not decided whether the Plaintiffs or Defendants should win this case. Instead, both sides agreed to a Settlement. That way, they avoid the uncertainties and expenses associated with ongoing litigation, and Settlement Class Members will get compensation now rather than years from now, if at all.
You are a members of the settlement class if you played DoubleDown Casino, DoubleDown Fort Knox, DoubleDown Classic, and/or Ellen’s Road to Riches, while in the United States, on or before November 14, 2022.
Excluded from the Settlement Class are (1) any Judge or Magistrate presiding over this Action and members of their families, (2) the Defendants, Defendants’ subsidiaries, parent companies, successors, predecessors, and any entity in which a Defendant or its parent has a controlling interest and their current or former officers, directors, and employees, (3) persons who properly execute and file a timely request for exclusion from the Settlement Class, and (4) the legal representatives, successors or assigns of any such excluded persons.
