DENVER -- In sports bars across the city, fans watched Game 1 of the World Series between the Kansas City Royals and New York Mets on Tuesday night.
Between innings, they couldn’t miss commercials for two gaming websites, FanDuel.com and DraftKings.com.
A new lawsuit in Colorado alleges those websites’ employees used insider information to gain an advantage over unsuspecting paying customers. One of those employees even allegedly won $300,000.
“I like it because it's a little twist and it makes me more interested ... a little more invested in teams,” said Alexander Blakeslee, who uses one of the sites.
He's aware of the allegations that website employees used inside information to win money.
“If they are, it's not fair. Then all of us should be privy to that information," he said.
It’s not the first of its kind lawsuit, but it is the first to be filed in Colorado. The websites did not reply to requests for comments.
