“Facebook Sued as Alleged Co-Conspirator to Social Casinos” Law Street.

April 19, 2021

Following suits against Apple and Google, three consumers filed a class-action complaint Friday in the Northern District of California against Facebook for its purported continued participation “in an illegal internet gambling enterprise.” The plaintiffs claimed that over the past 10 years, slot machine makers “have teamed up with American technology companies to develop a new product line: social casinos.” According to the complaint, social casinos “are apps, playable from smartphones, tablets, and internet browsers, that make the ‘authentic Vegas-style’ experience of slot machine gambling available to consumers anywhere and anytime.” The plaintiffs alleged that by moving casino games directly onto players’ devices and by using “an innocuous-sounding ‘free-to-play’ model, social casino companies, along with Facebook, Google, and Apple (the ‘Platforms’), have found a way to smuggle slot machines into the homes of consumers nationwide, twenty-four hours a day and three-hundred-sixty-five days a year.”
