William Hill Sports Book is known for being one of the largest gambling companies in the United States. As such, it has made sure to create some sense of independence from fantasy football. That’s primarily true when it comes to the semi-new rage that is daily fantasy sports.
Unfortunately for FanDuel, it is now feeling the wrath of William Hill. According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, the company is suing the daily fantasy sports head honcho, claiming that FanDuel plagiarized their “How to Bet” guide.

That’s some pretty darn strong evidence right there that FanDuel did in fact plagiarize from William Hill.
“We are not litigious people but this is ridiculous, William Hill CEO Joe Asher said in a statement. “If the court finds in our favor, a portion of the proceeds will fund scholarships for creative writing progress At New Jersey universities.”
It’s not yet known what William Hill is seeking from a monetary standpoint. Though, there’s no real reason to believe the company won’t come out on top. The evidence is staggering.
