The employee who stole $22 million from the Jacksonville Jaguars was reportedly a legendarily bad daily fantasy sports gambler

Lawsuit against the gambling sites to follow?

[The former employee's lawyer] said in the statement that "approximately 99% of the funds misappropriated from the Jaguars' [virtual credit card program] were gambling losses, almost all of which occurred" on FanDuel and DraftKings [using the username "ParlayPicker"]. 


As ParlayPicker's play escalated and word of his missteps spread in the [daily fantasy sports] community, players made a point of seeking out contests against him, according to multiple daily fantasy sources. One veteran DFS player, who communicated with ESPN on condition of anonymity, said they believe ParlayPicker is "the biggest loser ever on FanDuel."

"He was legendarily bad," the person added.

DraftKings and FanDuel declined to comment.
