You used to only be able to duel with other people in a daily fantasy context. Now, you can duel with the house because FanDuel Sportsbook is one of the largest operators in the state of New Jersey and in the other states that have adopted legalized sports betting.
It is impossible to overstate just how convenient FanDuel Sportsbook makes everything. It is the operator’s greatest selling point, from its extremely user-friendly app down to its signature location at Meadowlands Racetrack, which makes it easily accessible for those heading to New York Jets or New York Giants games and for those that are in the most populated areas of New Jersey and New York.
A lot of New Yorkers are on board the FanDuel train because of the mobile app and the proximity to the New York City metro area. With high volume comes high responsibility and FanDuel is among the best in the business at offering fair lines and betting limits and also a level of safety and security that is unrivaled in the sports betting industry.
Not only that, but FanDuel is also available in Pennsylvania through the license of Valley Forge Casino Resort. It is also the operator of The Greenbrier Sportsbook in West Virginia, though mobile wagering is not yet allowed in the Mountaineer State. It should be soon.
Those won’t be the only states on board with FanDuel. Legalized sports betting is still in its infancy in the US. As additional states pass legislation and set up operations, FanDuel will be there trying to work out deals to provide online support.
An Industry Leader
FanDuel and DraftKings took the sports gambling world by storm with the introduction of daily fantasy sports. In this new frontier of legalized sports betting, you want a name that knows how to operate in that space. FanDuel takes it one step farther because the company is part of Paddy Power Betfair, a titan in the international sports betting world.
That means that you have the best of both worlds. You have the brand name that is FanDuel, but you also have a parent company that has been in the world of legalized sports betting in Europe for a very long time. They know to operate in the correct way and they know what their clients want. FanDuel stands out among the other outfits in so many ways.
The DFS to betting transition was simple. FanDuel already had a tremendous app in the fantasy sports world and implementing sports betting was a breeze. The interface was already set up to offer contests on all of the major US sports, like the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, golf, and MMA. Adding college sports to the mix for betting purposes went seamlessly. Not surprisingly, but several European sports markets are available, ranging from soccer to rugby and from darts to snooker.
Unfortunately, per New Jersey state law, any collegiate sports involving a team from the state are not allowed to be bet on at this time.
The app is the best in the business and works for both iOS and Android. Paddy Power Betfair has years of experience with the far more lenient betting landscape in Europe, so the app works exactly as it should. It includes full-game wagering, live wagering, and all of the other things that you would come to expect from a top online sportsbook.
Signing up at FanDuel is easy. A lot of people already have the app from playing daily fantasy sports, so step one is already complete. One of the nicest functions of the FanDuel Sportsbook app is that you can simply sign up online. Some of the other operators require an in-person appearance to get an account set up and funded. That is not the case with FanDuel, as you can simply enter your personal information, including your social security number and get started right away, so long as you are 21 or older.
You do have to live in the state of New Jersey or have access to the state of New Jersey to bet. Even if you enter your personal information to create an account and have a New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, West Virginia, or Virginia address, you can still bet on the FanDuel app. You just have to be within the state borders of New Jersey to do it.
That means you’ll have to walk, swim, ride, bike, or fly into the Garden State, but you’ll be able to fire up the app, place your bets, and either stay awhile or head on to your home state. For those in New Jersey, you don’t even have to leave the couch to use the mobile app or the online website on your laptop or desktop.
Like most sportsbooks, getting money in is easy and getting it out is a little more difficult. You can deposit with FanDuel via credit card, e-check, a FanDuel prepaid card, a personal check or cashier’s check, PayPal, or PayNearMe, which are found all over the New Jersey area. Those are a lot of ways to fund an account. Just keep in mind that most credit card companies do not give out points for casino or gaming deposits, so if you’re looking for that welcome bonus, you’re going to be disappointed.
If you deposit via PayPal, you can withdraw via PayPal, so that is easily the preferred method for those looking to get money in and get money out when it comes to FanDuel Sportsbook. The other options are e-checks directly to the bank or a check sent to the address on file, which may take up to 5-7 business days.
You can also perform your transactions at the Meadowlands Sportsbook.
Betting Bonuses & Promos
It is a competitive business with so many operators, apps, and options for players. Competition is always a good thing for the consumer. FanDuel’s sign-up bonuses and ongoing promotions are on par with those across the industry. Risk-free bets are all the rage these days in the online sports betting world and FanDuel offers a risk-free bet up to $500 on your first wager.
FanDuel also has a multi-sport parlay insurance promotion, wherein you get up to $25 back if you hit all but one leg of your parlay. The catch is that all parlay legs must be at least -200 bets. FanDuel runs weekly pick ‘em contests, has referral bonuses, and a lot of other options and opportunities for those that need an account boost.
You want to have a great online sports betting experience. This is the best app in the industry for that. FanDuel perfected a DFS app. Paddy Power Betfair perfected a sports betting app. The marriage of the two has created that best user experience in the post-PASPA world.
FanDuel is already in use in multiple states and is only going to grow. That means that you should be able to bet with your app in several locations in the not too distant future. That will make it easy to get your wagers locked in wherever you are that allows sports betting.
Because of its roots in both the US and Europe, the FanDuel platform has one of the biggest catalogs of betting lines, props, and available markets. No matter what sport or event you want to bet, you are going to find it in the FanDuel app or on the website.
The customer service at FanDuel is unmatched, with 24/7 live chat and an extensive set of FAQs, which also features a betting glossary.
