FanDuel Sportsbook States & App Review 2020

FanDuel PA sports bettingFanDuel sportsbook is currently the largest sportsbook in the US with a near 50% market share.

FanDuel sportsbook is now legally available in the following US States:

  • Pennsylvania
  • New Jersey
  • West Virginia
  • Colorado
  • Illinois
  • Indiana

The downloadable app gives you instant, on the go access to place a bet anywhere where FanDuel has an existing market.

However, in order to collect a winning wager, you must be in the state where the bet was placed. All you need is a laptop, computer, or smartphone with GPS accessibility and internet capabilities.

Overall, I grade the FanDuel sportsbook a B+.

As you will see below, the sign-up bonus, promotions, user experience, and vast amount of sports available to wager on make this sportsbook one of the top available. However, when compared to others, it falls a bit short.

$500 Risk-Free Bet

  • Players who place their first real money wager will receive a site credit equal to the amount of that wager, up to $500, if the wager loses. If the wager wins, you will not receive any promotion bonus.
  • The promotion bonus is credited to your sportsbook within 72 hours.
  • Promotion ends on December 31, 2020.

I would rank this offer third when compared to the other competitors in the market:

SportsbookInitial Offer
FanDuelUp to $500 free
DraftKingsUp to $1,025 free
FoxBetUp to $1,000 free
BetRiversUp to $250 free

As you can see from the table above, DraftKings and FoxBet both have initial promotions that are greater in value when compared to FanDuel. They include a bonus on a player’s first deposit of up to $500. DraftKings also has a $25 free promotion in which no deposit is needed. BetRivers.com has a similar deposit bonus but with a smaller max of $250.

Where FanDuel Gets It Right

User Experience And Mobile Platform FanDuel PA betting app

  • FanDuel was the first PA sportsbook to offer both an iOS and Android app, and they don’t disappoint. FanDuel is an extremely user-friendly platform that is at the top in terms of accessibility.
  • The app allows players to quickly slide to the right or left at the top of their device to find and select the sport they are looking for.
  • FanDuel has a large selection of live bets available for a variety of sports. You can easily place them through the “Live” feature on the top left corner.
  • A “Popular” tab gives users a quick view of some of the most popular events taking place that day to ensure they are getting in on the action.

Fun Promotions And Odds Boosts

Along with the initial deposit bonus, FanDuel Sportsbook also offers some incredible promotions periodically.

They include options like:

Daily Odds Boosts

Inflated odds on a particular side or total in an event gives players an advantage over the book. There is usually a betting limit associated with these, but they present incredible value to the bettor.

In the example below, FanDuel was offering to increase the Philadelphia 76ers spread vs. the Milwaukee Bucks by one point for every 1,000 bets placed. With an NBA spread getting that large it is essentially free money (an earlier NCAAB promotion boosted the spread all the way up to one side being +101.5)!

It doesn’t get much easier than that.

Insurance

Another promotion FanDuel Sportsbooks offers is insurance, which comes in a few different forms. Parlay insurance, for example, goes into effect when a player places a parlay wager consisting of five or more legs.

A parlay is a combination of bets placed together that must all win for the wager to be won. If one of the bets (legs) loses, the entire wager loses. The player gets a max $25 refund per each eligible wager (four eligible wagers per sportsbook account holder per day) in the case of loss.

However, if four of the five legs in your parlay win, you get all your money back. Each individual leg of the parlay must have odds greater than or equal to -200.

Site Credits

Each day, players get a site credit bonus equal to 10 percent of daily net losses or 10 percent of daily net winnings up to $50.

Early Cash Out

This feature allows you to settle a wager for a certain value before the event you have bet on has finished. Your bet is not always eligible for early cash out. However, it is a great feature for someone who isn’t as confident in their bet as they were initially. It’s also a way to take the offered money and guarantee a profit.

A great feature, especially for the higher limit players.

Variety

FanDuel Sportsbook features bets on all major US sports and definitely backs up its slogan “More Ways to Win” with a multitude of options to cash in.

Along with betting the traditional sides and totals for a particular game, you can select the game or event you want to wager on and open up a new screen with an entire list of additional items. Here you can bet on selections such as player props, game props, in-game parlays, and so much more.

If there is something you are looking to bet on, you can find it at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Where FanDuel Can Improve

Customer Service Response Time

FanDuel Sportsbook offers 24/7 support via email and live chat. The phone number isn’t listed on the FanDuel app, but it is 877-689-0662.

In the times where I personally had to call FanDuel support, I found myself on hold for long durations, sometimes even being hung up on in the process. The live chat and email are good options, but depending on your inquiry, these options may not be the most efficient.

Bugs And Login Issues

While using this sportsbook via the iOS app, I found myself having to login multiple times in order for the system to register my account. This was annoying and troublesome, especially when trying to place a last-minute wager.

Deposit Options

  • Visa/Mastercard Debit And Credit Cards
  • FanDuel Prepaid Card – You can apply for this card on the sportsbook’s website. The card automatically attaches itself to the FanDuel Sportsbook account. Funds can be put on the card with Visa, Mastercard, or ACH.
