Summary

Fanduel Sportsbook Rating

FanDuel leans heavily on its daily fantasy sports experience to create an interface that will be familiar to Fanduel fantasy users. FanDuel, which was purchased by European gaming leader BetFair now offers the best sports betting menu in the US.

The Fanduel app is first rate. Simple to navigate and the most common bets are easily available . The welcome bonus offer is about average for the industry and the rewards program is mediocre at best but neither are a reason to sign up. The big draw is that Fanduel is a widely known commodity and will be moving into more and more states. This gives a certainty that when the inevitable shake-up in sports betting happens, that Fanduel will be one of the sportsbooks still standing.

Fanduel has leveraged its experience in fantasy sports to offer player prop betting that allows same game bets. This means if you like Tom Brady to go over on passing yards and you like the Bucs to cover the spread. You can now parlay that bet. Right now Fanduel is the only sportsbook to offer this feature but because of its instant popularity I expect other will be forced to begin offering this betting option soon.

FanDuel Key Features

Live In Game Wagering

FanDuel has an excellent live betting menu. If you are not using the “live betting” option right now you really need to start. The opportunity to wait until you watch half of the first quarter before making an NFL or College Football bet is invaluable. Another feature that Fanduel really excels on is live prop betting. You can bet on a quarter passing yards in the middle of the game. This gives you a chance to watch how the quarterback is throwing the ball and take into account the game score before making your bet.

Early Cash Out

If you bet offshore then this is a feature you may have used before. The opportunity to cash out BEFORE that game is over. The cash out amount is based on the likelihood of winning your bet. The more likely you are to cash, the higher the return offer on your bet. I like this one for baseball games if the starter is starting to get his pitching count to high and I don’t trust the bullpen. 

Live Streaming

Want to watch the game you are betting on? Duh. Fanduel has the deep pockets to increase the number of television operators it is partnering with. This is a vital component to expanding sports betting across the county.

Casino

Betfair purchased Fanduel and brought with it a top flight casino games menu. If you like to play slots and the table games then you have a first rate online casino available.  

Daily Fantasy

This is what made Fanduel and it is still one of the best in the business. Play daily fantasy sports instead of wagering? Excellent interface, menu and easy to get started.

Fanduel Sports Available

Fanduel Sports Betting App

FanDuel has the experience and deep pockets to build a first rate sports betting app. Available for iOS and Android. It is easy to use and provides all of the sports bets that the website offers. I would recommend using the computer interface at first to get used to how the menu is structed and then using the sports betting app. Once you are used to how the menus are laid out and know how long it takes you to get around then it is easy to use. When it comes time for your first bet, leave yourself a little extra time.

FanDuel Sportsbook Getting Started

FanDuel Sportsbook app uses geo location technology to make sure you are in the state where your sportsbook account is located. For the most part there are few problems with getting your location right. If you live near or will be betting near the border. Then try making a small bet to make sure your location is reporting accurately.

FanDuel Sportsbook accounts have a $10 minimum deposit.

Making a Legal Bet

Making bets is easy with the app or on your computer. The app screen has useful easy to read links at the top for you to choose the sports you want to wager on. Choose NFL or MLB and a list of games available is presented. Spreads, totals and money lines are readily available. When you find the bet you want to make and press the side. The area will be highlighted, and the next option will be to select a betting amount. Once you have done this a “confirm bet” overlay will need to be pressed for the bet to take place. You also have the option to add bets for a parlay.

MLB live betting options include; run line, hits, totals, extra innings, next inning scoring and more. One frustrating thing is making a bet and waiting for the bet to process. Sometimes the bet will be declined because the odds have been taken down while the bet was processing. If you are going to make live bets then you will need to be fast because odds change constantly.

Below is an example of a typical MLB day.

FD Sportsbook Support

This is an area that Fanduel needs to upgrade. Unfortunatly Fanduel is starting to act like a big tech company and is trying to funnel everyone to sending in a ticket instead of dealing with customers in real time.

To submit a ticket to Fanduel use this “Fanduel Ticket Link

To call Customer Support Department (646-930-0860). Don’t expect much help from them. The best way to describe CS is low paid people reading off of a script.
