FanDuel Rewards Program

While FanDuel Fantasy Sports has a loyalty rewards program called the FanDuel Fantasy Club, the online sportsbook does not. Therefore, if FanDuel Sportsbook wants to better compete with other leading betting operators, it should consider offering loyalty rewards.

Available Sports & Betting Options at FanDuel Sportsbook

If you want odds for a diverse range of sports, FanDuel has you covered. This operator covers 20 sports and counting. The list of options includes the US majors like NFL betting and baseball, as well as international hits such as soccer, golf, darts, and rugby.

Note that leagues, teams and events covered vary from state to state. 

How to Sign Up for FanDuel Sportsbook

You can register for a FanDuel account online. Just follow these step-by-step guidelines:

  1. Click (or tap if you're on a mobile device) the blue "PLAY NOW" button in the FanDuel banner directly above. You will be re-directed to the FanDuel site where you can start the sign-up process.
  2. Complete the registration form to open an account and activate the new customer offer. (You don't need a FanDuel promo code)
  3. Allow the software to verify your identity using the last four digits of your SSN.
  4. Enable the geolocation plugin so the software can verify you're in a state where FanDuel Sportsbook is licensed.
  5. Complete the registration process, make a deposit, and start betting.
Betting Features & Options

How to Use FanDuel Sportsbook: Betting Experience and Features

The FanDuel platform is packed with features. That's a positive. However, in some regards, there's a little too much going on. New FanDuel users might need a day or so to familiarize themselves with the layout and where to find all the main options. Some users might be OK and, in reality, it doesn't take long to find your way around. But, it is worth noting that, because FanDuel has a lot of features, the interface is a little busy in places.

Live Odds and Betting

You can see live betting odds for all major sports. Ongoing events are conveniently located in the "Live Now" tab and you can see exactly how many things are happening thanks to a counter. What's also great about the live betting tab is that you can view live statistics and a game overview.

Streaming

As well as statistics and a virtual game overview, FanDuel provides live streams for a variety of sports. That means you can watch everything from football and soccer to tennis via the FanDuel Sportsbook site or app.

Early Cash Out

FanDuel allows you to end bets before their natural conclusion using the cashout feature. Basically, you'll be offered a price to end the bet based on your stake, potential returns, and the assuming likelihood you'll win. If you take the cash offer, the bet ends immediately.

FanDuel Same-Game Parlay

You can bet on multiple outcomes in a single game and string them together as one bet. This is called a same-game parlay (SGP). All parts of the parlay have to be correct for you to win, which means the odds can be extremely generous. 

FanDuel Sports Odds and Odds Boost Offers

Daily odds boosts make an already competitive selection of betting lines even better. In fact, FanDuel goes beyond the norm with Super Boosts, which enhance the odds for bets with two or more outcomes. You can find these in the top menu by clicking or tapping the yellow lightning bolt icon.

Fast FanDuel Sportsbook Cash Out

You can set a withdrawal option as your preferred method. This allows you skip the process of choosing a payment method so you can make a withdrawal quickly.

Stats

FanDuel Sportsbook provides a wealth of statistics on every event it offers odds for. In addition to game/player stats, you can track your own stats via the My Bets Hub. All of this is great for those that love to make data-driven decisions.

FanDuel App UX

FanDuel App Review

App Store Rating:4.9/5 Stars
Google Play Store Rating:4.6/5 Stars
Available States:AZ, CO, CT, IA, IL, IN, LA (permitted parishes only), MI, NJ, NY, PA, TN, VA, WY. NC, VT, KY, MA, KS, WV, MD
Other FanDuel Apps:Casino App,
Daily Fantasy Sports App

Like the desktop site, FanDuel's mobile app has a lot going on. However, the difference here is that certain page elements, namely the bet slip, are hidden from view until you need them. This means the daily odds take pride of place in the center of your screen.

This, in our opinion, makes the mobile betting experience a lot slicker. Then, when you combine this with all the features we've previously described, as well as a full line-up of sportsbook promos, it's a great app for people who want to bet on the go and compares favorably with the best betting apps out there.

How to Download the FanDuel App

  1. Click or tap any of the "PLAY NOW" buttons in the FanDuel banners on this page.
  2. Create a FanDuel account.
  3. Go to the FanDuel Sportsbook website.
  4. Find the FanDuel Sportsbook on Mobile section.
  5. Go to the App Store or the Google Play Store depending on your device.
  6. Search for FanDuel Sportsbook.
  7. Download the app.

Bear in mind, you can only download FanDuel mobile iOS app using iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running on iOS 11.0 or later.

FanDuel Sportsbook App User Reviews

  • "I have several friends that would agree with me when saying that Fanduel is leaps and bounds above the competition. No app is perfect and you’re going to lose far more often than you ever win, but as far as user-friendly, easy to navigate interface, super easy to parlay across every sport, nothing even comes close to Fanduel." - iOS user
  • "Best sportsbook app in the game. Loads fast as lightning, painless login, and a clean interface." - Android user
  • "The location tracker needs some work and the odds need to be adjusted but other than that its good!" - Android user
  • "There’s nothing overly wrong with the app, it’s actually a nice layout & easy to use, it just doesn’t have the extra engagement draws that most of the smaller, slightly less easy-to-use sports books do, which for me personally is more important." - iOS user

Security

Backed by Flutter Entertainment, one of the largest betting and gaming companies in the world, FanDuel has been one of the biggest names in fantasy sports since 2009. That fact alone means it's a reputable place to gamble. 

Flutter Entertainment is the trading name adopted by Paddy Power and Betfair after they merged in 2016. Since then, the company has used its long-standing reputation for excellence to acquire a number of high-profile brands, including FanDuel in 2018 and The Stars Group in 2019.

Being part of this company instantly gives FanDuel a solid standing within the industry. Add to this secure software licenses in multiple US states, fair odds, and guaranteed payouts, and you've got a sportsbook that you can trust implicitly.

Furthermore, with FanDuel, you're covered by SSL encryption software and more on both the website and the app. Also, since Fanduel is licensed in the states in which it operates, your personal details and your money are always safe.

Final Verdict of FanDuel Sportsbook

There's a lot to like about FanDuel Sportsbook. For starters, you'll find competitive odds on an impressive selection of sports. That line-up of sports also includes horse racing, which is something most US bookmakers don't cover.

Secondly, the desktop and mobile apps are extremely well made and packed with Fanduel's sportsbook features. Yes, the interface could be a little overcrowded, but that's more of a personal preference. We also like the bonuses on offer, as well as the fact you don't need to include a FanDuel promo code each time you want to get something extra.

Would a loyalty scheme make the sportsbook better? Possibly. Would we like to see withdrawals processed in less time? Yes. However, these minor issues aside, we can say with confidence that FanDuel Sportsbook is one of the leading online sportsbooks and apps in the US right now, and one that's certainly worth trying.
