FanDuel Sportsbook

ONLINE SPORTSBOOK

FanDuel was one of the first companies to form following the rise of the daily fantasy sports industry. It was founded in 2009 and is now one of the biggest gaming companies in the U.S. Following the overturn of PASPA in 2018, FanDuel made the natural expansion to get into sports betting and has since launched sportsbooks in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Indiana and West Virginia. They’ll likely expand into every legal state and should be a major player in the industry for years to come.

Bonuses & Promos from FanDuel - 4.5 / 5 Stars

FanDuel has a good sign-up offer that requires only a 1x rollover, one of the better marks in the industry. While it doesn’t offer the volume of big promotions like some books, it does make an effort to give promotions to new and existing customers, which is uncommon currently.

Sports Betting Mobile App

.checked { color: #E28B22; font-size:22px; }

FanDuel: Sports Betting Mobile App - 4.5 / 5 Stars

FanDuel’s app is high-tech and easy to use, as they’ve been in the business of developing their products for over a decade thanks to their beginnings as a DFS company. The only major downside is that it can be difficult to contact support via the app.

Registering & Cashiering

FanDuel: Registering & Cashiering - 5.0 / 5 Stars

We haven’t heard of major issues registering, depositing or withdrawing at FanDuel. They recently updated their organization so users can have just one wallet for the sportsbook, casino and DFS products, which is a big deal for customers.

Betting Options

FanDuel: Betting Options - 4.5 / 5 Stars

FanDuel offers just about any market that’s legal within the state it operates in. There are a few niche markets like specific props that may not be offered, but overall FanDuel is among the best U.S. books in setting odds for nearly every sport and league.

FanDuel vs Other Sportsbooks

FanDuel: Competitor Comparison - 4.5 / 5 Stars

FanDuel is already one of the biggest sportsbooks in the U.S., and it excels with its solid app and regular offers to help retain customers. While it can offer higher holds than some books, it’s fairly standard across the board, allowing users to find value on more niche markets.

Bonuses & Promotions

It can often be tough to win long-term at sports betting, particularly because of the juice -- the “tax,” sometimes called the “vig” -- charged on each bet. That means it’s very important for bettors to take advantage of promotions, whether it’s a sign-up offer or daily booster, in order to maximize expected value.

Sign Up Offer

FanDuel has a nice sign-up offer for new users: They’ll give you a risk-free bet up to $500.

How it works: If you sign up for an account at FanDuel and deposit at least $10, you’re eligible for your first bet to be without risk up to $500. The first bet made on your bet slip with the new account is what will count towards this offer. If it wins, nothing happens; you’ll receive your winnings in cash. If it loses, you’ll be credited in site credits for the amount of that bet up to $500.Note that this is a one-time offer on your first bet, so make sure to make it count! If your first bet is only $10, you’ll be credited just $10.

One positive about this offer is that any subsequent winnings on the risk-free bet -- if you lose the first bet, get credited and then win with those credits -- require only a 1x rollover. A rollover just means you have to wager the same amount as the credit in order for subsequent winnings to be converted to cash. If you have $500 in site credits from the risk-free bet, you’ll have to wager $500 in order to withdraw that to your bank account.

The 1x rollover may seem odd to someone new to the betting world, but it’s commonplace among all sportsbooks.

Web Experience

FanDuel has been perfecting its daily fantasy desktop site and app for a decade now, so it’s no surprise that they have one of the best sites and apps for sports betting now, too.

The desktop site is sleek and easy to navigate. On the homepage, users can easily find the sport they want to bet, along with live markets, odds boosts and notable promotions. Everything is housed in one screen, which means users don’t have to reload pages and have multiple tabs up at once. The bet slip experience is very user-friendly, as it pops up on the right side of the screen after clicking on a bet. It’s easy to change a bet from straight to a teaser, parlay or round robin as well.

Within sports, the navigation is also set up well; it’s very easy to find sub-markets like game and player props, head-to-head matchups and more. It could organize markets a little better -- FanDuel has separate tables for related markets like a golfer’s odds to finish in the top-five, top-10, top-20, etc. -- but that’s a minor quibble for an overall solid web and app product.

FanDuel has recently updated their organization so users can have just one single wallet for sports betting, daily fantasy and the casino. Instead of moving money around to take advantage of each product, users can deposit just once and use their money wherever they’d like seamlessly.

THE BAD
FanDuel App's Negatives

Finding smaller markets.

While it’s easy to locate a market like player props on the desktop site, it’s a little more challenging on the app, where you have to click into a specific game.

No rewards program.

FanDuel’s daily fantasy sports product has a rewards program that gives back site credit to users for playing, but the sportsbook does not yet have any system.

Lack of Support.

FanDuel makes it difficult to get in touch with their support team. Clicking the “contact support” button in the app takes you out of the app and onto the mobile site. Once there, it’s challenging to find out how to contact them.

Fanduel vs Other Sportsbooks

While sign-up offers, promos and user experience are all crucial factors in selecting a sportsbook, the most sophisticated bettors are often worried about the price. We can compare books in this regard a couple of ways:

  • Juice: Also referred to as the “vig,” this is the tax a sportsbook charges for a bet. The standard odds for a spread bet is -110, which means you have to pay $110 to win $10. That extra $10 is the tax.
  • Hold: Similar to the juice, hold is defined as the percentage a sportsbook keeps for every dollar wagered. It’s a better metric to measure for moneylines, for example.

Most online U.S. books -- in states where betting is entirely online and not regulated by the state lottery, at least -- have standard juice on your typical bets. Take, for example, the juice on spread bets for the NFL:

There’s no major difference between sportsbooks: It is commonplace to get -110 on both sides for both the spread and the over/under.

In terms of hold on moneylines, here’s how FanDuel has compared with other U.S. books in the past:

FanDuel is on the higher end of U.S. sportsbooks in hold percentage, and we’ve also found that they’re often beat in price in some futures markets like golf. It really depends on the specific market, though: For NBA title odds, for example, they offer superior odds than a bunch of the biggest U.S. books. That highlights the importance of line shopping and having multiple accounts; FanDuel is a worthy addition to your sportsbook portfolio.

In general, for some smaller markets like player props, FanDuel is competitive and offers standard pricing. Whereas a book like BetMGM can offer up to -118 on both sides for some props or head-to-head matchups, FanDuel is more in-line with DraftKings in offering -110 standard odds.

FOX BET Frequently Asked Questions

Where is FOX Bet Sportsbook legal?

FOX Bet operates its mobile sportsbook in both New JerseyPennsylvania and the new state to the sports betting scene, Colorado. It is owned by the The Stars Group (TSG) in partnership with Fox Sports.

How do I sign up for an account at FOX Bet?

Follow this link.

You’ll be asked for information that is standard in creating sports betting accounts, including your name, email address, street address, a username and password, phone number and social security number.

How do I deposit money into my FOX Bet account?

FOX Bet offers a variety of options for customers looking to deposit money, but the number of options differs a bit depending on your state.

  • PayPal (NJ, PA, and CO)

Simply follow the steps in the FOX Bet deposit menu and use your PayPal account.

  • Credit/Debit Card (NJ, PA and CO)

Once again, this follows the fairly standard process of using credit or debit cards online. Be aware, though, that many banks will block online gaming transactions, so you may need to try multiple cards, or reach out to your bank to attempt to resolve that issue if it arises.

FOX Bet accepts MasterCard and Visa, both of which are also available for Fast Deposits.

  • Online banking (ACH) or Instant eChecks (NJ, PA, and CO)

This option allows you to deposit directly through your bank account, without entering any credit card or other financial information. Simply find “Instant eChecks” in the cashier or deposit menu (found in the Real Money tab on the mobile app) on your desktop client, app or web interface, and follow the instructions from there.

Like a normal check, eChecks do not transfer funds from your bank right away. You will see the amount of your check reflected in your playable balance, but you will not be able to transfer the money elsewhere or withdraw until the eCheck funds are actually received (which could take up to seven days).

If the eCheck funds are denied for whatever reason by your bank, you may face restrictions in the future regarding the use of eChecks.

Fast Deposits — more on those below — are also available through eChecks.

  • Skrill (NJ and PA)

Skrill is essentially an electronic wallet that you can store with funds in your local currency, and it’s often an easier method of transferring money for online purchases, or in this case, to fund your FOX Bet account.

Once again, you’ll find the option to deposit using Skrill in the cashier or deposit menu, depending on which interface you’re using.

Skrill is also available to use for Fast Deposits.

  • Resorts Casino Cage (NJ)

For those in or around New Jersey looking to deposit money non-electronically, you always have the option of stopping by the Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. There, you can head to the cashier cage and make your deposit in person.

The Resorts Casino is located at 1133 Boardwalk, Atlantic City, NJ, 08401.

  • PayNearMe (NJ, PA and CO)

If you’re looking to add money to your account using cash without visiting a casino, the Pay with Cash option gives you that ability.

Simply click the PayNearMe option in your cashier or deposit menu, and register your account. You’ll follow steps that will lead to the creation of a PaySlip that you can bring to a 7-Eleven (along with your cash) in New Jersey, Pennsylvania or Colorado, and the clerk will be able to add your cash amount to your balance by scanning the slip.

The PaySlip can be used multiple times, as it will be personalized to only your Stars Account.

  • VanillaDirect (NJ)

VanillaDirect is another cash option that involves bringing a requested barcode to a participating location.

Simply request the VanillaDirect barcode in your deposit menu, and have it scanned at one of over 50,000 retail locations nationwide, then you’ll be able to add funds to your account by paying cash, and you’ll see your account reflect the payment within minutes.

  • Stars Transfer (NJ, PA, and CO)

Similar to an eCheck, the Stars Transfer avoids the use of credit/debit cards by linking up to your online banking account for a safe, fast deposit.

  • PokerStars Play+ Card (NJ)

The PokerStars Play+ Card is a prepaid card that is synced to your Stars Account, making for easy deposits and withdrawals.

You can sign up for the card in the same menu you’d use to deposit funds in any other way, and once registered you’ll be able to deposit the same way.

What is “Fast Deposit”?

As it sounds, Fast Deposit is an option that allows for players to make deposits quickly — more specifically, without leaving their current game.

As you are playing a game, you may see the Fast Deposit icon pop up, meaning you have the option of instantly adding funds to your account without leaving the game.

Instant eChecks, Skrill, and credit/debit card payments are accepted for Fast Deposits.

Does FOX Bet match deposits for new customers?

Yes. FOX Bet has a one-time deposit match option for both new and existing customers.

The book will match 50% of your chosen deposit up to a $500 bonus, meaning a $1,000 deposit could result in a bonus of $500.

Beware, though, that the bonus payment will come in increments of $10 for every $250 wagered, meaning you’ll have to play through $250 several times in order to see your full bonus (depending on the amount you wagered).

It should also be noted that bets more heavily favored than -200 will not count toward your promo wager amount.

What promo code is required to get the FOX Bet deposit match?

There is no code required. Simply follow this link to their promotions page.

Does FOX Bet have any free bet offers for new customers?

Yes! Perhaps the most attractive promotion on FOX Bet is the $500 risk-free bet for first-time users. Whether your bet wins or loses, FOX Bet will match your bet (up to $500) in bonus money.

To take advantage of the offer:

  • Place your first real money bet (on a sports wager no more heavily favored than -200).
  • Wait (up to 24 hours) to see the amount of your bet matched.
  • Within 30 days, play through (wager) the amount of your bonus on sports bets no more heavily favored than -200.

How do I withdraw money from my FOX Bet account?

To request a withdrawal, you’ll need to visit the “Cashier” menu, select “Withdraw” and enter your requested amount. The next screen will provide details on how your withdrawal will be processed.

As far as your withdrawal options, they are similar to your deposit options, with a few limitations depending on your state.

In New Jersey, you can withdraw through Skrill, Instant eChecks, PayPal, VanillaDirect, your PokerStars Play+ Card, or at the Resorts Casino Cage.

In Pennsylvania, your withdrawal options are Skrill, PayPal and Instant eChecks.

And in Colorado, you can choose between PayPal and Instant eChecks.

How long does it take for me to receive my money after requesting a withdrawal?

The various methods of withdrawal have differing timeframes when it comes to actually receiving money. The processing time may also differ depending on whether your withdrawal method is the same as your deposit method was, and whether your withdrawal amount is higher than your deposit was.

Instant eChecks are processed immediately (or within an hour for higher withdrawal amounts), and you should expect to see the funds on your statement within 3-10 business days.

Skrill and PayPal withdrawals are similarly processed immediately, with slightly longer (up to an hour) delays for larger withdrawals. Once processed, though, these funds will appear to you in a few minutes.

PokerStarsPay withdrawals get sent for processing within 24 hours except on weekends. From that point it may take 3-4 business days to appear in your account.

Withdrawals made at the Resorts Casino cage may take up to two hours to process, and you’ll be notified via email when your funds are ready.

Does FOX Bet charge fees?

There are no fees for registering or having an account.

FOX Bet does not charge deposit fees for using credit/debit cards or Skrill, either, but all card and Skrill users should check for any fees that may come from their side.

How old do I have to be to place bets at FOX Bet?

You must be at least 21 years old to bet legally in the United States.

What sports are available to bet at FOX Bet?

FOX Bet offers a wide variety of sports, including …

Football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, golf, tennis, UFC, eSports, darts, motor sports, table tennis, Aussie Rules football, rugby, and more.

Does FOX Bet offer live sports betting?

Yes, FOX Bet does offer live betting, and even offers in-game odds on some smaller-market sports like table tennis.

To access all of the live betting options, find the “In-Game” button (usually to the right of the “Home” button across the top banner), and you’ll be presented with every current game available to live bet.

FOX Bet also offers a live “cash-out” option, allowing bettors the live opportunity to take a calculated portion of their winnings on a bet that’s currently taking place.

This can be useful for bettors looking to guarantee a profit on a winning bet they think still has a chance to lose, or limit their losses on one that looks like a sure loss.

How do FOX Bet’s custom bets work?

FOX Bet offers a unique option for bettors to create their own proposition bets by using the hashtag #CustomBet on Twitter. From there, FOX Bet will decide if the prop is fair and may place the bet on their site.

Does FOX Bet offer a refer-a-friend bonus?

There is no refer-a-friend bonus offer at FOX Bet.

What devices can I use to deposit or wager at FOX Bet?

FOX Bet offers users three platforms from which to choose: a downloadable desktop client, a mobile app, and the web interface.

Is the FOX Bet app free?

Yes. Both the iOS and Andriod apps are free, and allow anyone to create an account and sample games from anywhere.

For those wishing to play for real money, however, you’ll need deposit money into your account, and be in New Jersey or Pennsylvania with your location services turned on.

Can I cancel a bet I’ve made?

No, not really. But FOX Bet’s cash-out option allows you to take your wager off the table before the event has started or is complete. The amount you’ll receive will depend on the odds of your bet as well as the current state of the given game or event.

What’s the difference between FOX Bet and Bovada?

The major difference — and the one that should matter to you — is legality.

FOX Bet is legal, and backed by a government body.

Bovada, on the other hand, is an offshore book, which means it’s not backed by any sort of government body. In other words, your funds are never truly safe, and in a scenario in which they decided to defraud you or refuse a withdrawal, you’d have no real course of action.

Other benefits to using FOX Bet as opposed to illegal sportsbooks:

1. You can more easily deposit, since your options include anything from bank accounts, online payment accounts, credit/debit cards, and even cash.

2. First-time players can end up with total bonuses of up to $1,000.

3. You’ll get your money much more quickly when withdrawing.

Other FOX Bet Benefits
