FanDuel Sportsbook is Offering a Great Deal for Colts Bettors This Week

Bob Wankel - December 14, 2019

There are all different kinds of interesting deals available at the various legal online sportsbooks, but FanDuel Sportsbook Indiana is currently running one of the more creative promotions we’ve seen with its “Spread the Love” campaign this weekend.

For every 250 bettors in the state of Indiana that back the Colts against the spread on Monday night when they play the Saints, FanDuel is boosting the spread by one full point.

The power of numbers. People helping people. It’s a beautiful thing, and it’s also a unique offer for new bettors that varies from the standard deposit bonuses and bet boosts customary of the market.

Of course, FanDuel also offers a $500 risk-free bet to new users that download the app right here .

Currently, the Colts are a 9.5-point underdog, which means FanDuel users in the Hoosier State have the opportunity to create additional point spread value by lifting the line well into the double digits.

FanDuel Sportsbook Is Coming To Live! Casino and Hotel in South Philly

Craig Dudek - December 13, 2019

FanDuel Group and The Cordish Companies announced a partnership that will place the popular FanDuel Sportsbook in Cordish’s casino properties across the country. This partnership combines the efforts of two established leaders in the casino and sportsbook worlds with The Cordish Companies serving over 55 million visitors a year and FanDuel Group having over 8.5 million users in 45 states.

“This partnership allows us to capitalize on the incredible success of sports betting to date and bring FanDuel’s top sports betting operations to Cordish destinations across the United States,” said Matt King, CEO of the FanDuel Group.

By partnering with FanDuel Group, Cordish Companies can now offer special promotions and unique sports betting opportunities to all of their Live! properties.

The first two installments of this partnership will be at Cordish’s Live Casino & Hotel Philadelphia, which is being built next to the city’s sports complex, and the Live! Casino in Westmoreland County, PA. Philadelphians are already familiar with The Cordish Companies through Xfinity Live!, a dining and entertainment venue located between the stadiums that is a hot spot before, during and after all of the games.

By combining forces with The Cordish Companies, FanDuel Group has secured a second location near a professional sports stadium. Their other location at the Meadowlands Racetrack next to MetLife Stadium put them in an excellent spot to bring in bettors from New York and those their way to game. Having a physical book next to stadiums that house four professional sports team is a big win in a crowded market.

The Cordish Companies and FanDuel Group are now working on acquiring sports betting licenses in states where it is legalized and are well positioned to jump into new markets when they open their doors to the industry.

FanDuel Sportsbook Is Doubling Over Bets on Thanksgiving

Kyle Scott - November 28, 2019

FanDuel is America’s leading online sportsbook, and for Thanksgiving, a uniquely American holiday, they are rolling out a special promotion for NFL games. Dubbed “Thanksgiving Double Winnings,” FanDuel Sportsbook will pay out double your winnings on over-under bets on any of the three Thanksgiving Day NFL games, up to $50.

fanduel sportsbook

Here’s how it works.

FanDuel Sportsbook – which is typically not as promotional as DraftKings Sportsbook, which is running a Thanksgiving risk-free parlay, or FOX Bet, which is offering $25 cash back on any bet for the Bears-Lions game – is going above and beyond today. They will allow you to place an over-under bet on any of the three NFL games and receive a bonus of up to $50. The bet must be placed pregame.

For each totals bet that hits, FanDuel Sportsbook will double your winnings up to $50. This means that if you place three successful over-under bets for all three games, you can get up to $150 in bonus site credit.

Keep in mind that with all sportsbook promotions bonus money is typically not eligible to be withdrawn immediately. You typically have seven days to bet the bonus money in your account. If you win another bet with the money, then you are eligible to withdraw it. But, it is a way to build your bankroll and give yourself some funds to continue betting with.

FanDuel also offers new sportsbook users a $500 risk-free bet , which cannot be combined with this offer. But the Thanksgiving offer is available to all customers across the board.

FanDuel Sportsbook is the leader in handle in New Jersey and Pennsylvania by a rather wide margin. As such, they don’t have to be as promotional as some of their peers. So we find that while they do offer a slew of ongoing odds boosts and specials, they are typically not as aggressive or enticing as what you might see from, say, FOX Bet, an app that we like a lot.

But for Thanksgiving, this is one of the better offers you will find from FanDuel Sportsbook. So whether you’re a new user or a current player, it’s worth placing a few totals bets. Meanwhile, you can combine them with the parlay offers from the other sportsbooks and really, um, gobble up the winnings.

FanDuel Sportsbook Is Taking Bets on League of Legends in New Jersey This Weekend

Kyle Scott - November 8, 2019

Following the news yesterday that the New Jersey DGE will allow NJ sportsbooks to take action on the League of Legends esports final this Sunday, FanDuel Sportsbook has announced it will take action online in New Jersey.

FanDuel has listed G2 Esports and FunPlus Phoenix both at -110 in their head-to-head League of Legends Champions final.

You can bet on it on the FanDuel Sportsbook app, only in New Jersey.

fanduel sportsbook

FanDuel Sportsbook is offering -110 on both teams for each of the first two maps as well, meaning, yes, you can microbet on esports at FanDuel Sportsbook.

The max bet is $1,000 and there will be no in-play betting, per the DGE, however.

The big League of Legends World Championship final will see the winner take home 37.5% of the total prize pool, which should be worth over $2 million. The runner-up will take home about a third of that– 13.5% of the prize pool.

FanDuel taking action on esports is big news in and of itself.

Yesterday we detailed how New Jersey would be the first state outside of Nevada to take action on an esporting event.

Some physical sportsbooks such as Borgata, where Howard Eskin is said to have placed the first legal esports bet in New Jersey on Thursday, are also offering action.

FanDuel Sportsbook, however, is the biggest online betting operator in the United States in terms of handle, and their offering of action on esports endorses the trend. We’ve heard rival DraftKings Sportsbook also plans to offer action, but as of yet it is not listed in their app.

Esports are quickly gaining traction in the United States. And with a consumer base that is aging into their twenties (legal betting age), the opportunity to take action on these video game tournaments is potentially massive.

Regulators have thus far steered clear of this due to some concerns over betting irregularities and the data feeds not being as reliable as what we’re used to with major professional sports. But make no doubt, the opportunity is there.

FanDuel Sportsbook becomes the first online betting app in New Jersey to offer action on esports. You can head over to FanDuel and claim a $500 risk-free bet when you sign up right here when you bet on one of your two favorite teams in the League of Legends Final.

FanDuel Sports Equinox: What It Is and How to Play

Russ Joy - October 25, 2019

If you’ve spent any time listening to the radio, watching TV, or browsing the worldwide web over the last few weeks, you’ve likely heard about the FanDuel Sportsbook Sports Equinox free play promotion.

The number one question we’ve been getting: What the heck is it and how do I play? Fear not, friends, we’re here for you.

On Sunday, October 27, all four major sports leagues may be in action on the same day– a rare event dubbed “the Sports Equinox.” FanDuel is celebrating by running a free play contest, where users who select 20 or more winners will win a share of a large cash prize pool, currently valued to be over $345,000.

FanDuel Sportsbook, which recently launched in Indiana, is also available in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and West Virginia. Players in all states can participate.

How to Play

FanDuel Sportsbook equinox free play

If you sign up with FanDuel Sportsbook here , you’ll be greeted by the Free Play signup page.

Click through the link, and you’ll be taken to a page featuring 26 games taking place across the four major sports on Sunday, October 27.

If you pick 20 or more of the 26 games correctly, you’ll get cut of the overall payout– advertised to be $345,000 or more.

It’s worth noting that the payout is still pending, due to the potential for the “Full Equinox” being downgraded to a “Partial Equinox.”

What?

You see, the entire thing hinges on whether or not the World Series will go to Game 5 in Washington. The answer to that question will affect the overall payout potential for interested players.

Let’s take a look at the list of games and favorites, which have been noted via the inclusion of an asterisk.

FanDuel Sportsbook Is Now Live in Indiana: Here’s How To Play

Kyle Scott - October 22, 2019

FanDuel Sportsbook Indiana is now officially available as both an iOS and Android app.

Just weeks after the launch of DraftKings Sportsbook IN and BetRivers IN, FanDuel became the latest sportsbook to join Indiana online sports betting.

The Betfair-backed brand, which is dominating the market in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, enters its fourth state with the release of FanDuel Sportsbook Indiana. Is is also available in West Virginia.

Here’s how to download the app and get a $500 risk-free bet.

FanDuel Sportsbook Indiana App

The FanDuel Sportsbook app is now available to all users in Indiana— one need not live there, you just must be present in the state when you bet. It is available on both iOS and Android (direct download).

If you sign up here , you can claim a $500 risk-free bet and then download the app.

FanDuel offers one app available across several states. This may not seem like a big deal, but other sports betting apps have rolled out separate apps for different states to comply with local regulations.

FanDuel, like DraftKings, was able to build in the required technology to determine a player’s location and then adjust the app accordingly for the local market.

Each state, Indiana included, requires specific betting restrictions, exceptions, and gambling addiction messaging, and other operators have struggled to adapt by offering one uniform app.

FanDuel offers an array of betting options, including spread, moneyline, total, parlays, teasers, and more. Live betting is particularly strong, with FanDuel Sportsbook offering some of the quickest live betting odds among any betting site.

Users can can check out promos such as close loss insurance, contests, and frequent odds boosts.

 

Partnership

FanDuel is launching its sports betting app in conjunction with Blue Chip and Belterra casinos, owned by Boyd Gaming.

This means FanDuel will use Boyd’s gaming license to back their app in Indiana.

Sportsbook operators have to partner with licensed casinos in each state. Since FanDuel itself doesn’t have a full gaming license, it becomes the front-end provider for Boyd, giving both companies a share of profits.

Users may notice some Blue Chip or Belterra branding in the app, along with some casino-specific flavor, in addition to Indiana Gaming Control messaging.

FanDuel is well positioned for success in Indiana. Thanks to already being in the state with its daily fantasy product, they have a large customer base to which they can market. Combined with the customer lists of Blue Chip and Belterra, FanDuel has a significant number of potential players at launch. And as one of the first online sportsbooks in the state, they will benefit from the overall interest in sports betting.

FanDuel Sportsbook is also available through the web in Indiana.

FanDuel Sportsbook Is Offering The Sixers at 76-1 Odds To Win The NBA Championship

Kyle Scott - October 21, 2019

FanDuel Sportsbook is offering the Sixers at 76 to 1 odds to win the NBA Championship.

You read that right. FanDuel, which hasn’t been as promotional as some of its competitors, perhaps because it is obliterating the online sports betting market in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, is coming on strong with their promo offer to get +7600 odds on Philly to win it all.

To put this in perspective, the Sixers are currently listed at FanDuel at +750. This is a 10x odds boost.

fanduel sportsbook

How It Works

The offer is available to new FanDuel Sportsbook customers only.

If you sign up using this link and enter promo code PROCESS (have to do both), you can place a bet of up to $10 on the Sixers to win the NBA Championship at +7600 odds. If they win, that would payout $760.

The offer is good through November 3.

The bonus would be paid as a site credit and come with a play-through requirement, meaning you will need to bet the winnings within a week of receiving them before the money is eligible to be withdrawn.

So this isn’t exactly free money. But play-through requirements like this are the norm, and a 76-1 odds boost on a favorite is a pretty strong offer.

 

Sixers Betting Promos

FanDuel Sportsbook may have beat a Sixers partner at their own game.

Earlier this month, the Sixers entered into a partnership with Parx Sportsbook to offer $25 in site credit for each Sixers win. Not a bad deal, but given the superiority of the FanDuel Sportsbook app in PA and in generating buzz, this boost will likely attract much more attention.

Sportsbooks in Pennsylvania are eager to sign up new players, especially heading into a new season. It looks like the Sixers will be the team in Philly for a little while, and getting customers to sign up early in the season gives FanDuel Sportsbook a chance of being their sportsbook of choice throughout the winter.

Some other things to nibble on? The Sixers to win the conference at +220 and Joel Embiid to win defensive player of the year at +750. That sounds like positive EV to me. At least the 76-1 Sixers odds boost is. Here they come!

FanDuel Sportsbook Completely Obliterates The PA Betting Market in September

Kyle Scott - October 17, 2019

FanDuel Sportsbook completely obliterated the PA online sports betting market in the month of September, according to a recently released report from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

With a full month under its belt in August, FanDuel Sportsbook PA rocketed to the top of the online betting space in Pennsylvania in September, taking in over $85 million in handle (bets) in the month.

This marked the first time Sugarhouse Sportsbook had not led in the nascent market in Pennsylvania. FanDuel, which also is the largest online operator in New Jersey, has officially cemented itself as the most popular legal sports betting app in the early days of online sports betting in the United States.

Total Bets

Here’s the full breakdown in terms of handle that online sportsbooks in Pennsylvania took in for the month of September:

  • FanDuel Sportsbook: $85 million
  • Sugarhouse Sportsbook: $31 million
  • BetRivers: $23 million
  • Parx Sportsbook: $13 million
  • FOX Bet: $4.5 million

This is really interesting on several fronts.

First of all, FanDuel’s sheer dominance is impressive, no doubt about it. But we are shocked at how far behind FOX Bet PA, our recommended app in PA, is from the rest of the pack. Continue Reading
