FanDuel Review

FanDuel Sportsbook is legal in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana and West Virginia. The company — which you probably know from being one of the leaders in the daily fantasy sports space — is owned by Paddy Power BetFair, one of the largest gaming conglomerates in the world. FanDuel is not a scam and it most definitely is legit, as it is required to follow the rules and regulations set forth by the states in which it operates.

Other FanDuel Benefits

NFL Close Loss Insurance

Nothing is worse than being so close, yet so far, from cashing your moneyline bet. FanDuel offers a great promotion to soften the blow a little bit. When you bet a pregame moneyline and your team loses by six or fewer points, you’ll receive a refund of up to $50. You can do this on multiple NFL games in a given week, too.

You must opt in to this promotion on the Promotions tab to be eligible.

$25 Same Game Parlay Insurance for NFL

Under each NFL game on FanDuel, there’s a tab for a “Same Game Parlay,” where you can combine various markets into one bet. This particular promotion will refund you (up to $25) if one leg of your parlay doesn’t hit.

To qualify, your parlay has to be at least three legs and cannot have any bets that are more than -200 odds. The payout for the parlay must be at least +300.

College Hoops + NBA Win Bonus

If you place a bet of $25 or more on the moneyline of FanDuel’s featured college basketball or NBA game of the day, you’ll receive $3 in site credit for every point that the team wins by.

NBA Third Quarter Insurance

Place a moneyline bet on any NBA game and if your team ends the third quarter with the lead but loses the game, FanDuel will refund your bet up to $50 in site credit.

Multi-Sport Parlay Insurance

If you place a parlay of five or more legs in any sport, FanDuel will refund up to $25 if you hit all of your legs except for one.

FanDuel Mobile Betting and Geolocation

Through the FanDuel app, you can place online wagers if you’re located in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana and West Virginia. The app uses geolocation to determine whether you are in state lines in order to place a bet. You can open and fund accounts when you’re not in those aforementioned states; you just cannot bet.

FanDuel’s customer service team is available 24/7, by email at sportsbook@fanduel.com or by phone at 1-877-689-0662 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET.
