Fan Duel

Founded in 2009, FanDuel have been at the front of the fantasy football sites and branched out into sports betting during 2018 with a retail sportsbook at Meadowlands Racetrack in New Jersey and are now able to offer online betting after receiving authorization from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE). FanDuel is powered by the team that is behind one of the largest operators in Europe, Betfair/Paddypower -- in fact, you can even use your FanDuel user name and password to sign into and use the Betfair Casino, so no need to create a new account.

If you are a New Jersey resident, you can take part in real money betting.

FanDuel Fantasy Bonus

FanDuel will give new fantasy customers a bonus of $20 once they have made an initial deposit of at least $20; the bonus funds will be added to your account and are not able to be withdrawn and they will expire within 14 days from being issued.

FanDuel Sportsbook Bonus

FanDuel is offering new sportsbook customers (only available to residents in New Jersey) a risk-free introduction to online gambling which is valued up to $500. If your first wager wins, you will keep your stake and winnings as you would expect, but if it loses FanDuel will refund your account with up to $500 in credit for you to place additional bets.

An example would be a $100 bet for the New England Patriots to win their next home game and they lose -- you would receive $100 in bonus funds (which cannot be withdrawn) to place new wagers. Any money that is won with your FanDuel Sportsbook bonus can only be withdrawn after you have wagered the bonus amount one time in the sportsbook -- e.g., with your $100 site credit, you need to place $100 worth of wagers before withdrawing anything won with your bonus funds.

Verdict

FanDuel is one of if not the biggest players in the fantasy league marketplace and as such has a massive pool of players, ranging from newbies to professionals. Coupled with the massive tournaments it offers and big prizes, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more complete fantasy site. And if you are based in New Jersey you get the benefit of being able to participate in their sportsbook betting.
