FanDuel Mobile Sportsbook Launch Information

While retail FanDuel Sportsbook locations have been live since 2019, FanDuel is among the first sportsbook operators to launch mobile sports betting in New York. Starting on January 6th, 2022, the pre-launch window for registration is open. With a pre-launch registration, users are eligible for $100 in site credit that can be used toward a bet. On Saturday, January 8th at 9 AM EST, FanDuel will officially launch their mobile app and open sports wagering for customers located in New York.

To go along with the launch, there are a flurry of promotions for new customers. The largest of which Is focused on a risk-free bet up to $1,000. In addition, bettors can capitalize on 30-to-1 odds on the College Football National Championship—Bet $5, Win $150 on either team to win their matchup.

FanDuel Pros and Cons for New York Players

Pros

  • Wide Availability: If you live in a state where sports betting is legal, it’s very likely you live in a state where FanDuel is already operating, either via its online or mobile platform or through a brick-and-mortar retail sportsbook.
  • Fantasy Sports Crossover: FanDuel was already one of the United States’ two largest daily fantasy sports operators, meaning bettors who also enjoy both can play both while using the same account.
  • Competitive Odds: The odds offered on FanDuel are often some of the better ones in the business from a bettor’s perspective. This is particularly true on more widely-bet markets and bigger games, and especially on wagers on total goals or points scored.
  • Generous Beginner Promos: FanDuel offers a risk-free bet of up to $1,000. In other words, if you make a $1,000 risk-free bet and it loses, $1,000 will be returned to your account. You must make additional wagers equivalent to $1,000 before you can withdraw those funds, however. But if you’re planning on being a regular bettor—even if you’re playing relatively small amounts of money—you’d be foolish not to take advantage of this offer, whether you bet $1,000 with your first wager or a smaller amount.

Cons

  • Odds Format: While most users will be plenty happy to use the standard American odds (+100) format, FanDuel is one of a few sportsbooks that does not allow users to change their odds to a decimal (2.00) or fractional (1-1) formats. Some bettors find decimal odds, in particular, to be more user-friendly because they can make it easier to compare and compute implied probabilities.
