FanDuel Sportsbook Review
Best known as being one of the biggest sports daily fantasy sites in the world, FanDuel expanded into the sports betting scene in 2018 after the company was purchased by European gambling juggernaut Paddy Power (owners of Betfair, Paddy Power, Sportsbet and TVG). FanDuel opened its first physical sportsbook in July of 2018 and shortly after, their online sportsbook was launched.
Back in 2016, FanDuel and DraftKings agreed to merge, however, after the Federal Trade Commission threatened litigation over the deal because it would create a monopoly, the merger agreement was terminated in 2017, allowing Paddy Power to swoop shortly after.

Website & Mobile App
Having an international gambling conglomerate like Paddy Power backing you looks like it has some benefits. While online sports betting as a whole is still in relative infancy in the United States, FanDuel Sportsbook are already leaps and bounds ahead of the competition. Their website looks fantastic, it’s easy to use and has some fantastic features.
Like most modern age sportsbook websites, it utilizes the three-panel system. A full menu of sports and racing events can be found on the left-hand side, the range of markets for the selected event in the middle and the bet slip and account information on the right. It’s a model that has become standard in online sportsbooks for one reason, it’s efficient and it works!
One feature that we absolutely love about FanDuel that we have yet to come across on any sportsbook around the globe is the ‘Teaser’ bet slip feature. As well as placing a standard parlay, FanDuel allows you to automatically create a ‘teaser’ by adding multiple selections to your bet slip then adjusting the point line to your liking while the odds automatically adjust in real time.
The mobile app is as well designed as the website is. It features an easy to use user interface and allows you to sort through the wide range of betting markets available with ease, which is what’s most important when you are betting on the go.
You can access the FanDuel Sportsbook mobile betting app on both iOS and Android devices.
As we mentioned above, the ‘Teaser’ feature is one of our favorite in site features we have come across in online sports betting. As well as that, FanDuel offer a great initiative called ‘Training Camp’. In Training Camp, new sports betting customers can understand the ins and outs of betting with clearly described screenshots, making their experience at FanDuel much easier.
The only downfall to FanDuel at the moment is their range of sports. Currently, they only offer markets on nine different sports. However, they cover those sports extremely well and we expect that number to grow in the near future.
Available Sports on FanDuel: Basketball, Football, Hockey, Baseball, Boxing, Golf, Tennis, Soccer, MMA
