I was super disappointed this year when my buddies found out that we wouldn't be able to go on our annual casino trip. I look forward to it every year as a fun getaway, and last year I even brought home a couple hundred bucks!
When my friend, Tom, suggested Fanduel Casino to make up for the loss of our trip, I wasn't too excited about it. I tried out a casino site online a couple of years ago and all I can remember is a lot of obnoxious flashing graphics while being bombarded with pop-ups and potential viruses.
But Tom ensured that Fanduel Casino isn't anything like those casino sites - it's a much safer and seamless user experience.
Turns out, you can access Fanduel Casino with the Fanduel Sportsbook app. I had used Fanduel Sportsbook for betting and got obsessed with it. I still had the app on my phone so I agreed to try Fanduel Casino, but I doubted it would be anything like the real thing.
When I checked out Fanduel Casino, I was surprised to see the variety of games the app offered. They had Blackjack, American Roulette, Divine Fortune, you name it. Also, the graphics were much smoother and more user-friendly than I thought they would be. I was expecting something more along the lines of an early 2000s flash game.
I decided to try my hand at some Blackjack first. I expected to just be playing bots, but it turns out you're playing against real users of the app. Plus, when playing live Roulette, there's a real person spinning the virtual table.
Things just got interesting!
Even though I've had FanDuel Sportsbook for years, I was still able to take advantage of FanDuel Casino's 24 hour risk-free bet. Basically, I could play any of the casino games I wanted, and FanDuel would refund up to $1000 in site credit for anything I lost. All I had to do was make my first real-money deposit, and on my first day of using the app, I ended up winning $20!
I've been playing Fanduel Casino for a while now and it's an awesome way to pass the time at home. I didn't expect Fanduel Casino to be as advanced or as fun as it is. It's not quite the real deal, but I still appreciate how authentic the experience is. The next time we go to a real-life casino, I'm confident that I'm going to win.
