If you've ever won the March Madness bracket or the Super Bowl Pool, you know how awesome it feels to win. The adrenaline high, the gloating you get to do for days or even weeks - it's the best part of sports seasons.
With FanDuel's Sportsbook, available in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and West Virginia, you can bet on your favorite team all season long. It's a user-friendly legal app for betting, the best one on the market - you've got questions, as you should, so here are all the questions you have (and how you can get a $500, 100% risk-free bet!) answered before you sign up.
What is Fanduel Sportsbook?
It's an online sports betting center that's easy-to-use for sports betting newbies, enthusiasts, and experts. You can play online or with the FanDuel app on your phone.
What sports can I bet on?
ALL sports - football, basketball, baseball, hockey, MMA, boxing, tennis, golf, soccer, auto racing, and more.
Is there a minimum betting requirement?
It a $10 minimum, but when you sign up, you get a risk-free bet up to $500! Other betting sites like DraftKings offer a 20% bonus up to $500 if you make a deposit - but it's not risk-free.
What they don't tell you is that you'd have to make a $2500 deposit in order to be eligible. Not to mention the fact that you'd have to bet over $12,000 to receive the whole $500- you only get $1 in bonus credit released for every $25 - not such a good deal!
With FanDuel Sportsbook, all you have to do is place a wager up to $500. If you win the risk-free bet, then you get the amount returned and the winning amount as site credit.
So if you win $500 on the $500 bet, you get $1000. It's as good as cash, no strings attached!
What kinds of betting does it have?
NFL* has Straight Wagers, Player Propositions, Game Propositions, Parlays, Teasers, Live Wagers, Half and Quarter Wagers, Round Robins, Futures, and Spread Wagers. If you don't know what any of that means, they have in-depth guides on every type of betting on their website, so you can catch up in no time.
*Don't worry, there's college football, too.
How do I get paid?
You can cash out at any time! Every win, big or small, can be deposited right into your bank account whenever you want.
How do I sign up?
FanDuel Sportsbook needs your name and address, your card information, and your social security number. That way, they know you're over 21 years old, and they can keep your information secure to make sure you get paid. (It also prevents Bill Belichick from creating an account and betting on Tom Brady - no coaches, pros, or refs are allowed to play.)
How far in advance can I place a bet?
You can place a bet when the lines come up, and you can keep betting until the game starts.
There's a Daily Odds Boost with special bets that come with enhanced odds for the better - for one day you can get obsessed with a team you've never watched before, knowing there's an increased chance of winning.
If you eat, sleep, and breathe your favorite team and pick fights over how you know they're going to win, up the ante with FanDuel Sportsbook. Plus, with that $500 risk-free bet, you have literally nothing to lose! Get all your buddies in on it and you could be on your way to some serious gloating.
