- Sports betting is legal in so many states now, making apps and websites the best way to place your bets
- There are tons of different ways to bet, but DraftKings and FanDuel are two of the top sportsbooks
- Read below to see why they’re both winners — and why our editors who started with DraftKings either switched to FanDuel or downloaded it, too
There’s nothing like a good wager to spice up a sports game. Especially if your favorite team is the underdog and you’re all in to rally for, it can be a real rush.
Now that sports betting is legal in more states than only a couple years ago, there’s been an influx of ads with cool offers and celebrity endorsements telling you where to place your bets.
A bunch of our editors took advantage of a number of sportsbooks’ new-user offers, but two standouts are DraftKings and FanDuel.
The offers are awesome. But we found that everyone who initially signed up for DraftKings also ended up downloading FanDuel. However, most people who started with FanDuel didn’t necessarily get DraftKings.
Here’s everything you need to know about the new world of sports betting and how FanDuel Sportsbook does it best:
Bet Anywhere, Any Time
Break out your phone at the game itself or halfway through a skydive. FanDuel Sportsbook is available on your computer, phone, and other smart devices, 24/7 with all the sports and all kinds of bets.
Unlike some competitors, it’s got an easy-to-use interface and handily outlines current offers and all your current bets. Placing bets on your bathroom breaks has never been so simple.
They’ve also got better odds than DraftKings and more live betting features, so keeping your eye on the game has never been so high stakes.
Easy Sign Up
✅Social Security Number
Done. It’s really that easy. Safe, secure, and it only takes a few minutes.
Editors’ Note:The SS# keeps players and coaches out of the betting realm.
When you’re ready to cash out, you can do so at any time — no minimum required.
New User Offer
The reason we signed up? New FanDuel users get the No-Sweat First Bet Offer! This means get up to $1,000 in free bets if you do not win your first bet. Plus, they reward you for getting your friends in on the action — rope in a friend and you both get $50 in Free Bets from FanDuel!
With DraftKings, you can get a 20% deposit match up to $1,000 with a minimum of $5.
Bonus: FanDuel tends to be quicker to pay out than DraftKings. Withdrawals made via Play+, PayPal or Venmo take a maximum of 48 hours, but are often a lot quicker.
The online sports betting landscape is always changing, but right now, we’re lovin’ everything FanDuel Sportsbook has to offer.
Good luck this Fall Sports Season, everybody. And enjoy your first-time offer with FanDuel!
