ILLINOIS, listen up, we've got good news for you.

Registering for Sportsbook has been extended by a month, and you now have until NOVEMBER 20TH to sign up. The original deadline was slated to be October 20th, but the betting gods have granted us this extension, and we're here to tell you how you can make the most of it.

Typically, if you want to start placing bets for Sportsbook, you need to complete your registration in-person at a casino.

Obviously, the last 6 months have made that a little tricky, so you've been able to register and start playing online. On November 20th, you're going to need to drag yourself into a casino if you ever want to start. Sounds like a lot of effort, right?

So save yourself the time, gas money, and headache by heading over to FanDuel Sportsbook and signing up before November 20th!

All you need to do is fill out the registration paperwork online with your name, age, social security number, and other relevant info, and then you're good to go. You can begin betting on this wild NFL season, or see what's available in CFB, MLB, or even tennis or rugby.

They have every sport you could think of and an incredible new user offer: your first bet is risk-free up to $1000. That means if you lose any of your first bet up to that amount, you'll get it alllll back, for your next bet.

FanDuel offers an in-depth betting guide with an extensive glossary of terms (grand salami, anyone?) along with daily boosted odds, so there's always something going on.

So head on over to the FanDuel website or app (Android users - website first!) and complete your registration to play Sportsbook today.

Each Friday, FindBet will preview the week's DFS slate, highlighting players that are priced well on FanDuel, as well as some contrarian plays that can push your team to the top of the leader board.

Most NFL FanDuel games have you putting a team together with players from a certain slate of games. It could be just Sunday 1:00 PM games or it could be every game that is slated for the week. Once the last game that has eligible players is over, the final payouts are made according to how many fantasy points each team scored. Each player is worth a certain dollar amount, and you have a cap of $60,000 to build your team with. You have to have 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 FLEX (RB, WR, or TE) and 1 DEF.

The general scoring rules include (6) points for each rushing and receiving touchdown, (4) points for each passing touchdown, (0.1) points for each rushing and receiving yard gained, (0.04) points for each passing yard, and also (0.5) points for each reception. There are other scoring opportunities for defenses. You can see the entire breakdown on FanDuel. Let's dive into players we like and players we advise to avoid in Week 7.

I started to think that we were never going to watch football again but it's back and better than ever. This has to be the best season yet! The craziest thing though, I started playing Fantasy Football.

When I first started playing, I never imagined I'd get hooked. My friends and I play FanDuel's Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) because they do daily sports. No more picking your roster in late summer and being stuck with them for the entire season.

FanDuel's so much better for how easy it is to play and how accessible it is to get really great picks, along with rookies. It's great! ! We ended up putting our football knowledge to use and making some serious coin.

I figured the FanDuel app would just sit on my phone, but I checked out their other offerings and found them to be really great.

Here's why my friends and I can't stop using FanDuel DFS:

You get to pick an entirely new lineup every week. Each individual player has a salary value, and the total value of your team has to be less than your weekly cap

It's easy to sign up. It can be done online or through their app, which is free to download and available for iOS and Android

FanDuel DFS has great offers for new users! They'll match 20% of your first deposit up to $500!

Cashing out your winnings is easy and can be done at any time no matter what the amount- all you have to do is link your bank account or debit card.

FanDuel Fantasy has leagues for NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, soccer, golf, so it covers all bases. And you can place bets right up until the game starts.

You'll get real familiar real fast with the players to watch and players that hang out at the bottom of the barrel. I remember when I signed up, I almost backed out when I saw I had to put in my social security number, but that's just so they can verify you're not a player or coach.

I really didn't think I could care about other sports, but FanDuel DFS makes it exciting and super easy to care, especially when money's involved.
