FanDuel Sportsbook Overview
FanDuel Sportsbook nailed the betting game with their informative website and easy-to-use website. They have betting for every sport you can think of - football, soccer, NBA, MLB, golf and tons more!
What we love about FanDuel Sportsbook is that their offer for new users is really no strings attached. All you have to do is place a wager up to $1,000, and they'll match the bet-- no strings attached. If you win, then you get the amount returned to you, and the winning amount as site credit. No hidden criteria; it's really that easy.
Signing up for a FanDuel Sportsbook account couldn't be easier, and can be done online or on the FanDuel Sportsbook app. They'll ask you for your SSN, but don't worry, this is just to make sure coaches and players aren't making any bets.
The app runs smoothly, and as we said, if you're new to sports betting, FanDuel Sportsbook makes getting up to speed a total breeze. Keep an eye out for special enhanced odds, too. These guys come up with some unmissable odds you're gonna wanna take advantage of.
DraftKings also has a convenient app, and offers a huge variety of sports and betting types. But, what really made us not even want to place a bet is how misleading their "$1,000 risk-free bet" is.
First of all, that's not as good as FanDuel's offer, and secondly, you only get 20% of that bonus upfront and need to bet $25 to get each remaining $1 in bonus credit. That wasn't made very clear and kind of put a dampener on our whole experience.
DraftKings also doesn't have as many tutorials and tips, which can alienate new users.
Sports betting has become a huge part of the fun of watching sports and following your favorite players and teams. But if you're trying to choose what platform is best, our pick is FanDuel Sportsbook.
The app is so straightforward, you can cash out your winnings at any time (no matter how big or small) and most importantly, FanDuel Sportsbook's risk-free bet is exactly that: risk-free.

It was announced this week that Governor Andrew Cuomo approved legislation that will allow for online sports betting in the State of New York — starting just in time for the Super Bowl in 2022.
Cuomo signed the bill as part of the 2022 New York State fiscal plan, and New York State Senator Joseph Abbaddo Jr. believes that the first online bets to be placed will be on February 13, 2022, which is the same day as the Super Bowl. New York will become the fifteenth state to allow for some form of online gambling to take place.
Following the 2018 decision made by the Supreme Court to repeal the nationwide ban on sports betting, New York quickly saw casinos pop up across the state throughout 2019. These casinos were safe havens for sports bettors that had been forced to place bets illegally.
With this new legislation, all New York residents will have the ability to place legitimate bets through whichever platform providers win bids with New York State.
Gov. Cuomo ends briefing by predicting "Bills win, bet on it." The governor proposed legislation to legalize online… https://t.co/0ysl67un7A— News 8 WROC (@News 8 WROC) 1610139272.0
New York officials will begin accepting bids from platform providers such as FanDuel by no later than July 1 of this year. New York will be allowed to accept bids from two platform providers to operate in the state. Providers that win bids will pay a one-time fee of $25 million for the right to facilitate sports betting in the state and must also be physically housed in a New York casino.
There will be a recurring $5 million fee associated with operating their mobile betting servers at each casino. A maximum tax rate of 13% has been set for the providers, which would yield a massive boost to the state's tax revenue.
In 2020, online sports betting generated over $200 million in tax revenue for states that allow it. It's estimated that over $20 billion was spent on betting in the U.S. last year, and that's just accounting for legal bets placed.
Governor Cuomo leans toward the New York State Lottery running the online sports betting operation, as it's done in many other states where online gambling is legal; however, many lawmakers opposed this structure and favor allowing private entities to be making bids. Opponents to the state running the online sportsbook argue that it would allow for the state to essentially have a monopoly over the industry and discourage open competition from entering the arena.
Not everyone is pleased with this news, however, as New Jersey is set to take a big hit once online gambling is legal in New York. Currently, many New Yorkers place bets in their neighboring state, as it's been a legal activity there since 2012. Since that time, New Jersey has grown to become the largest sports betting market in America, due in part to the overflow of New Yorkers placing bets just by crossing the Hudson River.

As more professional sports embrace gambling and betting, it's to be expected that more states will join New York by legalizing online sports books. As states are finalizing budgets for 2022, many will be faced with how to make up for unexpected losses as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Legalization of cannabis and sports betting have long been controversial topics of debate, but as unemployment and social services have drained a lot of states' resources over the past 15 month they both may be states' saving graces.
I used to really enjoy sports betting. The feeling of not only watching your favorite team go head-to-head with a rival but knowing that there is something personally on the line is unbeatable. I want my team to win regardless, but it'd be nice if I could make some dough off of it in the process.
That's why I was a regular aficionado of online sportsbooks (emphasis on the was). While I loved the excitement of gambling, the payoff was rarely there. It seemed like no matter what I did, I couldn't really get the hang of it. Whether I wasn't shopping the right betting lines or forgetting about a bankroll management plan, I usually ended up getting too confused and throwing in the towel.
Lately, I've been feeling the betting bug and it ain't passing. I absolutely love watching sports (and the excitement of gambling) so sports betting should be a no-brainer. The issue came down to how trying to find the right platform that's easy to use.
My best friend Mikey is probably FanDuel Sportsbook's number 1 user. All he does is rave about it and tell everyone how much money he's making off of his betting lines. He told me that FanDuel's sportsbook interface and betting structure makes it so much easier to bet compared to a traditional sportsbook. Mikey is a bit of an airhead, but when it comes to sports and betting, I trust him.
First off, FanDuel Sportsbook lets you bet on nearly every major sport. Moreover, the betting options within each sport are comprehensive. For example, in the NFL, you have individual game bets, futures, player futures, playoff bets, season props, and even wanglers on how many fantasy points a player is going to score. They literally cover everything to make sure that you can bet on exactly what you're looking for.
Another fantastic feature is their user interface. This was important to me considering the other online sportsbooks I used looked like they were designed in the early 2000s. The FanDuel Sportsbook interface is incredible. Finding the bets you want is quick and easy, requiring no training or learning curve. Turning your bets into parlays, teasers or round robins is also extremely easy. In short, FanDuel Sportsbook gives you flexibility without any of the headaches.
Signing up for an account is easy, and can be done on their website or the app, that's available for iOS and Android. Once you give them some basic info, like your name and email address, you're good to go. They also have an awesome offer for new users- up to $1000 risk-free bet! If you deposit $1000 and lose it, FanDuel Sportsbook will give you $1000 good as cash to spend on their site to try your luck again.
Let's be honest, the most important feature of an online sportsbook is how they handle your money, and FanDuel Sportsbook is no exception. In fact, my favorite part about FanDuel Sportsbook was how easy it was to deposit funds and cash out. I remember all of the hurdles I had to jump through when using a traditional bookie between linking my bank account, making bets, and cashing out. Now, all it takes is a simple button press and I'm good to go!
FanDuel Sportsbook is always running some awesome promotion or offer, so it's always a good time to join if you're thinking about trying it out. With risk-free bets and increased odds, FanDuel Sportsbook is my premier location for all online sports betting and I'm never looking back.
