The FanDuel Sportsbook is owned by Flutter entertainment, which is really a combination of many gaming brands including Paddy Power and Betfair from previous mergers. They were one of the original online sportsbooks in America after making the quick pivot from a large daily fantasy userbase to the sports betting side of the business as states legalized online gaming.
FanDuel Sportsbook Sign-up Bonus
FanDuel Sportsbook allows new users to make a first bet of $5 and get up to $150 in free bets. If you place your first bet, they will give you a voucher for a free second bet up to $150. You do have to read the fine print though. That second bet is not the same as having a $150 cash. A voucher allows you to keep the winnings of any bet, but you do not get the value of the voucher as well. That is how a voucher differs from real money.
Bets Offered at FanDuel
FanDuel has one of the fullest betting menus of any of the online sportsbooks. You can bet the standard sides, totals, and money lines. They also offer a wide range of exotic betting options such as parlays, teasers, futures and round robins. They have one of the biggest prop betting boards for every sport and you can bet them at various brick and mortar locations as well as on desktop and mobile.

Does FanDuel have a Mobile App?
FanDuel has one of the best mobile apps in the entire online sports betting industry. You can argue who is the best between FanDuel and longtime rival DraftKings, but no one will argue those two are well ahead of the more traditional casino operators in terms of their mobile platform. The user experience, ease of depositing and withdrawals, and the full betting menu have them at or near top of the class.
How to Download on iOS
Just click through here and you will be taking to the sign up page. Once you sign up, the FanDuel Sportsbook app is in the app store. You can access it through any web browser you sign up on, but the ap really is easier to navigate on a mobile device. They also have a desktop platform for computer users who like a bigger screen. Some of the online sportsbooks do not have a desktop platform and are strictly mobile. I use both versions often, but really do like the platforms that offer both over those that are mobile only.
How to Download on Android
Android requires an extra step. You can download the android app right off of the fanduel webpage. You can access that here. Once you sign up you have to download the app and then give it access.
How Do I Deposit at FanDuel Sportsbook?
FanDuel offers more deposit options than any other online provider. You can go direct from a bank account, use a debit or credit card, fund through PayPal, wire transfers, PLAY+ Prepaid account on google, PAYNEARME cash cards from your local convenience stores, FanDuel Gift Cards, and even live deposits into your mobile account from their brick and mortar locations. If you want to place a bet, there’s a good chance Fanduel has a way for you to fund your account and do it.
