Visit: FanDuel Sportsbook
One of the best-known names in daily fantasy sports is joining the sports betting fray.
FanDuel’s first endeavor as a sports gambling company was in New Jersey, followed by launch in West Virginia. Thanks to a partnership with Boyd Gaming, the newly formed FanDuel Group has secured market access into more than a dozen other states, too.
Read on for more information about the online/mobile FanDuel Sportsbook platform in NJ.
With the flurry of new physical and online sportsbooks opening their doors to NJ players, there is no better time to be a sports gambler in the Garden State. It’s a gamer’s market, which means that each of these new ventures is jockeying for your attention with new signup bonuses and incentives.
When you sign up and deposit with our exclusive link, you will receive a 100 percent deposit match up to $100.
You do not need a fanduel sportsbook promo code, just to follow our links. You must wager the total amount of your deposit and the amount of your bonus before you can withdraw any winnings. You also need to make the initial deposit within seven days of creating your new account.
Any bet placed on a favorite with odds greater than -200 does not count toward playthrough requirements.
One final note about new player incentives: referring a friend who doesn’t currently have an account with FanDuel nets both the new player and the current player who recommended them a 50-50 split of $20 in bonus money.
The fantasy sports juggernaut FanDuel, best known for being a leader in the $3.2 billion annual daily fantasy industry, is now putting its money and reputation behind online sports betting.
In July, the company opened a brick-and-mortar sportsbook at the Meadowlands racetrack. Now, with new owners Paddy Power Betfair and FanDuel’s years of experience and success with online sports gaming in Europe, the brand has gone fully online in the state of New Jersey.
Brick-and-mortar sports betting in West Virginia went live in September, and the FanDuel Sportsbook at The Greenbrier was among the first to open its doors. Online/mobile wagering has not yet begun in the state, but it’s on the way shortly.
Registration for a new online sportsbook account with FanDuel is quick and straightforward.
Users need to enter their name, date of birth, email address, phone number, physical address, and social security number. Players must also create a username and password and answer two additional security questions.
Note that your username and security questions cannot be changed once submitted, so make sure you choose wisely.
In the unlikely event that your account flags a security review, you will be required to submit photo identification. The company is also likely to ask for proof of your address as well as proof of ownership of any credit cards and bank accounts affiliated with your FanDuel account. This is a secondary security check that only takes place if an account appears compromised – photo ID is not required upon signup.
Anyone 21 years or older is eligible to create a FanDuel account.
New Jersey state law prevents athletes, coaches, trainers, and other sports officials from placing bets on games and sports in which they might be able to influence the outcome.
Any individual, no matter their location, whose occupation is not mentioned in this short exclusion list may register for an account.
A player must be located within the state borders of New Jersey to place wagers and participate in other gaming, although they don’t need to be a resident of the state. Anyone visiting the Garden State can place a wager as long as the location services on their device are enabled so that their physical presence inside the state can be verified electronically.
When you register for a new FanDuel sportsbook account, you are immediately enrolled in the FanDuel Players Club. There is no card or number to keep track of this loyalty program – it all comes as a benefit automatically attached to your username.
Like so many of the other rewards clubs out there, the Players Club is a points-based program with different levels that can be achieved based on how often and how much you wager. Your points roll over each month to determine your level – what you accumulated last month dictates your tier this month.
The higher the level, the better the rewards – the highest levels come with as many as five free monthly plays. Points don’t need to be used by any specific date – as long as your account does not remain inactive for one year, the points never expire, and staying active only requires you to earn a single reward point over the 12-month period.
FanDuel commonly offers bet boosters — increased odds on certain teams to win — or other promotions.
For instance, it recently let players know that any bet for a recent NFL weekend on one of the regional teams would be refunded if the teams (the Eagles, Giants and Jets) lost. That mean the bet was a freeroll for anyone who placed a wager on any of those teams.
Stay tuned for more promotions.
If you can bet it, you can find it at FanDuel. The sportsbook comes fully equipped to handle straight bets, propositions, parlays, teasers, and future bets on almost every major (and not-so-major) sporting event around the world. Additionally, because of its rising popularity among gamblers, live In-Play wagering is also offered.
For those new to In-Play wagering, the term refers to action that is played after an event has started and as the odds and point spread shift depending on the direction of the game.
If other sportsbook terms – like point spreads and parlays – are also new to you, FanDuel’s website features a page titled “Sports Betting Training Camp” where sports betting novices can find lessons in how all of the different bets work as well as detailed explanations of point spreads and money lines.
FanDuel offers mobile gaming for both iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android, and the experience on the app feels just like the experience on the desktop site.
Both the desktop site and the mobile app feature a series of shortcuts that take you directly to your sport of choice. There are also tabs that direct to all the live events where you can place In-Play wagers. Additionally, the sportsbook contains a tab titled “Popular” if you are looking for that day’s marquee matchups, and an “Upcoming” tab takes you to a list of future events
If you prefer to keep your action exclusively on your mobile device, you can do so with no issues. Registration through the app is just as easy as it is on the desktop site.
FanDuel’s ease of operation extends to the way it handles your deposits and withdrawals.
You can deposit money into your account by direct bank transfer, E-check, FanDuel Prepaid Card, a personal or cashier’s check, PayPal and even cash via PayNearMe machines available at 7-Elevens and CVS pharmacies throughout the state.
Credit cards are also accepted, but FanDuel warns its patrons about the possibility that their credit card company will treat a deposit with an online gaming company as a cash advance, attaching extra fees as a result.
A player who used PayPal to fund their account can also use PayPal to make a withdrawal. Bettors can also withdraw via E-checks or have FanDuel send them a physical check by mail. This final option can take between five and seven business days to process.
