Updated FanDuel Sportsbook review January 2019

FanDuel Sportsbook has all the bells and whistles for expert sports bettors and is extremely easy to use for novice bettors as well. The online book launched in September in New Jersey, right before the start of the 2018 NFL season and the company has seen monster results.

FanDuel raked in $4.4 million in November alone in online bets. It’s physical site at the Meadowlands brought in $2.6 million, which made it the top retail sportsbook in the state – beating out William Hill (Monmouth Park), SugarHouse (Monmouth Park) and DraftKings (Resorts).

“It’s been crazy on football Saturdays and Sundays,” FanDuel COO Kip Levin told MetroBet of the retail sportsbook at MetLife Stadium. “We didn’t know what to expect when we opened it. But even in late September before the baseball playoffs started I was in there on a Tuesday night and the place was packed. You can see that there was really a pent-up demand for this type of entertainment. We’ve been really excited by the customer response.”

Paypal is your best option with FanDuel sportsbook, though if you do go the check in mail route (even if you’re out of state) that’s not the worst option either. I withdrew my money from FanDuel on a Tuesday and had a check in my mailbox on Saturday morning.



FanDuel is right there with DraftKings for being the gold standard in the up-and-coming legal online sportsbook industry in the United States. It garners a 4.5 star rating here from MetroBet.
