While 2021 was an exciting year for FanDuel and its users, 2022 promises to be even more thrilling. FanDuel are currently offering first-time bettors a risk-free bet up to $1,000!
When it comes to brand recognition, it doesn’t get much bigger than Fan Duel. Their sleek and modern app/site design makes betting on your favorite teams a breeze and is of course available in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York.
To claim your offer, you just need to follow three steps:
- Click the link here to create an account and fill in all the required information, such as your name, address, and age. (You must be 21+ years of age)
- Deposit up to $1,000 and place a bet on the event of your choosing.
- If the bet loses, FanDuel will refund you your initial stake in site credits.
So if you were to place a $50 bet on the Eagles to beat the Bucs in the playoffs, you’d have received a $50 refund. If you bet on the Bucs to win, you’d have simply won the bet and received the profits.
The great thing about FanDuel is versatility. There are so many ways to bet and it’s always presented in a really enticing fashion through their simplistic app. FanDuel presents users with the ability to place bets on the following kinds of markets:
- money line
They’ve also added the ability to stream certain sports, so you can watch the game while you’re betting. If you don’t have access to the game or it’s on a blackout, don’t worry! FanDuel in certain instances will allow you to stream the game alongside your bet, providing you place a wager. Considering the company is owned by BetFair, who are a European sports-betting juggernaut and offer similar services, this shouldn’t come as a surprise and there should be plenty more to come in this area.
FanDuel’s app is one of the most aesthetically pleasing on the market. It’s clear, concise, and everything you could ever possibly need is only ever a few taps away. Bettors will regularly choose apps/sportsbooks they enjoy using, regardless of if the prices/features aren’t as appealing, purely because if you’re spending a lot of time in the app, you want it to be an enjoyable experience without any bugs, having to refresh/log out during games, and spend ages trying to find a certain market.
FanDuel ticks every box here. It’s a beautifully designed app and offers competitive pricing with plenty of promotions to keep users coming back and reward their custom.
- Online banking
- Wire Transfer
- Cash at counter
- gift/pre-paid cards
- Apple Pay
There are a wide variety of deposit methods which makes it very easy for you to make an account and get started with your risk-free bet within minutes. This is always a good thing as there’s nothing worse than having to search high and low for a bank card when making an online transaction. Each deposit method requires a $10 minimum deposit.
Unfortunately, you’re unable to transfer funds from your sportsbook wallet to the FanDuel DFS wallet if you play their daily fantasy games. This is a minor inconvenience, but one that players already familiar with the brand should be aware of.

Talking of “cash at counter”, you can visit any of FanDuel’s physical casino’s and top up your account there, while obviously enjoying a totally different gameday experience.

As always, never bet more than you can afford to lose. FanDuel allows its users to set deposit limits over varying periods (from daily to monthly) in order to protect themselves. Bettors can also suspend themselves in ’cool-down’ periods if they feel they need a break, or self-exclude altogether. These features are easy to access which is great as they can often be sneakily hidden behind several different menus, detracting bettors from betting responsibly. This isn’t the case here.
With an exciting sign-up offer to take advantage of and a gorgeous app that encourages you to explore all this diverse sportsbook has to offer, it’s no surprise that FanDuel has cemented itself at the top of the pecking order when it comes to sports betting.
