FanDuel has set up its online sportsbook to appeal to veteran punters, but the site can also be intimidation-free for novice bettors. It explains:

    • Straight Bets

    • Round Robins

    • Points Spreads

FanDuel also offers a wide range of in-game betting options

.
In-game betting describes bets made after a game has started. It is also called live betting or in-play betting. In-game betting allows you to wager on which team will win even after a game has started, or you can bet on other events that might happen during the game.

In-game betting has become the most popular form of sports betting and operators are continually adding new options. Typical bets would be on the score at the end of the next quarter, or on which player will score next, or even whether the game will go into extra time.

FanDuel Software


FanDuel software is excellent, with desktop, iOS and Android apps available. The software has a different look and feel to the other NJ apps because it was written specifically for the New Jersey launch.

Mobile pages closely replicate those on the desktop version of the software, so you don’t have to learn new ways of placing your bets, and everything is where you expect it to be.
The homepage has shortcuts to take you directly to the sport of your choice, e.g. NBA, NFL, MLB and so on.

The software categorizes games into “Popular, Live, and Upcoming,” to help you get to the matches you want as quickly as possible.

Some sites only allow sign-ups through the desktop app, but FanDuel’s mobile sportsbook permits direct sign-ups through the app.

FanDuel VIP Scheme


When you start your FanDuel account, you are immediately enrolled in the FanDuel Players Club which offers a range of VIP rewards.

The program is based on accumulating points which determine your VIP tier. Rewards and bonuses increase as you move up the tiers. At the higher levels, players can win up to five free bets a month.
To keep your points balance current, you only need to make one bet every 12 months. Player Club points then automatically rollover for another 12 months. This is a benefit for casual bettors who may only bet at the biggest events of the year, like the Super Bowl.
