FanDuel have launched its Sportsbook product into the fast growing the New Jersey market. Much like the other Daily Fantasy Sports giant, DraftKings, FanDuel launched quickly once the regulations cleared in New Jersey and with a very comprehensive offering. 


FanDuel have very wisely entered into a joint venture with Paddy Power Betfair, one of the biggest and most technologically advanced online bookmakers in the world. The influence of this partnership is apparent as soon as logged in. FanDuel is the best looking and easiest to platform of any Sportsbook to launch in the New Jersey market to date. Whether on mobile or accessing via the web browser on desktop, the navigation is slick, intuitive and fast. Existing FanDuel DFS players will be pleased to know that it has carried some navigation, look and feel over from its DFS user interface.


FanDuel Sportsbook, at this stage, is focusing on the major US Sports as well as a few others like Golf, Soccer, Tennis and MMA. It’s a comprehensive offering, without being the biggest in market. 


Watch as FanDuel’s offering evolves and its business matures. It is an aggressive business and can offer unbelievable promotions, which is a trademark of PaddyPower owned Sportsbooks around the world. We are expecting to see “Early Payouts” to bettors on outcomes that seem far too early to be paid out and “Money Back” to bettors FanDuel determine have been hard done by with a sports result. It’s a trademark of its business model and is one that delivers value back to its customers. 


FanDuel Sportsbook is a fantastic product that positions itself as one of the leaders in the New Jersey and US Sportsbook market. We think the offering will only improve in time with its significant financial backing and outspoken enthusiasm for the business opportunities it sees in this space in the US. 


What we like: Clean and clear user design, integration with Daily Fantasy Sports, Live betting, cash out


Room for improvement: Not as many markets and bet types as some competitors

WHERE CAN YOU REGISTER AND PLACE BETS WITH FANDUEL SPORTSBOOK?


Bets can only be placed in New Jersey. Don’t bother with a VPN as the technology has advanced and now uses a variety of other methods beyond just VPN for geographic detection. Also, if you’re a resident of New Jersey but are physically located outside the state you won’t be able to place your bet. However, if you are a resident of another state but are visiting New Jersey, you will be able to register and place bets. 


Users can register for FanDuel outside of New Jersey but will not be able to place bets. If you know you are heading to New Jersey soon, you can sign-up before you arrive.


HOW DO I SET UP LOCATION DETECTION TO SHOW I’M IN NEW JERSEY?


If you are using a mobile or tablet device, they have built in WiFi capabilities that automatically allow FanDuel to validate your location. 


If you are accessing via a Web Browser, you must have a Location Detection Plugin to place a bet. A location detection plugin is a piece of software downloaded within your browser which allows FanDuel to pinpoint your location using your wireless internet connection.


Find here an example of a location detection plugin for Windows: https://ums.geocomply.com/installer/url?id=LW2BYMiQ3R&os=win&version=3.0.4.3

If you believe you have correctly installed the geolocation browser plugin and would like to confirm:

• PC: Open Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features. The Player Location Check plugin should be listed there.

• Mac: Open system preferences > look for Player Location Check icon in bottom row of System Preferences window (below Date & Time, Time Machine, etc.). If it is installed, it will appear here. 

If the website still cannot detect the plugin, consider uninstalling and reinstalling.
