FanDuel App Review
Originally known for their fantasy sports offering, FanDuel entered the growing US market with a strong range of sports betting options. They are currently owned by Paddy Power Betfair and have created a sportsbook app compatible with both iOS and Android-powered devices. At the moment, they are available in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
How to Download the FanDuel Sports App
The download process is identical to the one most other US-based sportsbooks and casinos use. It is pretty straightforward and won’t take more than five to ten minutes. We will break it down for you explaining how to go through it for both iOS and Android devices.

How to download the FanDuel app on Android devices

FanDuel App Look and Feel
The FanDuel app is designed to suit less-experienced bettors as it is very easy to handle featuring numerous shortcuts created to help you find the desired sport or event in the fastest manner. You will first notice three main tabs that highlight the most significant events that are either in play or upcoming. These are:
The main focus is kept on the most popular leagues in the United States. Managing your bets is very simple. To place a pick, you just need to click on the odds for the wanted event and it will appear in the bet-slip. You can easily add more bets or delete a bet through the “trash can” button. The bet-slip also allows you to choose whether to place certain bets in singles, doubles or parlays.
Game/Odds selection vs Desktop
The array of betting options we found through the app is quite fascinating and we have to give the FanDuel app the highest grade on this field. The app is a genuine copycat of the website as everything you can do on the desktop page can also be done through the mobile application.
The number of markets for the most popular US competitions (NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB) is extraordinary. In the sea of possible bets, here is what you can back on matches from these four leagues:
|Betting types available|
|Moneyline||Props||Half Time Bets||Race to X Points|
|Point spread||Parlays||Player Props||First Goalscorer|
|Totals (over/under)||Quarter Bets||Futures|
We also have to mention the in-play betting section. The versatility of betting markets is strong here too, but we did notice they can be somewhat slower in updating the lines and odds for the live-betting events in the sportsbook app.
The FanDuel App features and bet
The FanDuel app left a strong impression on us as we were impressed by most we’ve run into there. Here are some of the most prominent features we’d like to highlight for you:
The sophisticated look – We love the aesthetic layout of the app which allows bettors to find their desired betting options in no time thanks to the simplicity
The range of betting markets – FanDuel are likely among industry leaders in the United States in terms of the array of betting options for the top four leagues. However, we’d advise you to be careful with the exotic markets because that’s where the sportsbooks generally hide their biggest margin
No-risk bet – All new customers can place the first bet without any risk involved as FanDuel will return your money in case of your initial pick letting you down. This is all up to $500 stake.
