NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 7, 2018--Today, FanDuel Group, a leading online sports and entertainment company, announced the launch of the FanDuel Sportsbook app. With a multitude of betting and payment options available across sports, FanDuel built an online sports betting experience that is simple, secure, and more convenient than ever. Sports fans in New Jersey can now place wagers across football, basketball, baseball, golf, soccer, and tennis in just a few short clicks. The FanDuel Sportsbook app will continue to roll out in other states pending regulation.

“FanDuel is creating a new genre of entertainment, and sports betting is another way we can bring fans closer and more engaged to the games and teams they follow,” said Matt King, CEO of FanDuel Group. “We’re leveraging our experiences building the Sportsbook at the Meadowlands and the global footprint of Paddy Power Betfair to build an online sports betting experience that fans want, love, and can rely on.”

The FanDuel Sportsbook app will offer a variety of options including point spreads, moneylines, over/unders, parlays, teasers, prop bets, round robins and an extensive list of live in-game wagers that will make every sporting event even more exciting. For the first time, bettors seeking quick calculations on possible winnings can utilize the new Betting Slip feature that automatically displays potential payouts before the wager is placed.

The FanDuel Sportsbook app offers a variety of key features, including:

A range of payment options: With a number of deposit and payment options available, including debit or credit card, PayPal, ACH (eCheck), online bank transfer, and more, the FanDuel Sportsbook app makes it easier than ever to deposit money into your account to place a bet. The FanDuel Sportsbook also allows users to withdraw winnings at any time without leaving the house or waiting for a check in the mail. Live betting: In the same way that fantasy sports enhanced sports viewership and changed the way fans interact with sports on TV, in-game wagering on the FanDuel Sportsbook app allows you to bet on games literally while they’re being played. Users will be watching every serve, throw, and at-bat with renewed excitement. FanDuel’s trusted brand: Associating with a reliable, familiar, and trusted brand, the FanDuel Sportsbook offers safe and secure banking, as well as account protections and a global reputation for responsible wagering. The FanDuel Sportsbook also offers 24/7 customer service featuring a live call-in center and a dedicated team to assist via web and social media.

For new users who sign up for the FanDuel Sportsbook and deposit at launch, FanDuel will double their first deposit of up to $100.* For sports fans new to sports betting or for those who want to brush up on knowledge, FanDuel has created a Sports Betting Training Camp: https://www.fanduel.com/sports-betting-guide
