FanDuel is the largest daily fantasy sports (“DFS” for short) sites in the world. They were one of the pioneers in the industry, first coming onto the scene in 2009, before becoming the global giant you see before you today. You have undoubtedly seen their aggressive marketing campaigns all over ESPN, Fox Sports and numerous other cable network outlets, which have amounted in tens of millions alone in ad spends – especially around NFL season.
As of right now, they are still the “gold standard” of DFS sites as it stands right now. And while there have been a few courtroom battles as of late regarding the legality of daily fantasy games, FanDuel has continued to be a driving force behind the lobbying efforts for DFS games to be 100% allowed in all state jurisdictions. As it stands, they are legal in most of the United States and is it unknown whether they will begin taking some of their operation overseas.
FanDuel paid out over a billion dollars in prizes in 2015, a number that is certainly showing no signs of slowing down going forward into the future. With a loyal following of over 600,000 users and a variety of different game types they offer to their players, it’s hard to see FanDuel failing at what they do best – DAILY FANTASY SPORTS. We’ll take a look at all the positives – and even negatives – of the site in this review. So read on for more information.
