FanDuel Sportsbook Review

FanDuel Sportsbook

Disclaimer: FanDuel Sportsbook is not yet live in the state of Michigan.

FanDuel Sportsbook is the daily fantasy sports (DFS) giant’s venture into the emerging US online and mobile sports betting market.

Brand recognition, effective marketing strategies and its existing DFS player base have helped FanDuel position itself as a sports betting market leader in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Indiana.

FanDuel Sportsbook has landed a partner in the Michigan sports betting market. FanDuel has a branded retail sportsbook at MotorCity Casino in Detroit and will enter the mobile sports betting market through that partnership. The FanDuel Sportsbook retail location launched on March 12, 2020.

Michigan’s online and mobile sports betting market is expected to launch by by early 2021, though some insiders have theorized launch could be in late 2020.

In 2018, FanDuel’s US operations were acquired by international online gaming giant Paddy Power Betfair, which now calls itself Flutter Entertainment.

FanDuel Michigan new player bonus

Sign up for a new FanDuel Sportsbook account through our exclusive link, and you’ll be eligible for a risk-free first bet of up to $1,000.

So, you can make your first real-money bet, up to $1,000. If this initial wager loses, FanDuel will issue you a refund in bonus funds so you can use it to try again.

However, if you win, you’ll collect on the bet as usual.

You must wager the bonus funds before you can withdraw them.

Plus, bets made on heavy favorites with odds greater than -200 do not count toward fulfilling this wagering requirement.
