FanDuel Site Review

If you have any DFS experience, you know that FanDuel is one of the best providers out there. That’s evident by the millions of dollars in prizes that they offer for every sport and it’s truly one of the greatest DFS sites in the industry. There are numerous sports and gluttony of different contests available on FanDuel and you’re sure to find something that suits your game.

Signing Up

Signing up can be done in less than a minute and you don’t even have to make a deposit to create an account. Everything you need to know is right there and it’s as easy as pie.

Home Page

Here’s a screenshot of the home page for FanDuel and it really shows what a beautiful site they’ve created.

As you can see, there’s a lot of different places to navigate to and it caters to whatever your craving may be. While there’s only MLB, PGA and WNBA on this particular day, that’s only a small amount of the sports they offer. In fact, FanDuel regularly has NBA, NFL, NHL, NCAAF, EPL and NASCAR.

Depositing/Withdrawals

You can also see tabs for the lobby (which you’re looking at), upcoming contests, live contests, history, friends and rewards. These tabs make things so much easier on the user and it caters to the most novice of players. There’s also an easy place to see how much money you have and a button right next to it to make a deposit. This is what the deposit page looks like…

As you can see, depositing on FanDuel is an absolute breeze and it can be done in seconds. Whether you want to use a credit card, bank account or PayPal account, you can deposit pretty much any way you please. The withdrawal process is just as simple and you can pull out your money through a check, PayPal or a direct transfer to your bank account.

Contest Types

What also makes FanDuel great is how many different types of contests they offer, in addition to the variety of sports.

FanDuel has tournaments, multipliers, beat the score, head-to-heads, 50/50s and create your own tournaments. That means almost anyone can play for however much money they want. FanDuel even offers free contests for those that want to try the product out and test it. If you’re feeling frisky, you can play contests for up to $50,000.

All the different types of contests allow you to play however you want and the amount of entrants and prize pools is what makes FanDuel so special. There are contests that they offer that can make you a millionaire and there’s not many DFS sites offering prize pools like that.

Building a Lineup

As you can see, I’m already in the process of building a lineup. What’s fun about every DFS site is that each one is different in terms of lineup construction. FanDuel tends to be higher-scoring than most sites and they always have unique lineup construction. There’s a list of players and positions on the left side with their salaries and your lineup on the right. The amount remaining and amount per player at the top right corner is a nice tool that tells you how much salary you have left to build a lineup and it’s really up to you from there. There are also helpful tools like lineup positioning next to the player and even Guru Suggestions to help build an optimal lineup.

Promotions

FanDuel is one of the best promoters out there in the DFS industry and there’s a reason why billions of dollars have run through their site.

The deposit bonus is a stable of pretty much every DFS site but what I love about FanDuel is their FDP system. They give you five FDP points for every dollar you spend and those points can be directly used to enter a contest. It also builds up throughout the month and determines what level user you are. These FDP points can be used to enter any contest you like and it’s essentially free money. Here’s a screenshot of what a user’s rewards look like for this month.

This user is in a free $25,000 tournament for the next month and that’s essentially free money in their pocket!

Summary

The simple fact is, FanDuel runs the game when it comes to DFS. They’ve established themselves as a billion-dollar company and the contests they offer simply can’t be matched by many others.
