Fan Duel – Welcome Offer
New registrations to Fan Duel each can join the NFL Welcome Freeplay tournament. Just choose your team and get your entry in by 1pm every Sunday. This offer is going to run for new players throughout 2017, right up until 31st December, and a new freeroll starts each week.
Fan Duel Sports
The great thing about FanDuel is the huge range of sports on offer, and it even includes European sports. The classic all American ones are in here – including NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, EPL (English Premier Legaue), Champions League (Football), PGA (Golf) and WNBA.
In DFS the tournaments are like poker ones, with the prize pool taken from the buy-ins. There are beginners tourneys where half the entries take home a prize, as well as much bigger tourneys with huge entries and massive prize payouts for the guys who finish at the top.
Promotions and Rewards
So, as we’ve already mentioned, new players are entitled to a free entry to a weekly NFL tournament for beginners. After that there are more rewards to be had. Once you make your first deposit you’ll also be eligible for a voucher for the NFL Sunday Million contest and 2 vouchers to the NBA shot.
After that there are lots of featured tournaments and promotions, including: NBA Hot Hand Series – with 6 entries over 5 weeks; Quest for the Holy Grail, Number Fire Showdown and Duel for a Difference.
There are also players clubs and VIP tourneys for the really big spenders, and a Refer a Friends scheme to if you bring a mate to play at FanDuel too.
As we mentioned earlier, you don’t even have to deposit to get started at FanDuel – you can register today and get a free entry into the weekly NFL tournament.
However, to get into the really good stuff you’ll need to deposit. The options are standard and you can use credit of debit cards – Visa and Mastercard. Helpfully there is also a Paypal option. The minimum deposit here is $10, and you deposit up to a maximum of $10,000 if you want.
Should you get lucky (or by skill!) and win a tournament and take a cash prize, withdrawing is easy too. You can transfer money back out onto the card you used or into your Paypal account.
As you would expect from a well-funded and slick operation like FanDuel the website is well built and easy to find you way around. The registration process is really quick so you can be playing your first freeroll in minutes.
There are a massive range of sports on offer, but that doesn’t make it complicated to find what you’re looking for as everything is laid out well in the menu system.
FanDuel is also available on tablet and mobile so you can track your live tournament, or enter new ones, anywhere and at any time.
FanDuel provide a comprehensive customer support service with Live Chat, Email and Telephone alongside a good set of FAQS for quick access to common answers to common questions.
Licensing, Security and Trust
FanDuel are not currently offering their service to UK customers. This was announced in July 2017, shortly before the start of the English Premier League Season. This is seen as a blow for the expansion of DFS beyond North America, but FanDuel promise to be back in the UK soon.
