FanDuel Sportsbook WV Mobile Sports Betting Coming Soon!
Launched on September 1, 2018 FanDuel Sportsbook WV is taking the market by storm!
West Virginia FanDuel Sportsbook launched at The Greenbrier Resort and Casino, just in time for the second week of the NFL. This was the second FanDuel Sportsbook, as well as being the second legal sportsbook in the state of West Virginia.
The FanDuel Sportsbook app is due to be released in West Virginia by the end of 2018 after hitting the state's regulation requirements to qualify after a reserve period.
The Casino Club, home to the new FanDuel Sportsbook at The Greenbrier Resort and Casino, is an exclusive private casino, and one has to either be a guest or a member to play at this prestigious location. Described as “posh and high-end”, the sportsbook features 21 screens in a private lounge setting with 4 teller windows. After 7pm male guests are required to wear jackets and ladies are requested to wear dresses.
FanDuel Sportsbook NJ was the company’s first sportsbook to go live, doing so at Meadowlands Racetrack.
FanDuel Sportsbook offers a bonus match of 100% up to a maximum of $100 dollars on signup for new members. Simply deposit a minimum of $10 no less than seven days after registering an account with them.
It’s important to note that among other terms and conditions, the FanDuel bonus terms require you to wager the full amount of your deposit plus the matched amount before withdrawing your winnings. So for example, if you wager $100 and it’s matched by $100, you need to wager $200 in bets before being permitted to withdraw the associated winnings.
FanDuel promotions should be updated weekly, but we can definitely look forward to the following forms of promotions from them:
FanDuel was bought by Paddy Power Betfair earlier this year, and then followed by the partnership of IGT and Boyd Gaming to help run its sports betting platform.
Available for Apple iOS and Google Android, the aesthetic of the platform development has put clean modern and functional design first. This means that it’s easy to find your information like prices, moneylines, totals and gamelines without navigating about unnecessarily. A winner!
The only criticism is that the buttons are perhaps a little too responsive which can cause unintended entries.
If you do happen to navigate around the FanDuel Sportsbook app and get lost, there is an A-Z section on the bottom to help redirect you with ease, which we thought was a nice and thoughtful element to their design.
Generally, we found it to be a great little app that functions smoothly and predictably.
This may be the preference for some over the app, but not because of any deficit - one can simply see more due to a larger screen format, which makes it a little easier to process all the information as you play.
There have been complaints about the functionality of the Betting History tab; so watch out for this as serious bettors are sure to want to review their performance.
The web interface is virtually identical to the app in every other way and functions just as well, so no problems here.
FanDuel and Valley Forge Casino have concluded a partnership deal which will see the launch of a Pennsylvania FanDuel Sportsbook shortly.
Boyd Gaming Corporation owns Valley Forge, and their CEO Keith Smith, expressed his pleasure at having concluded the deal, saying the the property would benefit as it “will be positioned to build market-leading sports-betting and online gaming operations” for the future.
FanDuel, previously only known as a daily fantasy sports company, was purchased by Paddy Power Betfair earlier this year, giving them the muscle to expand and diversify their operation.
Just a short time later, FanDuel entered a deal with Boyd Gaming, giving them access to all states where Boyd hold the necessary gaming licenses.
FanDuel Sportsbook allows players to bet on the following sports:
The sports betting options offered are diverse and include:
Live streaming is not yet an active feature of in-game betting, but there is a live scoring display; game stats and possession information on the platform at present. FanDuel in-play betting offers early cash-out options for those wanting to close their bets sooner, which can be very useful if one needs to limit losses.
FanDuel Sportsbook does not currently have a VIP program. FanDuel Daily Fantasy Sports does have an extensive VIP program, so it is possible we see something soon for sports betting players.
FanDuel supports all standard deposit and withdrawal methods, including a FanDuel prepaid card.
Sign up for a prepaid card via the Betfair website using your MasterCard, Visa or ACH and you will also receive a physical card which can be used at ATMs
Other payment methods include:
If you should run into trouble, most options are available 24/7. Phone service is not 24/7.
We found the email option to be the most pleasing, as the Live Chat seemed excessively slow. Alternatively, if you prefer speaking to a real person, you can dial their support contact number.
All three options deal with the sportsbook exclusively, not DFS, so bear this in mind when making contact from the site. FanDuel also has an extensive FAQ’s page, if you want to troubleshoot the matter yourself.
With already a state-of-the-art in-person sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook WV will take the next step into excellence once they launch online sports betting.
