FanDuel Indiana Sportsbook Review
In the race to the top, FanDuel is used to hearing DraftKings mentioned in the same breath. The FanDuel Sportsbook app in Indiana came out 19 days after the DraftKings app, but it didn’t take long for FanDuel to once again establish its heavyweight status in the sports betting industry. It never really does and FanDuel, in some states, is even more of a king.
v Through licensing with Belterra Casino Resort and Blue Chip Casino, the FanDuel Sportsbook mobile app launched on October 21, 2019. Indianans were plenty familiar with the daily fantasy sports operator turned sports betting operator because FanDuel had been operating in the state for a long time. Previous Governor Mike Pence gave his seal of approval to DFS in 2016. FanDuel was already a household name in the state.
What FanDuel didn’t have was the same established clientele as DraftKings because DK had already been catering to the northwest part of the state and the Chicago metro area with its retail sportsbook at the Ameristar Casino East Chicago. Still, what FanDuel has been able to do to close the gap speaks to what kind of product they have put out around the country.
With retail sportsbooks at Belterra and Blue Chip, a top of the line app with technical support from both IGT and PPB, and a name that carries a lot of respect, FanDuel is major player in the Hoosier State.
The FanDuel Faction
Let’s make kind of a weird comparison, but roll with it. Remember factions in pro wrestling? The nWo? D Generation X? Things like that. Well, if FanDuel was a faction, it would run things. IGT is one of the gaming industry’s foremost tech companies. The PPB stands for Paddy Power Betfair, which is a powerhouse in European sports betting.
Then there’s FanDuel. A company that thrived in the DFS space and has continued to thrive in the sports betting space. Basically, in a long-winded way, what we’re saying is that this is quite possibly the preeminent sports betting app in the industry. From a gorgeous, streamlined, exceptional standard interface to a dynamic and flawless live betting interface, some would say that this app is unrivaled in the gambling world.
Something great about the FanDuel app is that its appearance is very similar to that of the website, so those that transition between the two won’t have to spend time getting acclimated to one or the other. There are a lot of betting markets on FanDuel and it can be overwhelming to find what you want, but the fact that the app and the website mirror each other in a lot of ways will make it much easier on you.
It sure feels like a lot of consideration was put into the fact that there would be a lot of new bettors in the United States. Some of the apps that have been around in Las Vegas for the last few years didn’t change anything. They just assimilated their products into new states. The operators that were just starting out with New Jersey or other states in the US market have had much more streamlined, much simpler formats.
It really works well. What also works well is that Indiana has remote registration. That means that you can sign up for the betting apps from anywhere. You cannot place your bets unless you are within the borders of Indiana, but you can sign up from anywhere to see the look and scan the odds.
Download, Sign-Up, Deposit, Withdrawal
The first step in getting with FanDuel is to download the app. Or you can visit the website, whichever you prefer. If you are an Android user, you either have to visit the website to download the app or make sure that your existing DFS app is updated with the Sportsbook component. If you are an iOS (Apple) user, you can download the app from the Apple Store.
Once you have downloaded the app or gone to the website, personal information will be required to sign up. Name, address, email address, phone number, social security number, etc. Remember, the legal betting age in Indiana is 21, so you’ll have to be at least 21 years old to use the app.
Depositing is easy. Because these DFS operators like FanDuel have been taking deposits for a long time, the list of deposit methods is pretty extensive. Other things have been added to make getting your money in a whole lot easier. Visa, Mastercard, electronic bank transfers, online payment processors like PayPal and PayNearMe, are all options, but you can also deposit at the retail sportsbooks or casino cages if you are so inclined.
With the exception of credit cards, just about all of the same deposit methods can be used for withdrawals as well. Processing times vary based on the method of choice, but FanDuel is committed to fast payouts.
Promotions, Perks, & Bonuses
Along with a very friendly first deposit bonus, FanDuel, like so many other online and mobile sportsbooks, offers a bevy of bonuses and a plethora of promotions. FanDuel offers parlay insurance. They also offer a bunch of Odds Boosts on various events. You can also look for different contests, pools, and tournaments to enter.
Most of these additional promos and bonuses do not require any additional deposits. Most will have minimum or maximum bet amounts attached to them, but those are very reasonable limits.
Promotions will come in all shapes and sizes, too, much like the wager types at FanDuel. Most of the Odds Boosts will be on straight wagers, like sides, totals, and money lines. The parlay insurance applies to bets with multiple wagers on the same ticket. There are likely to be Odds Boost offers on props and maybe even sometimes on futures as well. It is something new every day at FanDuel.
