FanDuel NY launch offer details

Four of the NY betting apps officially launched on Jan 8. Now live, FanDuel Sportsbook NY is authorized to allow users to create and register their online sports betting accounts and start placing their wagers.

What’s more, those users can take advantage of FanDuel’s launch offer.

Simply by signing up with FanDuel, new bettors have a few options:

  • Bet $5, win $150 in real money
  • A risk-free bet of up to $1,000

How to sign up with FanDuel New York

So the question now becomes, “How can I sign up with FanDuel and claim that bonus offer?”

The answer, and the process, is simple.

First, users can download the FanDuel Sportsbook app on their mobile devices or just click the offer button above on your desktop. From there, users will need to submit a few pieces of personal information in order for FanDuel to verify the identities of users and confirm they can legally participate in legal online sports betting.

Info to have at the ready includes:

  • Legal name
  • Date of birth
  • Last four digits of your Social Security number
  • Residential address
  • Email address
  • Telephone number

Once users submit this information and agree to FanDuel’s terms and conditions, their accounts will be created and their sign-up bonus will be on the way. While they do not need to be for creating their accounts, users must be located within New York state borders in order to bet through the FanDuel NY sports betting app.

FanDuel adds New York to its sports betting portfolio

For obvious reasons, New York has long been a target for legal online sportsbooks, with its passionate fan bases and large population, among many reasons.

FanDuel can claim New York as its own now, adding the Empire State to its ever-growing list of jurisdictions in which FanDuel operates a legal online sportsbook.

Among the other 12 states that feature a fully launched FanDuel Sportsbook are neighbors New JerseyPennsylvania and Connecticut.

While the latter is one of the newest additions to its portfolio, FanDuel has grown into an industry leader in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and certainly in all other states in which FanDuel operates.

Launching an online sportsbook in New York complements the FanDuel retail sportsbook at Tioga Downs Casino Resort in Nichols.
