FanDuel IL - Legal website in the U.S.
For the longest time, Illinois legislators required the state's online gamblers to register in person through a retail gambling facility. After finally setting that regulation aside, there has been an onslaught of new online/mobile sports betting operators setting up shop in Illinois. Fanduel is one of those bookmakers and should be considered a welcome addition to the state's growing roster of sports betting providers.
Illinois sports bettors can interact with the Fanduel website via a PC or laptop/web browser combination. Mobile device users can download the native mobile app, which is compatible with the most popular operating systems (iOS/Android/Blackberry).
While U.S. and Illinois sports bettors tend to prefer wagering on U.S.-based sports leagues and teams, they have learned to appreciate the chance to wager on sports at the international level as well. To the credit of management at Fanduel, the operator's sports bettors have access to dozens of betting markets each day.
From the U.S., wagers are accepted on NCAA BB (men's and women's), NCAA football, NASCAR, PGA Golf Tour, and major professional sports leagues like the NFL, NHL, MLB, MSL, NBA, WNBA, and the NHL.
From abroad, Illinois bettors can wager on top European and South American soccer leagues, Aussie Rules Football, the CFL, tennis, Euro Basketball, boxing, darts, cricket, rugby, cycling, motorsports, and more.
Since so many Illinois sports bettors are recreational bettors, they tend to prefer lots of different wagering options. Fanduel is more than happy to oblige by offering popular betting options like parlays, point spread straight bets, money line straight bets, teasers, prop bets, futures odds betting, live in-game betting, and even round robins.
It's good to see that Fanduel is willing to accommodate bettors at all levels by having liberal betting limits.
Bonuses and Promotions
While Fanduel might not offer the most or the biggest sportsbook bonuses and promotions, they do offer some variety. The current bonus menu shows a group of offers that focus on free bets, a referral bonus and reload deposit options.
The welcome bonus is competitive and pretty much in line with industry standards. The offer includes a risk-free bet of up to $1,000 based on each customer's first sports wager. If that wager loses, Fanduel customers get a matching free bet voucher with a 1x playthrough requirement.
Banking and Customer Service
After joining Fanduel, customers can make deposits and withdrawals with any of the following banking options: American Express, MasterCard, Discover, VISA, PayNearMe, bank transfers, and PayPal.
Customer service reps are available around the clock via email, live chat, or phone.
Verdict: After gaining over 12 years of experience as a gambling provider in the U.S., Fanduel is definitely worthy of consideration from Illinois sports bettors.
