How We Got Here

New York State FlagNew York isn’t there quite yet. While sports betting is legal in the state, the wait for the online and mobile app end of things continues despite several states launching online wagering platforms in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2018 decision to repeal the nationwide sports betting ban.

July 2019 marked the first time New Yorkers could legally wager on sports (brick-and-mortar locations only). Rivers Sportsbook in Schenectady, the first place in New York state where it legally opened up for sporting events, opened on July 16.

Naturally, politicians were the first to place a sports bet. Gary Pretlow, chair of the state Assembly racing and wagering committee, placed a bet on the Seattle Mariners. Schenectady Mayor Gary McCarthy put his faith in the Boston Red Sox.

The conversation surrounding opening it up for online use is as heavy as ever, with Governor Andrew Cuomo taking center stage.

FanDuel Sportsbook FAQ

Do I Need to Make a Deposit to Get My $1,000 Risk-Free Bet?

Yes, the sports bettor is required to deposit a minimum of $10. There's no downside. It would be a mistake not to place the full $1,000 on the first wager, as FanDuel offers this just once per each new account.

What if I Lose my Initial Bet?

If the FanDuel sports gambler loses the initial bet, he or she will receive site credit in the amount lost within 72 hours. You will either be credited with the winnings or credited the initial bet amount. If you win, you are free to withdraw your money and never play again.

Is FanDuel Safe?

The website is completely safe to use without anxiety. FanDuel.com uses SSL technology that protects information and allows for secure information to be passed on the internet. It's owned by a multi-billion dollar company, Flutter Entertainment, and isn’t going away anytime soon.

Can I Still Use the Initial Promo if I'm Already Registered on FanDuel.com?

Yes, you can still take advantage of the $1,000 site credit offer if you haven’t already placed a bet and utilized the promotion.

If I Win my Free Bet, Can I Withdraw the Winnings Immediately?

No, the free bet will go to your account as a promotional bonus credit. You must then bet the promotional bonus amount again in full before withdrawing. This is a common sportsbook practice and called a play-through requirement. You are free to withdraw once you meet the playthrough requirement.

What are Daily Odds Boosts?

The online sports bettor that keeps an eye on the Daily Odds Boost promotion can get more value for the money because it will bump the odds on a given outcome for any particular event, making the wager more appealing.
