Located in New York City, FanDuel is one of the two giants in Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS). The signup and deposit process is simple, and they offer contests with as little as a $1 buyin. They even have a money-back guarantee up to $100 if you’re not satisfied (see site for terms and conditions). We don’t know of any other site offering that.
If you’ve never tried DFS, playing is simple. You’re given a “salary cap” of virtual bucks, just like a real team owner. The goal is to draft the best team you can to defeat all your opponents. FanDuel now features some contests that are for beginners only, so that you can learn how to play (while winning money) and playing against other beginners.
As far as prizes, they have mind-blowing numbers. Last football season, they had prize pools topping $10 million dollars.
If you think DFS is just about football, think again. FanDuel offered a $1 million dollar prize pool on NBA contests this year, and their baseball championship will pay $1 million dollars to the winner.
Our partner promotion changes from time to time, but currently by using our partner link, you can get 5 free beginner contest entries with your first deposit!
Fanduel.com is available in the United States and Canada. However, it is not available for real money play in the following states: Alabama, Arizona, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Nevada, Texas or Washington.
