On Nov. 8, the New York Gaming Commission (NYGC) issued conditional online sports betting licenses to nine different US sportsbook operators. As the biggest sportsbook in the legal US market, FanDuel led the way, and is now live as of January 8th, 2022.
The company was part of a “super bid” with three other major US operators. This means that FanDuel is now offering access to its mobile sports betting app anywhere in the Empire State.
As the exciting FanDuel sportsbook is now available all across New York, bettors there are able to take advantage of a generous welcome offer. New customers can earn a Risk-Free Bet up to $1,000 in states FanDuel is currently operating in.
This welcome offer and promo code applies to the first wager placed from a new FanDuel online sports betting account. Even if that initial bet is graded as a loss, the amount of the wager will be credited back up to $1,000.
Following its lead in other legal sports betting states, FanDuel has a complete lineup of special promotions and incentives in New York. As the No. 1 book in the legal US sports betting industry, FanDuel continues to set the standard for online sports betting.
A perfect example is a $50 Refer-A-Friend incentive. For each valid referral, FanDuel customers can earn a $50 free bet.
As an added edge in the marketplace, FanDuel is based in New York City. Through an existing partnership with Tioga Downs Casino, FanDuel also operates a retail sportsbook at this gaming venue. This land-based sports betting facility first opened in July of 2019.
Legal online sports bets in New York are able to be placed through the FanDuel website and the mobile app. Through a proven track record of success, the FanDuel Sportsbook mobile app is one of the most frequently downloaded apps in the legal US sports betting industry.
