2019 Gaming Intelligence One to Watch Operator
Of the many new entrants to the US sports betting market, FanDuel is the one that our judges are most excited about.
Its entry as a US sportsbook happened almost by stealth – and not without bumps – but amid all the fanfare of the PASPA repeal and the legislation landslide, FanDuel has been going about its business at some speed.
It is the second largest sportsbook in New Jersey, with digital revenues of US$4.4m during November and the brand has been able to leverage the marketing and financial firepower of its parent company Paddy Power Betfair, which acquired it during the summer of 2018.
FanDuel has a canny management team that has agreed tech partnerships with GAN and IGT, while cutting a strategic partnership with US gambling heavyweight Boyd Gaming and a string of agreements with sports leagues and teams. FanDuel means business.
