About the Gaming Establishment

Description from the Licensee:

FanDuel has been at the forefront of online sports wagering since the repeal of PASPA in 2018. FanDuel has established itself as the clear leader in sports betting, leading to several industry recognitions such as winning the “Digital Operator of the Year’ at the Global Gaming Expo and FanDuel’s CEO, Amy Howe, being named “American Executive of the Year.”

In addition to FanDuel’s nationwide performance, it has an exceptionally strong position in northeast states and is confident that its strategy can be fully deployed in the Commonwealth and bear similar results.

FanDuel seeks to delight our customers and continually enhance their in-app experience through our product. FanDuel’s mobile sports wagering platform has been developed with user experience in mind, and consistently receives high marks for the seamless user experience and intuitive wagering interface of its sports wagering mobile applications in quarterly product testing by Eilers & Krejcik Gaming, LLC.

FanDuel is committed to promoting and providing tools to help users manage their activity on our mobile sports wagering platform. FanDuel users are provided with a suite of responsible gaming tools, including limits that can be set on deposits, wagers, and time spent on the platform. In addition to these user-operated tools, FanDuel provides in-product tools and reminders including self-exclusion resources, timeouts (opportunities for users to take a shorter break), and engagement after certain deposit metrics are hit. In addition to posting information and tools, FanDuel trains its employees to recognize potential responsible gaming issues and to direct its users to these responsible gaming information and tools. FanDuel has further cemented its status as a pioneer in responsible gaming by becoming the first online operator to partner with the American Gaming Association in its “have a Game Plan” initiative.
