Android device users can now access real-money contests at FanDuel via a newly-launched dedicated app.
The app is only available via direct download at FanDuel.com.
That’s a result of Google Play policies that prohibit the listing of apps that allow real-money wagering regardless of legality.
The new app – which allows players to search contests, enter and edit lineups, manage multiple entries, check live scoring, review recent contests and manage basic account banking functions – joins an existing FanDuel-branded app that is available in the Google Play store.
That app – FanDuel Live Scoring – only allows players to check in on contests, and does not allow banking or facilitate entrances into new contests.
The launch of an Android app by FanDuel comes at a time where mobile is playing a larger role in the fantasy sports experience.
A presentation from DraftKings CEO Jason Robins at iGaming North America estimated that the total percentage of the site’s traffic flowing through mobile devices hovered near 40%, with the number dropping closer to 30% during the period of time where players set lineups and jumping to almost 50% during the period of time when games were being played.
DraftKings launched their Android app in late 2014.
… and it’s easy to see why full-fledged mobile expansion is a priority for DFS sites heading into the NFL season.
