FanDuel Sportsbook now offers both retail and online sports betting in West Virginia.
Its brick-and-mortar sportsbook at The Greenbrier opened for business in August 2018, and FanDuel finally rolled out its statewide mobile app in August 2019.
The company also offers a market-leading betting platform in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania, with access to many more markets in the future.
In New Jersey, FanDuel Sportsbook has two downloadable mobile apps: One is for iOS devices and one for Android devices.
The former is available in the iTunes Store, while the latter is downloadable via the FanDuel website.
The mobile app layout is nearly identical to the desktop browser. However, the only notable difference is the betting slip, which takes up the entire screen instead of popping up on the side.
Consequently, switching between the mobile app and the desktop computer is intuitive. In New Jersey, all versions of FanDuel Sportsbook’s software give you access to the same betting options and features.
FanDuel WV will offer comprehensive event coverage, which includes the following professional sports:
Since betting on local college teams isn’t illegal in West Virginia, this shouldn’t be an issue.
The sportsbook should offer many bet types, ranging from moneyline wagers and spread bets to totals, props and futures. Also, DFS fans can expect FanDuel to support betting on DFS point production of specific athletes.
When FanDuel Sportsbook becomes available in West Virginia, in-play betting should go live at the same time as pregame wagers.
The only shortcoming of FanDuel’s in-play betting package is the lack of early withdrawals.
This cash-out option gives punters an opportunity to exit winning bets before the match is complete or to cut their losses if luck doesn’t seem to be on their side. It appears that, for the time being, this option will be available exclusively with DraftKings Sportsbook, which is set for a 2019 launch in West Virginia.
In New Jersey, the available deposit options include credit or debit card, FanDuel’s prepaid card, PayPal, ACH, online bank transfer, wire transfer, PayNearMe and check.
For cash-outs, NJ bettors can choose between ACH, PayPal, FanDuel’s prepaid card and check by courier.
In addition, it seems likely that West Virginia-based customers will be able to make a deposit or request a cash-out in person at The Greenbrier Casino, FanDuel’s official partner in the Mountain State.
West Virginia residents should enjoy access to similar promotions as New Jersey-based bettors.
If that’s the case, all new customers will get to take advantage of a $500 risk-free bet. Risk-free, in this case, means that if the wager loses, it is refunded in site credit that can be spent on a new bet but can’t be cashed out.
In addition, West Virginia residents will likely enjoy access to a wide range of “insurance” promotions, which allow bettors to receive refunds on qualifying losing wagers. For example, the NHL’s Tuesday Overtime Insurance allows NJ bettors to get their money back if their team lost the Tuesday game during overtime.
FanDuel Sportsbook boasts excellent customer support in New Jersey, and we expect it to adhere to the same standards in West Virginia.
Support staff should be reachable via the following methods:
The FanDuel website should also feature a great FAQ section. If you have any questions or doubts, odds are you’ll find all the answers there without needing to contact the support team.
With a robust pregame and in-play offering as well as a decent streaming service, FanDuel is set to secure a large chunk of the West Virginia online betting market.
Clean and simple to use, the FanDuel Sportsbook app should be near the top of your list for WV sports betting.
While we wish it featured a cash-out option, new functions are added to these apps all the time, so don't rule it out in the future.
