FanDuel has partnered with Boyd Gaming and Valley Forge Casino in Pennsylvania to run a retail sportsbook at the King of Prussia location since March of 2019. FanDuel excited Keystone State sports bettors this week when they took this sportsbook live and online!
The FanDuel online sportsbook becomes the fourth to launch in PA, following three other casino sportsbook operators that launched earlier this year:
- SugarHouse Casino (PlaySugarHouse) – launched May 2019
- Rivers Casino Pittsburgh (BetRivers) – launched June 2019
- Parx Casino – launched June 2019
Valley Forge Casino and FanDuel will also soon be launching an online casino through their BetFair brand that will run alongside/within the sportsbook site and app.

New FanDuel online sportsbook sign-ups are eligible for a risk-free bet up to $500. More new and exciting bonuses will be available as well once the online casino goes live.

FanDuel’s $500 free bet promotion in detail:
This is a somewhat industry standard promotional free bet being offered to new FanDuel signups in PA. To take advantage of it, simply make a bet on the FanDuel PA online sportsbook (if you make multiple bets with your first betslip ticket, the first bet listed will be considered the promotional bet).
If you win the bet, nothing happens (except that you won a sports bet, yay!)
If you lose the bet, you will receive your bet back (up to $500) in the form of on-site credit within 72 hours. To turn this “free play” back into real money, simply play through (make bets on the site) the credited amount 1x times. Whatever money you win is yours to do with as you wish.
One important point: make sure to play your freeplay credits through within seven days or they will expire.
Sports betting online with FanDuel in PA
Pennsylvania’s sports bettors have good reason to expect a good experience betting with FanDuel. The well-known Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) brand was recently acquired by UK sportsbook and casino gaming giant Paddy Power Betfair. The synergy gained by the acquisition has proven successful in the US already as FanDuel/BetFair has been a very popular and successful operation for a while now in neighboring New Jersey.
It is legal for any person 21 years of age or older who is currently in the state of Pennsylvania to make online bets through a site or app licensed by the state. Bettors need not reside in PA, they just need to be physically in the borders of the state at the time they make their bet(s).
The FanDuel PA online sportsbook (and soon BetFair online casino – more below) can be accessed by any computer or mobile device using a web browser or mobile app. Android device users can download the appropriate app directly from the FanDuel sportsbook website while iOS (Apple) device users can download the app from the iOS app store.
Lots of sports/games to bet on
Since FanDuel is a world-wide brand, they offer a world-wide range of sports, games, and contests to make wagers on. All the major US professional and collegiate sports one would expect at any US sportsbook are available. In addition are some unique offerings like mixed martial arts, cricket, darts, golf, boxing, auto racing, rugby, Australian rules football, soccer, tennis and many more.
Another nice feature of betting with a global sportsbook operator is that as new games become popular in niche markets, they will create online betting opportunities right here at home.
FanDuel bettors can make in-game bets live as matches are underway.
FanDuel offers a special Odds Boost section with daily offerings to give bettors a shot at great odds. In this area the site offers special teasers, props, and parlays that are interesting and fun – and offer great payouts!
Coming Soon: The FanDuel Online Casino – BetFair
Valley Forge Casino holds licenses that allow online casino gaming as well as an online (and retail) sportsbook. They have yet to launch this online casino but will probably do so later this year (2019). When they do, it is a sure bet it will be the BetFair online casino in tandem with FanDuel. This online gaming combo is currently operational in New Jersey, giving PA bettors a great preview of what is likely on tap when BetFair comes to PA.
As outlined above, BetFair is likely to launch with some nice introductory bonuses, including $10 for signing up and a 100% matching initial deposit bonus up to $2,500. If and when other special offers are announced, we will showcase them here.
Online Casino Games
Valley Forge is licensed for all three online casino game types: slots, table games, and peer-to-peer gaming (online poker). How they plan to implement the online poker aspect of this is unclear, but the slots and table game offerings on BetFair should be robust.
BetFair’s online slot offerings boast over 300 different titles including some well-known casino-floor favorites like Family Guy, Slingo, Yahtzee, Jeopardy, Guns N Roses, and many more.
BetFair includes among their online slots several exciting versions that contain a progressive jackpot feature. A progressive jackpot is a top prize (or prizes) that increases in value as players play the game. Some progressive jackpots can get quite large and offer a giant payoff when hit. Slots with progressive jackpots on BetFair are:
- Divine Fortune
- One Red Cent
- Jackpot Jester – Wild Nudge
- Soaring Stallion
- Lucky Shih Tzu
- Gong Xi Fa Cai
- Colossus Frac/Pot
BetFair’s online table games selection is equally plentiful, with many different variants on classic casino floor games like roulette, blackjack, and baccarat as well as some unique games like Hi-Lo Solitaire.
BetFair also has options for video poker enthusiasts to play online including well-known classics like Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild, Bonus Poker, and Double-Double Bonus Poker as well as unique variants like Poker Bet.
BetFair/FanDuel: accessed from same site/app, same wallet
Online bettors in Pennsylvania can expect using the FanDuel and BetFair platforms to be easy with a seamless transition between the two interfaces. On both web browser and app, the casino can be accessed from the sportsbook and vice versa.
Also, PA bettors will be able to use the same wallet, cashier and payment processors on FanDuel Sportsbook as BetFair casino. Funds will be transferable from one platform to the other fairly easily.
