FanDuel Launches Sports Betting App In Maryland

  • FanDuel has announced the launch of their sports betting app in Maryland.
  • Maryland’s online gaming market launched on November 23, 2022.
  • Maryland is the 17th state for FanDuel’s mobile and/or online platform.

Despite a bumbling effort by regulators, the mobile sports betting market is finally up and running in Maryland. We’ll be running through the recent launches as more operators begin to serve the state. No big surprise that Flutter Entertainent PLC owned FanDuel was one of the first to go live with their online/mobile offering. Maryland residents can download the FanDuel app for iOS or mobile, or bet online via their web platform.

Here’s the ‘official announcement’ from a FanDuel press release:

Today, FanDuel Group announced the launch of America’s #1 Sportsbook in the state of Maryland. Starting at 9 a.m. ET, sports fans in Maryland can download the FanDuel Sportsbook app for iOS and Android or play via desktop.

The FanDuel Sportsbook brings its best-in-class online sports betting experience to the passionate sports fans of Maryland, who will now be able to place wagers across the state on professional and college football, basketball, baseball, hockey, golf, MMA, boxing, soccer, and tennis with a variety of betting and payment options available.

Here’s what FanDuel has to say about their app:

FanDuel Sportsbook app is simple, secure, and convenient with a number of key features, including:

  • Bet $5 and get $200 in Free Bets for online customers: Sign up for the FanDuel Sportsbook and make a deposit of at least $10. Place your first bet of at least $5 and automatically receive $200 in sportsbook Free Bets. Customers can also Refer and Friend by inviting friends to join and both receive $100 in free bets.
  • An Innovative Spirit: FanDuel was the first U.S. sportsbook to offer Same Game ParlayTM bets, the first to offer live streaming of sporting events inside a betting app, the first to provide Bad Beat Relief, the first to give early payouts for championship teams, and the originator of the crowdsourced Spread the Love promotion.
  • Customer Focused: FanDuel Sportsbook offers safe and secure banking, lightning-fast payouts, a Cash-Out early feature, and 24/7 customer service.
  • Sports Betting 101: FanDuel Sportsbook has an online betting guide to help customers learn the ins and outs of legal sports betting.
  • Commitment to Responsible Gaming: FanDuel is the industry leader in promoting responsible play, including in-app tools that allow customers to set time, deposit and wager limits, as well as its Play Well site where customers can find additional support services.

Unfortunately, there’s no quote from a FanDuel representative in the press release. As a public service, I’ll provide a reasonable facsimile of what it would have likely said:

“All of us at FanDuel are thrilled to bring our ‘best of breed’ sports betting platform to the passionate sports fans of Maryland. The Terrapin state knows a winner when they see one, and that’s why we think they’ll love our easy to use apps for iOS and mobile. As the largest sports betting operator in North America, we look forward to serving the sports fans of Maryland with our unrivaled sports betting and fan engagement experiences.”

Not bad, if I do say so myself. When I was composing the quote I accidentally misspelled ‘Terrapin’ and my spellcheck corrected it to “terrine’. I was tempted to leave it like that.

FanDuel also has a retail sportsbook located at the Live! Casino & Hotel in Hanover, Maryland. Hanover is an unincorporated part of the Baltimore metro area located adjacent to BWI International Airport. The Maryland launch makes it 17 states for Fan Duel’s mobile and/or online sports betting platform joining Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Wyoming.
