Residents and Visitors to Iowa Can Now Place Wagers on the FanDuel Sportsbook App

New York, NY — September 3, 2020 — FanDuel Group today announced the launch of the FanDuel Sportsbook app and online experience in Iowa. In partnership with Boyd Gaming, Iowa is the seventh state in the United States where the industry-leading FanDuel Sportsbook online and mobile platform is available. FanDuel is bringing its best-in-class online sports betting experience to sports fans who can now place wagers across professional football, basketball, baseball, golf, MMA, soccer, and tennis with a multitude of betting and payment options available.

The FanDuel Sportsbook is available for download via iOS and Android for residents and visitors to Iowa. In order to activate a FanDuel online or mobile sports betting account in Iowa, customers will need to visit one of the FanDuel Sportsbooks at Diamond Jo Casino in either Dubuque or Northwood Iowa and complete their registration.  After registering in person, FanDuel customers can wager via the FanDuel Sportsbook app and online experience from anywhere in the state.  After January 1, 2021, new customers will no longer be required to register at the casino in person.        

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

  • Industry-leading promotions: New customers will receive $100 in site credits for activating their online account at Diamond Jo Casino and no deposit is required. Walk into a Diamond Jo Casino in Iowa, show your ID with your FanDuel Account and a customer service agent will finalize your registration and place $100 in site credit in your account.    
  • Innovative Spirit: FanDuel was the first US Sportsbook to offer live streaming of sporting events inside a betting app and the first to offer Same Game Parlays, which is the ability to build a parlay utilizing betting markets from the same game. 
  • FanDuel Group’s Account and Wallet Technology: FanDuel Group developed its own account and wallet technology in-house that is the backbone of the new operating system on the FanDuel Sportsbook app in Iowa. The FanDuel Sportsbook now connects to FanDuel’s popular fantasy sports app, so customers can use fantasy sports and sportsbook winnings interchangeably.
  • Cash Out:  FanDuel offers fast, secure payouts enabling customers to withdraw their winnings in as little as 24 hours. The new Cash Out feature allows you to settle a bet for a certain value before the sporting event bet on has finished. 

In addition, the FanDuel Sportsbook offers a range of payment options, safe and secure banking, lightning fast payouts usually within twenty four hours, 24/7 customer service, and in-game wagering allowing users to bet on live games as they’re being played. FanDuel utilizes its proprietary risk and trading technology that leverages the IGT PlaySports platform. The FanDuel Sportsbook also has account protections in place and a global reputation for responsible wagering.
