FanDuel PA Online Sportsbook Promo Code and Review

When Pennsylvania passed a massive gaming expansion back in October 2017, Valley Forge Casino was arguably the biggest winner. Acquired by Boyd Gaming in December 2017, Valley Forge was able to expand their casino gaming floor, was no longer required to charge a fee to enter the casino, and had lofty expectations for online gaming and sports betting.

Valley Forge seems to have hit the jackpot with their sports betting partner as well. FanDuel is by far the number one online sportsbook in neighboring New Jersey and one of the leading daily fantasy sports operators in the country. The FanDuel retail sportsbook opened its doors in March 2019, and if all goes according to plan, FanDuel will be one of the first online sportsbooks to launch in Pennsylvania.

FanDuel PA Online Sportsbook Promo Code and Bonus Offers

Over the next few months, there is going to be some fierce competition in the Keystone State with up to 9 online sportsbooks planning to launch. To get a leg up on the competition, sportsbooks will often offer generous welcome packages, bonuses and promo codes in order to get you to give their sportsbook a look.

Taking a look at what FanDuel has to offer as a welcome package in New Jersey, we expect FanDuel to offer the same in Pennsylvania.

  • Risk Free Bet up to $500: When you sign up for a new account and make your first deposit, FanDuel offers a $500 free bet. Place your first sports wager of up to $500, and if you lose that bet, FanDuel will refund your account in site credit within 72 hours. If the bet wins, you will be simply paid out the winnings for your bet.
  • Eligibility: To be eligible for the free bet, you must deposit at least $10 in the first 7 days and you will automatically be enrolled in the promotion.
  • Promotions: FanDuel often offers various promotions including but not limited to:
    • Parlay Insurance: Place a parlay bet of up to 4 legs and if one leg loses, you get a full refund on the bet.
    • Boosted Odds: Select games or props will have increased odds for a larger payout of you win.
    • NHL Playoff Insurance: If your team scores 3+ goals and loses, get up to $50 back in site credit.
    • NBA Playoff Insurance: If your moneyline bet loses in OT, get up to $50 in site credit.

What Advantages Will FanDuel Have in the Pennsylvania Online Sports Betting Market?

  • Great Partners: While Valley Forge Casino is routinely one of the lowest earning casinos in Pennsylvania, partnering with two of the biggest names in online gaming will certainly give them a leg up on the competition. FanDuel is the number one online sportsbook and Paddy Poker Betfair is the number one online casino in New Jersey. Both companies have some of the best marketing, best customer service and some of the best bonuses and promotions in the Garden State.
  • Brand Recognition: FanDuel has become a household name with a great reputation and is one of the top brands among the Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) crowd. DFS players that are thinking of placing their first sports bet will surely go to a familiar name, and if shared account balances carry over like in New Jersey, they won’t even have to make a deposit.
  • Experience: Being number one in a very competitive New Jersey market doesn’t happen by mistake. The experience FanDuel has acquired in New Jersey will surely carry over state lines and place FanDuel among the industry leaders in PA online sports betting.
  • Amazing Software: Aesthetically pleasing, easy to use, quickly updated lines and some of the best bet offerings in the industry are what sets FanDuel way ahead of the competition.

FanDuel Retail Sportsbook at Valley Forge Casino

The FanDuel branded sportsbook, conveniently located near the entrance of Valley Forge Casinos gaming floor, took their first wagers on March 13, 2019, just before the start of March Madness. The FanDuel sportsbook offers:

  • Seven teller windows
  • Six self service Kiosks
  • Seating for 30 patrons
  • 29 video displays
  • 2 sports tickers.

The 1800 square foot sportsbook is small, but flows right out to a casino that offers plenty of bars with flat screen TVs, and several other flat screen TVs spread through the gaming floor to watch your favorite games while you play your favorite slot or table game. While other casinos segregate their sportsbook from the rest of the casino games, Valley Forge did a great job integrating the sportsbook as just another gaming option.
