FanDuel launches sports betting platform in Washington DC

Date:

FanDuel replaces GambetDC as the official sports betting platform for Washington DC.

The Office of Lottery and Gaming (OLG) has announced the official launch of FanDuel’s sports betting app and website in the District of Columbia. 

This move marks the introduction of FanDuel’s sports wagering platform to both District residents and visitors, effectively replacing the existing GambetDC sports betting app and website. 

Frank Suarez, OLG Executive Director, commented: “With FanDuel’s launch, DC residents and visitors will have access to a best-in-class sports wagering platform. FanDuel’s entry into our market brings not only a reliable, customer-friendly sports wagering experience to the nation’s capital, but it also includes guaranteed revenue that will be used to fund vital city programs.”

As of noon today, DC residents and visitors can access the FanDuel app within the geographic boundaries of the District, with the exception of specific areas where gambling is prohibited, such as federal lands and a two-block radius surrounding designated Class A facilities.

In preparation for the transition, GambetDC will cease accepting wagers on its mobile app and website by 15 April. Users are advised to withdraw their funds by 15 October 2024. The transition process will also extend to retail locations through a phased approach by the end of 2024.

FanDuel’s partnership with the Carolina Panthers in North Carolina serves as a precursor to its expansion into the DC market. The collaboration aimed to engage sports fans across the state, leveraging the Panthers’ team marks and various marketing channels.

Moreover, FanDuel recently acquired BeyondPlay, a B2B iGaming technology company, to enhance its iGaming product offerings.

With the launch of FanDuel’s sports betting platform in Washington, DC, users are expected continued support for responsible gaming practices. FanDuel’s platform includes problem gambling prevention, education and advocacy resources, along with built-in app safeguards for user protection.
