FanDuel Ontario sportsbook review 2023


FanDuel: Our verdict

FanDuel is a sportsbook that undoubtedly knows how to give bettors a fun experience. Their platform does a lot of things well, including (but not restricted to) their slick in-play betting interface, consistently competitive odds, industry-leading mobile app, and much more.

On top of that, they are continually looking to improve and modernize their product. Most notably, they recently announced a multi-year partnership with the NHL, making it the first sports betting company to join forces with the league’s official governing body. It’s an incredibly exciting development, especially for hockey bettors.

For those reasons and more, it isn’t hard to see why FanDuel has quickly become one of the most reliable and coveted sportsbook options around.

FanDuel market coverage and betting options in Ontario

Does FanDuel have good odds?

FanDuel ensures that you’re never short of markets and sports to bet on. They offer competitive lines for 20 different sports, including the most popular in Canada such as hockey, football, baseball, and basketball. They also have dozens of markets available for games in the biggest leagues such as the NHL, NFL, NBA, and MLB. As a regulated sportsbook in Canada, FanDuel does not tax payouts on winning bets and betting limits vary per sport and event.

Does FanDuel offer live betting?

FanDuel boasts an excellent live betting platform. Its slick interface and plethora of in-play options springboards the sportsbook’s overall popularity and the easy-to-use layout doesn’t overwhelm beginners, yet still provides enough information and stats for advanced bettors.

When you are logged in to FanDuel, an encircled red number in the top left corner helpfully displays many live betting events are ongoing. Their live betting platform also includes live streaming for certain events and cash out options for selected markets, denoted by a $ icon. FanDuel’s live betting options are also fully available on their mobile app.

FanDuel app review

FanDuel offers a highly-rated free to download mobile app available for both Android (rated 4.7 stars) and iOS (rated 4.8 stars). Fitted with an easy to use and responsive interface, their app offers seamless navigation that makes both depositing and withdrawing money and placing bets refreshingly easy.

Live bets and popular events are clearly laid out so bettors don’t have to search endlessly to find what they’re looking for. While the absence of a direct search bar is a minor complaint, it doesn’t detract from what is one of the most innovative sportsbook apps around. If you use FanDuel consistently, downloading the app is a must to enhance your experience.

Reviews of the FanDuel app from bettors in Ontario in November 2022 include:

  • "Good range of markets that makes it easy to place bets."

  • "A strong app clearly built with sports fans in mind."

  • "The customer service staff deal with any problems quickly and efficiently."


FanDuel's reputation

With an estimated customer base of over 12 million bettors, FanDuel has quickly become one of the most popular sportsbooks in North America since it was launched in 2009. As a platform also revered for their daily fantasy sports offerings (which unfortunately are not yet available in Ontario), they are regarded as industry leaders for sports-focused products.

This is highlighted by the fact that they won the North America Sportsbook Operator of the Year award at both the 2021 Gaming Intelligence Awards and EGR Virtual Awards. As mentioned, their mobile app also has ratings of 4.8 and 4.7 stars for iOS and Android respectively, from over 500,000 customer reviews as of June 2022.

How safe is FanDuel in Ontario?

The AGCO has granted FanDuel a license to operate in Ontario’s newly regulated single-game market, meaning it is safe and legal to use in the province. Since 2018 they have been owned by Paddy Power, who are also licensed by the UK Gambling Commission.

FanDuel keeps all personal data and information secure via advanced technologies and procedures, and takes Responsible Gaming very seriously, as is expected of every legally-operating sportsbook.

Is FanDuel regulated in Ontario?

FanDuel recently received its license from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) and is a fully-fledged member of the province’s newly legalized single-game betting market. You can only sign up and create a FanDuel account if you’re physically located in Ontario (or a US state FanDuel legally operates in).

FanDuel support

FanDuel ticks most of the boxes for having a responsive, reliable, and genuinely helpful customer service team. Bettors can get help from their 24/7 live chat platform, support email address, and detailed FAQ section.

However, their live chat function isn’t as helpful as some other top sportsbooks, as it is operated by bots using automated responses. Therefore, it can be limited in its ability to help with particularly specific queries, requiring you to request to speak to an actual customer service representative. As per the sportsbook itself, FanDuel’s customer support tools are also only available in English.
