In September 2018, FanDuel originally opened a land-based sportsbook at the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs. On Aug. 26th, 2019 FanDuel’s online sportsbook then launched in West Virginia.
If you’re a new signup in West Virginia, you can take advantage of FanDuel’s $500 risk-free first bet offer.

FanDuel WV currently features a $500 free bet with sign-up. This means that you can make a bet of up to $500, and if you win, you keep the winnings. If you lose, you receive a refund of the full amount back to your account.
As you might expect, FanDuel constantly offers constantly changing promotions and bonuses. From risk-free bets to better odds on a game, FanDuel keeps a busy promotional plan with competitors William Hill and DraftKings in the West Virginia market.
FanDuel also offers a generous bonus program.
The FanDuel’s Players Club, for instance, is an exciting program that rewards players with loyalty points based on play. More points earn you a high-loyalty tier, which comes with escalating levels of rewards.
The best part, your points remain active as long as you place a bet within 12 months. Meaning your points can potentially never expire, granting you prolonged access to your tier benefits even when you take a break.
With the constant trades, injuries and weather updates that can make a difference in a sport betters strategy and odds, having a reliable app is key to any modern sportsbook. FanDuel displays dominance in this category with its history as a daily fantasy sports provider.
FanDuel’s app is similar to what is available in New Jersey.
The FanDuel app is available on iPhone/iPad and Android. The product works almost the same as the website with easy-to-navigate shortcuts that display sports, past bets, future bets, popular bets, live games, and future events. Even your betting slip matches the online version.
Downloading the app is easy. Apple users simply go to the iTunes Store and download the app.
Android users have to download from the FanDuel website, as unfortunately, the Google Play Store does not have it.
FanDuel offers a wide variety of sports in the West Virginia market. The law is pretty broad but allows for most sports betting except for high school sports.

FanDuel has a very user-friendly platform with a lot of information in its “FAQ” and “New Player” sections, which help players sort most issues on their own. But if there is ever something that you cannot figure out, customer service is just a click away.

Employees are not allowed to gamble on the app for transparency.
There have been complaints about inaccessible documentation for players before. However, this is a minor inconvenience in the larger scope of things. Overall, you can trust that FanDuel is a secure online sportsbook, with excellent player data security.
