Is Fanduel Legit – Good The Bad & The Ugly Review

In today’s post, I will be reviewing Fanduel. Is it legit? In this article, I will give you the good the bad and the ugly. It won’t be too long. But it will get the point across and hopefully give you the answers you are here for. I get asked all the time. Is Fanduel legit? Is it this and is it that? I will lay it all out on the table here. I am really going to be as honest as I can. But Fanduel is a big part of my income so. It may be a little bias. But who cares. Let’s get to it.


Is Fanduel Legit?



Yes, Fanduel is legit. They are a huge company and have thousands if not millions of users. They pay on time. I have been a member for a very long time and I have yet to get a late payment and I withdraw all the time. I’m waiting on a payment now as I write this.

I’m sure it will be here tomorrow or the next day for sure. They don’t take money out of your account for any reason. I have had times in my life where I have had over $50,000 in my Fanduel account. I had that plus some in there for about 6 months. It was never touched.

I will say you are safer with that much money on your Fanduel account. Then you are in your checking account. With your bank. They never ask you to give them money in exchange for something. In other words, you aren’t bribed in any way from them directly.

You are on there and you can do whatever you want. Within Fanduel’s guidelines. Other players have no way of communicating with you on Fanduel. You use to could chat with opponents. But that quickly got out of hand and now it’s not accessible on the site no more.

So you cannot be tricked or bribed by any of your opponents either. While on Fanduel’s site. So all in all Fanduel is legit and is not stealing your money.


Pros To Fanduel

They have a support system. So whenever you have any questions or issues. Just click the support tab and contact them directly.

I was having an issue not too long ago. With entering a contest. The person from the support team quickly responded to my message. He let me know that it was something going on with the AT&T tower and I needed to be on wifi in order to enter from my phone. He also let me know it was not anything to be alarmed about and they would have it fixed soon. It’s easy to view your account.

Not only can you view your account. But you can go through and look at all the transactions that have taken place on there as well. Any strange activity can be seen by you. You can also get to the support tab. By clicking the help drop down beside your username.

This is the method I use and is right there in your face. So it’s hard not to see it. You can view a lot of other things from the help tab too. Not just to contact support.

Nothing on their site is vague or leaves you asking questions. Everything you need to know about them. Can be found in writing on their site somewhere. If not there is always my site. Or you can ask me questions personally in the comments area. I’m on every day. So I will see and respond to your comment.

It’s not a cheesy site. It is well put together and well managed. I have been on some bad DFS sites trust me. Fanduel is the upper echelon of DFS hands down.


Cons To Fanduel

Thinking Face

Thinking Face

In some areas, it’s considered gambling and isn’t allowed in certain states. That’s a bummer. But it is what it is I guess. They often times have to go to court and fight cases and prove that their site is a game of skill and all that fun stuff. It has been successful in the past. Seeing that they just opened back up to New York players.

The company has had it’s fair share of negative publicity. Not too long ago it was allegations brought to the public that both employees from Fanduel and Draftkings were playing on the opposing site and cashing big. This was never proven to be true.

But was said to be possible because they have access to sensitive information. To help them win those games. As of today, it has not been brought to the light yet. But both sites have said that there is no funny business going on. So they say.

It seems like the same guy’s cash big all the time. I’m not saying they are cheating or have insider information but if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it probably is a duck. You will see once you start playing tournaments. It’ll always be like 3 guys cashing big in every contest and every sport. Either they are cheating or really damn good at DFS. That’s beyond good. That’s God mode.



With all of that said and done. Fanduel is a great company to be apart of. You do not have anything to worry about. Nothing that will cause you financial issues. Unless you do it to yourself. Like I said earlier I have been a member of Fanduel since they first came out. I have not ever had any issues with them. That didn’t get solved in within 15mins to an hour. I still am a member today. So from my perspective and point of view. It is legit. Does it have it’s flaws yes. But so does everything on this planet. So take it how you may. I’m gone stick with them.

That’s all I have for this post. Is Fanduel Legit? I gave you the good the bad and the ugly. So it shouldn’t be anything else to talk about. But if you do have any questions. Please leave them in the comments area below. I will be sure to get back to you asap. If you have not by now. You should create your free Fanduel account. The image below has a link in it. Once you click it you will be taken to Fanduel’s sign up page. Fill out the information they ask you to. Then you can start creating line-ups within the first 30 seconds of joining the site. I already have my NFL lineup ready for next Sunday.

    I appreciate the open, honest apoint you gave for your review on fan duel. I have seen a few sites now that offer these services, but it can get hard at times to know which ones are trustworthy or not.

    For the most part, they can be reliable with making payments and being legit it comes down to the internal workings of whether there are ways you can lose money getting caught up what others approach you with and how the fee structure is.

    You’ve pointed out that this site has taken care of those kinds of problems which is great. Do they also work with Paypal for a way of you paying into your account?

    Well I am very glad that I got to review this article. I use fanduel and I am planning to use it this weekend for week 1 of the NFL. You gave a great review about the site and let the viewer decide if they should explore it more. Personally, I think Fanduel is great. They have always been very prompt when cashing out or depositing money. I have never used Draft Kings but I have heard positive reviews about that site as well. Great job on informing the viewer about just what Fanduel can provide.
