With many people interested in sports betting, many new companies have opened their doors. One of the most popular new companies is FanDuel. It is a daily fantasy website where people can compete every day for a wide variety of prizes. Many people have made a significant amount of money on FanDuel.
FanDuel operations are expanding across the country. The states where FanDuel is legal include Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. Numerous other states are working on developing partnerships with FanDuel as well.
Even though there are many states where FanDuel is legal, there are also states where FanDuel is not available. Importantly, no government has explicitly banned FanDuel, but FanDuel has a strict company policy and does not accept players from all locations. If the state is not listed as “live” on FanDuel’s website, players from that state are not allowed to use the service.
If you are not in a state that allows FanDuel, it is certainly possible for you to try to use a VPN to fool FanDuel into thinking that you are in a location where it is allowed. Importantly, it is incredibly risky. If FanDuel were to find out that you were using a VPN to access its services, it could claim that you are violating the terms and services of its company. Then, it could come after you, forcing you to forfeit your winnings. The company could also penalize you financially and ban you from using the services ever again. Therefore, it is not worth trying to use a VPN to access sports betting services through FanDuel.
There are many reasons why people like using FanDuel. First, many people view it as an alternative to traditional fantasy football. Many people have difficulty remaining interested in fantasy football when they realize their team is not doing well. People enjoy using FanDuel because it keeps them interested in games they otherwise might not be interested in. Even if their hometown team is not doing well, they have a reason to watch other sports to keep up with their bets. Finally, states enjoy having FanDuel because it creates another item they can tax to generate more revenue for various programs.
