FanDuel has been in the news recently for several reasons. First and foremost FanDuel is now legal to play in the State of New York. The state passed legislation legalizing FanDuel now for New York residents. This will be a big bonus for the company because New York had been one of its biggest markets and this comes just in time for NFL daily fantasy sports.
Another big change with FanDuel is their upgrading of their interface colors & logo. As they put it “it is a new era.” They report they have spent the offseason upgrading the entire FanDuel experience both from the way they look to the way it plays.
FanDuel now boasts several million players in their community & platform.
What Are The Changes
They report that their new logo, a shield, represent them standing for a fair and level playing field.
They offer beginner contests for new players who won’t have to compete against more experienced FanDuel players.
FanDuel also now labels the most experienced players as experienced, or highly experienced. A star next to a FanDuel username indicates a large amount of contests played or money won.
They also offer contests that cap the total number of entries a particular person is allowed to enter. So no single opponent can make unlimited entries.
Another change is they no longer allow third-party scripting. Scripting is computer code that automates the way people enter contests and edit lineups. This helps ensure that people are winning due to their fantasy sports skill and not being technically superior in gaming the system.
Play Against People You Know
FanDuel offers private contests which allow you to challenge your friends or play head-to-head against a buddy.
They have also introduced more single entry contests and filters that only show contests which are limited to one entry per player. This way you don’t have to compete against players who enter 500 different lineups for the same contest unless you choose to enter a multi-entry contest.
FanDuel has partnered with 15 NFL teams and 16 NBA teams along with other world-renowned the brands that offer experiences on top of just gameplay. They continue to host free contests regularly to help you win experiences from players-only access to VIP game tickets.
FanDuel has also created a Bill of Rights so you know exactly what to expect from your relationship with them. You will also not play against any employee and no FanDuel employee has ever been allowed to enter public FanDuel contests. They have now expanded that ban to include employees of other daily fantasy sports operators, and FanDuel employees cannot compete on any competitor site either.
