Share:

Washington, D.C., is saying goodbye to the sports betting era dominated by GambetDC as FanDuel comes to revolutionize the game.

You can feel the winds of change as FanDuel steps in, taking the lead in Washington, D.C.’s sports betting field.

  Access and Restrictions

FanDuel’s sports wagering platform is now live, bringing a great betting experience to residents and visitors of Washington, D.C.

However, there are a few spots where the action is off-limits.

Federal lands, including iconic sites like the White House, Capitol, and Nationals Park, are among the restricted areas.

A Win-Win Situation

With an initial $5 million payment and a promise of even greater returns in the future, the District stands to gain significantly from the partnership with FanDuel.

FanDuel plans to boost tax revenue to support important city programs, making sure everyone benefits.

As FanDuel steps into the spotlight, GambetDC gracefully bows out. While its legacy will be remembered, it’s time for a fresh start.

With GambetDC ceasing wagers, users have until October 15 to settle their accounts. This marks the end of an era and the beginning of a new chapter in D.C.’s sports betting.

With FanDuel’s arrival, Washington, D.C., is set for further developments in sports betting.

Council member Kenyan McDuffie’s Sports Wagering Amendment Act of 2024 hints at a broader, more inclusive future for D.C.’s gambling possibilities, with the potential for up to seven online sports betting skins.

Partnering with local sports franchises, such as DC United and the Washington Nationals, opens new opportunities, ensuring that D.C. remains at the forefront of sports betting innovation.

With promises of revenue, excitement, and opportunity, the future looks bright for people who love sports betting and the city itself.

About FanDuel Group

FanDuel Group is an American gambling company, that offers sportsbook, daily fantasy sports, horse racing, and online casino services across several states.

Originally focused on daily fantasy sports, FanDuel shifted gears in May 2018 by merging with the U.S. operations of Irish bookmaker Paddy Power Betfair, now known as Flutter Entertainment.

This strategic move aimed to leverage FanDuel’s brand recognition and user base, establishing it as the primary brand under the FanDuel Group banner.
