Everything to Know About Fanatics Sportsbook
Fanatics has been in sports betting since before they officially acquired PointsBet. They now boast one of the best online sportsbooks in the US. They opened a retail betting location at FedEx Field, home of the Washington Commanders, in January 2023. They hired former FanDuel executive Matt King as the CEO of their Betting & Gaming Division back in 2021, and also has retail sportsbooks in Ohio courtesy of deals with the Columbus Blue Jackets and Cleveland Guardians.
New players at Fanatics Sportsbook can enjoy the sportsbook promos they’d expect from a premier mobile operator, as well as the unique FanCash rewards system. With FanCash, bettors can earn points towards merchandise and apparel by making bets. It’s a prize system unique to Fanatics, and that allows sports bettors to quickly build and easily track points that they can redeem for prizes they’ll want.
