Casino Game Selection at FanDuel
If you love playing lots of casino games you will love the selection at FanDuel Casino. And if you are someone who likes to play just one or two slots or table games you can be sure to find your favorites. If you want to try out new games FanDuel offers a demo and lots of information to help you decide before risking your cash. Just click the heart icon at the bottom right of each game listing.
Slots are the staple of every online casino. FanDuel Casino offers more than 340 slot titles including big hits like Divine Fortune. Jackpot slots can be found under the "Jackpots" menu item. When you have favorites you can mark them as such and then get back to them quickly using the "Favorites" menu tab. This is especially useful if you are playing on a mobile device with a small screen. It is also an option that only a few of FanDuel's competitors offer.
Apart from Divine Fortune, which is America's number one slot, you will find other top titles such as Wheel of Fortune, Monopoly, Cleopatra and El Dorado. Slots are available with spins as low as $0.01 but if you want to play for big money there are plenty of slots offering stakes of $20, $30, $50 or more.
Blackjack (Table Games)
FanDuel launched its online casino with a very weak offering for blackjack players. Since then it has beefed up its offer to include eight different titles and nine live dealer games. Online blackjack plays much faster than live blackjack so if you want the leisurely luxury of the live casino experience opt for the live dealer games. Stakes now range from extremely low to breathtaking!
Roulette (Table Games)
There are four types of roulette on offer at FanDuel online casino — American Roulette, European Roulette, Advanced Roulette and French Roulette. You can also play at two live dealer games. Your odds of winning are better at European roulette where the house advantage is just 2.7%. Low-stakes roulette is available from $1 per bet.
Unusual roulette games include Double Bonus Spin Roulette which offers a top payout of 1,200 times your bet.
