FanDuel’s mission is to transform the world of fantasy sports with daily games. We are passionate about the huge advantages the daily format has for players: super-charged excitement and competition, massive prizes, fast payouts and unbeatable game selection. We strongly believe these reasons will drive it to be bigger than traditional fantasy sports.
From humble beginnings in 2009 FanDuel has grown the daily fantasy concept to a point where we now pay out over $6m in prizes every week. Some players gross over $5k a day in winnings. More on our story
