From the lobby, you can choose any contest you'd like to enter. Even create your own contest and play against your friends. It's simple to sort by sport, contest type, payout, entry amount & more.
Some contests are winner take all, other contests share the wealth across hundreds, even thousands of winners. Wins come in all forms. How you play is your call.
Get a feel for the game — you vs. other new players. But hurry, you’re only a “beginner” for your first 50 contests on FanDuel.
We offer 3 types of Beginner contests
Beginner 50/50s: Top 50% of all entries win, no matter how many enter
Beginner Double Ups: Win 2x your entry amount, just under 50% win
Beginner Tournaments: Low entry, higher payout contests for new players
50/50 contests pay the top 50% of all teams, no matter how many enter. Just finish in the top half to win.
Take on a single opponent, winner take all. Even create your own H2H and challenge a friend.
Play for 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x your money. Each payout is proportional to how many people win. So you can play it safe, or play for more money.
The payouts are high. And so is the competition. It's you vs. fans across the country for serious cash.
Satellites & Qualifiers let you enter for less money, and winners advance to the biggest FanDuel Tournaments.
Leagues range in size from 3 - 100+ people, with your choice of entry levels and payout options. Plus, play against friends in private leagues.
You can only enter Beginner contests for your first 50 contests on FanDuel. So you can go against fellow new FanDuelers while you find your form. Here’s a few you can enter now — your choice of entry options — each contest type is great for getting practice and racking up some wins.
Friends, family, bitter rivals - create your own private contest and invite whoever you want. You can find the 'Create Contest' button in the top/right of the Lobby. Then choose 'League' or 'Head-to-head', and set your opponent as 'Friends Only'.
Not ready to take on the FanDuel elite? Our most proven players are now labeled as “experienced” or “highly experienced.” If you see a star next to any FanDuel player’s username, it means that person has reached a milestone on FanDuel: either played 500+ contests on FanDuel, or earned $2,500+ in total winnings across 6 different contests.
