March is Problem Gambling Awareness month, and in recognition of the occasion The Duel is here to break down the wide away of responsible gambling tools that FanDuel Sportsbook has to protect players and offer a healthy, responsible gaming product.

For a full breakdown of each tool, check out FanDuel's Responsible Gaming page.

Set Your Own User Limits

FanDuel empowers users to set their own limits in a variety of gaming areas. This includes setting your own deposit limit (capping the amount of money you're able to deposit to FanDuel in a given period of time), contest entry alert thresholds (sending you notifications if you enter too many contests in a given time period), contest entry limits (limiting how many contests you can enter in a given time period) and maximum entry fee limits (capping the entry fee of contests you can enter).

Timeout/Self Exclusion

FanDuel allows users to opt to take a break or entirely exclude themselves. The "Timeout" feature allows you to tell FanDuel how much time you need away, and then you will only be able to log into your account after that time passes.

Self exclusion gives you an indefinite amount of time off.

In Pennsylvania you can also elect to exclude yourself from all real-money gambling sites through the state Gaming Control Board website.

Iowa residents have the option to exclude themselves from FanDuel through the Racing & Gaming Commission's Voluntary Self-Exclusion Program.

Responsible Gaming and Problem Gambling Resources

The Duel has compiled a list of websites and phone lines for official problem gambling resources for each state in which FanDuel Sportsbook operates. This full list can be found at this link.

Help is also available nation-wide through the National Council on Problem Gambling at 1-800-522-4700 or at GamblersAnonymous.org.

Persons under 21 are not permitted to engage in sports wagering.
