- ANYTHINGBOOK Game: The FanDuel Sportsbook will post one free prop bet for customers in Colorado to select across sports, pop culture, TV, and more. Customers who answer the question correctly will win $5 in site credit.
- Innovative Spirit: FanDuel was the first US Sportsbook to offer live streaming of sporting events inside a betting app and the first to offer Single Game Parlays, which is the ability to build a parlay utilizing betting markets from the same game.
- New TV Campaign: FanDuel will launch a brand new advertising campaign in Colorado featuring a never-before-seen TV commercial.
- FanDuel Group’s Account and Wallet Technology: FanDuel Group developed its own account and wallet technology in-house that is the backbone of the new operating system on the FanDuel Sportsbook app in Colorado.
