A former Chief Brand Officer for Canadian media giant Rogers Communications, Hooper brings a level of expertise that will help FanDuel become a prominent betting site in the Great White North.
Canada’s most populous province will be at the forefront of legalized single-game sports betting, as Ontario’s 14 million residents make up the largest market in the country.
The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) will oversee official rules and regulatory requirements, inviting commercial sportsbooks to enter the market provided they pay a traditional tax on their gross revenue. They were the first province to signal their desire to establish an open market like this.
Ontario already offered parlay betting through the PROLINE+ platform before the legalization of Bill C-218. The province also offers DFS platforms from major providers like FanDuel and DraftKings.
The patient sports bettors in Ontario are hungry for more wagering types. Fans in the Canadian market will have numerous ways to get closer to the action in their favourite games when single-game betting gets underway.
FanDuel Canada Welcome Offers
FanDuel Sportsbook is expected to bring their best welcome offer to Canada—a risk-free bet promo worth up to $1,000 in site credit.
Risk-free bets are perfect for new sports bettors, and there’s sure to be a lot of rookies in Canada.
FanDuel will refund your first bet if it happens to lose. You won’t get anything special if your first wager is a winner, but you can bet with confidence knowing you’ve got nothing to lose!
FanDuel New User Promo – $1,000 Risk-Free Bet
Here’s how the sign-up offer from FanDuel works:
- Complete the registration process with the FanDuel Sportsbook
- Make the first deposit to your newly created FanDuel account
- Place your first bet up to $1,000
- FanDuel will refund your first wager with site credit if it happens to lose
- Use the bonus funds to place other bets with FanDuel Canada
Canadian sports bettors should be aware this risk-free bet promo comes with a playthrough requirement, also referred to as a rollover requirement. This means you need to use any site credit in full on other wagers before collecting the funds as real money.
Playthrough requirements are a standard request from online sportsbooks, and you’ll encounter them with other betting sites as well. The number of playthroughs required before you receive the payouts can differ, but FanDuel only asks for one rollover—which is a fair deal to say the least.
