Fubo has become a household name for live streaming of top-tier sporting events, and now the company is ready to throw its proverbial hat into the ring by joining the U.S. online sports betting business.
The brand’s first official foray in the industry came in the state of Iowa, where they initially launched in November 2021, thanks to its partnership with land-based Casino Queen in Marquette. Arizona became the second state in in December 2021, and now they are officially off to the races. Fubo Sportsbook seems poised to be come one of the more active, exciting brands in betting today.
The brand is known for its high-quality live streaming TV service of major sports leagues including events licensed by the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, and Major League Soccer (MLS). There’s plenty of chatter about integrating live, in-game viewing with legal online sports betting, but Fubo Sportsbook appears properly positioned to be one of the few brands that could indeed bring its customers a unique service that encompasses both of these elements — within the same in-house brand.
Follow along below as we walk you through the entire Fubo Sportsbook platform, including what betting markets and wager types are available, top promotions, age and geolocation prerequisites, as well as how to perform deposits and withdrawals while using Fubo Sportsbook.
Let’s not bury the lead, Fubo Sportsbook has sportsbook bonuses that are both unique and competitive in the online sports betting space. There are two primary components that we’ll break down in depth: a $1K risk-free bet… and a free month of FuboTV!
|Fubo Sportsbook Promo Code||HANDLE|
|Fubo Sportsbook Welcome Bonus||$1000 Risk-Free Bet|
|Fubo Sportsbook Extra||1 Month Free FuboTV|
|Platforms||Desktop + iOS App (No Android - for now)|
Moving forward, Fubo Sportsbook has agreed to a partnership with The Cordish Companies that will provide access to the state of Pennsylvania. The Cordish Companies own and operate both Live! Casino resorts in both Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Similarly, Fubo Sportsbook is also on it way to both Indiana and New Jersey after making a deal with Caesars.
Risk-free bet’s aren’t the most ground breaking offer in the sports betting world, but they are valuable. They’re simple to understand and take advantage of. With Fubo, you simply need to register, place a bet, and if you lose the wager, Fubo has your back. They’ll ship you a bonus credit equal to the amount of that first bet so you get back to square one.
Bonuses will be credited within 48 hours, so be patient if it doesn’t show up right away. Beyond that, the only caveat is that you must use the bonus credits to actually bet on sports. They’re not immediately withdraw-able, so you have to put them in play within 30 days of receipt. Only initial bets with odds of -200 or greater will qualify, maximum bonus credit for this offer is $1,000. For example, if you bet $1,500 and lose, you will only receive a bonus credit of $1,000.
Here’s where Fubo Sportsbook really gets to flex its muscle. In addition to offering the risk-free bet above, they’re also packaging in a free month of their premium streaming service, FuboTV. You can load the FuboTV app on to your phone, computer, appleTV, etc. and watch real, live TV on hundreds of channels. Fubo typically offers customers a one week free trial, but by registering for Fubo Sportsbook you can claim a full month – a $65 value. Make some bets and watch them, too!
Fubo Sportsbook is new, but expanding fast. Due to the fact that sports betting in the United States is regulated at the state level, the company is rolling out state by state as they agree to partnerships and access deals. The following are the states that currently have access to Fubo Sportsbook. If you don’t see your state listed, stay tuned – there’s a chance that Fubo is coming to your area soon.
|Arizona||Ak-Chin Indian Community||Dec. 20, 2021|
|Iowa||Casino Queen Marquette||Nov. 4, 2021|
|Indiana||Partnership agreed with Caesars||Coming Soon|
|New Jersey||Partnership agreed with Caesars||Coming Soon|
|Pennsylvania||The Cordish Companies||Coming Soon|
In order to provide a secure experience for legal sports bettors in the U.S. state-by-state market, all customers at Fubo Sportsbook will be required to enter the following information upon signing up for a real money sports betting account:
Aside from this, customers will be required to be physically located within the actual state that licenses Fubo Sportsbook when placing real money wagers. Check the table above for a full list of eligible states.
So, for example, if you want to bet in the state of Arizona you can do so with Fubo Sportsbook from anywhere within state lines. You don’t have to be a resident, and you don’t have to create your account while in the state – you just need to have your two feet planted in the AZ soil to finalize a wager.
Generally speaking, across the United States the legal age to bet on sports is 21 years and up. There are a handful of states that have lowered the bar to just 18, but Fubo is not currently active in any of them. You’ll need to be 21 – and able to prove it – to bet on Fubo Sportsbook.
While they’re new to sports betting, their platform doesn’t show it. Fubo Sportsbook offers a nice, clean interface that provides users with easy access to all of their favorite markets. While using the desktop site, eyes are first drawn to the large promotional banner spread out along the top of the page. This usually displays the welcome offer or other available promos. Just below you can easily scroll between the most popular sports to bet on, and just below that it will show you the top games within that sport.
The rest of the business is taken care of on the wings of the page. Off to the left you’ve got a menu of popular sports and a quick link to ‘Live Games’. As a ‘Live’ TV specialist, Fubo Sportsbook is particularly adept at handling your live betting needs. Off on the right wing of the website is the betslip. You can easily toggle it between your open wagers and the current slip you’re working with, and placing a bet is a snap. Just enter your desired stake, the payout and pricing is clearly displayed, and the bright blue button ‘Place Bet’ button is a joy to press.
With years of experience running their mobile TV streaming service, it should come as no surprise that Fubo knows its way around an app. The Fubo Sportsbook sports betting mobile app is a great product. It has the basics of what you need, plus some unique design features that really stand out.
Registration can be done completely from the mobile app. After you’ve downloaded it, load up the app, and select your state from the drop down at the top of the screen. Next, you’ll be prompted through a normal sign up structure that we detailed above. Once you’ve actually landed on the betting homepage it’s pretty business-forward. There aren’t a ton of unnecessary banners or advertisements. It’s offers up the most interesting games to bet on, front and center, no frill. The dark theme is easy on the eyes with contrasting colors of orange and blue, which overall just works.
The betslip (seen below on the right), is actually oversized and makes it so there is no chance of confusion when placing a bet. You know how much you’re risking, and how much you stand to win. Simply tapping on any item will add it to the slip, allowing the user to build out more complex wagers.
One fo the more unique features is the ‘On TV’ button that appears along the top, which allows you to see watch games with your FuboTV subscription, and also view bets that correlate. It’s a really cool option to have that not man others can match.
The legal U.S. online sportsbook market has an impressive variety of sports to place real money wagers on, and Fubo Sportsbook is no different. Look for Fubo Gaming to offer the following betting markets (sports) in each state of operation.
Football – Basketball – Baseball – Ice Hockey – Soccer – Golf – Tennis – Cycling – Badminton – Motorsports – Boxing – Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) – Cricket – Aussie Rules – Track & Field – Winter Sports – Lacrosse – Table Tennis – esports – Rugby – Curling – Swimming – Handball – Darts – Volleyball (plus other seasonal sporting events)
Fubo Sportsbook offers just about every wager type under the sun:
Moneyline – Totals (Over/Under) – Live Betting (In-Game) – Point Spreads – Teasers – Parlays – Promotional Odds Boosts – Promotional Risk-Free Wagers – Promotional Free Bets – Straight Bets – Doubles and Triples (System Bets) – Futures – Odd/Even – Correct Score – Period And Half Betting
As a relatively new sports betting operator, we were impressed with the arsenal that Fubo came out of the gate with for both deposits and withdrawals. It’s not the best, but the list of options is only going to get larger and more expansive with time. Choices include:
Notably, only ACH transfers and the Play+ option are supported for withdrawals. It’s not unusual though to have more deposit options than withdrawals… and again, we expect both lists to grow as demand increases and the betting platform improves.
FuboTV is available throughout the United States and U.S. territories as a premium live streaming TV service. This includes real time transmissions of popular sports leagues such as the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, and MLS. Some programming is also available in Canada and Spain, although the service is more limited in those countries at this time.
FuboTV’s live sports streaming service typically costs between $65 and $80 (plus tax) per month depending on the plan, and allows perks such as “unlimited screens” as well as up to 1,000 hours of DVR playback with the more expensive plans.
FuboTV carries sports games from a multitude of networks CBS, FOX, NBC, and ABC affiliate stations throughout the United States in order to broadcast the games in real time as they occur, which integrates perfectly with Fubo Sportsbook.
The Fubo Sportsbook app can pair up with your FuboTV app and provide real time betting information on the games you’re watching, live, as they play out. With Fubo you can watch a game and bet on it, all while staying in-house.
The retail version of Fubo Sportsbook is already operational at the Casino Queen in Marquette, Iowa. The riverboat casino is situated along the Mississippi River, and is comprised of three decks plus a two-floor pavilion that offers gaming and amenities that patrons have come to expect from land-based casinos.
Those who would like to stay after they play (the Queen Casino closes at 2:00AM during the week and at 4:00AM on the weekends) are encouraged to lodge at one of two locations in Marquette: the Cobblestone Inn or Frontier Motel.
Aside from Iowa, Fubo has market access in a number of other states but has yet to put forward retail betting options. For example, in Arizona, Fubo Sportsbook is partnered with the Ak-Chin Indian Community but does not have a branded retail sportsbook in the state.
Fubo Sportsbook is here, and they’re here to stay. Simply put, no other online sports betting provider in the marketplace can match the brand’s ability to integrate its sports betting service directly into its live TV set up. While the list of active states is currently small, it will grow – and fast. We anticipate that Fubo Sportsbook will be one of the more active brands in the U.S. iGaming industry in years to come. Their overall sports betting product is nothing short of elite. It’s got everything you have to have, plus a number of extras that push it over the top.
