FanDuel Sportsbook in Oklahoma

Table of contents

When Daily Fantasy Sports was born in 2009, FanDuel was at the heart of a revolution. Taking the tactical skills and sporting know-how of regular, season-long fantasy games and compressing them into a single gameday, DFS transformed sports gaming. It also changed America’s relationship with sports betting. A decade later, FanDuel’s sportsbook emerged as one of the biggest in the country.

Players in Oklahoma know all about FanDuel’s DFS games. However, while we wait for the Sooner State to approve online gambling, and sports betting at any venue, the sportsbook may well be something new to many. Read on to find out more about gambling with FanDuel Sportsbook Oklahoma.

Is FanDuel legal in Oklahoma?

Yes and no. The OK online sportsbook, and its related casino, are not legal. At present, Oklahoma does not permit any form of online gambling, including sportsbooks, casinos or poker games. This means sports bettors are limited to offshore platforms, which are not regulated in the USA and can be risky to use.

However, FanDuel’s DFS site is up and running in OK. The company argues that Fantasy Sports are a game of skill, not a chance. Therefore, the game is not subject to Oklahoma’s strict gambling laws. The state rejected a bill that would officially legalize DFS games back in 2017. Despite this, the Attorney General shows no inclination to prevent FanDuel and its competitors from offering their services online in the state.

DFS has some similarities with sports betting. Players pay to enter competitions and can win cash prizes. Their success is determined by the performance of athletes in real-life sporting contests. However, it is not a traditional betting model. Instead, contestants are allocated a virtual budget. They use this to assemble a roster of athletes in their preferred sport. The real-life performance of those athletes in the next game generates points for fantasy players, and the top point scorer in each game day walks away with the prizes.

Is FanDuel sportsbook legal in Oklahoma?

Unfortunately, at the moment Oklahoma has no legal framework for online gambling of any sort. The state is also yet to legalize sports betting. As a result, FanDuel’s sportsbook cannot operate legally in OK. The company is limited to providing Daily Fantasy Sports games.

There are good reasons to hope that this can change. In 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court effectively the federal ban on sports betting when it struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act. That ruling was in no small part due to the efforts of FanDuel and other DFS providers. Since then, many states have embraced sports betting, both on and offline, and FanDuel has been quick to move into each of the new markets. There is no legal reason why Oklahoma cannot do the same, nor why FanDuel would not enter the OK sports betting market.

However, there is a stumbling block. Oklahoma currently has 137 tribal casinos. These enjoy a powerful market position with almost total control of gambling activity throughout the state. In 2022, lawmakers rejected a proposal to allow retail sports betting at those casinos. As a result, it is hard to see any immediate opportunity for online sportsbooks to open. The tribal casinos would be extremely reluctant to allow national online operators to compete with them. On a more optimistic note, things can change fast. And knowing how much Oklahoma profits from its existing gambling industry, it is likely that the state authorities will take an interest in generating additional revenues from online sportsbooks and casinos in the future.

Customer service at FanDuel Oklahoma

Often, the best way to judge the quality of any service is to look at how it responds when things go wrong. We can all understand that this isn’t a perfect world, and sometimes we run into problems or have questions about what is going on. It’s the response to those issues that singles out the market leaders from the also-rans.

FanDuel’s customer service is pretty solid. Customers can find it in the left-hand menu bar, albeit after a bit of scrolling. After clicking ‘Support’, players can choose between two options. They can consult the FAQ archive, or access live chat. The live chat option is also available by clicking on the blue ‘Talk to an expert box on the ‘Support’ page. Some may wonder why that box isn’t available on every page of the site, ensuring that help is never more than a click away.

The live chat is open 24/7 and is usually the fastest way to resolve a specific issue. Customers can also flag up problems by DMing the FanDuel Twitter or Facebook accounts. The support staff monitors these from 8 am to 12:30 am ET every day and you should have a response within an hour.

It is also possible to raise an issue via email by filling out the form at However, it takes at least 12 hours to get a response from this, and FanDuel itself recommends live chat in the first instance. Similarly, the voicemail box at 609-224-1019 is a slow way of getting attention from the support team.

FanDuel TV in Oklahoma

The popular TVG Network brought live sporting action, plus the hottest sports news, to FanDuel followers. In September 2022, TVG relaunched as FanDuel TV.

The new-look format has two channels. One is devoted to horse racing, while the other covers all sports with a special emphasis on football and basketball. The network promises more than 3,000 hours of live sporting action every year, including a wide range of pro basketball from around the world. It also boasts fresh coverage of all the latest sports news, interspersed with handy betting and fantasy sports tips.

FanDuel TV is accessible to all FanDuel customers via the FanDuel+ app. That means you can watch it anytime you like on your cellphone. In addition, it is accessible via several TV providers, including DirectTVstream, Hulu, and YouTubeTV. FanDuel TV is a competitor to VSiN, which provides a similar service to DraftKings. Thus, it represents a new chapter in the long-standing rivalry between FanDuel and DraftKings in both the sports betting and fantasy sports sectors.

Popular sports to bet on at FanDuel OK

The FanDuel betting site in OK offers markets for a wide range of sports. At last count, it had 19 different sports on the roster. As well as the major U.S. pro leagues, you can bet on relatively obscure games like cricket and Aussie Rules football. However, there are few surprises among the most popular sports.

  • Football. Wherever you are in the USA, football betting is a big deal. Even in states like Oklahoma, with no NFL team, sportsbooks do most of their business in wagers on gridiron action. That’s why FanDuel offers a huge range of football markets. The spread — backing a team to overcome a handicap — is the classic football bet. However, there can be great value in props, where bettors wager on how many yards a player might rush, or who will score the first TD in the game.
  • Basketball. Oklahoma City Thunder is the only major league team in the state. The NBA franchise arrived in 2008. Oklahoma had demonstrated its passion for basketball a few years earlier when it played temporary host to the New Orleans Hornets in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. After a slow start, the Thunder began to rumble in the 2010s, reaching the 2012 championship final amid a string of divisional titles.
  • Baseball. Oklahoma has never featured in the MLB, but it has seen its fair share of rising stars pass through the state. Oklahoma’s triple-A team, the Dodgers, is currently an affiliate of the LA Dodgers. In the past, the organization had links with the Astros, Rangers, Phillies, and Indians. Along the way, it has nurtured the talents of plenty of future MLB players.
  • Rugby. The USA does not have a big tradition in rugby, but for international sports fans, this game is a big deal. When the European powerhouses go head-to-head in the Six Nations, or Australia and New Zealand battle it out, these juddering confrontations make the world sit up and take notice. Team USA is steadily improving and will host the 2031 World Cup, which should generate more interest in the game across the country.
  • Golf. Resorts run by the tribal casinos dominate Oklahoma’s golfing scene. Thus, it’s no surprise that there is plenty of interest in betting on golf’s major tournaments. For fans of the sport, there is always action going on someplace. Top-class events like the U.S. Masters or the U.S. Open attract millions of dollars of wagers. These can be on everything from futures markets about major tournament winners to live betting on the outcome of the next hole.
