Fanatics launches sportsbook app in West Virginia; online casino to follow

November 17, 2023

The Fanatics app will also accept any West Virginia-based player's login credentials from a previous PointsBet account.

Fanatics Betting and Gaming has launched its online sportsbook in West Virginia, bringing both an iOS and Android betting experience to those in the Mountain State. The company’s new online casino will also begin a pilot program in the state, integrated within the sportsbook app.

The Fanatics online casino will include roulette, slots, blackjack and an exclusive Fanatics Blackjack game that will be available only to Fanatics Sportsbook users. More games are planned for future launches.

Players will also have access to responsible gaming tools, a help center and a chat experience with 24/7 coverage. Sportsbook customers have the potential to earn 5% back in FanCash on their bets, which can be used to purchase licensed sports team merchandise from Fanatics’ apparel side of its business, as well as converted into bonus bets.

Fan Cash can be earned on: straight bets and odds boost (at a rate of 1% back), parlay bets (at a rate of 3% back) and Same Game Parlay bets (at a rate of 5%). The Fanatics Sportsbook includes a Discover page that will show players trending bets, other promos and rewards and marquee games.

Currently, Fanatics is working on personalizing each sportsbook customer’s Discover page, so that favorite teams, sports and markets appear more easily.

Fanatics’ acquisition of PointsBet’s US operations means that West Virginia players will be privy to a unique automatic migration of each player’s username, password, account balance, rewards points and responsible gaming data from a previous PointsBet account.

Players will be able to download the Fanatics Sportsbook app, and log in using the same email and password they once used to login with PointsBet.

Michael Hershman, CEO of the Soloviev Group, joins Tim Poole on the Huddle to put forward his case that the Freedom Plaza is the way to go for one of New York's casino licences. He fields a variety of questions - not shying away from any of them - on why 'myths' about casinos and a fear of the unknown should be dispelled, as well as acknowledging the strength of rival bids and discussing opposition to the project.
