Fanatics Holdings, a global digital sports platform, has announced the launch of its sportsbook in the regulated gambling market of West Virginia. The company’s subsidiary, Fanatics Betting and Gaming, rolled out the new sportsbook with the promise of offering supreme entertainment and experiences for sports fans and bettors in the state.
The launch of the Fanatics Sportsbook in West Virginia comes after the company confirmed the acquisition of the US assets of PointsBet earlier this year. This acquisition helped strengthen the operator’s presence in the country, and Fanatics Betting and Gaming confirmed its plans to migrate PointsBet’s customers to its new Fanatics Sportsbook mobile app.
As a result of the launch, customers in West Virginia who previously had an account with PointsBet can now use the same credentials to access the new Fanatics Sportsbook. This allows them to use their username, password, account balance, as well as settings related to responsible gambling and rewards points when accessing the betting app.
The company also announced a partnership with Paysafe, a leading payments specialist, earlier this week. This collaboration allows Fanatics to tap into Paysafe’s traditional card payments and alternative payment methods.
The new Fanatics Sportsbook offers a range of exciting features for sports fans and bettors in West Virginia. The mobile app was built natively on Android and iOS, ensuring high speed, quality services, and an intuitive design. It also boasts an engaging loyalty program called FanCash – The Currency of Sport, which allows for dollar-for-dollar conversions and access to sports merchandise.
Additionally, customers using the Fanatics Sportsbook have access to an industry-leading search feature, powered by Genius Sports Limited, that offers search history and the ability to search via alias/synonyms for events, markets, and leagues. The sportsbook also offers live streaming with BetVision, allowing customers to access live streaming and place wagers through the same app.
The sportsbook also features personalization, with trending bets, special promotions, and rewards that cater to the profile of each individual bettor. Overall, the launch of the Fanatics Sportsbook in West Virginia promises to provide a top-notch and rewarding betting experience for sports enthusiasts in the state.
