Fanatics Betting and Gaming has expanded its reach to the state of Iowa with the launch of the Fanatics Sportsbook. This move comes just a few weeks after the company entered the Pennsylvanian market, marking its twelfth state in which the sportsbook is now live.
The expansion to Iowa was made possible through the recent acquisition of PointsBet’s US business. As a result, former PointsBet customers will be seamlessly migrated to the new Fanatics Sportsbook app, retaining their account details and balances. Additionally, the sportsbook at Catfish Bend Casino in Burlington will undergo a name and management change as part of the transition.
In an effort to promote responsible gambling, Fanatics Betting and Gaming is offering customers access to tools to manage their time and spending while using the sportsbook. This includes round-the-clock customer support for any inquiries or assistance.
The Fanatics Sportsbook app boasts a range of exciting features for players, including a focus on mobile users and the ability to earn up to 5% of their bets back in FanCash. This digital currency can be used for bonus bets or on Fanatics.com. Customers can also benefit from the Discover feed, offering them key information about marquee games, stats, and trending bets. Additionally, the sportsbook’s search functionality is said to be industry-leading, providing users with a variety of useful features.
In the midst of this expansion, Michael Z. Hermalyn, the president of Fanatics VIP, has reportedly filed a lawsuit against his former employer, DraftKings.
The launch of the Fanatics Sportsbook in Iowa is set to provide players and visitors in the state with an exciting and diverse betting experience, further cementing Fanatics Betting and Gaming’s position in the US market.
