Fanatics Sportsbook Review

Fact Checked by Editorial Staff

Editor's Note: In August 2023, Fanatics purchased PointsBet USA. Rebranded as “PointsBet, a Fanatics Experience,” it now operates the sportsbook and casino in select states.

Before Fanatics, there was PointsBet, which was a unique legal U.S. sportsbook operator. The Australian company was one of the first foreign sportsbook operators to begin legal operations in the U.S. after PASPA was struck down in 2018.

The company started its U.S. operations in New Jersey and continues to expand into new states as sports betting becomes legal in more states.

Now that Fanatics took over, they are ready to be one of the market leaders. They are currently legal in Colorado, Michigan, Illinois, Connecticut, North Carolina, Kentucky, Indiana, Iowa and New Jersey and will likely be available in more states soon.

Fanatics App Review

Fanatics Sportsbook offers a mobile app that is available for download on both Android and iOS. The app for both operating systems is fast, intuitive, and easy to navigate. The standout speed of the app makes it one of the best for live betting.

The home page on the app features large banners with current Fanatics promos. Below the promo section is a menu with featured events, live games, along with the games that are set to begin next.

Odds on the Fanatics app are available for anyone to see. Players must be in a state where Fanatics is legal to place a wager.

Fanatics Pros

There are many things that are great with this sportsbook:

  • A large wagering menu, good odds, promos, and unique betting options.
  • The app is one of the fastest and easier sportsbook applications anywhere in the US. The speed of the app is especially useful for live betting.

Fanatics Cons

As with any betting site and app, there are things we think can be improved.

While the app is fast and easy to navigate, it lacks the live streams of games available elsewhere. This may not be that big of a deal but it’s something that would improve the mobile experience.
