The new FanDuel sports betting app is not available in California. You can still bet via your mobile phone or desktop and claim up to a 150% bonus hereJazz Sports (established in 1994) does not report your winnings.  18 and up welcome.

Will the FanDuel Sports Betting App Be Available to Those in California?

Not any time soon. The tribal compacts have their own agendas and there has been fighting between them with unsuccessful efforts to allow online poker in the state over the past decade.

Disadvantages to Using the FanDuel Sports Betting App

Even as a California resident, you can still place real money bets on the FanDuel app, but only when visiting a handful of states including New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

There are a number of flights between Newark and San Francisco and LAX daily so plenty of folks from California are coming to New Jersey in any given week.  The same is true for Philadelphia.

The FanDuel sports betting app went live in New Jersey during the last days of August 2018.  The FanDuel sportsbook app went live in PA the summer of 2019. Folks who wish to open a betting account may do so from outside the state but will be unable to bet until they are within New Jersey's borders, this includes Newark International Airport, or Pennsylvania's borders.  The PA app is only available on Android and that will likely be the case in New Jersey come September.  

While those 18 or older can play with offshore sportsbooks, FanDuel and its New Jersey-based counterparts require users to be at least 21 in order to place a bet.
