FanDuel issues offshore betting warning email to partners

FanDuel Sportsbook has sent an email to its partners warning them not to promote offshore or unlicensed sports betting sites.

The email read: “Please be advised that FanDuel considers the promotion of offshore gambling websites as promotion of illegal activities.

“As such, FanDuel will take steps to monitor your site to ensure it complies with FanDuel’s terms and conditions, and will take appropriate actions including, but not limited to, terminating your participation in the FanDuel Affiliate Program if you fail to comply with the terms and conditions.

“By continuing to participate in the FanDuel Affiliate Program, you represent and warrant that your site does not currently promote any illegal activities, including, but not limited to, offshore gambling.”

FanDuel has moved quickly since the repeal of PASPA to establish a foothold in US sports betting, going as far as merging with UK bookmaker Paddy Power Betfair and launching gambling-focused TV shows

Matt King, FanDuel CEO, said the firm would be “investing heavily in content”, with the programmes being added to the company’s TVG and TVG2 cable networks, which are currently devoted to horse racing, as well as to digital channels the company operates.

“There’s a lot of different formats we can distribute through and a lot of different channels,” he added.
