Is FanDuel Legal in Canada? | Latest Updates and Alternatives

While FanDuel is 100% legal and available in Ontario, you can’t play at FanDuel from other provinces like British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec, Manitoba, etc.

This is because these provinces do not have an open regulated market for private operators, and FanDuel isn’t available in unregulated Canadian markets.

If you are outside of Ontario you cannot deposit funds, place new wagers, or cash out any live wagers.

However, some equally good (if not better) alternatives allow you to do all of the above.

We will list these alternatives based on factors like Odds, Betting Markets, Live Streams, Payment Modes, Slots, and Live Casinos.

Best FanDuel Alternatives In terms of:

To help determine the right alternative regarding odds, we compared the odds for a couple of NHL and NBA matches.

Here’s what you need to know.

NHL odds

I’ll start with the match between the Florida Panthers and Carolina Hurricanes.

FanDuelBet99bet365Sports Interaction
Florida Panthers2.002.001.951.95
Carolina Hurricanes1.831.831.861.87
The highest odds are marked in bold.

In the above match, all sportsbooks have Carlina Hurricanes as the favourites, while the Florida Panthers are the underdogs.

Bet99 and FanDuel have the highest odds for the underdogs, while Sports Interaction is the ideal sportsbook to bet on the favourites.

Next, I’ll compare the match between the Washington Capitals and the Tampa Bay Lightning.

FanDuelBet99bet365Sports Interaction
Washington Capitals2.682.652.652.65
Tampa Bay Lightning1.491.501.501.50
The highest odds are marked in bold.

Tampa Bay is the favourite for the above match, with Bet99, bet365, and Sports Interaction offering the best odds.

However, for the underdogs, FanDuel has the highest odds.

NBA Odds

Since the LA Lakers are one of the most popular teams, we had to start with them.

FanDuelBet99bet365Sports Interaction
LA Lakers2.942.802.852.80
Golden State Warriors1.431.451.441.45
The highest odds are marked in bold.

If you agree with the sportsbooks that the Golden State Warriors are favourites to win and you want to bet on them, then Bet99 and Sports Interaction have the highest odds.

On the other hand, FanDuel has the highest odds for the underdogs (LA Lakers).

FanDuelBet99bet365Sports Interaction
Charlotte Hornets4.704.504.754.75
Utah Jazz1.211.221.201.20
The highest odds are marked in bold.

In most cases, we see Bet99 have either better odds or odds at par with FanDuel or others for the favourites.

This makes them an excellent alternative to FanDuel if you want to bet on the favourites.

While FanDuel usually seems to have the highest odds for the underdogs, there have been instances where bet365 outdid them (for example, the match between Charlotte Hornets and Utah Jazz).

This makes them a good alternative if you want to bet on the underdogs.

Note: Odds are true at the time of writing and are subject to change closer to the matchday.

All sportsbooks have similar markets. However, Bet99 usually ups the ante closer to important cup finals and events like the Super Bowl.

We have been noticing this trend since 2023, making them our number-one pick if you are looking for unique betting markets.

For example, three days before the 2024 Super Bowl, Bet99 had some unique markets, like the MVP Specials.

We did not find these markets on bet365, Sports Interaction, Betway or FanDuel.

They sprung a surprise with similar markets in 2023 as well during the Super Bowl and the Stanley Cup.

So yes, regarding betting markets, Bet99 is a standout.

FanDuel never had classic live streaming for Canadians.

If you want to watch live using your FanDuel account, you must download the FanDuel+ app on your Apple TV, Amazon TV, and Roku.

This gives you access to FanDuel TV.

And after all that, FanDuel TV only streams select matches.

It’s quite a hassle to watch just a few matches, right?

If you want a more classic live stream, bet365 is our preferred alternative to FanDuel.

The Watch and Bet feature on bet365 allows you to change and place bets without interrupting your live stream (no switching tabs or windows anymore).

Enjoy live stream on your phone or desktop.

All controls for betting are docked on the side and can be hidden when you are done with placing bets.

Furthermore, accessing the live stream on bet365 is super easy. You’ll find the live stream icon right next to the matches that have live streams available.

Regarding availability, bet365 has the most live streams available compared to FanDuel, Bet99, Betway, or Sports Interaction.

You’ll find streams for most of the NBA, NHL, NFL, CFL, MLS, Tennis, EPL, and Champions League matches.

For Canadians, FanDuel offers the following payment modes.

  • Online Banking
  • Interac
  • PayPal
  • Credit Card
  • Debit Card

While these are trusted and secure payment modes, there were fewer options than Sports Interaction.

On Sports Interaction, you can find not only Visa, Mastercard, Interac e-Transfer, and Online Banking but also Paysafecard and Apple Pay.

If you are from outside Ontario, you also have InstaDebit as a payment option.

This is the most number of payment modes we have come across at a sportsbook.

So yes, if you are looking for more options regarding payment modes, Sports Interaction is the ideal alternative to FanDuel.

While FanDuel has more slots and jackpots than Bet99 and bet365, Sports Interaction and PlayOJO are well ahead (PlayOJO being the standout).

FanDuel has around 1000 slots, while Sports Interaction offers 1200+ slots.

To top it off, you can choose from a whopping 3200+ slots on PlayOJO.

Not only that but finding your favourite slots is much easier on PlayOJO.

That’s because they have filters to sort games by volatility and providers.

PlayOJO has multiple filters, such as providers and volatility.
PlayOJO has multiple filters, such as providers and volatility.

This allows you to play slots with volatility ranging from high to medium, medium-high, and low.

Furthermore, you can also find slots based on providers.

While FanDuel also has slots from top providers, you cannot filter them based on the providers.

Thus, you’d have to search it using the search bar if you wanted to play slots by NetEnt (considering you know the names of the games).

Furthermore, PlayOJO also has free-to-play games, while FanDuel doesn’t

So, if you want a comprehensive casino that understands user needs better and makes it easy to find and play games, PlayOJO is the ideal alternative.

PlayOJO, Bet99, and Leovegas stand out for us regarding live casinos.

PlayOJO remains our top pick as their site is the most user-friendly, with all the filters, categories, etc.

Not only do they have more live casino games than FanDuel, they also have more payment options.

However, if you are here for specific games like Blackjack or Roulette, you might also want to consider Bet99 and Leovegas.

Here’s why.

Bet99 has the most number of blackjack games.

You can choose from 100+ blackjack games from top providers like Evolution and Ezugi.

They also have an excellent Game Show section where you’ll find popular games like Monopoly and even unique games like Andar Bahar and Sic Bo.

However, Bet99 does not give you filters either.

If you want to play roulette, Leovegas gives you the most options and filters to show games from specific providers.

FanDuel also has a good live casino. However, it does not offer the same game variety as the casinos mentioned above, nor does it provide relevant filters.
