Fanduel is one of the most popular sports betting platforms out there. In US states where sports gambling is legal such as Indiana, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, players can sign up on the app and bet on several sports.
However, as good and popular as the app, like everything tech, does face issues from time to time. In this article, we’re examining nine possible reasons and fixes if Fanduel app is not working.
Is Fanduel legal in your state?
The first thing you should check is if Fanduel is legal in your state. While the app is available to download and use in more US states than most of its competition, there are still states where you can’t use Fanduel. Users can’t get around location restrictions regarding Fanduel either.
Currently, Fanduel is legal in the following US states:
- New Jersey
- West Virginia
Check your internet connection
A good and stable internet connection is required to be able to use Fanduel without problems. If you’re on WiFi, check to make sure that you have good signal strength and an active internet connection. If you’re on mobile data, make sure that you’ve got good network coverage and that mobile data is enabled.
Check if Fanduel is down
At times, the entire Fanduel service, including the site and the app, can be down due to technical difficulties or overload. If Fanduel is going through server difficulties, all you can do is sit back and wait until they resolve the issue on their end. You can check their server status at Downdetector or other similar websites.
Check for updates
If there’s a bug in the Fanduel app, chances are the developers are either working on a fix or have already released a patch addressing the issue. Check to see if you’ve got any updates for the app and if there are, install them and try again.
Try the mobile site
There’s a mobile version of the Fanduel site that you can try out if the app isn’t working. If you can logging and bet on the mobile site, the issue is with the app itself, in which case you should either look for an update or reinstall the app altogether.

Reinstall the app
Another common fix to most app problems, reinstalling, can help resolve a bunch of seemingly random issues if you’re certain that the issue is with the app and not with any other factors mentioned in this article. Try deleting the app and reinstalling it to see if that resolves your issue.
Don’t use a VPN
If you’re using a VPN with the app, chances are you won’t be able to make it past the login screen. As we’ve mentioned before, you can’t get around the app’s geolocation restrictions; hence, using a VPN will only complicate your problems. Try disabling your VPN and check again.
Check your betting account for funds
Before you start betting on the app, you need to add funds to your betting account. If you have a DFS and betting account with Fanduel, all your funds might be in your DFS account and not in the betting one. Make sure your betting account has enough funds in it before you proceed.
Fanduel not working on Apple Watch
This issue arises by not updating your devices with the latest iOS or watchOS updates. Try updating your devices to the latest update available, restart your devices, and the app should work just fine.
