[Updated] FanDuel app & website down or not working? You are not alone
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on April 27, 2022) follows:
FanDuel is an American platform dedicated to sports betting. Through FanDuel users can participate in Fantasy Sports, casino games, and even horse racing bets.
The platform is especially popular with Fantasy Sports fans. Fantasy Sports are based on taking the role of team manager of a particular sport, having to form a good squad with the available resources.
Like other similar platforms, FanDuel allows users to execute multiple strategies on their bets to achieve the expected results.
That said, currently, FanDuel users are unable to access the platform as the servers are down or not working. As expected, the issue impacts both the website and the app.
FanDuel app and website currently down or not working
According to multiple reports, there is a crash in the FanDuel servers. Therefore, users are unable to access their profiles.
When users try to access the website or app, they only receive a ‘403 ERROR’ message.
Damn FanDuel servers must be down can’t log in on either phone.
@FanDuel_Support please finish helping me.. also the app is down.
@FanDuel are you guys down? Nobody can log in in Pennsylvania.
Being a betting site, a server crash is quite serious. After all, sporting events could soon be held in which users have money involved. The issue also prevents users from making new bets or plays.
DownDetector platform also reflects the crash on the servers:
There is no official acknowledgment on the issue from the FanDuel team yet. Therefore, affected users can only wait for official pronouncements in this regard.
We will update this story once there are new developments or when the platform is available again.
