The Office of Lottery and Gaming (OLG) has announced that FanDuel is the new sports wagering subcontractor for Intralot, Inc., OLG’s lottery and sports wagering system vendor.

Under this agreement, residents of Washington, D.C. will gain access to FanDuel’s sports wagering app, which is the market leader nationally, as well as its website and retail platforms.

“FanDuel’s industry-leading offering will ensure that the District maximizes tax revenue under its existing contracts this year while delivering a best-in-class experience for 18+ residents,” said Frank Suarez, Executive Director of OLG.

FanDuel’s mobile sports wagering platform will be available to both residents and visitors inside the geographic boundaries of the District of Columbia starting this spring. The new partnership will bring immediate financial benefit to the District, including an initial $5M fee payable by Intralot within the current fiscal year. The initial fee alone guarantees a significant revenue increase from sports wagering for the District in 2024. 

OLG will maintain its strong commitment to responsible gaming oversight. All users will now have access to FanDuel’s industry-leading problem gambling prevention, education, and advocacy resources. The FanDuel platform offers built-in app safeguards, allowing customers to set deposits, wagers, and time limits for their play.
