FanDuel announced Tuesday the official launch of its branded, standalone FanDuel Casino product in New Jersey for three platforms — iOS, Android and desktop.

Initially offered within the FanDuel Sportsbook app in New Jersey, the addition of its standalone NJ online casino product means users living in, or visiting, New Jersey can access it.

The FanDuel Casino app will feature casino games like blackjack, roulette, poker and slots. It will still be available within the FanDuel Sportsbook app, according to a news release.

New NJ casino players, who can play their first day risk-free up to $1,000, can either signup for a casino account or use their existing FanDuel fantasy or sportsbook account to log in and play, the release said.

Currently, FanDuel Casino is available in Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The company also announced Tuesday that FanDuel Casino has added live dealer blackjack, roulette and baccarat games in Michigan.
