FanDuel DraftKings merger

BREAKING: FanDuel DraftKings Merger Cancelled

What’s Going On With the FanDuel and DraftKings Merger?

You might have heard about some massive news in the world of DFS that came about lately: the proposed merger of FanDuel and DraftKings. These two behemoths have been slogging it out in the DFS ring since they both came onto the scene in 2009 and 2012 respectively. Since then, it has looked as if DraftKings was taking the lead in the battle for DFS dominance—its new signups far outweighed those of FanDuel.

Yet, the financial figures tell a different story. In spite of DraftKings’s dominance, and its seeming ubiquity in the US, the company has actually lost huge amounts of money over the past few years. This could be a possible explanation for the merger between the two companies. But what would a merger mean for UK players, and which company would come out on top? Will it even go ahead? We’ve got your DFS fix at DailyFantasyUK.
