As sports fans approach the middle of October, MLB is down to its “elite eight,” the 2021-22 NHL season is about to go on its power play, and the NFL season is approaching its second quarter. While it’s a great time to be a sports fan, it’s also a great time to be a bettor thanks to a DraftKings free $100 promo.
New DraftKings Sportsbook customers can get $100 in free bets for placing a moneyline wager of as little as a dollar on any MLB, NFL, or NHL game for a limited time. Given the terms of the promotion, this is almost like getting free money.
How to claim your DraftKings free $100 promo
This deal is only for first-time depositors at DraftKings. It ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on Oct. 17. To be eligible, you must make your bet from within any of the following states:
- New Jersey
- West Virginia
After you register your account, make your first deposit of at least $5. Then stake at least $1 dollar on the moneyline of any MLB, NFL, or NHL game. It must be a pre-game bet, meaning no live wagers.
You don’t need the team you backed with your moneyline bet to actually win the contest to get the $100, though. DraftKings makes it much simpler. You get the $100 in free bets if:
- You bet on an MLB game and either team records a hit in the game
- Either team scores a single point in the NFL game you wagered on
- You bet on an NHL game and either team scores a goal
Only your first bet counts toward this promo. It’s even more important to understand the terms associated with the promotional value.
What you can do with your $100 in free bets
After your bet settles, the sportsbook will credit your account with four $25 free bets. You can use those like real money in placing subsequent wagers.
Do note that they expire seven days after issuance, though. Also, if you use them to place any bets that win, you’ll only get the profit associated with those wagers.
Still, free bets open up a lot of possibilities. Will you hedge another real-money bet? Will you take a flier on a riskier line with nothing to lose? Like a team in Super Bowl odds? It’s up to you.
If you simply win one bet with -110 odds, that profit of $22.73 is a fantastic return on the dollar in real money you had to spend. This is a great way to get started with DraftKings.
