Online sports betting in Maryland will be live today between 2 and 10 p.m. ET. This is for a controlled demonstration period that will test the servers of upcoming mobile apps. FanDuel Sportsbook Maryland is among those apps that will begin accepting bets today. Fans can download the FanDuel app and even capitalize on $100 in free bets with the pre-live promo here.
Maryland Welcomes FanDuel
The FanDuel Sportsbook app can be downloaded right now and fans have already begun making their accounts. Locals can create their accounts and accept all pre-live offers available before the 2 p.m. soft launch commences.
The soft launch will be in effect for the eight-hour window. During that period, all wagers will be available to Marylanders. The goal of the soft launch is to test the systems of the sportsbook within the Old Line. Operators wish to ensure that sportsbooks servers are stable and that accounts are secure in time for the Wednesday launch.
FanDuel Sportsbook Maryland will keep all accounts on file even after the demonstration period has commenced. All futures bets will also be honored and be available once the market fully launches. Following 10 p.m., however, no betting will be permitted until Wednesday’s launch.
How Locals Can Capitalize On FanDuel During Soft Launch
The best way for locals to fully capitalize on betting today during the soft launch is through the promotional offers at FanDuel. The titular sportsbook is offering up to $1,145 in pre-live promotions in celebration of the launch.
Fans can accept these offers today and utilize the free bets and deposit matches during the soft launch period. There is no need to wait until Wednesday as FanDuel is accepting this now. It’s not just FanDuel either, as all active today during the soft launch have similar offers.
SWARC was aiming to be live in time for Thanksgiving and now fans can wager just days before Turkey Day. Seven of the 10 approved sportsbooks will be available during the soft launch.
Marylanders should download FanDuel and all other sportsbook apps and get ready to wager today.
