DraftKings Sportsbook New Jersey NFL Week 1 Promos

NFL fans in New Jersey who have yet to make a DraftKings Sportsbook account are in luck.

In advance of the always highly anticipated Week 1, TheLines has partnered with DraftKings Sportsbook to offer our readers this exclusive special offer to new customers:

  • Bet $1 on any Week 1 game and receive $200, instantly credited by DraftKings. CLAIM NOW

That offer comes in addition to the regular DraftKings Sportsbook welcome offers. New users will also get $50 free bet upon first deposit and 20% deposit match up to $1,000.

Plus, DK Sportsbook has listed a one-time boost on Tampa Bay in the NFL season opener. All users who opt in can get Bucs +73 at even money for a $50 wager. That’s plain old free money you don’t want to miss.

Combine all of these offers and you can get $1,300 in added value from DraftKings Sportsbook by signing up for a new account today.

NFL Wild Cards

In addition to that, right up until the start of the season, DraftKings has revealed a sweepstakes-style contest called “NFL Wild Cards.” Both new and existing users can take advantage of this one.

Users receive randomized props in the form of cards. Should their prop hit, the user gets prizes and rewards. Example from their website: “If J. Allen Throws For At Least 300 Yards in Week 1, you receive $5 DK Dollars.”

The first Wild Card is free. Users can collect six Wild Cards until Sept. 13. A second Wild Card is obtained when a user places $100 in wagers or Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) entries. Wild Card No. 3 comes at the $300 mark, No. 4 at the $1,000 mark, No. 5 at $2,500, and No. 6 at $5,000.

BetMGM New Jersey NFL Week 1 Promos

BetMGM has up to $1,000 worth of free bets to offer new users signing up for their leading online betting app. CLAIM NOW

New customers who register from qualifying states — NJ included — can use the promo code PLAYBONUS when signing up and making their first deposit through our links. Once they do, they are eligible for up o a $1,000 risk-free bet with BetMGM. Essentially, BetMGM will award these users with a site credit matching their first bet if the selected bet grades out as a loss.

  • Bets greater than or equal to $50: Five free bets awarded at 20% of original bet value
  • Bets less than $50: One free bet awarded that matches original bet value

As always with free bets, terms and conditions apply, so be sure to read through BetMGM’s house rules on free bets before formulating your strategy.

Caesars New Jersey NFL Week 1 Promos

Much like their competitors BetMGM, Caesars Sportsbook has dangled a $5,000 free bet as a carrot to welcome new users. CLAIM NOW

New customers who register from qualifying states — including NJ — can use the promo code LEGALRF when signing up and making their first deposit. Once they do, they get up a $5,000 risk-free bet with Caesars. Essentially, Caesars will award these users with a site credit matching their first bet.

Again, take a good look at the terms and conditions.

Additional Promos: Extra Futures Payouts And Boosts

That’s not all from Caesars. In the book’s continued aim to treat its customers like emperors, they offer extra futures payouts and promotional odds boosts. They’re even giving away free jerseys from the official league shop.

For the Super Futures:

  • Bet at least $50 on a Super Bowl winner and get a FREE $5 bet for every regular season win they have during the season

Needless to say, fairly obvious teams at the top of the futures board like Kansas City and Tampa Bay should net the most value there.

As for the boosts, here are a few NFL ones currently listed by Caesars New Jersey:

For the jerseys:

  • During September, place at least $100 in NFL wagers (markets no shorter than -200) and receive a $150 digital gift card towards a jersey at official NFL shop

More Caesars Sportsbook New Jersey NFL Week 1 promos will surely be added as the season draws nearer.

FanDuel Sportsbook New Jersey NFL Week 1 Promos

FanDuel Sportsbook is also rolling out the red carpet for new users in New Jersey. If you sign up by clicking here then make your first deposit, FD Sportsbook will let you make your wager as a risk-free bet.

FanDuel counts your first bet as the determinant for this promotion. If you win your first bet, the promo expires and you get your payout as normal.

However, if the sportsbook grades your first bet a loss, FanDuel Sportsbook will issue a refund in site credit to your account equal to the amount of your first wager up to $1,000. So, if you deposit $1,000 and then bet that entire amount and lose, you’d get the whole wager credited right back to you in site credit. That promotional credit expires in 14 days.

Futures Bonus

Similar to the above BetMGM bonus, FanDuel Sportsbook offers a futures bonus to entice player to make a wager of at least $50 in the Super Bowl winner market. Again, each regular season win by the selected team earns the bettor $5 in site credit.

The main difference on FD Sportsbook is the site credits are capped at $50, or 10 wins.

This promotion is open to all users who opt in.

SugarHouse New Jersey NFL Week 1 Promos

Yet another shop in New Jersey offering a couple of promo options is SugarHouse Sportsbook.

New users on SugarHouse Sportsbook can take advantage of a 100% deposit match bonus up to $250. Just sign up through this link and use the promo code PLAY250.

The deposit bonus has a 1x playthrough requirement, meaning the user must wager at least that amount to turn it into cash. Only bets at odds of -200 moneyline or longer (i.e., -250 wouldn’t qualify) count toward the playthrough.

Users have 30 days to clear the bonus.

Sunday NFL Futures Profit Boost

Every Sunday during a special promotional period that started Aug. 1, SugarHouse gives NFL futures bettors the chance at scoring some extra cash.

Each Sunday, users who log in get a 25% boost on one NFL future placed in the next 24 hours — max bet of $25, max extra winnings of $250. Odds on the future must be no higher than -200 once again.

Only one applicable Sunday — Sept. 5 — remains, so be sure to get this extra value locked in if you’re in New Jersey.

Unibet New Jersey NFL Week 1 Promos

Special to customers using sign-up links from TheLines, new Unibet customers in New Jersey can get a risk-free bet worth up to $600. All you have to do is register your new account with Unibet and then use the bonus code BETBONUS.

Once you’ve made your first deposit, your first cash bet (minimum of $10) qualifies as risk-free. If the bet loses, Unibet will refund you a matching amount up to $600 in site bonus money.

  • Bonus money must be wagered at odds of -300 or longer (i.e., -275 would count but not -375)
  • 1x playthrough requirement to turn bonus money into cash

Unibet New Jersey also promises daily odds boosts, and when NFL season gets rolling, many of those seem sure to center on NFL games.

PointsBet New Jersey NFL Week 1 Promos

Customers at PointsBet in New Jersey have access to a big welcome bonus if they are opening a new account and making their first deposit. They can get up to $2,000 in bonus money from risk-free bets — $500 from a traditional fixed-odds bet and another $1,500 from a points bet.

An explanation of points betting is beyond the scope of this article. For a more in-depth explanation, head over to our PointsBet landing page and scroll down to the “betting options” section.

Assorted Other Promos

PointsBet isn’t holding back in the creativity department either, with plenty of other interesting bonuses promised. Here’s a look at a few they have

  • Tampa Bay vs. Dallas (Sept. 9) – Tom Brady to throw for 1+ yards – max bet $10
  • No juice (+100) spread betting for select NFL games 48 hours prior to kickoff
  • Thursday Night Football — $25 risk-free bet on your first single game parlay

WynnBet New Jersey NFL Week 1 Promos

One of the New Jersey sportsbooks rolling out the biggest selection of NFL Week 1 promos is WynnBet.

First, we’ll go over the new user bonus, which gives a chance for a risk-free bet up to $1,000. Newly depositing players (minimum $20) in qualifying states like New Jersey who sign up through our link and opt in get their first qualifying bet risk-free. Qualifying bets must be at least $20 and between odds of -150 and +10000, pregame only. If the bet loses, the customer gets a free bet in the matching amount.

Alternatively, new players could go for a different, more certain sign-up bonus. WynnBet also offers new players to bet $1 and win a $100 free bet on the Bucs vs. Cowboys season opener. Just sign up for a new account, opt in, deposit at least $20 and place a $1 moneyline wager on the game.

But if you already have a WynnBet account, fear not. They haven’t forgotten about their established customers either.

Assorted Other WynnBet NFL Promos

WynnBet has at least three more offers that everyone can take advantage of for Week 1 of the NFL season or even beyond:

  • Triple the spread — Get the Cowboys +22.5 on Thursday night (max bet of $20)
  • Primetime Live Time — Make at least three live bets of $25 or more on Monday Night Football to earn a $20 free bet for Thursday Night Football
  • Sunday Night Bonus Play — Bet at least $50 on four NFL games (spread or moneyline) during the Sunday 1 p.m. ET slate to earn a $50 free bet for Sunday Night Football
