There is something much different about Super Bowl Sunday this year. Yes, the Los Angeles Rams have advanced to Super Bowl LIII to face Tom Brady and his New England Patriots. But unlike previous Big Games, there is now legalized online/mobile sports betting in New Jersey.
Sportsbook operators such as DraftKings, BetStars NJ, and FanDuel are rolling out free contests and special promos specifically geared for this week. Here is a rundown of NJ betting deals for Super Bowl Week.
Super Bowl Betting Bonuses 2020
DraftKings Sportsbook is offering a deposit bonus exclusive to the Super Bowl to the tune of up to $600 in free bets. On a deposit of $5 or more, 10 $10 free bets will be credited to an account. The current up to $500 match bet on the first real money wager is available, too. Terms and conditions apply.
But this certainly is not the only Super Bowl promo being offered by DraftKings, as there are two free-to-play games.
Big Game Squares
The company rolled out its Free Big Game Squares contest last week on its sportsbook and daily fantasy sports platforms. This is a national contest, which means you don’t need to be in New Jersey to pick a square. There is a $53,000 prize pool being divided into four payouts, including $21,200 for the end of game winner(s). The concept is the same as the one used in the office pool or at Super Bowl parties, pick a square and it’s yours for the entire game. If your numbers match the last digit of the respective team scores during one of the four payout periods, you win.
Big Game Prop Pools
The free DraftKings Big Game Pool has a $5,300 prize pool, but is only available using the sportsbook app. It features 13 propositions pertaining to Sunday’s game, and those with the best score compared to other entries will win the prize money. Here are some of the props:
- Color of the post-game Gatorade
- First scoring play
- Coin toss result
- Todd Gurley rushing yards
The new player bonus of up to $500 in free bets is still available for the Super Bowl. This is a multi-tiered promo in which players need to make $1,350 in bets to redeem full value of this bonus. Place your first bet, and get a matched free bet up to $50.
Touchdown Freebie: The TD Freebie promotion is still available for Sunday’s Big Game between the Patriots and Rams. Place a moneyline bet of at least $25 on either of the two teams, and receive a $10 free bet each time your team scores a touchdown.
The $500 Risk-Free Bet offer is on the sidelines until after the Super Bowl. FanDuel is replacing it with a 53:1 odds boost moneyline bet on the Patriots or Rams. The max wager is $5; if you select the winning side you will win $265 in site credit.
- Offer is valid Jan. 30 through Feb. 3
- Promotion is available to first 25,000 users to redeem
- Must be user’s first online wager
- Bet must be made from New Jersey using the FanDuel Sportsbook app
Big Game Bingo
FanDuel has created a special edition of the classic game just in time for Super Bowl LIII. Better yet, it’s available free via the FanDuel daily fantasy sports and sportsbook sites. The contest features a $25,00 prize pool ($1,000 each to first 25 players who get a Bingo). Anyone else who hits Bingo will earn a 1,000 FanDuel points. Instead of waiting for numbers to be called, squares will be filled each time a play/event occurs in the game. Some spaces feature non-football events. Squares might include:
- Booth review
- Muffed snap
- Celebrity sightings
