For some people, the Super Bowl is a time to get together, eat junk food, and watch a football game for the commercials. However, DraftKings Sportsbook in New Jersey is spicing things up with free money for viewers to have some skin in the game – as much as $600!
How the DraftKings Sportsbook Big Game Free Bet works
This offer is unlikely to be matched anytime soon, to be honest. For new DraftKings players, a minimal deposit using the exclusive Big Game Free Bet to a whole bankroll of wagers.
For a scant $5 deposit, DraftKings will put 10 Free Bets into your account. Each Free Bet will carry a $10 value.
You read that correctly – a $5 first deposit gets $100 in free bets this weekend. I had to double-check the offer myself before I wrote about it because it literally sounded too good to be true.
As if that offer wasn’t generous enough, DraftKings’ usual first bet match is also active alongside this promotion. DraftKings will match your first deposit with a free bet up to $500. Deposit $500 and you’ll get a free $500 bet. Deposit $5 and get a $5 free bet. And everything in between. It’s that easy.
So, it’s possible that $600 of DraftKings Sportsbook money could fly your way this weekend. Make sure to make the most of this opportunity.
DraftKings Sportsbook has plenty of other promo options
Big Game Squares
However, if you’re not located in New Jersey to place a real-money wager on the big game, that’s no problem. In fact, a few lucky players will win a share of a $53,000 prize pool – absolutely free.
The Big Game Squares contest is open to anyone who wants to play. Download the DraftKings Sportsbook app and click on the Squares promotion. Pick one of the blank squares on the 10 x 10 grid, and you’re all set.
Then, watch the game, and pay attention to the final score. The object of the game is to match the last digit of each team’s final point tally with the number on your square.
If you match both numbers, you win. You’ll split the prize with any other players who chose the same square.
And remember, you don’t even need to be in NJ to play. The Big Game Squares game is open across the country.
Other Super Bowl Promos
For those who want a bit more on the line, DraftKings is also offering an NFL Big Game Pool. A $10 bet buys entry into a pool that has already ballooned to $25,000.
In order to play, a bettor must answer a series of 13 prop bets related to the game itself. These bets include questions about the coin toss, the game winner, the score type for the first points, and so on.
Players will win points based upon how many of these bets they choose correctly. The player(s) with the highest point total will split 50 percent of the prize pool.
The second-highest total winners will split 30 percent, and the third-best performers will divide 20 percent. A player can enter up to 20 times.
DraftKings is also sure to offer odds boosts as the game approaches. Make sure to log into the app several times as kickoff draws near, as there will certainly be some good last-minute deals available.
In short, this Super Bowl will be quite memorable for a select group of DraftKings bettors. Make sure to play so you can become one of them.
