Michigan Man Suing DraftKings May 2021

The day that Louisiana Sports Bettors have been waiting for is nearly here, and DraftKings Sportsbook wants to get them started on the right foot.

With DraftKings having officially launched on Friday, it is going to offer a 20% deposit match for new users, up to $1,000. Along with that, you will get a $50 free bet bonus upon your first deposit.

There’s a quick-and-easy process for receiving this welcome offer from DraftKings.

Claim Your $1,050 Bonus at DraftKings Sportsbook

1. Use the banner above to claim the offer

2. Download the DraftKings Louisiana app

The link above will guide you to the appropriate place to download the DraftKings app from your device. If you’ve played DFS games with DraftKings before, you can use the same username and password. If DraftKings needs any further information from you to verify your eligibility to bet on sports, it will advise you.

For brand new users, you’ll need to provide DraftKings with the following information:

  • Date of birth
  • Email address
  • Last four digits of your Social Security Number
  • Legal name
  • Mailing address

DraftKings is efficient for users as both its sportsbook and DFS accounts share a wallet.

3. Claim your free money

The final step is making your first sportsbook deposit. DraftKings may offer payment options such as:

  • ACH payments from a checking or savings account
  • Credit/debit cards
  • PayNearMe
  • Third-party electronic wallets like PayPal

When deciding how much you want to deposit, note that DraftKings will match 20% of your initial deposit, up to $1,000. However, that offer will only stand for your first deposit.

Once you make your first deposit, you will also receive a $50 free bet bonus.

The deposit match bonus comes with a wagering requirement of 25x. You have 90 days to satisfy this, and you can use any combination of DraftKings products to meet the requirement. All bets must have odds of -300 or longer, though.

For example, if you deposit $500, you’ll get $100 as a bonus. If you want to withdraw that $100 at any point, or any bonus money you won by using it, then you would need to wager $2,500 first, within 90 days of your deposit.

So, why not start your sports betting experience with a little extra money from DraftKings?
