How the FanDuel Michigan promo code works

New customers signing up at FanDuel Sportsbook MI will get credited $150 worth of free bets after placing just one $5 bet. Simply placing the bet nets the money, it doesn’t matter if it wins or loses.

It takes about three steps to get this deal: Sign up for a new account, make an initial deposit of at least $10, place the $5 bet. That’s it! And again, new customers don’t even have to remember a code to snag this deal. Simply click “Play Now” above.

After signing up and placing a $5 wager on any available market, the $150 worth of free bets will get credited to your bet slip window within 72 hours. Make sure to manually select the “Sportsbook Free Bet” option when placing the bets.

Any funds won can be withdrawn immediately, minus the initial stake that came from the free bet credits.

How to set up a FanDuel account

Setting up a new FanDuel account is super easy. Customers must be 21 and older and will need to provide their first and last name, home address, birthday and last four digits of their social security number. Sometimes, a new user may have to submit a photo of their driver’s license to securely confirm their identity.

After the account is set up, you can then decide how to deposit and receive funds.

Because FanDuel operates a live sportsbook at MotorCity Casino in Detroit, it is possible to deposit and withdraw money on site there. For those preferring the mobile route, FanDuel accepts credit and debit cards with Mastercard or Visa logos, bank transfers, a FanDuel Prepaid Play+ card or a PayPal account.

However, to receive the $150 for $5 promotion, that initial deposit must be made online.

To receive withdrawals, users can get choose to get funds deposited into their bank account, PayPal account or receive a check that goes in the mail after seven to 10 business days.

Betting on the Lions and Eagles in Week 1

Ready to place that wager? Don’t lose heart when visiting the odds pages, Lions fans. Remember the rest of the country may take some time adjusting to American’s new darling team.

That said, FanDuel Sportsbook as of Friday morning had the visiting Philadelphia Eagles as 4.5-point favorites over the hometown big cats. The Eagles’ moneyline is at -205 while the Lions’ is set at -172. The over/under for the game is set at 48.5.

Philadelphia expects improved play from quarterback Jalen Hurts and his downfield weapons of Devonta Smith and A.J. Brown. But did they have at least two concert-worthy moments in their training camp days that inspired countless Americans across the country?As far as we know, they did not.

Can’t measure heart and Detroit never has a shortage in that department.
