FanDuel Sportsbook Is Live In Michigan: $1,000 Risk Free Bet

Posted By Derek Helling on January 22, 2021

The day has finally arrived for sports fans in the Great Lakes State who want to try out legal online sports betting. FanDuel Michigan is now taking your bets on a wide array of sporting events.

While it’s easy to be eager to get started, you shouldn’t do so without taking advantage of a sweet deal that FanDuel Sportsbook has for new customers in Michigan. Essentially, the sportsbook wants to make sure that for your first bet, you can only win.

With these three simple steps, you can be placing a risk-free bet at FanDuel in just minutes. All you need is a few pieces of information and your phone.

1. Use these links to download FanDuel Sportsbook

Whether you’re on a phone or tablet — Android or iOS — FanDuel Michigan has you covered. Their apps are user-friendly and your gateway to a risk-free first bet worth up to $1,000. All you have to do is click or tap on the appropriate link below.

If you want to try your hand at a few slots at FanDuel Casino, click here. Note: New users will be limited to 1 offer (sports or casino) on account creation.

2. Download the FanDuel Michigan app

After following the link above, let the technology do its thing. The app will walk you through the account registration process after it installs. If you’ve played daily fantasy sports games on FanDuel before, you can use that same username and password to sign in.

FanDuel might need some more information to verify your eligibility to place bets. Also, if you’re completely new to FanDuel altogether, the sportsbook will need all of the following from you:

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

The best part is that not only does FanDuel use one app for each jurisdiction, but its casino, DFS, and sports accounts share a wallet. Just be sure the app knows you are betting in Michigan. You will need to deposit some sportsbook funds in order to take advantage of the risk-free bet offer, and that’s the next step.

3. Claim your free money

The real lynchpin of this offer is your first deposit. FanDuel requires you to put at least $10 in your sportsbook account. You can use any of a variety of methods to make that deposit, including:

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

As long as you clicked the link above and make a qualifying deposit of $10 or more, FanDuel will refund the value of your first wager up to $1,000 should you lose. You must place your first bet within seven days of registration, though.

If you win, you will receive your winnings as normal. Wagers with odds of -200 or greater are not eligible. You must bet through bonus funds before you can withdraw them and the total wager amount must be at least equal to the sum of your initial deposit plus the bonus.

With no risk, it’s easy to be adventurous. This weekend presents a lot of opportunities to use that free bet, so it’s a good thing FanDuel Michigan has finally arrived.
