With Maryland online sports betting likely launching before Thanksgiving, DraftKings Maryland is offering sweepstakes for new users. Users will be entered to win a $100,000 free bet.
All signs are pointing to the launch of Maryland mobile sports betting to be on or around Nov. 23. Bettors in Maryland will have a good amount of sportsbooks and bonuses to choose from, but DraftKings is one of the best. DraftKings is already one of the leading sportsbook operators in the United States, and now it is adding to its reputation by offering new customers a chance to win bigger than ever.
Although DraftKings will limit the number of $100,000 free bets to five, all new customers will get $200 in free bets just for signing up before launch day.
DraftKings Maryland will offer odds on the NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, soccer, boxing, golf, and many more sports for bettors to choose from. As bettors await the official launch date announcement, here’s everything you need to know about the DraftKings Maryland Promo Code.
What Do You Get With the DraftKings Maryland Promo Code
If you create a DraftKings Sportsbook account before the launch day you will be entered into the sweepstakes for a chance to win a $100,000 free bet, and five winners will be chosen.
Bettors will also receive $200 in free bets which will be paid out as eight $25 free bets, and they must be used within seven days of receiving them.
The free bets and chance to win are guaranteed as long as you sign up before launch day. The bonus will expire at 11:59 p.m. ET on launch day. There is no deposit required to claim the bonus.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to creating a DraftKings account and claiming the pre-launch bonus.
- Go to the DraftKings Maryland website.
- Download the app from the app store. Once it’s downloaded you will need to enable location services in order to place bets.
- To get your account started you’ll need to provide some personal information which includes your name, email, address, birthday, phone number, and the last four digits of your social security number.
- Once you do those simple steps you’ll receive the free bets on launch day and be entered into the sweepstakes.
Mobile Betting Launch Update
Sports bettors in Maryland could be able to place bets from home by Thanksgiving Day, perfect timing for the annual Thanksgiving NFL games.
Maryland Lottery and Gaming (MLG) announced on Nov. 14 that the Sports Wagering Application Review Commission (SWARC) will hold a meeting on Nov. 16 to award mobile sports wagering licenses.
Once SWARC awards those licenses, a formal launch date will be announced.
DraftKings is among the original list of sportsbooks that could potentially receive a license and be one of the first to launch. The other applicants are BetMGM Maryland, Barstool Sportsbook, FanDuel, PointsBet, Caesars, and BetRivers.
After licenses are handed out operators will still need to do live demonstrations before they are allowed to start taking bets but it does seem that both MLG and SWARC are committed to trying to get this over the finish line before Thanksgiving Day.
