It’s launch week in Maryland. For that reason, DraftKings has three Maryland sports betting promos exclusive to bettors in the state. New users can get instant free bets and a few ways to double their money.
What’s more, interested Marylanders enter into the mobile sports betting world with an incredible slate of sports on the docket: the 2022 World Cup, Thanksgiving NFL games, college basketball and football, and more.
Here’s a rundown of what DraftKings is offering now to mark Maryland’s long-awaited launch (additional terms and conditions may apply):
DraftKings Maryland Promo No. 1: Bet $5, Get $200
Simple enough, yes?
Bettors located in Maryland who are first-time DraftKings Sportsbook customers can receive $200 in free bets instantly after a $5 deposit and wager from your DraftKings Maryland account.
The bonus is paid out as eight $25 free bets as long as you make your $5 (or more) qualifying wager. This is in addition to any winnings from your original bet. This deal lasts through the end of 2022.
DraftKings Maryland Promo No. 2: ‘No-Brainer’ NBA bet
This is the first of two “no-brainer bets.” They are pretty much as they sound. If you make the bet, it’s set up heavily to your advantage.
In this no-brainer bet, you can double your money (up to $50) if either the Dallas Mavericks or the Boston Celtics make a 3-pointer in their Wednesday matchup. For context, Dallas averages 13.6 made 3-pointers a game, and Boston averages 16.4 made 3’s.
Basically, you could say, a no-brainer.
All users physically present in Maryland are eligible. Note that any free bets gained cannot be doubled for this offer.
DraftKings Maryland Promo No. 3: ‘No-Brainer’ NFL bet
There’s one other no-brainer bet DraftKings is offering Maryland-based bettors.
If the Baltimore Ravens score a point Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, you can double your money up to $50. For added context, the Ravens are 7-3 and the over-under on Sunday’s game is 43.5.
Similar to the prior offer, free bets are ineligible for this special deal.
