DraftKings Maryland Sportsbook Promo: How To Take Advantage of 3 Launch Bonuses

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.

Get all these sign-up offers now at DraftKings Maryland!

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.
