Maryland Sports Betting is Live! Celebrate and Claim $5,400 in Bonuses

Mobile sports betting has officially begun in Maryland!

It’s been a long road with a lot of setbacks but bettors in Maryland can finally place bets from the comfort of their own homes just in time for the 2022 World Cup and the final half of the NFL season. 

Right now DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM, Caesars, BetRivers, and PointsBet are the first sportsbooks to officially launch their mobile platforms. 

The launch of Maryland mobile sports betting could be a bit overwhelming for new bettors but we’ve compiled all of the bonuses that sportsbooks are currently offering so bettors can take advantage of the deals. The best part is, you don’t have to settle for just one bonus. You can claim as many as you want.

As bettors are trying to decide which sportsbooks to create accounts with, here’s everything you need to know about each bonus currently available. 

DraftKings Maryland Claim $200 in free bets

DraftKings Maryland is offering a generous bonus of $200 in free bets once you place a bet of at least $5. Bettors will be able to claim the free bets no matter what sport they place the original bet on or if they win or lose that bet. 

As long as you place a $5 bet on something you will receive $200 worth of free bets deposited into your account. 

Caesars Maryland Claim a $1,500 free bet on Caesars (Code: SHARPBETPICS)

Caesars Maryland has two different offers, allowing bettors to choose which of the two they would rather use. 

The first of which is a higher risk bigger reward sort of offer with up to $1,500 back if new bettors lose their first bet but to qualify for this offer bettors must place a minimum first bet of $101. If your bet loses, the refund will be the same amount as the lost wager, with a maximum reward of $1,500.

Caesars’ second offer is a bit more traditional and might suit bettors who are just getting into sports betting a bit better. New bettors will receive a free $100 bet. To qualify, though, your first bet has to be at least $20 and no more than $100. 

BetMGM Maryland Claim first bet insurance of up to $1,000 (Code: SHARP)

BetMGM Maryland is offering first bet insurance of up to $1,000. If new bettors lose their first bet they’ll receive the same amount placed back in free bets. Meaning, if you place a $10 bet and lose you will receive $10 back in free bets. 

FanDuel Maryland Claim $200 in free bets

FanDuel Sportsbook is offering a generous bonus like DraftKings. Bettors will get $200 in free bets back as long as they place at least a $5 bet with their first bet. The bonus is valid for any sport and any bet type, bettors will also still get the $200 in free bets even if they win their first bet. 

PointsBet Maryland Claim two second-chance free bets up to $2,000 (Code: BESTOFFER)

PointsBet Maryland is currently offering two second-chance bets up to $2,000. The first one is on a fixed-odds wager, which is the traditional sportsbooks odds format, and they’ll offer up to $500 back with free bets if you lose.

The second is offered on a Points Betting wager, Points Betting is a unique type of betting offered on the sportsbook with in-game spreads and it could lead to bigger paydays depending on how right your bets are. There is a bigger risk, too, because you could lose more than you wager. The bonus on a Points Betting wager is up to $1,500 in free bets if your first bet loses.

BetRivers Maryland Claim second-chance bet up to $500 (Code: SHARPRIV)

BetRivers Maryland has a special offer similar to BetMGM, it’s just a different name. If the initial bet loses, up to $500 of that will be returned as site credit.
