Best Maryland Sports Betting Launch Bonuses: Claim up to $1,300 for Launch Day

Online sports betting in Maryland is so close you can almost taste it.

Sports betting apps in Maryland are expected to launch before Thanksgiving, and it can’t come soon enough for sports bettors in the Old Line State. While the official launch date isn’t set in stone, a few launch bonuses have already arrived at FanDuel Maryland, DraftKings Maryland, PointsBet Maryland, BetMGM Maryland, and most recently Caesars Maryland.

Here are the details for all the bonuses, which can land you $1,300 in freebies if you claim all of them. These offers will only be available before the app goes live, which will happen in the near future.

Caesars Maryland Promo Code SHARPBET1H: How to Claim

The latest Maryland launch bonus to drop is from Caesars Sportsbook. If you sign up using Caesars Promo Code SHARPBET1H, you will receive $100 in free bets. That betting credit will be awarded as four free $25 bets, and you’ll get one each week for the first four weeks sports betting is live in Maryland.

If you sign up early, you might also be eligible to claim Caesars Sportsbook’s ongoing new customer offer of a $1,250 First Bet on Caesars. With that, new customers get a bit of insurance on their first bet. If that first wager loses, Caesars will refund your account with betting credit equal to the amount of the wager you lost up to $1,250.

DraftKings Maryland Promo Code: How to Claim

New customers can sign up using our DraftKings promo code link to score $200 in free bets that will be available when online betting is officially launched. There is NO DEPOSIT required. All you have to do is sign up with our link and count down the days until mobile wagering is live. With this bonus, you’ll also be entered into a sweepstakes awarding five lucky customers with one $100,000 free bet.

On top of the pre-launch bonus, you’ll also be eligible for the DraftKings Maryland regular new customer offer when the sportsbook launches in Maryland. In other legal states, DK offers a $50 free bet and a 20% deposit match up to $1,000, and you can count on it being the same in MD.

BetMGM Maryland Bonus Code: How to Claim

Yet another heavyweight in the US sports betting landscape, BetMGM Maryland has arrived with one of the nation’s most generous launch bonuses. Like DraftKings, BetMGM is offering new customers $200 in free bets if they sign up before online sports betting launches. To claim the free bets, visit the BetMGM Maryland website and get started.

There is also a chance you will be able to claim the ongoing BetMGM Sportsbook offer for new users. That bonus comes in the form of a $1,000 risk-free bet. Stay tuned for details once BetMGM launches its sports betting app.

FanDuel Promo Code Maryland: How to Claim

FanDuel’s pre-launch offer in Maryland is $100 in free bets and can be claimed any time before the official launch date using this FanDuel promo code link. Once FD goes live in the state, you will have to make a minimum deposit of $10 to access your free bets. But for the time being, you can claim this bonus without making a deposit.

Like DraftKings, FanDuel Maryland also has a generous welcome bonus for new customers on top of the pre-launch offer. You can look forward to a ‘No Sweat First Bet’ of up to $1,000 once FD goes live in Maryland. That means you can wager up to a grand with your first bet, and if you lose, you’ll be refunded 100% of your stake with a free bet. It’s two chances for the price of one!

PointsBet Maryland Promo Code OFFERMD: How to Claim

PointsBet Maryland is giving new customers a chance to win big with its launch bonus. If you sign up using the PointsBet Maryland Promo Code OFFERMD, you can get five second-chance bets of up to $100 in addition to $200 in free bets.

The second-chance bets are similar to risk-free bets in that if your bet loses, PointsBet will refund your account with free betting credit. The $200 in free bets will be paid out in the form of one $50 free bet per week for four weeks.
