Get ready, folks. Kentucky online sports betting is just a few weeks away. Retail betting went live on Thursday ahead of Chiefs-Lions, with online betting to follow on Sept. 28 ahead of NFL Week 4.

Kentucky will mark the second state in which bet365 launched immediately, and it hopes its superior product will help it quickly gain market share. bet365 has our favorite same game parlay product on the market.

bet365 doesn't split up the bonus bets in any pre-determined increments — you can use them in any amount you'd like. So you can make 40, $5 bets or one, $200 bet.

  • A deposit (minimum $10) is required to participate in this offer. The deposit must be made in the 7 days prior to you claiming the offer.

  • Bets placed must meet certain conditions to count:
  • Must contain at least one selection at odds of -500 or greater.
  • Only the largest cumulative wager on an individual selection within a market/fixture combination (either pre-game or Live In Game) will count towards the settled bets requirement.
  • Where a bet has been partially Cashed Out, only the remaining active wager will count.
  • Where a bet has been edited using our Edit Bet feature, only the new wager on the new bet will count.
  • Fully Cashed Out, event-specific Bonus Bets placed by selecting ‘Use Bonus Bet’ from the bet slip, Live In Game bets which are settled as a push and bets deemed no action do not count.

DraftKings is right behind FanDuel in the U.S., as the two DFS operators turned sportsbooks have separated themselves from the pack in the first five years of sports betting in America. Like FanDuel, DK offers one of the best parlay products on the market, has innovative and original markets, and offers my favorite user experience and navigation of any sportsbook.

DraftKings Kentucky returns your bonus bets in eight, $25 increments.

5. Fanatics Sportsbook

  • Status: Pre-launch offer is live
  • Bonus code: No code
  • Offer: Get a jersey up to $150 after a $50 bet

Fanatics Sportsbook is making its entrance into the U.S. market and is offering new users a $150 official jersey with a $50 wager.

How Do Bonus Bets Work?

With all of these sportsbook offers, you're not just getting free cash. You're getting bonus bets, which you'll have the opportunity to turn into cash. Bonus bets are like a credit in which you keep any profit from bonus bet wagers, but not the bonus itself.

Here's how they work. Say you want to bet $10 in bonus bets on Kentucky football over 7.5 wins at +120.

  • If Kentucky goes over, you'll profit $12 in cash (a $10 bet at +120 pays $12) but you don't keep the bonus bet.
  • If Kentucky doesn't go over its win total, you just lose the bonus bet.
