How to Use the Barstool Sportsbook Maryland Promo
Here is everything that you need to know:
After signing up for Barstool Sportsbook, new users must opt-in into the Bet & Get $100 promotion. This can be found in the “Promotions” tab in the left-side panel on both the app and website.
After opting in to the promotion, all a user has to do is place a qualifying wager of any amount. The player will automatically receive in $100 in free bets regardless of if the bet wins or loses. That’s right. You get $100 no matter the outcome! It is worth noting, though, that the bet has to settle as a “Win” or “Loss” so be sure to select a wager that is unlikely to push or draw.
But you want to make your first bet on the platform a big one, because that’s also the new player bonus, which means if your first bet loses, you’ll be refunded whatever you lost in bonus cash.
Let’s go through an example of how the promotion works looking at the Cowboys-Giants Thanksgiving matchup. Pretend that I have signed up for Barstool, made my initial deposit, and opted-in to the new user promotion.
Next, I place a $50 wager on the Giants moneyline. In this hypothetical situation, we’ll say that New York loses. While I lost my bet, my account will still be credited with $100 in free bets.
