Barstool Sportsbook Promo Code Activates $1,000 for Saturday CFB
Barstool Sportsbook promo code ACTNEWS1000 unlocks a $1,000 new player bonus for all users making an account for the first time on the platform.
It works like this:
- Bet any amount up to $1,000 on any Saturday CFB game, or any other sport for that matter.
- If it wins, you keep the winnings and bet stake.
- If it loses, you get refunded in Barstool bonus cash — which is more advantageous at Barstool than any other book.
We'll explain more and get into some examples from this weekend, as well.
Barstool Promo Offer, Explained
The language that sportsbooks use to describe their promo types can be a bit confusing, but this offer is what other books might called a "risk-free bet."
Basically, you'll get refunded in free bets if your first wager on the platform loses.
Say I deposit $50 and bet it all on Kansas +100 against Oklahoma State on Saturday. The Jayhawks are around even-money as of publish time Saturday.
- So if Kansas wins, I make $50, and keep my $50. I now have $100 in my account to play around by betting, or I can withdraw it.
- If Kansas loses, I get $50 back in bonus cash, aka free bets. Those are not withdrawable, and must be wagered.
So how will those free bets work? Let's dive in.
Using the Free Bets
So with free bets, you'll
At most books, the best way to use promo bets is on plus-money wagers. But Barstool's work a little different, because you keep the bet stake from the bonus cash.
Here's an example that should illustrate it a bit better than me rambling on.
If you take the $50 in bonus cash and put it on Commanders moneyline against the Vikings at +150:
- You'd profit $75 if they win, and keep the $50. So you'd have $125 in your account off a $100 deposit.
- If the Commanders lose, you end up with nothing.
|Seahawks ML (W)||+114||$57|
|Falcons ML (L)||+134||$0|
|Rams ML (W)||+130||$65|
The Other Available Offer
Another offer is available if you can wait for Sunday's NFL slate.
Promo code ACTNEWS150 nets new users $150 in free bets if they bet $20 on any NFL game.
Just make sure:
- It's single game bet, not a parlay
- It's a $20 bet or more
- You don't cash the bet out mid-game
How to Bet Saturday's CFB Slate
Here at Action, we cover promos and sign-up offers. And so much more. If you need some ways to play Saturday's college football slate, you've come to the right place.
Here's one example of Kansas at plus-money or better, from Stuckey's moneyline underdog piece:
Fresh off of a bye, the Jayhawks will catch the Cowboys in their second straight road game after a brutal stretch of five high-profile Big 12 matchups in the month of October.
The gas tank has to be nearing empty, and the injuries are mounting.
On offense, the Pokes could be without starting quarterback Spencer Sanders (Mike Gundy’s son, Gunnar, would start if so) in addition to their top back, a pair of starting wide receivers and multiple starting linemen.
To make matters worse, the status of three starting defensive backs and their best defensive tackle remain in doubt.
Also, with an extra week to prepare, Kansas’ staff will likely have new wrinkles to add to its brilliant offensive scheme which is a nightmare to prepare for with all of its pre-snap deception and skill-position versatility.
I expect an abundance of success for the Kansas offense against a porous and likely undermanned Oklahoma State defense. Plus, the early down metrics suggest even rougher waters ahead.
Kansas quarterback Jalon Daniels could return, but the offense has run just as smoothly with Jason Bean. The scheme is truly the engine for an offense that just doesn’t allow negative plays.
I expect a great crowd and inspired effort from the Jayhawks, who will look to avenge last year’s embarrassing 55-3 loss. More importantly, a win will get the program to bowl eligibility for the first time since 2008.
For what it’s worth, Lance Leipold is 22-7-1 against the spread (75.9%) in home conference games as a head coach. He’s the second-most profitable coach out of 410 in this situation since 2005.
Signing up for most legal sportsbooks is pretty simple and can be done in just a few minutes. Here's how it works at Barstool.
