Attention, Everybody: DraftKings Is Giving All Users a Free Bet Today!

Thursday, May 14 may be just a normal, boring old day for some folks. But, for people in the betting world, it’s the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court striking down the federal ban on sports betting.

To celebrate, DraftKings Sportsbook is giving all new and existing users a free $5.14 bet. Sure, using it to bet on a -500 favorite isn’t going to boost your bankroll all that much. Hit a 100-1 longshot with it, though? Now we’re talkin’ …

Here are some more details:

  • Available States: NJ, NH, WV, PA, IN, IA and CO
  • Free Bet must be placed before 11:59 PM ET on 5/14
  • Free Bet not available through the Quick Bet feature
  • One Free Bet per user
  • Includes live bets and parlays
  • Free bet amount is not included in winnings

These winnings will be turned into cash, so once you win your free bet, any winnings can be withdrawn if you so choose. There aren’t many stipulations that come along with this promotion, which is why it’s a good one.

You could bank on an easy winner to get a couple extra bucks in your account, but I imagine many folks will be using it like a lottery ticket. One potential option if you’re looking for some instant gratification: Our NASCAR expert PJ Walsh like Tyler Reddick at 80-1 odds for this Sunday’s race at Darlington.

You lose? It’s like nothing ever happened. You win? Hello, flatscreen TV! Hello, Air Jordans!! Hello, 2002 Toyota Camry with 250,000 miles!!!

There’s no waiting around for this promo, as this free bet will disappear at midnight eastern on May 14. Now go out and make some free money.
