With the third round of the US Open on tap along with Stanley Cup action and Euro 2024 getting underway, there is up to $350 in bonus value to collectively seize from DraftKings and FanDuel — if you haven't signed up for either yet.

The value comes in the form of bonus bets; DraftKings gives you $150 after placing your first $5 bet while FanDuel offers $200 if your first bet hits. Those in Massachusetts and Ohio will get $300 for a winning first bet at FanDuel. 

Confused? I'll talk more about the promos and how they will work this weekend if you keep reading.

DraftKings Promo, Explained

The DraftKings Sportsbook offer will bank $150 in bonus bets that need to be used within seven days whether your first bet wins or loses — as long as it is at least $5.

Bonus bets at DraftKings come in $25 splits instead of having the customizability to place in whatever increments you want.

So here's a quick example. Let's suppose you deposit money into a new DraftKings account and place $10 on Rory McIlroy to win the US Open this weekend. He is favored as of Friday at +260.

McIlroy shot a bogey-free five-under 65 on Thursday at Pinehurst No. 2, sharing the first-round lead at Pinehurst. McIlroy excelled in all areas, ranking among the top 25 in various Strokes Gained categories, hitting 11 of 14 fairways, 15 of 18 greens in regulation, and sinking 73 feet of putts, including a 19-foot birdie on the 18th hole.

If McIlroy pulls out the win on Sunday, the $10 would return a $36 payout with $150 in bonus bets, but if not, you would just get the $150.

FanDuel Promo Code, Explained

FanDuel's offer also takes a $5 wager on any event, and receive $150 in bonus bets if your first bet wins. With no odds requirement, it's wise to bet on a heavy favorite; if your bet loses, there's no payout or bonus, but if it wins, you'll get both the payout and the $150 in bonus bets, which can be used in any amount at FanDuel.

In Massachusetts and Ohio you'll see $300 in bonus value if your bet wins. Bonus bets must be used within seven days, and the stake is not returned regardless of the outcome.

FanDuel's bonus bets can be used in any amounts and they stick around for seven days before expiration. Use these bonus bets on underdogs to maximize expected value.

So let's go with a longshot for the US Open in this case. Dustin Johnson was listed at 100-1 before the first tee on Thursday.

He ranks sixth in Strokes Gained: Total at U.S. major championships since 2018, remains a formidable contender capable of competing with the world's best, evidenced by his recent 66 at the PGA Championship and a win on LIV Golf this season.

A $100 bonus bet that was placed before the tournament began on Thursday would result as follows:

  • Johnson wins the US Open: You gain $10K in real money
  • Johnson doesn't win the US Open: You get $0
