- With the second weekend of online sports betting in New York here, the four sportsbooks currently live -- DraftKings, FanDuel, Caesars, and BetRivers -- are offering awesome promotions for the NFL Wild Card Weekend Playoffs.
- The Wild Card slate extends across three days this weekend, with two games Saturday, three on Sunday, and then the final game on Monday night. The winners will play again the following weekend in their march towards the Super Bowl in February.
- Check out all of the NFL Playoffs promos below, including a new, updated one from DraftKings on the Bills vs. Pats over/under, which is now set at just 11 points.
What a time in New York! Not only are the NFL Playoffs here with the home state Buffalo Bills looking like a contender, but legal online sports betting is also finally available. It launched last Saturday, so today makes it the week anniversary, and bettors can celebrate with an awesome Wild Card Weekend.
After watching neighboring New Jersey legally bet on the NFL Playoffs for years, it’s time for New Yorkers to get in on the party. There will be nine sportsbooks this year, four of which — Caesars, FanDuel, DraftKings, and BetRivers — have officially launched and are offering welcome promos. BetMGM is set to launch on Monday, and PointsBet, WynnBET, Bally Bet, and Resorts World should come soon as well.
To make things as easy as possible, we’ve compiled every promo code, welcome offer, and bonus you can take advantage of this weekend. We’ll also keep this post updated as more pop up. Just click the links below and take advantage of the free money today.
Best New York Sportsbooks, Apps, and Promo Codes
Caesars New York Sportsbook
- NFL Playoffs special: Get $300 FREE after signing up and your first deposit matched up to $3,000
Caesars is a giant in the gambling world, and if you’ve ever been to Las Vegas out west then you’ve likely run into their huge casino right on the strip. Following the overturn of PASPA in 2018, they decided to take things country-wide and launch in other markets. They’re now live with online betting and iGaming in 10-plus states, including New York as of last week.
If you’re wondering which offer is the best in the New York market, well it’s not really a competition: It’s this new user promo from Caesars. They’re giving $300 simply for signing up; in fact, you don’t even have to make a deposit to get those funds right away. You can get more value if you want, too: If you do decide to deposit, they’ll match your first one up to $3,000. That’s just an absurd amount of money to use on the NFL Playoffs.
BetRivers New York Sportsbook
While the other three books are more well-known nationally, don’t forget about BetRivers, a very solid option in the New York market. They’re also live in 10-plus states in the country at this point, and they’re a great option to add if you want to shop odds and always find the best line for a game.
They don’t offer promotions like this one very often, so make sure to sign up today. Here’s how it works: Sign up, deposit, and place a bet on the Buffalo Bills today. They’re currently favorites, but at BetRivers you can get them at dogs, and big ones at that! You can double your money if they win. Also note that you can get this offer in combination with their sign-up offer, which is a deposit match up to $250 on your first deposit.
FanDuel New York Sportsbook
- NFL Wild Card Weekend offer: Bet $5 on any NFL moneyline this weekend, get $150 if your team wins
FanDuel Sportsbook is the biggest sportsbook in the country right now, and it’s for very good reason: They are consistently ahead of the competition with their app and product and offer a ton of cool, different ways to bet. They were the first to launch same-game parlays, which have become a major hit in the betting world thanks to the fun, lottery-style payouts.
If you’re looking to sign up today, they’re giving out a nice promo on this weekend’s NFL Playoffs slate: Just sign up, deposit, and bet $5 on any game this weekend. If the team you bet on wins, you’ll get $150 deposited in your account. That’s 30/1 odds, which is pretty good considering you can even take a huge favorite like the Kansas City Chiefs.
DraftKings New York Sportsbook
- NFL Wild Card special: Bet $5, Win $280 on any NFL team’s moneyline this weekend for the playoffs
- Bills over special: “Hammer the Over” and get the Bills/Pats over/under at 17 (and falling)
DraftKings is a huge name in the gambling space, and they’ve been at it for a long time at this point. They originally launched as a daily fantasy sports (DFS) company a decade ago, and when online betting launched in 2018, they quickly decided to get into the sports betting and online casino game. They’re now live in 10-plus states, including New York as of last Saturday.
They have a few offers to take advantage of this weekend for the NFL Playoffs. We encourage you to do both, but make sure you do them in the right order: Take that first Wild Card special offer first, which is available for only new users. You’ll get 56/1 odds on any team this weekend, which is a crazy value. After that, you can still get the Bills over special, in which the over/under goes down the more people bet on it. It should be an automatic win soon enough.
Upcoming New York Sportsbooks
As mentioned above, more sportsbooks are coming in New York. Given the importance of odds and line shopping, plus the generous promotions being given out by these books, it’s wise to add as many as you can.
- Bally Bet
- Resorts World
BetMGM will be next in the game, launching early next week. PointsBet is also looking at a very near launch, with the other three coming sometime in 2022.
