Fanatics Sportsbook is officially on the American sports betting map and Thursday marks the beta launch in Maryland. Bettors getting on board will strike $200 in bonus bets with a $5 bet on the NBA Finals or any other sport they desire to wager.
The new sportsbook from the online apparel brand already launched in Massachusetts, Tennessee and Ohio.
The Fanatics beta experience will allow bettors to make all normal transactions such as depositing, betting, and withdrawing. You can join if you got an email from Fanatics, or through our links below — an Action Network exclusive.

Can I Expect a Better Fanatics Bonus Offer Later?
Believe it or not, this is actually the strongest "bet/get" offer in the industry right now — rivaling bet365's "deposit $10, bet $1, get $200" offer. There's the first bet on the house offers from BetMGM and FanDuel, but to see the full $1,000 value of those, you must wager $1,000 out of pocket.
What Are Bonus Bets and How Can I Use Them Thursday?
Wagering with bonus bets are similar to a normal bet, but you won't hold onto them after the bet settles regardless of the result. Let's look at Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Heat and Nuggets to explain:
Denver will host the Heat on a week-and-a-half's rest while Miami flies in after conquering Boston in Game 7 following a three-game slide. Nikola Jokic has found relative success against Miami with an 11-5 record, 20 points, and 11 rebounds through his career; he's also a perfect 6-0 through the last three seasons. The Nuggets have nine points on the spread while both teams have the two best DRTG of the playoffs with 111.7 and 111.5, respectively.
With a parlay of Nuggets -9 and Under 219, we have +265 odds. If we wager $100 in bonus bets on this parlay, we either get $265 back in real money or nothing at all.
*Eligible customers chosen for the beta test program who also create a Fanatics Sportsbook account will receive $150 in bonus bets to use for qualifying wagers in the next 7 days. $150 bonus bet terms. Bonus bets will be issued within 72 hours of customer meeting the qualifications. Terms apply. You will only be able to withdraw what you win as cash. Full FanCash terms.
