FanDuel Maryland Promo Code: Offers Available in MD vs. Other States – March 2023 article feature image

FanDuel Sportsbook has the same offer in Maryland as all other states for March Madness, as MD has gotten further away from its launch.

All new users get a $1,000 no-sweat first bet, which means you'll be refunded in bonus bets, equal to whatever you lost.

Most sportsbooks will have a unique offer for newly-launched states to acquire as many customers as possible right away. Then eventually, they'll go back to standard offers available in all states.

How FanDuel's Maryland Promo Works

OK, let's break this promotion down. It's better than the $1,000 no-sweat bet because you don't have to risk much of anything to turn the promo into a few hundred dollars.

Here's how it works.

Getting the Free Bets

The first step is to sign up at FanDuel and make your first deposit of at least $5. Then you'll want to place $5 on any bet — could be NBA, NFL, NHL, college football, college basketball. Pretend you place $10 on Morocco to win in regulation at +500 against Portugal in the World Cup.

Your account will automatically be credited with $200 in bonus bets after the bet settles, even if it loses. If it wins, you'll profit $50 and keep the original $10.

The $200 in bonus bets do expire in 14 days, so use them this weekend or shortly after so they don't expire.

How to Use the Bonus Bets

Alright, let's say Morocco wins, and you have $50 in cash in your account and $200 in bonus bets. Set the cash aside for now. We'll worry about it later.

It's time to use the bonus bets.

We always suggest betting on longshots when it comes to using a promotion. You make more profits over time — even if you're winning fewer bets. It's due to the expected value, since you don't keep the bet stake and just keep the winnings.

So let's say you use all $200 of your bonus bets Sunday on the Browns moneyling at +200 against the Bengals.

  • If the Browns win, you profit $400, but you don't keep the $200 in bonus bets. You'll now have $450 in cash (Browns win + Morocco win), and the promo is effectively over.
  • If the Browns lose, you'll still have the $50 in cash from Morocco.

How FanDuel's Offer Works in Other States

FanDuel's offer in other states is kind of similar, but let's cover some of the nuances.

The no-sweat bet works like this: Make your first bet up to $1,000. If it loses, you'll get refunded in bonus bets up to $1,000.

Here's an example. Say you deposit $500 and bet it all on Navy +1.5 against Army on Saturday.

  • If Navy covers, you win about $450, and keep the original $500. The promo is effectively over.
  • If Navy doesn't cover, you get $500 back in bonus bets.

The bonus bets will then work like we described above — you keep the winnings if they win, but you don't keep the initial bonus bet.
