FanDuel Sportsbook Ohio Promo Nets $200 in Bet Credits for NFL Week 17 article feature image

New users with FanDuel Sportsbook in Ohio can get $200 if they bet $5 with their sign-uppromo on any Week 17 NFL matchup.

No promo code is required. FanDuel is live in Ohio as the Buckeye State launched live and in-person sports betting Sunday at midnight.

There are several Week 17 games with major playoff implications, including the Monday Night Football matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Buffalo Bills in Cincinnati.

FanDuel New User Promo Requirements

FanDuel does have some requirements that potential new users have to meet in order to register for their sportsbook. Confirm your eligibility with the checklist below:

  1. Must be 21+ years old
  2. New users must be located in a state where FanDuel is active. You can do everything but bet from the state you live in — sign up, withdraw, deposit, etc. You just can’t bet until you’re inside state lines of a legal state, which now includes Ohio. That means if you place a bet on the Cleveland Browns-Washington Commanders game and then leave the state Sunday afternoon, you can still withdraw on Monday if it wins.
  3. Access to valid deposit method (credit/debit card, bank account, or other accepted medium)

What Is a FanDuel Bet Credit?

Most sportsbooks offer some form of bet credits, which is almost like cash, but it can’t be withdrawn. It must be bet first, then it will turn into cash.

Here’s an example. Say you have $200 in bet credits and you want to put it all on the Bengals +1 vs. the Bills on Monday.

You don’t have to place all $200 in bets at once — you can split them up across several different bets. It’s just easiest to use one big example.

  • If Cincinnati covers the spread, you keep the profits from that bet, but you don’t keep the bet credits.
  • If Cincinnati loses, you end up with nothing.

We always recommend you make plus-money wagers with your bet credits, so taking spreads actually isn’t the best idea. You’re getting much more expected value, since you don’t keep the initial stake. While you may not hit your bet credits as often at +500 since those outcomes are less likely, it’s mathematically optimal and you’ll make money in the long run.
