FanDuel Ohio Promo Code: New-User Bonus in OH vs. Other States for NFL Week 18 article feature image

The latest FanDuel Sportsbook promo code in Ohio is offering $200 if new users bet $5 on any game, which includes NFL Week 18. There are two games Saturday — Chiefs-Raiders and Jaguars-Titans.

No actual promo code is required — just use this link in Ohio.

In all other states, FanDuel is offering a $1,000 no-sweat first bet, which means if your first wager on the platform loses, you’ll be refunded up to

Offer 1: FanDuel Bet Credits

First, you’ll need to wager $5 on anything to get the bet credits. Let’s do that on Western Michigan vs. Toledo in college basketball, because it’s at 6:30 p.m. ET — we’ll then have our $200 in bet credits for Cavs-Nuggets at 9 p.m. ET.

So how do FanDuel’s bet credits work, anyway? It’s like FD is spotting you the bet, and you keep the profits if you win.

With $200 in bet credits, let’s put $50 of them on the Cavs moneyline in Denver at +200.

  • If the Cavs win, you profit $100, but don’t keep the $50 in credits.
  • If the Cavs lose, the bet credits go away.

We always recommend you make plus-money wagers with your bet credits. 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.

Offer 2: No-Sweat First Bet

Alright, let’s tackle the $1,000 no-sweat first bet available in all other states. If you have $3,000 available to deposit, you can actually lock in more cash than the $200 offer. We explain how here.

But let’s say you go about it the normal way. Say you deposit $300 and bet it all on Cavs moneyline at +200.

  • If the Cavs win, you profit $600 and keep the original $300.
  • If the Cavs lose, you get back $300 in bet credits.

You can then use the bet credits like we described above — on anything this weekend.

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)
