How Does the FanDuel Maryland Promo Work?
If you're new to sports betting, which many Marylanders may be, this is a great question! It's important to understand the difference between the types of sign up bonuses. Action has got you covered with this detailed bonus guide.
Here is a quick overview of how FanDuel's new user promotion works.
After signing up at FanDuel and making an initial deposit, users simply need to place a $5+ qualifying wager. Once the bet has been settled, users will be credited $200 in free bets, regardless of if their wager wins or loses. It's that simple!
By way of example, let's say that I signed up for FanDuel and made my initial deposit. I want to bet on the New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys game on Thanksgiving Day.
I place a $5 wager on the Giants to win. Regardless of the outcome of the game, I will receive $200 in free bet credits to my account after the wager has settled. If my bet were to win, I would also receive my original stake back plus the profits from my wager.
Understanding Free Bet Credits
Free bet credits on FanDuel are simple enough. Here are a few things to know so you can use free bets most effectively:
- Free bet credits cannot be withdrawn as cash. You can only use them to make wagers within the FanDuel platform
- Free bet credits can and will expire if you do not use them within the allotted time (typically within 7 days of receipt).
- Free bets do not have to be used as a lump sum. In other words, players can use a portion of their free bet credit total over several bets until it is used up.
- Players will only receive the winnings from a wager that uses a free bet. You will not get the free bet stake like you would when playing with your own money.
- Free bets cannot be combined with other FanDuel promotions.
