FanDuel’s promo code will give new users a $1,000 no-sweat first bet for any sport — Wednesday Champions League, MLB, golf, or NFL and college football this weekend.

Here’s how to claim it:

  • Sign up with this link.
  • Deposit $10 to $1,000.
  • Make your first bet (using your full deposit amount).
  • If the bet wins, you keep the deposit and winnings.
  • It it loses, you’ll get a free bet back that equals the size of your first bet (and you’ll have 14 days to use those free bets).

Confused? Don’t worry — we’ll explain all the details of these offers below.

How FanDuel Promo Codes & Free Bets Work

Promo code language is confusing. No-sweat bets vs. free bet? What does this all mean, anyway? Is it a bonus, or actual free money?

Check out our explainer of sportsbook promos before betting at FanDuel.

Here’s an example of how your no-sweat bet will go:

  • You deposit and bet $200 on Borussia Dortmund +1200 against Man City in Wednesday Champions League action.
  • If Dortmund wins at +1200, you keep the $200, plus $2,400 in winnings.
  • If Dortmund loses or draws, you get $200 back in free bets.
  • If those free bets lose, you end up with nothing.

That’s why sportsbooks have gotten away from risk-free language with these promos, because you can lose your deposit if you lose those free bets you get back.

“Free bets” are bets that can be placed on anything but not withdrawn as cash.

Let’s say you bet a $10 free bet on Salzburg at +750 against Chelsea in UCL action.

  • If Salzburg wins: you profit $75 (you don’t keep the $10 free bet)
  • If Salzburg loses or draws: you end up with nothing

How to Sign Up at FanDuel Sportsbook

FanDuel has an easy sign-up flow and product thanks to its years of experience in DFS.

Here’s how to sign up.

  1. Use this link instead of a FanDuel promo code
  2. Enter all your real signup information (name, address, etc.)
  3. Deposit using a bank account, credit card, or PayPal
  4. Make your first bet!

Even if you’re traveling to a state with legal betting, you can sign up legally. Just use all your accurate information, including your home address in another state — don’t put your friend or parents’ address in the state you’re visiting. FanDuel won’t be able to verify your info if you lie about your address.

How to Use Your FanDuel Sportsbook Promo Code Bonus

The optimal way to use any free bets from promo codes is on plus-money wagers. The higher the line, the more expected value you get over time. Most bettors don’t want to use big risk-free bets on longshots at +1000, so +300 to +500 can be an excellent sweet spot.

These discount codes resulting in free bets are better than no-sweat bets. Here are a few ways to use your free bets and no-sweat bets at FanDuel on Tuesday, starting in the early afternoon with Champions League action.
