Working from home the last few months hasn't been the easiest. I miss hanging out with my buddies, and having pretty much no live sports on TV has been a bummer.
I'm a sports fiend - you name it, I love it. A few of my buddies have always been into sports betting, but for me, just being a spectator is enough.
To fill the live sports void, the guys and I have been having virtual game night every Friday. Last week, my friend Dave told us about the upcoming UFC fight, Fight Island, and that his go-to betting app, FanDuel Sportsbook, has an awesome offer for new users that we should take advantage of.
FanDuel Sportsbook is an online betting platform that makes betting on your favorite sports a breeze, even for newbies like me. They have a rookie-friendly app that allows you to make bets and keep up with the action all in one place. They even have in-depth guides for new players, so if you don't know what any of the terminology is, no sweat.
To celebrate Fight Island, FanDuel Sportsbook has an awesome offer for new users. Sign up by downloading the app, deposit money into your account and get 25-1 odds on any fighter to win in the three championship fights. If you don't know here's the line up-
Welterweight/Main Event: Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal
Featherweight/Co-Main: Alexander Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway
Bantamweight/Title Bout: Petr Yan vs. José Aldo
It's a $5 max bet, but you could win up to $125. If you don't want to bet on the fight, they have another great offer for new users - a $500 risk free bet! That means that if you lose your bet, they'll refund it in site credit. Seems like a win-win situation to me.
Signing up for a FanDuel Sportsbook account couldn't be easier. You can sign up online or through the app, which is free to download. They'll ask you for some basic info like your social security #, so that they can keep all of your information safe.
Making deposits and cashing out winnings is also super easy, all I had to do was link up my debit card or bank account. I love that you can cash out your winnings any time you want - no crazy wait times.
The fight is just a couple of days away, and I'm even more excited now that I have money riding on it. Dave convinced all of the guys to get in on the action, can't wait to see who comes out on top and hopefully win some cash!
