After seeing my buddies win big on a few games, I downloaded both FanDuel Sportsbook and DraftKings Sportsbook to get in on the action. Both have a $500 offer for new users that seemed like a great deal.
After checking them out, I saw that FanDuel Sportsbook's offer to new users blew DraftKings out of the water. They offer a risk-free bet of $500 for new members.
DraftKings claim to do the same, but you only get 10% of that bonus upfront and need to bet $25 to get each remaining $1 in bonus credit.
For someone who deposits $2500, they have to bet through $12,500 to get their full bonus! All of the fine print is hard to understand and makes the whole thing super expensive.
FanDuel Sportsbook's offer is actually risk-free- all you have to do is place a wager up to $500, and they'll match the bet-- no strings attached. If you win, then you get the amount returned to you, and the winning amount as site credit.
So if you win $250 on a $500 bet, you get $750 back. Even if you lose, you'll still get the amount you bet back as site credit to bet on future games.
Signing up for FanDuel SportsBook was easier than I expected, all I had to verify my identity (name and address, your payment info and social security number) so that they know you're over 21 years old, and can keep your information safe.
I placed my first bet the next Sunday at the bar with the guys. You can place a bet right up until the game starts, so after a couple of beers and right before the game started, I decided to play the $500 risk-free bet.
I bet on the Colts to win against the Chiefs on Sunday Night Football (Chiefs were a heavy favorite but I had a feeling), so having money on the game added a fun extra layer to a competitive game!
The Colts pulled off the upset, and so did I! Trash talking my buddy who is a huge Chiefs fan made it all the better.
The Sportsbook app is super easy to use and you can cash out at any time, no matter how big or small the win is. Fanduel Sportsbook makes me so much more pumped for upcoming games.
And there's also nothing better than watching your best friends team lose after listening to months of gloating!
