Like the rest of the legal New Jersey sports betting sites, DraftKings Sportsbook is offering an inventive Super Bowl signup bonus to new players, along with a free-to-play squares game and odds boosts.
Free bet up to $600
DraftKings has increased their initial signup bonus for the week by offering free bets up to $600.
Here’s how it works:
Deposit at least $5 and receive a $100 free bet, and then your first bet will be matched up to $500. Previously, they only had the $500 first bet match. You can claim the offer here.
Other sportsbooks, such as BetStars, do offer $500 bonuses, but this is the first total value we’ve seen hit $600.
Free squares game
More in line with what you’re expecting for the Super Bowl, DraftKings is offering up a free squares game. Pick a square, and then the columns will be randomly generated at the start of the game. Winners will share from a $53,000 cash prize pool, and for every 100k entrants, they’ll add additional cash prizes.
Here are the details on how to play from their website:
You can play the squares game here.
Super Bowl odds
Patriots -2.5 (-117)
Over-Under 56 (-119 over, -112 under)
As with most Super Bowl spreads, the lines have been pretty well hammered into place, with a vast majority of the action and money falling on the Patriots, bringing them up from -1 at the start. The Patriots side of the line is inching upward slightly, however. The over-under has come down from 56.5, where it was for most of the week, with the under becoming more expensive at that price. It will be interesting to see if any late money pushes the Patriots over the all-important 3-point plateau.
DraftKings Sportsbook is also running several unique odds boosts for the big game:
