Thanksgiving is upon us, and NFL games will be a little bit more special for those in Pennsylvania this year because for the first time ever you can legally bet on them thanks to PA online sports betting.
Yes, with now seven sportsbooks live and ready to take your action, Thanksgiving is a huge opportunity for sports betting apps in Pennsylvania to gain new customers. Each of them is rolling out special promotions for the occasion. Which are best, and where should you funnel your money on this Turkey Day?
Here’s our breakdown of your best bets.
DraftKings Sportsbook Parlay
New users will get a $100 risk-free parlay for all three NFL games when you sign up here. If your parlay doesn’t hit, DraftKings will refund your money up to $100. This is available for new users only.
In addition, they’re offering several offers for both new and current players in PA.
Their appetizer focuses on Flash Bet.
You may have heard of live or in-game betting, which allows you to wager on sports during the games. Typically, these markets have been for betting on quarters, halves and line changes for the outcome of the game. But now DraftKings Sportsbook is one of the few operators offering what they call Flash Bet, which allows you to bet on individual drives or the next team to score.
Place one of these bets on Thanksgiving and DraftKings will make your first one $5 risk-free. That might not sound like a lot of money, but since there are so many opportunities to place Flash Bets in-game, you probably don’t want to be wagering too much on every drive anyway. This is a good way for DraftKings to get you to try it out risk-free.
Next up, they’re offering their main course: an extra leg parlay, which means that if you place a three-team parlay and it hits, they will pay you out as if there was a fourth leg on that parlay. This cannot be combined with the parlay offer for new users. It does apply to all Week 13 NFL games. But the bet must be placed on Thanksgiving.
Last up, they have “d-ssert,” where if you place an over-under bet for any of the Thanksgiving games, you will get $5 for every turnover and $1 for every sack in that game. This applies only to Thanksgiving games.
DraftKings Sportsbook is easily the most promotional of all the PA sportsbooks for Thanksgiving.

Unibet Turkey Leg Parlay Boost
Next up is Unibet PA. They, too, are focusing on the parlay. The Unibet Turkey Leg Parlay Boost requires you to place a pregame spread bet on all three Thanksgiving Day games and combo them as a parlay. If it wins, they’ll boost the winnings by 50%.
How to do it?
Picks three Thanksgiving games against the spread. Once all three teams are selected, click “Bonus Offers,” and you’ll see a 50% boost appear. There is a $50 max stake.
You must place the bet by 12:30 p.m. on Thursday.
FanDuel Sportsbook Totals Promo
The most popular online sportsbook in Pennsylvania, FanDuel Sportsbook, is running a special on over-unders.
They will double your winnings on any over-under bet for Thanksgiving day games up to $50.
Unlike some of these other offers, you can bet all three games individually and take your chance of doubling your winnings if you bet on the total up to $50.
Keep in mind this bonus money is not eligible for withdrawal immediately, and you must wager it again within seven days before it can be eligible to be withdrawn. Most sportbooks include some sort of fine print similar to this.

FOX Bet Early Game
FOX Bet is one of our favorite sports betting apps in PA, and they are offering a Cousin Sal “Custom Sal” money back special.
For Thanksgiving, FOX Bet is allowing you to choose whatever bet you’d like on the Bears vs. Lions game, which they will broadcast, and they’ll refund your first bet on that game up to $25 if it doesn’t hit. This offer is available for all players.
New players to FOX Bet also get $20 free with no deposit at all, then their first deposit is matched up to $100.
There’s a slew of promotions FOX Bet runs, and it’s worth trying out the app because you literally get $20 free in-app.

SugarHouse Deposit Match
Lastly, SugarHouse Sportsbook.
SugarHouse is known for their $250 deposit match for new users, meaning they will match the money you put into your account the first time up to $250. This money only needs to be bet once before it is eligible for withdrawal. This is the best in the industry.
For Thanksgiving, they’re extending this offer to all users and matching your deposits on Thanksgiving day 100%.
Now, there’s a caveat. This is single-use and the amount they match your deposit is based on your current Loyalty Level with SugarHouse. This one is eligible for current players only, but it is a way for people who play with SugarHouse to get some bonus money this holiday season.
That’s it. Those are the best sports betting promos in Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving Day. Gobble, gobble.
