For the return of sports, FanDuel Sportsbook is rolling out a slew of free bet promotions for new and existing users.
In addition to their $500 risk-free bet offer (pretty standard among legal sportsbooks), FanDuel will give all customers – new and current – a $100 risk-free bet on their next bet for MLB games this weekend .
With sports returning this weekend, we’re facing a potential unbelievable six-month run for sports betting sites— MLB, NBA, Stanley Cup, NFL, The Masters, and even the Kentucky Derby, all jammed into the next three months. Delicious. Totally delicious.
FanDuel’s $100 “Welcome Back” Offer
Emailing customers today, FanDuel Sportsbook writes:
“Need one more reason to celebrate the return of sports? The next time you place a bet, you’ll trigger a day of risk free betting.
This offer is only valid on bets placed and settled that same day. Once games that day are over, we’ll add up all your net losses and refund you up to $100 in site credit.”
We checked with them, and this is in addition to their standard $500 risk-free bet for new users.
How it works is pretty simple. Your next bet with FanDuel’s sports betting app will be entirely risk-free if the bet is placed and settled on the same day. Say, like a $100 wager on Aaron Nola and the Phillies at -200 on Friday through FanDuel Sportsbook PA.

Other Promos From FanDuel This Weekend
Along with virtually every other legal sportsbook, FanDuel is running a bunch of other promos heading into the weekend. The sum total of their offers are as follows:
- $500 risk-free bet (new users)
- $100 risk-free bet (all users)
- blown lead insurance if your team blows a lead in the seventh inning or later (all users)
- World Series win bonus
- $10 added to your account
That last one is particularly noteworthy.
Yesterday, FanDuel Sportsbook users likely noticed an extra $10 in their app. Totally gratis. That was a one-time bonus for all users– a sort of wagering stimulus you didn’t know you needed.
FanDuel called it a “no-strings” attached bonus. The money was not available for immediate withdraw, however, and users are required to wager it in order for it to be eligible for withdraw.
And the World Series Win Bonus is messaged as the following:
“Place a $50+ futures wager on any team to win the 2020 MLB World Series and earn a $5 bonus in site credit for each game they win in their first 10 games once the 2020 MLB Season returns (max $50).”
So what we have here is FanDuel Sportsbook joining its peers in serving up a slew of MLB-specific bonuses to bring customers back into the fold.
FanDuel’s sportsbook app is available in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Colorado, Indiana, West Virginia, and soon in Illinois.
