FanDuel Dishing Out Free Money To Illinois Sports Bettors Amid Launch

Written By Joe Boozell on August 31, 2020Last Updated on February 25, 2021

The fourth online casino in the Prairie State, FanDuel Par-A-Dice, debuted on Friday in Illinois.

FanDuel joins DraftKings and BetRivers in what might soon be a crowded area. Illinois Governor J. The in-person registration condition was just lifted by B. Pritzker until at least September 19, so the market may be affected for the foreseeable future.

As expected, FanDuel is aggressively pursuing Illinois sports bettors right off the bat.

Here’s what FanDuel Sportsbook has to offer in Illinois.

Free$ 50 for new and existing users,$ 500 bonus bet

New users can wager up to$ 500, and if they lose, their money will be refunded in site credit. The cash is theirs if they triumph.

The bonus wager expires on August 31 in accordance with the promotion & rsquo’s official terms and conditions. Don & rsquo, however, shouldn’t be surprised if the offer is extended given the possibility that mobile registration could expire on September 19.

Additionally, FanDuel is providing new Illinois sports bettors with a costless$ 50 sign-up bonus. Existing users were probably pleased to receive an email last week about a manual adjustment & rdquo made to their accounts, adding$ 50 to the balance.

FanDuel is also offering a$ 50 referral bonus as an incentive to spread the word. Therefore, you both receive$ 50 in site breaks if someone uses your website to sign up for the book.

Also worth noting: On the day that FanDuel launched in Illinois, DraftKings just so happened to offer existing users a free $50 bet.

The rivalry is genuine.

profitable personal range increases

FanDuel has been operating in Illinois for around three days and has already provided two sizable collection increases.

On Friday, FD gave users the chance to bet $50 on the Cubs to score at least one run at even odds. The bet cashed with Anthony Rizzo’s home run in the first inning against the Reds.

FanDuel increased the odds for Sunday & rsquo’s Clippers vs. Mavericks game to + 99 at – 110. Therefore, opportunistic gamblers who wager a maximum of$ 50 effectively walked away with$ 45.45 for free.

It & rsquo is an educated guess that more of these are likely to appear soon. Sporting punters in Illinois should keep an eye out.

Users can also choose from an alluring futures choice on FanDuel.

If you wager$ 50 or more on Super Bowl futures, FanDuel will give you$ 5 for each regular-season victory up to a maximum of$ 50.

Let’s say you bet$ 50 on the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl at this very moment. You & rsquo will break even if they win 10 games but don’t win the Super Bowl.

If the Chiefs won, say, 12 games but were unable to repeat as champions because of the$ 50 cap, you wouldn’t benefit. However, it & rsquo is a nice inducement to place an investment wager in the future.

FanDuel lines are a welcome addition to the Illinois industry.

BetRivers SportsBefore FanDuel & rsquo launched, and DraftKings were the only online Illinois books. Both use Kambi odds. By 2021, DK may leave Kambi, but before Friday, Illinois sports punters are searching. Shopping for the best deals was just a waste of time.

The problem is the same for retail books as it is for five Illinois & rsquo and six brick-and-mortar sportsbooks that use Kambi odds.

FanDuel is currently available online, but it doesn’t use Kambi conflict, which is a welcome change for online shoppers.

You & rsquo, while it is unclear how many bettors will actively look for the best lines, you would have to assume that at least a sizable portion will.

These people are also anticipating PointsBet & rsquo’s Illinois launch, which appears to be on the horizon.

Also, a quick word about the websites themselves. The absence of an iOS app didn’t seem to be a big deal when BetRivers was the only smart book available in Illinois.

The difference is obvious today that FanDuel and DraftKings are present in Lincoln. Although the programs have a more contemporary feel, the BR smart website doesn’t load andnbsp as quickly as FD or DK.

According to BetRivers, an iOS game is on the way. However, as the Illinois opposition intensifies, but would consumer expectations.
