FanDuel’s mobile sportsbook app is coming to New York. To commemorate this milestone, FanDuel New York is offering a pre-launch welcome bonus for new users. (Existing customers are out of luck. This is not for you.) Use the FanDuel NY promo code to claim $100 in free bets.
Here’s how it works. Site credits that FanDuel adds to bettors’ accounts are only valid for seven days after FanDuel goes live. So, new bettors must plan their early bets out to ensure they don’t let this pre-launch offer go to waste.
FanDuel New York Pre-Launch Bonus Terms And Conditions
There are some terms and conditions to be aware of before trying to get the bonus of $100 in free bets.
The promo offer is not $100 in cash that can be withdrawn and used for something else. Bettors have to use the $100 in free bets for sports betting at FanDuel New York.
Also, it is only available to new users. If you have an account in another state, you are not eligible for this bonus in New York. FanDuel will give only one pre-launch bonus to each bettor. In other words, bettors cannot create more than one account in an attempt to claim more than $100 in free bets.
When Will FanDuel NY Launch?
This is the epitome of a limited-time offer. The $100 in free bets will be available until the FanDuel NY app officially launches at 9 am ET on Saturday, Jan. 8. After tomorrow, the FanDuel NY bonus will be a risk-free bet up to $1000, requiring a deposit to claim. The free bet offer doesn’t require a deposit at all, just registration and sign up.
New York’s New Problem Gambling Tools
Every mobile sportsbook comes with responsible gaming tools. These include deposit, wager, and time limits that bettors can set in their accounts. Bettors can also put themselves on voluntary self-exclusion lists. While bettors can self-exclude at retail casinos, retail casino employees can’t necessarily tell whether someone is a problem gambler by looking at them. In contrast, gambling addicts are much easier to identify. However, a mobile sportsbook account with self-exclusion settings can lock a bettor out reliably.
So, mobile sports betting in New York will allow New York regulators to track and treat problem gamblers in ways that were previously unavailable. It was one of Senator Addabbo’s key reasons for pushing for legalized mobile sports betting. Combined with the revenue leaking to New Jersey, there were more reasons to legalize mobile sports betting than not.
