New DraftKings DFS users can receive a $500 bonus on a first deposit along with a chance to play for free for $1 million.
The 2019 NFL season is upon us so that means it’s time to play some daily fantasy football.
DraftKings is still the number one daily fantasy sports site in the land and to get new users ready for the season, they have introduced a 20% up to $500 bonus on a first deposit, available for a limited time until September 16.
And if that wasn’t enough, players who deposit prior to September 5 can also play for free for a chance to win $1 million.
Up to $500 on a first deposit
The featured part of the DraftKings DFS bonus available for the first half of September is a 20% match bonus on your first deposit. The minimum deposit is just $5 but to receive the full bonus you must deposit $2,500. If you don’t have that much laying around, that’s ok, as any deposit amount will be matched 20% in bonus.
Your bonus funds will be credited to your account once your deposit has been made.
From there, the clearance rate will depend on whether you are clearing your bonus through daily fantasy sports play or through the casino/sportsbook (which is only available to users in some states).
- $1 released for every $25 played in DFS or the sportsbook
- $1 released for every $60 played in the DraftKings casino.
When playing daily fantasy sports, the bonus is worth approximately 40% cashback on fees and 4% in the sportsbook. In the DraftKings Casino, you will add approximately 1.67% to your player return.
Even if you deposit prior to the end of the promo, make sure you keep playing if you want to clear the full bonus. In order to receive the entire bonus, you must meet the terms of the bonus by the end of 2019. Any bonus remaining after December 31, 2019 will expire.
Free entry for a chance at $1 million
The 20% up to $500 bonus offer is only available until September 16. But if you really want to sweeten your value, you should try to make your deposit by September 5th.
Doing so will ensure that you can participate in the Fantasy Kickoff Millionaire Contest for free. First-time depositors will receive a free $10 ticket to play in the event.
If you are lucky enough to finish first, you will receive $1 million. Make sure to use you your ticket by September 5 at 8:20 PM ET.
