How to Claim DraftKings bonus bets

DraftKings has two sportsbook promos in North Carolina. One is for a Deposit $5, Get $50 bonus bet. The second is a Bet $5, Get $250 in bonus bets.

Here are the steps to take to claim both DraftKings bonus bet offers.

  1. Download DraftKings mobile app from the Apple Store OR Google Play for Android.
  2. Register a new account by clicking the “SIGN UP NOW” button above. No promo code is required.
  3. Make a first deposit of at least $5 to claim the first $50 bonus bet.
  4. Place a minimum first bet of $5 using real money to claim a fourth $250 in bonus bets.

This offer is valid for one customer only, may not be combined with any other offer, and must be claimed between Noon ET on March 11 and 11:59 PM ET on March 31.

 Terms and conditions to note

The following terms are worth noting when considering how to approach DraftKings’ offer.

– $250 is issued as ten (10) $25 bonus bets.

– Bonus Bets are single-use, non-cashable, non-withdrawable, and must be wagered 1x before winnings can be withdrawn.

– Your stake is not included in winnings.

– Your DraftKings NC Sportsbook Bonus Bets expire 7 days (168 hours) after being issued into your new account.

– Must be 21 and have a valid DraftKings NC account.

20% Deposit Match up to $1,000

DraftKings has a third way to grab bonus betting credits: a deposit match offer. Consumers in North Carolina can be lavished with as much as $1,300 in Bonuses this way:

  • $250 in postlaunch bonus bets for placing a $5 bet between March 11-31.
  • $50 Bonus Bet between now and March 11 when you make a minimum $5 deposit.
  • $1,000 in the form of a 20% match on your first deposit.

That means the bigger your first deposit, the larger the DraftKings Bonus Bet you’ll see in your account.

Why do we love deposit matches?

Why do we love deposit matches? Simple: they’re not tied to a wager. It doesn’t matter if your first bet wins or loses–get your deposit match funds just for being a DraftKings NC customer.

When you make your deposit with DraftKings, 20% of that amount will be matched by the sports betting company up to $1,000. For example:

  • Make a $50 deposit, and receive a bonus bet valued at $10.
  • Make a $500 deposit, and get $100 in bonus bets.
  • Make a $1,000 deposit, receive $200 in bonus bets.
  • Start off with a $5000 first deposit, and get $1,000 from DraftKings in bonus bet credits.
