There are a few things to keep in mind though when utilizing this promotion from DraftKings. If you win your $5 bet and receive your $280 in free bets, be sure to use them within 7 days. Any free bets remaining in your account after 7 days will be forfeited.
Also, make sure that you place your $5 bet on a moneyline before the game kicks off. Live betting tickets are not allowed as part of this promotion.
All participants must be 21 years of age or older and be legal residents of the state of Louisiana. All registrants will have their location and identity verified before they can deposit any funds into their DraftKings Sportsbook account.
Keep in mind that 8 parishes in the state of Louisiana did NOT approve sports betting. Those parishes are Caldwell, Catahoula, Franklin, LaSalle, Sabine, Union, West Carroll, and Winn. This means that if you live in one of those parishes, you’ll have to drive to one of the 56 parishes in the state that voted to legalize online sports betting to take advantage of this offer.
Since online sports betting just went live in Louisiana, most of the signups within the state will be new to DraftKings or new to sports betting altogether. With that being said, let’s go over some of the best parts of betting with DraftKings:
Player Prop Bet Options - One of the things we love most about DraftKings is their vast amount of player props in major sports. This is huge because, with player props, sports bettors are no longer limited to just sides and totals. Thanks to prop betting, you can place bets on how well your favorite players will do in each game!
Easy to Use App - DraftKings invested a ton of resources to create one of the fastest sports betting apps in the industry. Even Louisiana residents that are newer to sports betting will find the DraftKings app easy to navigate. The app is available for both iOS and Android devices.
Access to Casino and DFS - With a DraftKings account, you aren’t just limited to a world-class sportsbook. You’ll also have access to tons of Daily Fantasy games and a casino that is constantly adding new features. DraftKings is a one-stop shop for all your gambling pleasures.
Lots of Cashier Options - When it comes time to reload your account or withdraw some winnings, DraftKings gives you plenty of options. They accept Credit Cards, Debit Cards, Bank Transfers, and PayPal.
Live Betting in All Sports - Lots of sports bettors these days prefer to bet on games while they are happening instead of before they start. This allows them to get a feel for how the game is going before investing. DraftKings offers live betting on every sport. All you have to do is click on the “Live In-Game” button while on the DraftKings website or mobile app.
If you’re a new sports bettor in Louisiana, we highly encourage you to always shop around to get the best of the number on all of your bets. You wouldn’t pay $3.50 for gas when the station across the street is selling it for $3.00. By that same token, you shouldn’t bet on the New Orleans Pelicans at -3 if another sportsbook within the state has them at -2.
The key is to get access to as many different sets of point spreads as possible. One way to do that is to sign up with all the online sportsbooks that have just gone live. In addition to DraftKings, sign up with FanDuel in Louisiana, Caesars in Louisiana, and BetMGM in Louisiana to get all of the bonus offers that you can.
