Unwrap College Bowl Game Betting With A $50 Free Bet From DraftKings Sportsbook

Posted By Bart Shirley on December 24, 2018 - Last Updated on December 21, 2018

Christmas is a time of generosity and giving. In that vein, DraftKings Sportsbook is giving any players who sign up during the final week of 2018 a $50 free bet.

The promotion will become active on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) and continue through New Year’s Day (Jan. 1).

How the DraftKings holiday bonus works

As we said, this is a no-brainer to do. A $50 free bet is hard to find most days of the week.

This deal will run concurrently with the standard offer DraftKings has for new members. The sportsbook will match a player’s first bet up to $500.

So, for every dollar on that initial wager, players will get one more to use as they wish. It’s a simple deal, but one that has an easily seen upside.

To review, new players can get up to $550 from DraftKings this holiday season. Santa Claus himself would struggle to beat that kind of deal.

For new DraftKings users, simply open an account, and $50 will be awarded to you for all your betting needs.

Basically, you’ll be sitting pretty for the busy holiday week ahead.

And we do mean busy: There are bowl games and NFL games and NBA games aplenty from Christmas to New Year’s.

Catch all the bowl game action at DraftKings Sportsbook

Yes, the week of Dec. 24-Jan. 1 is a great time to start betting sports. There are numerous opportunities to make big scores on the slate of college football bowl betting that will run during that period.

DraftKings Sportsbook will have wagering options for every single bowl game to come with maybe a few odds boost mixed in.

The bowl games scheduled for this week are outlined below. (All point spreads are as of Friday, Dec. 21 at DraftKings.)
