FanDuel Sportsbook launched a new $1,000 No Sweat First Bet promo that gives new customers free bets up to $1,000 if their first wager loses. 

Similar to the previous FanDuel risk-free bet promotion, your first bet is protected up to $1,000. If you lose, you'll be refunded in free bets equal to the amount of your first wager up to the limit.

Here's how to get the promo:

  1. Register for a FanDuel Sportsbook account.
  2. Deposit at least $10.
  3. Place your first bet on any event.
    1. If your bet wins, congrats! You are paid out as usual and can continue betting or withdraw your money.
    2. If your first bet loses, you will receive free bets totaling the amount of your first wager up to $1,000

Though FanDuel calls them free bets, they work more like site credit. When placing a bet, you can choose how much of your total free bet amount that you want to use on that specific wager—meaning you can split up the free bets however you'd like.

The site credit/free bets only have a 1x playthrough requirement so you can withdraw any winnings from them immediately.

The FanDuel No Sweat First Bet is one of the best sportsbook promotions currently available mostly because of its value. The only other betting offer with a higher value is the PointsBet promo of 2 risk-free bets up to $2,000.

If you do receive the free bets from the FanDuel promo, be sure to use them within 14 days of them hitting your account. You only have to bet them one time before you can withdraw the winnings.

Note that the promotion is not currently available in all states that FanDuel operates in. A few states have other offers currently, including:

  • FanDuel Colorado Promo: 100% deposit match up to $250. Your first deposit will be matched dollar for dollar up to the limit.
  • FanDuel Indiana Promo: Bet $5 and get $150 in free bets, regardless of whether your first bet wins or loses.
  • FanDuel Virginia Promo: First bet matched up to $250. Place your first bet and FanDuel will match it in free bets up to $250.

To take advantage of any of the new FanDuel offers, use our exclusive link, download the app (if you're on mobile), and register for an account. No FanDuel promo code is required to access any of the offers—all new customers are automatically eligible.
