How to use your $1,000 risk-free first bet

After you’ve made your deposit for your first real-money wager of up to $1,000. It’s time to place your wager.

Select Michigan from the futures market by navigating to College Basketball > Futures > NCAA Outrights > ‘2021 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship’. 

I select Michigan, add it to my bet slip at +800* and place my first real-money wager of up to $1,000 on Michigan. 

*odds correct at the time of writing at 04:14 EST on Tuesday, March 16th, 2021.

If Michigan wins then you get paid $9,000 ($1,000 free bet value + $8,000 winnings).

This is where FanDuel Sportsbook is different from other sportsbooks. Their offer pays cash value on the free bet value if your free bet cashes.

You don’t have to place $1,000. If you only want to bet $10, $100, or even $500 then payouts will be adjusted. $1,000 is used as an example stake for customers wanting to take full advantage of the maximum risk-free first bet available.

Please remember to gamble responsibly.
