Tennessee is a few weeks away from officially launching sports betting! DraftKings is one of the few sportsbooks that will be entering the Volunteer State on the first day, trying to capitalize on the early market, as the sportsbook is offering a $50 risk-free bet when they sign-up before November 1.
When you sign-up for DraftKings in October, they will offer you a $50 free bet that will be available in your account for up to seven days after the launch. Existing DraftKings customers are also able to take advantage of the free-bet when they are physically in Tennessee.
When you register in October, you will see the $50 risk-free bet in your account after November 1, and when DraftKings officially launches. Make sure you sign-up right now to take advantage of the $50 pre-launch offer!
$1,000 Sign-Up Bonus in November (Automatically Applies to Account)
Not only is DraftKings offering a $50 risk-free bet when you sing-up in October, but you can also take advantage of the two sign-up bonuses worth up to $1,000!
The first bonus is a $500 risk-free bet. When you deposit at least $10 into your DraftKings account, you will qualify up for a risk-free bet up to $500. If you bet $100 and it wins, then you can keep the earnings. However, if it loses, DraftKings will credit you $100 in the next two business days.
The second bonus is a 20% deposit match worth up to $500. When you make your first deposit into your DraftKings account, they all an additional 20% on top of what you deposited. To fully take advantage of the deposit match, you will need to deposit $2,500 into your account. You will need to deposit a minimum of $10 as well.
DraftKings does have a play-through rule when earning rewards from the bonuses. To withdraw the bonus funds from your account, you will need to bet the amount you were rewarded. If you received a $100 credit from your risk-free bet, then you will need to bet at least $100 to qualify to withdraw your earnings.
DraftKings in Tennessee
Tennessee sports betting is going to look a bit different compared to other states. The Volunteer State does not have any physical casinos, so that all sports betting will be done online. Usually, when states legalize sports betting, operators must partner with a casino to enter a new market. From there, they can launch a mobile betting app for the state.
Tennessee will be different as a casino partner will be unnecessary to enter the state. DraftKings will be one of the first sportsbooks to enter the market this November, and their mobile app will be available right away.
Risk-Free Best Bet
Your pre-launch free bet won’t be available until November, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look at a game to use that bet on!
The Titans play the Bears at home on November 8, which might be a great chance to put that free-bet to use. The Titans should be healthy leading up to the matchup as they play the Texans, have a bye, and then play the Bengals before seeing Chicago. The Bears have back to back road games against the Panther and Rams before playing the Saints at home.
As of writing this, the lookahead line is Titans -3. This could be a good situational matchup heading into that week for a chance to earn an additional $50 using your free-bet.
