FanDuel Ohio promo code & launch bonus
For those who don’t redeem the pre-launch offer between now and Jan. 1, there will be other FanDuel promotions available once you create an account. We expect that all users in Ohio (both pre-launch users and not) will be eligible to receive FanDuel’s standard new-user bonus, which is a “no sweat first bet” of up to $1,000. If your first bet with FanDuel loses, no sweat, FanDuel will refund you the full amount, up to $1,000.
To get started, you’ll want to place a wager of at least $5 on any sporting event when Jan. 1 rolls around. If your bet loses, you will receive a refund in betting credits.
What to know before sports betting launches in the Buckeye State
To participate in sports betting in Ohio, you must be 21 or older and located within the state’s borders. Sportsbooks will use geolocation technology to verify your location.
Both online and retail sports betting will be legal in the state. Retail sportsbooks, however, will only be present in Ohio counties of more than 50,000 people, and there is a maximum of five retail locations within a county’s boundaries. Legislation calls for the state to issue 40 retail sports betting licenses to various sports venues and casinos. It’s most likely that the state’s four major casinos, located in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Toledo and Columbus, will house retail sportsbooks.
Ohioans will be able to bet on all major sports, including NFL, MLB, NHL, college football and NBA. This means you can bet on Ohio sports teams like the Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Ohio State Buckeyes, Cleveland Cavaliers, Cleveland Guardians, Cincinnati Reds, and Columbus Blue Jackets..
