DraftKings promo code for Thursday Night Football
There’s no code necessary to claim the sign-up bonus at DraftKings Sportsbook. Head to the DraftKings site via a DraftKings promo code link on this page, find the sign-up button, and create an account. Once you’ve filled out the registration form, your new account will automatically qualify for whichever welcome bonus applies in your area.
For most users, the welcome bonus will match your first deposit at a rate of 20%, up to $1,000. And on top of that, with a minimum first deposit of $5, you’ll also receive a $50 free bet. That means that a $100 first deposit would net you $20 in bonus funds plus the $50 free bet.
For bettors in Maryland, where online sports betting recently became available, the DraftKings welcome bonus is a “bet $5, get $200” offer, which nets you $200 in free bets when you make a wager of $5 or more with your new DraftKings account. It doesn’t matter if your bet wins or loses; you get the free bets just for wagering.
You won’t be able to withdraw those free bets, and you’ll need to wager them within seven days or they’ll expire. Any winning wagers that you place with free bets do not include the original amount of the free bet in the payout.
To claim the DraftKings welcome bonus, you must be in a state where DraftKings is legal, and you’ll need to be of legal betting age in that state.
DraftKings Thursday Night Football preview
This week’s Thursday Night Football game sees the San Francisco 49ers visit the Seattle Seahawks, live from Lumen Field at 5:15 pm Pacific Time (8:15 Eastern.)
On Sunday, rookie QB Brock Purdy stepped up for the 49ers in a 35-7 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With only a few days’ turnaround, Purdy will be asked to perform in a crucial matchup with major implications for the NFC West. The 49ers currently lead the division with a 9-4 record, while the Seahawks are second at 7-6.
Though Kyle Shanahan’s team has some injury concerns including wide receiver Deebo Samuel, a San Francisco win on Thursday night would see the 49ers clinch the division. The Seahawks, however, will be determined to bounce back after a 30-24 loss at home to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
