DraftKings promo code for Christmas Day
There’s no code necessary to claim the DraftKings welcome bonus. Just select a DraftKings promo code link on this page to navigate to the DraftKings homepage, click the sign-up button and fill out the form to register for an account.
Then, when you make your first deposit, your account will qualify for a 20% matching bonus up to a maximum of $1,000. You will also be eligible for a $50 free bet with a first deposit of $5 or more. These bonuses stack, meaning a first deposit of $200 would result in $40 in matching bonus funds plus the $50 free bet.
You will also receive a “bet $5 to win $150” promo token to be used on any NFL or NBA moneyline wager. The promo wager is paid out in DraftKings free bet tokens.
Note that in Maryland, the bonus is a “bet $5, get $200” promo, meaning new users can receive $200 in free bets with an initial wager of $5 or more; the deposit bonus does not apply.
To claim the DraftKings bonus, you must be located in a state where DraftKings is legal and be of legal betting age in that state.
DraftKings Sportsbook Christmas NFL & NBA preview
This Christmas Day, both football and basketball fans will be feeling the holiday spirit.
There are three NFL games scheduled for Dec. 25, starting with a run-in between the Green Bay Packers (+3.5 underdogs on the point spread, +160 on the moneyline) and the Miami Dolphins (-3.5, -190), kicking off at 1 p.m. ET at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. At 4:30 p.m. ET, the Denver Broncos (-3, -155) visit the Los Angeles Rams (+3, +135) before a Sunday Night Football encounter between Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-7.5, -380) and the Arizona Cardinals (+7.5, +310).
Meanwhile, basketball fans have five NBA games to look forward to. The highlight for many will be a headline matchup between two top teams in the Eastern Conference, the Milwaukee Bucks (+4, +140) and the Boston Celtics (-4, -165), who meet at 5 p.m. ET in what should be a lively TD Garden.
Additionally, Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies (-4, -165) head to the Bay Area to face the Golden State Warriors (+4, +140) in the first meeting for the two teams since the Western Conference semifinal series, which the Warriors won 4-2. Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns (+2.5, +120) visit the Denver Nuggets (-2.5. -140) in a game between two teams gunning for the top spot in a wide-open Western Conference, and the Philadelphia 76ers (-2, -135) face the New York Knicks (+2, +115).
And even if Los Angeles and Dallas are not exactly tearing up the West right now, LeBron versus Luka still promises to be exciting as the Lakers (+7.5, +250) visit the Mavericks (-7.5, -300).
