Start fast. DraftKings Sportsbook has seemingly adopted the same mantra of football coaches everywhere by rolling out a promotion for NFL Week 1 that can help new customers turn a $5 wager into $200. New players can pick any bet from the Steelers vs. Bengals Week 1 showdown (or any other game too) to earn the bonus. No DraftKings promo code needed.
And if that’s not enough, the DraftKings Sportsbook PA promotion is a stackable offer. New players can combine it with an existing incentive to earn an additional total of up to $1,050 thanks to a promo code from PlayPA.
The next step is to simply select a wager for the promotional bet. Any $5 bet on an NFL, college football, or UFC market qualifies for the $200 bonus.
