Best Maine Sportsbook Promos & Bonuses

The best promo codes and deposit bonuses available at Maine sportsbooks.

A handful of states have sports betting legislation in flux as 2022 marches on. Maine, on the other hand, is close. July 31 saw see the Pine Tree State make history as the latest state to introduce mobile and retail sports wagering. Sports betting licenses and opportunities in Maine will be limited to specific state tribes, and the competition for space in the state’s legal wagering landscape is expected to be fierce. Here's a look at the top sports betting bonuses that will be available to Maine-based players.

Maine Sports Betting Bonuses

Here's a look at the current sign-up bonuses for the most prominent sports betting sites expected to launch in Maine in the near future:

Caesars Maine Bonuses

If your first qualifying wager loses, Caesars will credit you a free bet equal to the value of your first wager up to $1,250, plus get 1,000 Tier Credits and 1,000 Reward Credits® win or lose. Your Free Bet is for one-time use within 14 days and cannot be divided across multiple wagers.

BetMGM Maine Bonuses

If your first qualifying bet loses and it is in an amount greater than $50, you will receive five (5) free bets back in equal denominations of 20% of the total amount of the qualifying bet up to $1,000. If your qualifying bet loses and it is less than $50, you will receive a single free bet back in a single denomination equaling the total amount of the qualifying bet. Example: If you place a $1,000 qualifying bet and your bet loses, you will receive five (5) $200 free bets. If you place a $49 bet and lose, you will receive one $49 free bet.

FanDuel Maine Bonuses

FanDuel regularly changes its welcome bonus, especially during peak sports seasons like the NFL. The latest offer from FanDuel is a "No Sweat First Bet" of $1,000. If your first bet loses, FanDuel will offer you a free bet credit in the equal amount of your first bet up to $1,000. If your first bet wins, you win.

DraftKings Maine Bonuses

At DraftKings, you will receive a $50 free bet with a minimum deposit of $5. If you don’t have the bankroll to make a more extensive first deposit, this is a humble offer. Still, far from generous considering, DK is a multi-billion dollar industry giant. The more significant offer DraftKings features is a 20% first deposit match up to $1,000. In this case, you must deposit $5,000 to be eligible to receive the maximum possible bonus amount of $1,000. This is not a reasonable offer for the casual bettor.

PointsBet Maine Bonuses

PointsBet offers new players a $100 risk-free bet on each of their first five days as an account holder. Their deal is of the "if you don't use it, you lose it" type, so to get the most out of this, you must be super active in your first week as a player. PointsBet used to be one of the most generous betting sites with their new player promos, but as the industry as a whole has cut back on promotions, so has PointsBet.

Barstool Maine Bonuses

Barstool Sportsbook has an average sign-up bonus offering a $1,000 risk-free bet for new users in most regions. They try and word it differently sometimes calling it a “2 for 1” but it’s a standard risk-free new player bonus. With the risk-free bet, you only get money back if your first bet loses, and they match your first bet, not deposit, up to $1,000.

Sports to Bet on with Maine Bonuses

It will come as no surprise to see a rather extensive list of major professional and amateur sports available to Maine bettors; here are the marquee sports on which they'll be able to wager:

NFL

Sports in these parts don't get much more marquee than football – and the sheer number of NFL betting opportunities will make Maine residents dizzy with delight. Every major sports betting site offers hundreds of wagering plays for every regular season and playoff game – culminating in a veritable buffet (yum!) of betting options for the Super Bowl.

NCAA Football

It might not have the same prestige as the NFL – or the number of betting markets, for that matter – but college football is still one of the most popular sports in North America from a wagering standpoint. Maine bettors will have access to a 1-2 punch of basic betting markets (moneyline, spread and O/U) and various team and other prop plays.

NBA

What do Maine bettors do when the last football pass of the 2022/23 season has been thrown? Pivot to basketball, of course! And based on how enormous the NBA prop markets have become for the majority of major players in the U.S. sports betting space, Maine wagerers will have plenty of choice when it comes to the hardcourt.

NCAA Basketball

Maine's representation in the Division I men's basketball scene is sparse – as in, the Maine Black Bears are the only program in the state above Division III. And yet, there's little doubt that bettors from the Pine Tree State will flock in droves to their betting apps once the NCAA hoops season gets rolling – and in even greater numbers for March Madness, of course.

MLB

Those summer months can be l-o-n-g – but only if you aren't a baseball fan. Maine residents who favor America's Pastime will be blessed with hundreds of betting markets for every regular-season and playoff game across the Major League Baseball schedule – and with the emergence of micro-betting, you might even be able to wager on the outcome of an individual pitch.

NHL

Maine's NCAA hockey team has had plenty of success in the America East Conference over the years – and we like the chances of that puck passion spilling over into the sports betting sphere. NHL betting markets have never been this plentiful, with moneyline, puckline and O/U plays accompanied by an ever-growing selection of team and individual player props.

Golf

There's a lot to like about golf wagering, from the chance to hit a longshot outright play to betting on which players will make or miss the cut, or even if the tournament will feature a hole-in-one. Whether you're a casual observer or golf-obsessed, betting on events can make a good golf viewing experience great – and a great experience even greater.

Soccer

Maine residents might have to dig a little deeper to find them on most U.S. regulated sports betting apps, but the soccer markets are there. And once they'll do discover them, they'll be floored – not only at the number of leagues and competitions covered by most sportsbooks, but by the sheer number of betting opportunities attached to the majority of notable matches.

Bet Responsibly with Maine Promos

Like most states, Maine has put safeguards in place to ensure that bettors have a way out of any potential trouble spots.

Maine Sportsbook Promos FAQs

What Is a Free Bet Offer?

Many sportsbooks will offer you a free bet or several free bets as a reward for choosing them ahead of the competition. However, you should not expect a free bet offer to come with no strings attached. You will generally have to deposit your own money to unlock the free bet and then place several bets at a specific minimum set of odds before you can make a withdrawal.

What Is a Betting Bonus?

Betting bonuses are awarded to new players to encourage them to sign up or to existing players so they remain loyal. They include match deposit bonuses, reload bonuses, boosted odds bonuses, and much more. They vary from one sportsbook to the next, so you should always shop around for the most appealing free bets and sign up for multiple books to enjoy several free bet offers. Always check the terms and conditions attached to free bets before accepting them.

What Is a Rollover Requirement?

This refers to the number of bets you must place before you are permitted to make a withdrawal. It applies to sign-up free bet bonuses and reload free bet bonuses. A typical rollover requirement would be 6x, which means you must wager your credit six times (place at least six bets) at a certain minimum price before you can make a withdrawal. The rollover requirement generally applies to the cash you deposit as well as the free bets you receive.
