The best promo codes and deposit bonuses available at NY sportsbooks.
The Empire State has quickly emerged as a powerhouse in the legal sports betting landscape – and as the market continues to mature, you can expect to see even more New Yorkers joining the fray in the coming months and years. Here's a look at the top sports betting bonuses available to New York-based players.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The offer most players will find at WynnBET is a paltry $100 bet & get. The silver lining is the promo is pretty simple and accessible for casual players. Bet $100 with odds of -120 or greater and get a $100 free bet. Free bets will expire ten (10) days after being credited. Free bets are only valid on sporting events with odds of -150 or greater (for example, -100, +120). Free bets also aren't valid for live betting.
BetRivers goes with a deposit match up to $250, which is nice as it gives you free money to play with instead of risk-free bets that only award you if your first bet is graded a loser. Unfortunately, $250 is low compared to the industry standard.

It will come as no surprise to see a rather extensive list of major professional and amateur sports available to NY bettors; here are the marquee sports on which New Yorkers can wager:
New Yorkers might "host" a pair of NFL teams that don't actually play within state borders, but strong feelings for the Giants and Jets should result in plenty of betting action on both teams. New Yorkers are rabid about their professional football, so don't be surprised to see routinely big fall handles.
Bettors looking for a Saturday fix ahead of NFL Sunday need only turn to the college football world, where betting interest continues to skyrocket. The only catch for NY natives and visitors: They're not permitted to wager on any New York-based college team, no matter where that team is playing.
Feeling like it's the Knicks' year? Sure you are! And thanks to a wide variety of major sports betting companies operating within state lines, you can make any number of Knicks-related mistakes (er, we mean bets) not only during the campaign, but in the offseason, as well.
As with football, New Yorkers are not permitted to place wagers on teams based within the Empire State. Still, that's a small impediment in an otherwise robust betting market that is sure to pick up in NY as the top collegiate teams in the country battle for a prime spot in the March Madness bracket.
Nothing generates more hometown handle than when a local team is a championship fave. And New Yorkers have two shots at such an occurrence every MLB season, with the Yankees and Mets both carrying high expectations on a regular basis. Fill that summer betting void with a little baseball!
New York is used to doing professional sports in pairs; the state boasts two NFL teams, two MLB teams, and two NHL teams. And while the Rangers and Islanders likely won't draw the same level of betting interest as their hoops or gridiron brethren, the NHL is growing in wagering interest overall.
Tennis, anyone? It's easy to see why this is one of the most popular individual sports to bet on, with hundreds of markets available for the majority of meaningful matches. Things get particularly fun in late August and early September, when Flushing, N.Y. hosts the U.S. Open.
Soccer bettors have dozens of renowned leagues around the world to choose from – including Major League Soccer, which boasts a pair of NY-based teams (New York City FC, New York Red Bulls). And while soccer snobs might snub it, MLS winnings are just as good any other sport.
Like most states, New York’s state gaming authority has put safeguards in place to ensure that bettors have a way out of any potential trouble spots.
Bettors have the option of self-exclusion, which not only prevents them from accessing the sportsbook, but from playing on the same betting site in any other regulated state. Players can also set session limits along with, daily, weekly or monthly deposit caps depending on how restrictive they want to be.
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.
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.
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.
