Top Wisconsin Sports Betting Promos

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

Wisconsin lawmakers have entered into gaming compacts with all 11 Wisconsin Native American tribes – and with only one having actually introduced sports betting as of June 2022, there’s plenty of room for expansion. In the meantime, though, Wisconsinites have limited sports wagering options at their disposal for the 2022 NFL season. Here's a look at the top sports betting bonuses that could be available to Wisconsin-based players down the road.

Wisconsin Sports Betting Bonuses

With just one sportsbook – and a local tribal-run book, at that – in operation at present, here's a look at current bonuses for other marquee sportsbooks that could join the Wisconsin sports betting landscape at some point:

Caesars Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin Bonuses

It will come as no surprise to see a rather extensive list of major professional and amateur sports available to Wisconsin bettors; here are the marquee sports on which WI residents can wager:

NFL

Sports bettors might not be able to make in-game wagers at Lambeau Field, but third-party operators will be lining up for partnership agreements if the opportunity ever presents itself. The Green Bay Packers are one of the most revered franchises in football, and even basic signage deals would be massive for prospective sportsbook partners.

NCAA Football

There's a long tradition of college football support in The Badger State – but residents and visitors are limited in which NCAA teams they can bet on within state borders. WI regulations prohibit wagers on any team based in Wisconsin (sorry, Badgers fans), though that still leaves more than 100 FBS teams in the betting mix for the majority of the college football season.

NBA

The Milwaukee Bucks have a recent NBA title, a deliriously loyal fan base and one of the biggest superstars on the planet in Giannis Antetokounmpo. They also have the first sportsbook partnership of any pro team in the state, entering a multi-year agreement with Betway in February 2022. The deal makes Betway the team’s official gaming partner.

NCAA Basketball

Wisconsin college basketball bettors face the same restrictions as their NCAA football brethren: No betting on in-state teams. But the Oneida Casino Sportsbook app does offer a healthy dose of markets for the rest of the major NCAA Division I men's programs – and that number increases come March Madness time, so even casual hoops bettors can get their fix.

MLB

Will the Milwaukee Brewers follow the example set by the NL-rival Washington Nationals? The Nats are the first Major League Baseball team whose stadium is connected to a retail sports betting venue (BetMGM Sportsbook). The Brewers’ home park, American Family Field, recently underwent a brand change and would likely welcome sports betting partners.

NHL

It almost seems strange that a northern state like Wisconsin doesn't have a National Hockey League franchise – but there's still a strong hockey fandom here. And betting on the NHL and other notable hockey leagues is a great way to make the winter seem a little shorter. Bettors have access to a wide range of betting options, including pucklines, totals and props.

Golf

While the other major professional sports all have five-to-nine-month calendars, golf runs all year long – making it the perfect sport for bettors who like having action year-round. Wisconsin customers have access to dozens of markets for most major golf tournaments, and even more betting options when it comes to the year's four PGA Tour major championships.

Soccer

Speaking of sports that run for the entire calendar year, soccer's standing as a globally popular sport is great news for Wisconsinites who love a good old-fashioned footy matchup. And there's extra incentive to embrace the sport's ample betting profile in 2022, with the World Cup taking place across parts of November and December.

Wisconsin 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.
