    Bet the boost separately for the max...usually around 50 or less. If you want more, bet it again without the boost. Rebets may not be allowed if you've been limited.

    It sounds like, after you click the opt-in link, every bet over $500 stake that you make this weekend, and settles before 3am Monday morning, they will give you one bet boost.

    I think I would be making several $500 bets to get several 50% ones instead of $2500 to get the 100%.

    Maybe I am wrong about getting multiple ones? "One qualifying boost per customer." <-- not certain what that sentence is meant to mean.

    Means what it says. He can only get one boost. So let's say he opts in and during this period and his largest wager is $2,500. He will receive a single 100% profit boost. He can then use that profit boost on any wager up to $250 risk as long as the boosted wager original odds is not more than +1000.

    Must be nice to be able to wager $2,500 at DK. There is nothing that I can bet anywhere close to $2,500. I guess that's why I received a similar offer lately, except that it was $2,500 cumulative for the day to get a $250 free play. Have 4 of those now. Wasn't even easy to wager $2,500 cumulative with my tiny ass limits.

    As for whether it's worth it, it's always worth opting in. But probably not worth adjusting from what you'd normally do too much. If your typical wager is $100 you probably don't want to plunge $2,500 just to get this offer. Or, look for a scalp against another book with decent limits. Maybe you can get it for "free".

    When I first read the offer this is what I was thinking of but getting further down in their Terms and Conditions it gets confusing with max bet $250 and max cashout $2,500. AFAIK I am not limited there, I did the free 5k bet, not for the full amount but as much as I could afford and hit a 2 teamer for $ 2800 so I cashed out most of it. I am in NY where they went live last month so I am on the lookout for exploitable offers. Min odds of -250 doesn't make sense to me, shouldn't it be max odds -250 so that would be the largest favorite you can use with these bets? The way they word it seems opposite.

    Max cashout just means you can't boost +2000 to +4000. Max is +1000 to +2000.

    Minimum odds means they don't want you taking a -1000 favorite for $2,500/250 to make the win "easier". You can do a -250 favorite $2,500/1,000.

    Its confusing to me too Opti - I appreciate your help in trying to figure this one out. They paid me in 2 hours after the first promo which was much faster than the other legal books. Also appreciate the help D2bets

    This makes me happy to see you confused.

    I have struggled with this problem for years here.

    In the rest of the world, lower/worse/smaller/coming in/tightening odds means the payout for your risk is lower. Whether it's -odds or +odds.

    It's a serious problem in trying to communicate between Euro/Asian and US bettors.

    Yeah I understand it now. Too many years with offshore and their rules. Its the same rule just worded differently. These legal books really make you read the fine print on these promos and after the big sign up ones it appears most are small and capped very low. And I would bet if one takes advantage of alot of promos that could lead to getting limits cut possibly or have them taken away all together. And all of them really push the SGP's. Must be profitable for them. I know in NY the tax rate is very high for the operators so it will be interesting to see how profitable they are.

    The worst part of the confusing terms is the books also seem to be trying to encourage people to accept worse welcome bonus offers than they are eligible for where possible.

    Not a tactic I have seen much of ever before in mainstream licensed books.


    And you have not got it wrong. All USA bettors think like you and that one word could definitely mislead some people.

    I was given an nba 100% sgp profit boost yesterday, max bet 50 max odds +1000 boosted to +2000 no other odds restrictions on each leg other than had to be at least 3 legs

    Them and fanduel really give some good promos. Mgm gave me some stuff too like random $50 free bets and i didnt even do anything. Its hard to keep up with the 7 online books we have now and all the different promos.
