Since it first welcomed mobile sports betting in January 2022, New York has become one of the most popular states in the country for sports betting. That shouldn’t be a surprise since it’s one of the most populated states in the country. It’s also a state that’s loaded with pro sports franchises, big-time college programs, and passionate sports fans.
If you include the New York Jets and Giants (who technically play in New Jersey), the Empire State has nine franchises in the four major sports leagues. New York has at least two teams in MLB, the NFL, the NBA, and the NHL. All nine of those franchises are well-supported with passionate fans who stand by their team through thick and thin.
FanDuel Sportsbook is one of the platforms that has helped to make mobile and online betting so popular in the state of New York. After getting its start with Daily Fantasy Sports, FanDuel quickly added sports betting to its repertoire and is now among the most popular sportsbooks, offering great bonuses and promotions that compare favorably with most of the sports betting platforms in the industry. That includes its welcome offer for new users in the state of New York.
FanDuel’s welcome bonus for new users is among the best available to bettors in New York State. It has surely helped FanDuel to become one of the most popular platforms in a state that has fully embraced mobile sports betting. After all, who could say no to $200 in bonus bets after making just a $5 wager?
Almost immediately after a new user places a $5 bet on the FanDuel Sportsbook platform, their account is credited with $200 in bonus bets. That $5 bet can be on any team, any sport, or any event, as long as the bet isn’t cashed out early. After that, the fun can really start because the new user has $200 in bonus bets to play with on the platform.
Outside of a round-robin or same-game-parlay-plus bet, the bonus funds can be used for any bet. The profits from those bonus bets will become cash in your FanDuel account that can be withdrawn as a profit. Just keep in mind that the $200 in bonus bets need to be used within seven days.
Of course, once you get started on FanDuel, there will be plenty more promotions available. FanDuel offers boosts on same-game parlays and other bets on a daily basis. New promos and opportunities come up on a daily basis, so you never know what great offers you’re going to find when becoming a regular FanDuel user.
New York is one of just two states that have three NFL teams. Even if the Jets and Giants play their home games in New Jersey, their fan bases are scattered throughout the state of New York, which means they are considered a true New York team. Along with the Buffalo Bills, there are three New York NFL teams that fans can be on every week.
The Bills, of course, are legitimate Super Bowl contenders behind Josh Allen, so many of the Buffalo faithful are banking on the Bills making a deep playoff run. While the Giants have fallen on hard times this season, Brian Daboll was Coach of the Year in 2022 and is capable of helping the G-Men turn things around. Finally, while the Jets lost Aaron Rodgers to a season-ending injury, they have a defense that’s going to keep them in the playoff hunt. After all, the Jets are 3-3 overall and 4-2 against the spread despite being an underdog in every game. They are not to be overlooked in 2023.
It’s super easy to sign up for FanDuel if you’re in New York. You don’t even need to leave this article. You just have to be 21 and physically present in the state of New York. Here’s what to do:
You then have seven days to use your $200 in bonus bets while exploring everything else that FanDuel has to offer.
