The Super Bowl is finally here as the pinnacle betting event of the sports calendar and will feature the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs. The top sports betting sites across the country will feature welcome promos for new users to redeem on the Super Bowl or any other event they prefer.
You’ll be able to find at least one welcome offer in over 20 legal sports betting states. While FanDuel is our favorite offer, keep reading to find all the best welcome promos from top sportsbooks below.
The FanDuel promo offer is available in any FanDuel location and provides $200 of bonus bets with your first $5 wager. The bet can be on any market or odds and earns the bonus no matter how the bet settles.
Let’s say you placed $5 on the Chiefs +2.5 (-115) after making a $10+ deposit. Here’s what you can expect from the FanDuel promo.
- A win profits $4.35, returns the $5 stake and earns the $200 of bonus bets
- Even if the bet misses, you earn the $200 in bonus
FanDuel bonus bets deposit within 72 hours and are valid for seven days in your account. These bonus bets can fund a wager in the book to potentially profit cash but cannot be withdrawn since they are not cash.

There are two BetMGM bonus code offers that depend on your location while some states, such as New York, are excluded from both promotions.
First, new customers in most BetMGM locations, besides Kentucky and D.C., can earn a 20 percent deposit match up to a maximum $1,500 in sports bonus. You’ll need at least a $10 deposit to qualify and there isn’t an initial wager to earn the bonus.
However, in order to withdraw cash winnings, BetMGM requires 10x the bonus earned in total cash bets within 30 days. An example would be a $500 deposit which earns $100 in sports bonus would require a total $1,000 in cash bets (it can be spread across multiple bets) within 30 days in order to access winnings.
The second offer is available to all locations including Kentucky and D.C. but excludes the locations listed below. A $10 deposit and $5 wager on any odds earns $158 in bonus bets no matter how the bet settles.
This works as a traditional Bet/Get promo allowing you to potentially profit cash and bonus bets if your bet hits. Meanwhile, if it misses, you still earn the bonus.
For both offers, the bonus is valid for seven days in your account and allows you to fund a wager to potentially profit cash.
These offers are not available in NY, NV, PR, ON and MS. Both offers are available in AZ, CO, IL, IN, IA, KS, LA, MD, MA, MI, NJ, OH, PA, TN, VA, WV and WY. The deposit match is not available in KY or DC, but the $158 bet/get is.
bet365 bonus code: SHNEWS
The bet365 bonus code SHNEWS is valid to activate one of two welcome offers now available in 9 states — Arizona, Indiana, New Jersey, Ohio, Virginia, Louisiana, Kentucky, Iowa and Colorado.
$2K First Bet Safety Net
First, this is the largest first bet insurance promo you’ll find among the top sportsbooks on this list. First bet insurance means that if your bet wins you profit cash like a normal wager while a miss means the book covers whatever your stake was up to a maximum dollar amount, in this case $2,000.
Let’s say you placed $2,000 on a +400 Super Bowl prop. Here’s how the promotion works:
- A win profits $8,000 and returns the $2,000 stake while no bonus bets are earned
- If the prop doesn’t hit, bet365 would deposit $2,000 of bonus bets within an hour of bet settlement
Bet $5, Get $150
The alternate offer, also available in all 9 states, requires at least a $10 deposit and $5 wager on odds -500 or greater. This odds requirement means an alternate spread such as 49ers +9 (-500) qualifies while pushing the alternate spread to +9.5 (-525) wouldn’t be eligible.
Once you meet the requirements, this promo works the same as the other Bet/Get offers mentioned above. No matter how the bet settles, the bonus bets are earned within an hour.
These bonus funds are valid for seven days and must be played once through to potentially win cash.
4. ESPN BET
ESPN BET promo code: SHNEWS
ESPN BET burst onto the scene this fall and is now available in 17 states. The ESPN BET promo code SHNEWS offers new customers $150 in bonus bets with any first bet.
That’s right, the bet can be any dollar amount on any market or odds to win no matter how the bet settles. However, it’s important to note that ESPN BET requires you to apply the promo code SHNEWS upon sign-up or else you are not eligible for the offer.
5. Caesars Sportsbook
Caesars Sportsbook promo code: HANDLENEWS1000
Caesars is one of the most widely-available books on this list, available in 21 states. The Caesars Sportsbook promo code HANDLENEWS1000 allows new customers to recover a first bet up to $1,000 in bonus bets.
Admittedly, this works the same as the bet365 safety net but with a lower dollar amount. However, the amount of promos and availability moves Caesars Sportsbook up the list.
You’ll need at least a $10 deposit and wager on any market or odds. If you earn the bonus bets, they are valid for 14 days and must be used in one lump sum and cannot be split across multiple bets.
DraftKings is one of the leading sportsbooks in terms of market share. Furthermore, it offers an incredible mobile app experience with a wide variety of markets and sports to play.
New customers can bet $5 on anything to instantly earn $200 in bonus bets no matter how the bet settles. As with the other Bet/Get promos on the list, this is a fantastic promo that gives you the chance to earn bonus bets without losing your first wager.
The BetRivers promo code offers vary depending on state but are all variations of a first bet insurance promo.
IL, IN, LA, MI, PA, VA — Second chance bet up to $500 in bonus bets
You’ll need to place a cash bet with no odds restriction to qualify. A winning bet is treated like any other bet in that you win cash and keep the stake. Meanwhile, a losing wager is covered with bonus bets up to the maximum dollar amount which changes from state to state.
You receive the bonus bets within 24 hours of the bet settlement and these bonus funds are valid for 30 days upon receipt into the account. If you use the bonus bets to fund a wager, they can only be used in a lump sum and can profit cash while the stake will disappear.

CO, NJ — Second chance bet up to $250 in bonus bets
Colorado and New Jersey new customers can find the same promo but are covered up to $250 in bonus.
AZ — Second chance bet up to $100 in bonus bets
Once again, new Arizona bettors can also get in on the action and earn up to a $100 bonus bet if their first bet doesn’t go their way.
Betr promo code: HANDLE
Betr is a newer book that is limited in availability to Ohio and Virginia. The Betr promo code HANDLE offers a similar promo to the other first bet insurance offers that allows you to recoup a first bet miss up to $250 in bonus.
All the first bet insurance promos are similar in that a winning bet cannot win bonus bets but you still profit cash and keep your stake to withdraw or use on another wager.
betParx promo code: HANDLE
The betParx promo code HANDLE is available to users in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Maryland. If you’re new to betParx, you can place $10+ on anything and win $125 in sports bonus bets.
These bonus bets are awarded as five $25 bonus bets whether the bet wins or not. You receive the bonus on a schedule, essentially a $25 bonus bet every week until you’ve received the full $125.
Finally, we round out our list with Hard Rock Sportsbook which can be found in Arizona, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee and Virginia. Hard Rock is known for hundreds of prop options and boosted odds throughout the platform.
New bettors have the chance to earn a No Regret First Bet up to $100 in bonus. This is the same as the other first bet insurance promos where a winning wager is treated like other winning bets while your stake is covered if you miss up to the maximum $100 in bonus.
