We’ve got two major sports entering their respective postseasons, as the NBA Playoffs and NHL Playoffs are both now in full swing.
New FanDuel users can take their first steps into postseason betting without having to worry about losing.
FanDuel is offering a risk-free guarantee on a new user’s first bet, up to $1,000. That means you can bet up to a grand on the NHL or NBA game of your choice. If you win, you get to keep your winnings. If you lose, the site will give you a do-over. You’ll get your stake back in the form of a credit on another bet.
You can bet on anything you want—spreads, money lines, individual player props. It doesn’t even have to be one of the two playoff sports. Whatever your first bet is on, FanDuel has you covered, up to $1,000.
Other Playoffs Deals
FanDuel has some other offers available for your NHL and NBA postseason betting pleasure. If you place a parlay bet on the Stanley Cup Playoffs, you get a $20 free bet.
The parlay must be at least three legs, with each leg having odds of at least +400. You get the free bet regardless of how the parlay turns out.
FanDuel also offers the same promotion for NBA Playoffs betting. A three-leg parlay gets you a free $20 bet.
If you prefer regular season, outdoor action, FanDuel also has an interesting MLB promotion. If you place a bet of at least $25 on the “hit a home run” prop section for an MLB game, you’ll get $5 for each home run hit by either team in the game.
It’s capped at $25, but, regardless of how your bet turns out, you have the chance to win back your stake in free bets.
