Whether you prefer to bet on team sports, individual sports like golf or tennis, casino games, or horse racing, FanDuel is making sure you don’t feel any pressure.  

To ease you into things, the site has risk-free offers across the board to help make that first wager or first day a little easier. 

Risk-Free Sports 

New users on FanDuel’s sportsbook can get their first bet covered. Once a user has signed up for an account and makes their first deposit, the first bet placed in the sportsbook will be risk-free up to $1,000.  

That means if the first bet loses, the amount you wagered (up to $1,000) will be credited back to your account.  If you win, you get to keep whatever you earned, but if you lose, you get a mulligan.  

Risk-Free Casino 

Everyone loves a shopping spree, and that’s basically what FanDuel is offering new users on its casino site. If you sign up for a casino account, your first day of play is entirely risk-free.

Starting from the moment you place your first real money wager, you get 24 hours of risk-free play. Losses up to $1,000 will be refunded to your account as site credit.  

The offer covers your net losses, not every losing bet. So, if you come out on top at the end of the day, you keep what you’ve won. Otherwise, whatever amount you’re down gets wiped out.  

 Risk-Free Racing 

Horse racing also has a risk-free offer on FanDuel, and that site has another promotion that’s good for all users, not just first-timers.  

Monday through Wednesday, users can get a Win Bonus on any horse racing wagers. In addition to whatever you’ve earned on winning bets, FanDuel will give you a 10 percent bonus on any victories, up to $25.
