DraftKings Pre-Launch Offer Gives New Illinois Sports Bettors $100 Free Bet

DraftKings has yet to officially launch in Illinois, but the sportsbook provider is looking ahead to that inevitable day with a pre-launch sign-up bonus: awarding early bird registrations with a $100 free bet, no deposit required.

All new accounts registered by new Illinois sports betting users will be eligible for the $100 free bet, which can be used on whatever available market they choose once DraftKings at Casino Queen Sportsbook launches in the state.

The offer announcement comes just days after the Casino Queen in East St. Louis changed its official name to ‘DraftKings at Casino Queen,’ pending regulatory approval.

Boston-headquartered DraftKings offers mobile and retail betting for major U.S. and international sports. Launched in 2012, it’s currently operating in Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.
