BetMGM’s Free NFL Draft Game Among Several WV Sports Betting Promotions This Week

Written By Derek Helling on April 22, 2020

The NFL Draft is one of the premier sporting events of the spring each year. That’s even more true this year.

With the lack of other events ongoing and a new NFL Draft Game at BetMGM Sportsbook, West Virginia residents have a chance to get some skin in the game.

That game isn’t the only opportunity for WV bettors this week, however. DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook also have promotions live right now for the NFL Draft.

Perhaps the best thing about this contest is that it’s free to play. Even so, WV sports betting fans who perform the best can still win prizes of up to $2,000.

That’s cold hard cash, not a credit for use on BetMGM’s sportsbook. All you have to do is answer some questions pertaining to the 2020 NFL Draft correctly.

The contest features 20 questions. Examples of those include which team will draft the first quarterback and how many teams will trade down in the draft’s first round.

Make your predictions on all 20 items by the time the Draft begins on Thursday. Each correct guess brings you closer to one of the top five spots.

Every player in the top five spots will win a prize. The player with the top score will get at least a share of $2,000. If there is a tie for any of the top five spots, the players involved will share the prizes.

The competition might be fierce given that this is a free-to-play game. BetMGM customers from Indiana and New Jersey will get in on the action as well, so that will up the stakes.

BetMGM isn’t the only WV online sportsbook running special promotions this week, however. At DraftKings and FanDuel, there are bonuses you can take advantage of without having to compete with others.

DraftKings Sportsbook is offering two special bonuses relevant to NFL Draft wagers this week. One is a special pool that doubles as a fundraiser for COVID-19 relief efforts.

Despite being for the purpose of aiding the NFL’s relief effort, the pool still comes with $15,000 in prizes. The other promotion is essentially a multiplier for your potential payouts.

Bet $5 Get $200 + Up to $1,050 Bonus

DraftKings has a profit boost promotion for the NFL Draft ongoing as well. If any of your wagers on the event win, you can apply the boost to two of them.

The boost is for 20% of your winnings and can be worth as much as $250 in additional winnings per wager. In order for your wagers to be eligible, they can only be worth up to $25, however.

FanDuel has a similar promotion ongoing right now as well. For straight bets on the NFL Draft, you can earn up to $50 in a bonus depending on how much you bet.

Bet $5 Win $150 or $1,000 Risk Free

Only wagers on with odds of -200 or longer qualify. Bonuses start at $25 in NFL Draft bets and max out at $250 in wagers. All your eligible NFL Draft wagers cumulatively qualify you for a higher bonus and there is no cap on the volume of eligible wagers.

Regardless of which NFL team you’re a fan of, these opportunities can elevate your enjoyment of this week’s Draft. Your team may not be wildly successful but with these promotions, it may be a good night for you regardless.
