Online sports betting in West Virginia continues to grow. But until everyone is on board, you can count on sites trying to entice new users with deals that seem too good to be true.
For MMA fans, this weekend may be the time to take the plunge with UFC 254 coming up on Saturday night.
DraftKings Sportsbook is attempting to capitalize on one such promotion, offering 100-to-1 odds for new users on the main event between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje.
Once you make your first deposit on DraftKings, you wager $1 on either fighter. If your guy wins, you get $100. There is one important catch — you must deposit at least $5 into your account to qualify, and click ‘BOOST THIS EVENT’ when placing your bet.
For the record, Khabib enters the bout as a massive favorite, with a payout of $1.32 for a non-boosted $1 bet.
If the fight game isn’t your thing, don’t fret. The new user promotion is also applicable to World Series Games 3 and 4, as well as the Big Ten season opener between Minnesota and Michigan.
Double your winnings at one WV Sportsbook
If you’ve already joined DraftKings, there’s still a chance to profit big off of fight night.
DraftKings is offering a 50 percent profit boost that is eligible for every fight on the UFC 254 card. If you see no value in betting on a heavy favorite, this is a chance to get some. And if you like an underdog, it’s an opportunity to rack up an even bigger win.
DraftKings also offering NFL betting boosts
There’s a little bit of extra money at stake this weekend for NFL bets, too.
Bettors will be able to bet up to seven NFL parlays with a 20 percent boost for winning, and seven individual bets with a 10 percent boost over the regular profit.
For the individual bets, there is a $50 bet limit while the parlays come with a $25 limit.
BetMGM celebrates the Big Ten with a college football betting promo
Big Ten football is finally back, and MGM has a promo to mark the occasion. After all, the odd Buckeye or Nittany Lion fan is sometimes known to trickle across the border into West Virginia.
If you place a $25 wager on any Big Ten game this weekend, you’ll receive a $10 free bet on BetMGM Sportsbook regardless of the outcome.
William Hill also welcoming back the Big Ten
William Hill Sportsbook has an interesting promotional twist on the Big Ten’s return to play.
There are three games available to bet on the point spread for the promotion:
- Penn State at Indiana
- Iowa at Purdue
- Michigan at Minnesota
If you wager $50 or more on any of those games, you’ll receive a free $5 bet for every touchdown of 10 yards or more that is scored in that game.
