Prospective players can ring in launch week with two no-brainer Kentucky promos on DraftKings and FanDuel. Both online sportsbooks offer new Kentucky customers “Bet $5, Get $200” welcome promos, delivering $400 in bonus bets from $10 in cash wagers.
Following Thursday’s successful launch, DraftKings and FanDuel Sportsbook are live in the Bluegrass State. Eligible bettors within state lines can bet on Friday’s Louisville-NC State game or Saturday’s Kentucky-Florida contest at home or on the go. In the meantime, they can join DraftKings and FanDuel and bet $5 on both sites to receive an automatic $200 in bonus bets, win or lose.
DraftKings Kentucky Promos Include $200 in Instant Bonus Bets
DraftKings Sportsbook arrived in Kentucky on Thursday with much fanfare. Among all the exciting betting opportunities awaiting Bluegrass State bettors, everything circles back to the site’s introductory “Bet $5, Get $200” welcome offer.

FanDuel Offers $200 Bonus From $5 First Bet
FanDuel and DraftKings are neck-and-neck in many regards. So it makes sense why FD’s contribution to the list of Kentucky promos rivals its greatest competitor.
First-time customers who sign up for FanDuel Sportsbook also receive a “Bet $5, Get $200” welcome offer. The offer’s parameters are incredibly similar: Register through the appropriate registration links, bet $5 on any game, and get a guaranteed payout worth $200 in bonus bets.

- Ensure you’re within KY state lines with geolocation.
- Make a qualifying cash deposit.
- Bet at least $5 on any eligible betting market.
- Receive $200 in bonus bets once your stake settles, win or lose.
FanDuel’s additional Kentucky promos center around two no-brainer odds boosts. First, a Louisville team that was as high as -185 on the moneyline is now +100 to beat NC State. The other super boost lets players wager $50 on 1+ total points scored in Saturday’s Kentucky-Florida game at +100 odds.
Differences in DraftKings and FanDuel Kentucky Promos
There are truthfully more similarities than differences in what DraftKings and FanDuel offer new Kentucky bettors. But there are variations worth mentioning.
First, FanDuel requires a $10 deposit before placing the $5 wager. DraftKings only needs a $5 investment to get started. DK also pays the $200 bonus instantly, while FanDuel waits until after the $5+ stake settles before issuing the welcome payout.
Another significant difference is how the bonus bets take shape. FanDuel’s bonus bets are flexible and allow players to increase or decrease their wager amounts. Conversely, DraftKings issues eight $25 bonus bets.
