BetMGM, DraftKings, FanDuel Present NFL Week 13 Offers To Iowa Bettors

Written By Derek Helling on December 1, 2021

The 2021 season has officially entered the final quarter as NFL Week 13 is upon fans. Iowa sports betting apps are wasting no time with the diminishing amount of games left, offering some football betting promos for this week’s action.

These games could significantly affect things like Super Bowl futures as December proves a make-or-break month for many teams’ playoff destinies. With these offers, bettors could also make their December a winning month.

NFL Week 13 promos for new bettors in Iowa

Before you can start considering which deals make the most sense for you, you need to know whether you’re eligible for the sportsbook offers. You will need to be at least 21 years old, for starters.

Additionally, you’ll have to be somewhere within the borders of IA when you place your wager. If you don’t live in the Hawkeye State, it’s no problem as long as you’re old enough. That means you’ll have to make a trip to IA before you submit your betting slip in the app(s).

Finally, all three of these offers are just for customers new to the appropriate sportsbooks. If you’ve used one or two of them, you’re still free to take advantage of the other(s). The three Iowa sportsbook apps offering these promos are:

While the particulars of each offer differ a little, getting in on all of them requires the same basic actions.

BetMGM’s $50 free plus risk-free first bet

If you don’t have an active account with BetMGM yet, the sportsbook has an offer for you. You can get $50 just for registering; then, the sportsbook will cover your risk in your first real-money wager of $1,000 or less, too.

After the sportsbook verifies your account, it will give you $50 in site credit. That’s just like real money you can use to place any bet you like.

$50 Free On Sign Up + $1,000 Risk Free Bet
1
$1,050 Bonus
New Customers Only
Exclusive Special
$50 Free On Sign Up
$1,000 Risk Free Bet
Use Bonus Code: PLAYBONUS50

Then, if you opt to deposit some cash, you can place your first wager without any worry. If you place such a bet and lose, BetMGM will give you site credit equal to the value of your bet or $1,000, whichever is lesser.

It’s important to note that site credit isn’t real money, so you can’t withdraw any of the promotional value until and only if you use it to place winning bets.

That information is relevant for the next deal on the list here, too.

DraftKings: Bet $1, Get $100 in free bets

As already noted, get the DraftKings app and sign up, then deposit at least $5 into your account. Then, you have your choice of sports wagers, including betting on the Hawkeyes.

NFL Special - Win $280 In Free Bets If Your Wager Wins

The minimum wager for this deal cost a mere dollar. Pick either side of the moneyline on any game in the aforementioned sports. You must do so before that game starts, however.

If you make the correct pick, you’ll get your payout as usual. If you miss your bet, DraftKings will keep your money, but whether you get the $100 in free bets doesn’t depend on which team wins the game. All that needs to happen is for either team to score a single point in the game. As long as that happens, you’ll get four free bets worth $25 each.

Again, you can use those like money in the DraftKings app, but the promotional value won’t be part of your payout should you use them to place winning wagers. You’ll get the profit from those bets.

That isn’t the case with the last deal for NFL Week 13 betting, though. Your reward will be actual cash. However, your options aren’t as massive.

FanDuel offers +3000 odds on Cowboys vs. Saints

Boosted odds for NFL moneylines aren’t that rare but boosts that take them up to +3000 are. That’s exactly what new FanDuel customers can get on either the Dallas Cowboys or New Orleans Saints this week, though.

Just visit the promotions tab of the FanDuel app after you’ve registered and deposited at least $10. Then opt in to the “Bet $5, Win $150promo. Then, as you probably imagined, bet up to $5 on either side of the moneyline before the game starts.

NFL Playoffs Special - Bet $5 Win $150 In Cash If Your Team Wins

The sportsbook will then boost your odds to +3000. Of course, you have to place a winning bet to enjoy the boosted payout. If you bet on the loser, FanDuel will keep your wager.

If you choose wisely, though, you’ll get a $150 return. That’s real money you could withdraw immediately. That could make your NFL Week 13, and perhaps the entire month of December, a joyous one indeed.
