No tricks, just treats from sportsbooks in Iowa ahead of NFL Week 8.

Here are what we mean:

  • Midwest teams are featured in all three primetime games over Halloween weekend.
  • This is an ideal time to open a new sportsbook account in Iowa. The offers from sportsbooks in Iowa are so good, it’s scary.

FanDuel has an NFL Week 8 offer for Cowboys-Vikings

That bump in the night might be your bank account with a FanDuel Sportsbook IA offer for the CowboysVikings game on Sunday Night Football.

Customers will want to download the FanDuel app to take advantage of the “Bet $5, win $125” offer. And it’s a cash offer — not a site credit! Here’s how to sign up:

  • Register
  • Make a first-time deposit
  • Find the “1+ TD to be scored in the MIN-DAL game” wording on the FanDuel homepage and
  • Make the $5 bet.

Take a moment to review the terms and conditions of any offer so you can make the most of the opportunity.

Betfred NFL Week 8 offer doubles the win

Betfred has great player prop bets, but the “Double Take” offer gives its customers the chance for a sequel. Let’s use Tennessee running back Derrick Henry as an example. (He’s the top fantasy football RB for NFL Week 8.)

If customers in Iowa correctly make a moneyline bet on a player like Henry to score the first touchdown in the Titans-Colts game, they win. Then, if he breaks from the Colts defense for a second TD, Betfred will double the moneyline payout. Twice the chills!

DraftKings Iowa still has its porch light on for new customers

DraftKings Sportsbook Iowa knows the neighborhood still includes new customers so it’s leaving its porch light on with an offer in Week 8 or Week 9.

If you — a new customer — bet $5 on any NFL game and their team wins, DraftKings will add $200 in bonus bets, on top of whatever you won in the wager itself.

The bonus comes in eight $25 bonus bets.

Open an account and place the bet at any time up until 10:59 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7, here in Iowa. The Nov. 8 Chicago Bears at Pittsburgh Steelers game on Monday Night Football would be a new customer’s very last chance — and they’d need to make a bet before the Sunday deadline.

BetMGM IA has a bet $10, get $200 treat in NFL Week 8

Don’t be scared if your team doesn’t win the first time you try the BetMGM sportsbook in Iowa. Simply open an account and place a bet of at least $10. If your team scores a touchdown — win or lose — BetMGM will add $200 in bonus bets to your account. 

Caesars IA win a VIP trip to the Super Bowl

Would you scream if you won a trip to Super Bowl 56? Caesars Sportsbook in Iowa is making a VIP trip possible for new and existing customers in good standing. Here’s how you enter to win:

  • Every eligible bet of $10 or more is a sweepstakes entry.
  • Just find NFL wagers with minimum odds of -200. (A bet at -225 would not qualify, but a +125 moneyline bet would.)
  • Eligible NFL game bets from now until the AFC and NFC Championship games qualify.
  • Wagers placed with a bonus bet and wagers that are cashed out aren’t eligible.

What is Super Bowl VIP treatment at Caesars?

  • Two tickets to Super Bowl 56
  • A two-night stay at a Caesars Rewards Las Vegas Resort
  • A private jet to and from the game
  • Airfare to and from Las Vegas

A runner-up receives two Super Bowl tickets and a two-night stay in LA. The game is on Feb. 13 at SoFi Stadium, home to the LA Chargers and LA Rams.

The first monthly prize is tickets to a Saints game, a two-night stay at Harrah’s New Orleans, as well as travel to and from the Big Easy.
