DraftKings Sportsbook is officially LIVE in Kentucky and it is bringing a special promo to new players before the state officially goes live for sports betting!

Sign up today for DraftKings in Kentucky and bet $5+ on your first wager and you’ll get $200 in bonus bets whether your bet wins or loses.

One important note is that in Kentucky, DraftKings allows players to be 18+, instead of 21+, to create a valid DraftKings Sportsbook account and to start betting!

How the DraftKings Kentucky Promo Works

All you need to do is click this link to activate the special offer. No promo code is necessary! Once you create your new DraftKings Sportsbook account, place your first bet of at least $5 on any market on DraftKings, and you will receive $200 in Bonus Bets, whether your bet wins or loses.

Signup Process

  • Click this link to activate the offer and be taken to the official DraftKings signup page.
  • Fill out all the necessary information and complete the verification steps, including location verification.
  • Get an email confirmation and confirm your account.
  • Make a deposit of $10+ using one of the safe and secure deposit methods.
  • Place your first bet of at least $5 on any market on the DraftKings Sportsbook.
  • Receive $200 in Bonus Bets (eight $25 Bonus Bets) instantly on bet placement.
  • Use your Bonus Bets before they expire -- seven days after issuance.

Terms and Conditions

Once you’ve been issued the Bonus Bets after placing your qualifying bets, you are given seven days (168 hours) to use them or they will expire.

This comes with a 1x wagering requirement, so there is no concern about playing through your Bonus Bets multiple times.

There is one interesting kicker that is different from many other states. Kentucky is allowing players to be 18+, as opposed to 21+, to join DraftKings Sportsbook and get this Kentucky promotion.

If your Bonus Bet wagers win, you will only receive your winnings, not the Bonus Bet + winnings.

When Does the DraftKings Kentucky Promo Launch?

As noted, Kentucky sports betting is officially LIVE as of September 28th!

The NFL, MLB, and college football are all officially available for betting in Kentucky -- as well as all the markets DraftKings offers. So sign up today and claim your Bet $5, Get $200 in bonus bets bonus!

Best Way to Use the DraftKings Kentucky Promo

Unfortunately, Kentucky didn't go live ahead of Week 1 of the NFL season, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bet on football now!

After you've signed up and made your qualifying $5+ bet, your work is done -- you'll receive the $200 in bonus bets nearly instantly.

Since you have only seven days to use your bonus bets, you need to be sure to at least place them within the first week of getting your bonus bets. The bets you place do not need to settle within that time frame, they just need to be placed. If you're so inclined you could place your bonus bets on a future.

And since there is no odds restrictions, there are two schools of thought here:

You can go aggressive and take some big swings with your Bonus Bets, or take a more conservative route and look for “easy” wins and focus on favorites and other favorable lines (Over/Unders and Player Props).

You also have college football in full swing and can have some fun betting on the Kentucky Wildcats and Louisville Cardinals.
