FanDuel Promotions FAQ’s

FanDuel Promotions FAQ’s


We love helping new FanDuel players take advantage of their initial deposit and promo code bonus. This is one of the few times in your daily fantasy career that you will be able to tweak the odds in your favor. Below are answers to the most common questions we get regarding FanDuel promotions.

If you are new to FanDuel, a promo code is a must to get started, and understanding exactly how these promotions work will help you get the most out of your initial deposit. Being able to stretch this first deposit out as long as possible as you develop your own FanDuel strategy is crucial.

[vc_toggle title=”How does a deposit bonus work?”]Many new FanDuel users are understandably confused by the idea of a deposit bonus? Is this just free money? The answer is somewhere in the middle of yes and no.

You will receive your FanDuel bonus cash back at a rate of 4% your total entries. So, for every $100 worth of contests you enter, you will receive $4 in deposit bonus cash. The easiest way to think about this is that you pay a certain percentage of every entry in rake, generally around 15%. FanDuel lowers that number by 4% until you have received all of your deposit bonus.[/vc_toggle]

[vc_toggle title=”Who is eligible to use these promotions?”]FanDuel promo codes can only be used by new players registering for the first time. You also have to make a deposit to receive a bonus and/or a free entry. This is an extremely strict rule, and users caught making multiple accounts to take advantage of the bonus offers will never be allowed to make a withdrawal.[/vc_toggle]

[vc_toggle title=”How do I know this is the best available FanDuel promo?”]Quite frankly, it’s the only FanDuel promo. The industry as a whole has really eliminated varying promotions, and has gone to one standard promotion regardless of where you found their site or who referred you. You technically don’t even need a referral link or promotional code to get started anymore, all users receive the same offer as an incentive to make that initial deposit.[/vc_toggle]

[vc_toggle title=”How does the FanDuel promo code offer compare to DraftKings’?”]The two companies are ran very similar to one-another. It used to be that DraftKings was far more aggressive with marketing and bonus offers, but they have come way back off of that aggression over the past two years.

Currently speaking, both companies offer a 100% deposit bonus, which releases at 4% total entries, and a free entry into one of their cheaper GPP’s. [/vc_toggle]

[vc_toggle title=”Can I withdraw my bonus cash winnings?”]While you don’t get immediate access to your deposit bonus, whatever you do win with the money you earn is yours to keep. For instance, if you deposit $100, lose it all the first week, but earn back $4 in deposit bonus money which you then turn into $10,000 in winnings, that $10,000 is yours to withdraw immediately.[/vc_toggle]

[vc_toggle title=”How do I receive my free entry?”]The easiest way to find your free entry is to wait for FanDuel to email it to you. The email will contain a link to the contest that they gave you an entry for. Alternatively, you can click on your avatar at the top right portion of the page, then click vouchers. Your free entry will be listed here with a link to the contest it can be used on.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][/vc_row]
