Yes, I don't know if you have ever been to many physical casinos, but they always offer nice incentives for new customers. The online sports books are way more generous. Most(Fanduel, Draftkings Caesars etc...) offer pretty crazy sign up bonuses that become actual cash after you make bets. They also have periodic bonus bets or enhanced odds for existing users at Fanduel. I started betting online as soon as it was legal in TN with a 200 dollar deposit and I'm up probably $2,200. I don't claim to be a betting expert, but the online sports books want people to sign up and are making it easy to win.

Its fun. A $10.00 bet makes me way more interested in a run of the mill game than without any skin in the game.

I think I have a new customer sign-up code at Fanduel that will double your initial deposit (for real money not site credit). Let me know if you are interested.

So all in all for somebody just starting, what would be the best one to go with? Not looking to get rich just looking to have fun and maybe win a little money. Pm replied cbhunter

I've used Draft Kings, BetMGM, Ceasar's, and Wynn. I only use DK and MGM now. I compare lines and promos before I place a bet. DK and MGM have the best promos but I've never tried Fanduel. Be very careful. Picking winners is a lot harder than it looks.

I've used DraftKings, FanDuel and Action 247. FanDuel was to glitchy for me. There was one instance where the site was down for over 16 hours in the middle of football season. Action247 I just didn't like. The only advantage of Action247 is if you don't want to deposit money online, you can walk in to any Advance Financial 24/7 and make a deposit over the counter. Now I only use DK. I only pay for fun. Very small amounts. $1 bets are normal. . Example: I put $1 on Stetson Bennett to win the Heisman at +1200 for a payout of $13. Might go to McDonald's if that one hits.

I really like FanDuel. I don't bet large sums, but I like pulling together a couple of bets into a Parlay to increase the payout.

Same here. I'm usually 10 or 20 per game. I don't think I have ever bet over $100 on a weekend. If you take advantage of all the "boosts" and weekly promo bets FanDuel offers its hard to lose money.

FanDuel got me hooked during the Superbowl in Feb 2021. They ran a promo for 50-1 odds to pick the winner of the Superbowl on a $5 bet. I put my money down on Brady and the Bucs and came away with $250. I pulled out $150 to buy some new hunting gear and left $100 as my playing around money. I haven't had to add any money to my FanDuel account since.

I can't remember exactly how it worked but FanDuel ran a football promo where the more people that played the higher they would raise the spread. I think there ended up being some games where teams were favored by almost 100 points. Basically free money.
