FanDuel is the No. 1 online sportsbook in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and several other states. It built up the business by offering Daily Fantasy Sports contests, but quickly expanded into sports betting when the federal ban was overturned in 2018. Flutter Entertainment, the world’s largest online gambling company, owns FanDuel.

FanDuel Sportsbook offers new customers a risk-free bet worth up to $1,000. You can also enjoy a risk-free same-game parlay on any NFL Week 7 game up to $10, and it also runs a “Bet $20, Get $10” promotion on football. You will also benefit from a First TD bonus, while FanDuel often runs enhanced odds offers for new users.

SugarHouse Sportsbook 

Deposit $250, Get $250 in Free Bets

SugarHouse takes its name from a casino in downtown Philadelphia. Parent company Rush Street Interactive operates an online sportsbook and casino under the SugarHouse brand in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. It also owns the BetRivers brand, which is available in several states, but it chose to go with SugarHouse in Connecticut.

New users at SugarHouse Sportsbook receive a 100% deposit match sign-up bonus worth up to $250. If you deposit $250, you will be given $500 to play with, and the bonus funds have a 1x rollover requirement.
