With Virginia sports betting being legal, sportsbooks are looking to earn their share of the market by offering promotions to new bettors. This means that there are several welcome bonuses for bettors to choose from. Here, we will run down all of the welcome bonuses in the state so bettors know which sportsbooks they should sign up for.
FanDuel has one of the most lucrative welcome bonuses of any Virginia sportsbook. Bettors can get a risk-free bet up to $1000 at FanDuel Sportsbook, meaning that a losing first wager on the site will be reimbursed up to that amount. This offer serves as a nice insurance policy in the event that a bettor’s first wager doesn’t go as planned.
DraftKings Sportsbook Deposit Bonus
New bettors at DraftKings Sportsbook can receive a 20% deposit bonus of up to $1000. This is an interesting bonus, as it offers a huge bonus amount in that it goes up to $1000. But in order to get that $1000, bettors have to make a deposit of $5000, which may be more than new bettors in Virginia want to deposit upfront.
William Hill US $500 Risk Free Bet
William Hill is an established brand around the United States and the world, and they have decided to offer a $500 risk-free bet to new bettors in Virginia. This bonus is a little smaller than those at other sportsbooks in the state. But when you have the name recognition that William Hill has, you may not feel it necessary to overdo it with bonus funds.
BetMGM $600 Risk Free Bet
BetMGM has decided to separate itself from the pack somewhat by offering a $600 risk-free bet to new bettors at their sportsbook. The $600 risk-free bet stands out for a couple of reasons: it is the only bonus in the state that doesn’t come in multiples of $250, but it is also just slightly higher than several $500 risk-free bet bonuses that are offered elsewhere.
WynnBet $500 Risk Free Bet
WynnBet has joined William Hill in its offering of a $500 risk-free bet for new bettors. This is a spot where WynnBet may have wanted to offer more in reimbursement funds to bettors, as this amount makes it difficult to separate WynnBet from William Hill. And with William Hill being a more established brand, this may not be enough to incentivize bettors to try Wynn.
BetRivers $250 Deposit Bonus
BetRivers offers new players at their site a 100% deposit bonus up to $250, which is the smallest bonus amount of any Virginia sportsbook. But the fact that this bonus features a 100% deposit bonus makes it worthwhile for many bettors, even if the bonus amount isn’t as high as that of its competitors. Bettors who deposit $250 at BetRivers would receive five times the bonus amount they would get with the same deposit at DraftKings, which is worth noting.
Unibet $100 Free Bet
Finally, Unibet technically offers the largest sportsbook bonus in the state of Virginia. New players can receive $100 free just for signing up at Unibet and a $1000 risk-free bet if their first bet loses. This two-step welcome bonus approach is a great way to get bettors interested in what Unibet has to offer.
