FanDuel Michigan

FanDuel Michigan, a massive Daily Fantasy Sports operator cleared the way to join the Great Lakes State sports betting market by teaming up with MotorCity Casino in Detroit.

Online betting is still not up and running in Michigan, although the state has fully legalized it. The launch date is still unknown, but as soon as the state opens the mobile betting doors to the public, FanDuel Michigan will be among the first to go live. 

The sportsbook is partnered with a casino headquartered in heart of downtown of the largest Michigan city (Detroit). There are no doubts FanDuel Michigan will enter the unexplored market on a high, especially if we take a look at the offer they are already promoting to the Great Lakes State residents. Whoever signs up for a new FanDuel Michigan account now (before the official launch) will receive $100 in free bets. The offer is divided into $50 for sports betting and casino apiece. It comes in with no wagering or deposit requirements. You just need to register and verify a new account and you will receive the free bets on the opening day of online sports betting in Michigan. 

FanDuel Michigan Welcome Bonus

Anyone who decides to open a new FanDuel Michigan account is in for a welcome treat in the shape of the following: 

  • A Free Bet up to $1,000

While some of the biggest competitors went with a matched-deposit (a more standard offer we’d say), FanDuel Michigan give away a free bet promotion instead. It means you will get the chance to place your inaugural bet at FanDuel Michigan without the risk involved. If it wins, it’s great for you as you will instantly boost up your bankroll. However, if it loses, you will get a refund of up to $1,000. 

Wagering Requirements

Free bets are pretty much straightforward in general. They don’t come in together with wagering requirements or any other hidden attachments. You simply get your original stake back (max $1,000) if the initial bet lets you down. You will then have an opportunity to use it by betting on any market you want. 

From there, any potential winnings are all yours to keep. Note the free bet stake is not included in returns when the bet is settled. For example, if you get a $200 free bet (let’s say $200 was your original stake on the maiden bet, but it lost) and you take advantage of the offer by placing a $200 free bet on the +100 odds, you will be able to collect $200 when the bet is settled. 

  • $200 Stake x +100 Odds = $400 – The stake is deducted from the returns – At the end, you get $200

You do not have to utilize a promo code to get the FanDuel Michigan free bet offer.
