The much anticipated event at Fight Island has finally arrived. UFC 251 comes your way with not one, not two, but THREE title fights. The main event has changed, as Kamaru Usman will now defend his welterweight title against Jorge Masvidal instead of Gilbert Burns, but the other two title fights remain the same. Alexander Volkanovski won the featherweight title from Max Holloway and will now attempt to defend it and Jose Aldo and Petr Yan will battle for the vacant bantamweight title.
In order to celebrate this big pay-per-view card, DraftKings Sportsbook has a new round of promotional offers. There is a specific promotional offer for residents of Colorado this week, so this one does not apply, but residents of Indiana, New Jersey, Iowa, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia can take advantage of this generous offer.
New and existing users will have the opportunity to take advantage of two 50% Profit Boosts for UFC 251. Unlike a lot of other promotions at different sportsbooks for UFC and other events, there are not a lot of restrictions to this specific promotion.
Once you opt-in to the offer, you will be issued two single-use Profit Boosts to be used on ANY UFC 251 market. Yes, that includes live bets and parlays! The 50% Profit Boost will only be applied to the winnings and you can bet up to $50 on your wager. Anything more than that and the Profit Boost will not be eligible to activate.
With your Profit Boost, you can win a maximum of $250 in additional earnings, which would be made possible if you used your Profit Boost on a parlay or a long shot underdog.
Aside from the maximum dollar amount restrictions, the only other restrictions are that you cannot use your Profit Boosts on free bets, cash out bets, voided bets, and odds boosts. Also, you have to be in one of the five states mentioned above.
You can do a lot of damage with a promotion like this. There are some heavy favorites on the UFC 251 card, so you can parlay some of them together or parlay some of the heavily-juiced totals. The 50% Profit Boost would give you a much nicer payout, especially with a chalk-filled parlay.
You could take a long shot underdog like Paige VanZant or even Jorge Masvidal in the main event. You could simply make your money go further betting on a favorite like Kamaru Usman or Alexander Volkanovski.
However you want to utilize your Profit Boosts are up to you. If you don’t see them listed when you go to lock in your bets, either refresh the page or try to opt-in to the promotion again. Be sure to select the Profit Boost before you place your bet. There will be an option in the Bet Slip to use your single-use Profit Boost offers.
If you don’t have a DraftKings account, now is the time. Even if you aren’t a big UFC fan, or don’t know enough about golf, soccer, or NASCAR, the NHL, NBA, and MLB are coming soon and it will be football season before long. These Profit Boosts are a great way to add some extra green to your bankroll as you prep for the return of the major sports leagues.
