Sports betting in Iowa is about to really take off. The in-person registration requirement will expire on January 1, 2021 and it will not be renewed. What that means is that you can celebrate the New Year by signing up anywhere in Iowa for a sportsbook.
Most notably, that means you can sign up from anywhere for DraftKings Sportsbook. All users in Iowa will be able to fully register online or mobile for DraftKings Sportsbook. You no longer have to register in-person at one of the Wild Rose Casino locations in Jefferson, Clinton, or Emmetsburg.
All you have to do is sign up through the DraftKings app or on the DraftKings website. That will dramatically increase the number of sign-ups in the state and will make it extremely easy to create your DraftKings account and get everything set up.
To celebrate, DraftKings Sportsbook is offering a free $50 bet on registration when you sign up for a new account in Iowa. This promotion is already live, even though the requirement does not end until January 1. The free bet must be used within seven days of January 1.
This is a great opportunity to start your bankroll with an extra $50. It can also be used in conjunction with the Welcome Bonus offer that you can get if you sign up for DraftKings Sportsbook through ATS.io.
It’s about time that Iowa ends the in-person requirement. Sports betting in Illinois skyrocketed when the in-person requirement was relaxed as a result of COVID-19. Other states, like New Jersey, Indiana, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia have no such requirement.
The expiration of the registration requirement is going to greatly increase the number of people that bet on sports, which will help the states with tax revenue and it will help new users secure some great perks and offers. Like this one.
The free bet amount is not included in any returns or winnings. You’ll just get a $50 free bet upon registration. Make sure you use it within seven days of January 1 because if you don’t use it, you lose it.
Bet with the best. Sign up at DraftKings Sportsbook.
