NJ Online Sportsbook Holiday Promos

Gift cards make great stocking stuffers. So do free bets from NJ online sportsbooks.

That could be DraftKings’ theme for its Holiday Gift Surprise promo running through Christmas Day.

And who just barreled down the chimney? None other than Sixers great and Hall-of-Famer Charles Barkley, dubbed Jolly Ol’ St. Chuck by FanDuel Sportsbook for his holiday-week promotion of small gifts.

By different routes, the books have taken a unique angle on the season of giving.

How to get the DraftKings Sportsbook holiday promo

Unwrap the bow, take off the paper and, presto, DraftKings Sportsbook has a mystery gift for its bettors.

Hopefully, it’s the one they always wanted.

It’s a random free wager up to $50. Freebie totals include $5, $10, $20 or $50 and must be used quickly.

The offer expires at 3:00 AM ET on Dec. 26.

Here’s how it works:

  • Go to the promos page.
  • Following opt-in, visit the landing page and discover the mystery amount.
  • Make the wager, which will show up as a free bet on your bet slip and in your betting history.

The amount of the free bet can be significant. A $10 bet may encourage someone to take a high flier, perhaps a multi-legged parlay.

A $50 freebie brings even more considerations into play. Place it on any 2-1 shot, for example, and one has obtained $100.

The free bet can be used for futures, too, which comes just in time for the NFL betting championship season. Perhaps one wouldn’t chase the Green Bay Packers or Kansas City Chiefs, the favored NFC and AFC conference winners in the 2-1 range.

But with a gift like a free bet, some will make the stab.

Jolly Ol’ St. Chuck delivering gifts to NJ sports bettors

Fan Duel takes a unique approach to Christmas giving. Rather than deliver one big present, it has broken up the process to something small every day, through Dec. 27.

Some offers apply to new users. Others are meant for all users. Either way, there’s something for everyone to unwrap under the heading of its Santa Barkley promo.

Check back each day to see what Jolly Ol’ St. Chuck has for you.

As far as how it works, if the offer is a promotion, you must opt-in to participate in that promotion. For each one, any potential bonus or refund will be credited within 72 hours of bet settlement

They will be issued as non-withdrawable site credit that expires 7 days after receipt.

30-1 Christmas Day odds for new FanDuel Sportsbook users

Here is a sample of recent offers.

New users get +3000 on any NBA or NFL Moneyline on Christmas Day.

This offer is for new users only. And it must be your first bet with FanDuel Sportsbook.

Here’s how the process works:

  • Sign up and register for an account
  • Make your first deposit of at least $10
  • Place your first bet in the Christmas Day enhanced odds market

The NBA eligible games include:

  • Atlanta Hawks vs New York Knicks, 12 p.m.
  • Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks, 2:30 p.m.
  • Golden State Warriors vs Phoenix Suns, 5 p.m.
  • Brooklyn Nets vs Los Angeles Lakers, 8 p.m.
  • Dallas Mavericks vs Utah Jazz, 10:30 p.m.

The NFL eligible games are:

  • Cleveland Browns vs Green Bay Packers, 4:30 p.m.
  • Indianapolis Colts vs. Arizona Cardinals, 8:15 p.m.

Most other Santa Barkley offers have been small site credits connected with parlays.

Not all of them will compel bettors to wager. But it will make them look, every day, for no other reason than to see how good Sir Charles looks in his Santa Claus hat.
