A new promotion from FanDuel could help quite a few Americans solve the dilemma of accessing NFL games this upcoming season.
FanDuel is partnering with new NFL Sunday Ticket provider YouTube on a promotion that will offer FanDuel bettors a serious discount on the game streaming service.
From Aug. 21 through Sept. 18, both new and existing FanDuel users can take advantage of the offer. New customers who place a $5 bet will get $200 in Bonus Bets as well as $100 off a subscription for this season of NFL Sunday Ticket. Existing users can place a $5 wager and, while there will be no bonus bets, they will be able to receive the NFL Sunday Ticket discount.
The cost of an NFL Sunday Ticket subscription on YouTube ranges from $349-$489 for the season.
“Partnering with YouTube to help deliver NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube and YouTube TV to our customers places FanDuel squarely at the intersection of one of the most valued sports and media offerings in the world,” said FanDuel CCO Mike Raffensperger. “This partnership makes FanDuel the only category partner making it easier for fans to access every out-of-market Sunday afternoon NFL game and elevates the sports betting and entertainment experience for millions of fans across the United States.”
This is the third season that FanDuel has been an Official Betting Partner of the NFL. As it readies for the season’s kickoff on Sept. 7, the company is planning to roll out some new features on the app as well.
The new FanDuel Explore feature is tailored toward less experienced bettors and provides an experience different than the standard sportsbook app layout.
FanDuel Explore will present betting options in a question format, asking things like “How many points will a team score?” or “Who will win the game?” in a narrative-style format. The hub will also feature educational tools and parlay builders in an attempt to simplify and demystify the betting experience for new users.
