DraftKings seeks to create promotions that are both unique to each of the markets they serve, as well as to sporting events that are in the news. For instance, during Masters weekend, in Iowa DraftKings offered every bettor who played a $20 college football bet on the Saturday schedule a $10 free bet on the Sunday final round of the Masters.
They also do crossover promotions between their sportsbook and casino. Recently, a $10 play on the DraftKings Mystery Express slot earned players a $5 free bet in the DraftKings sportsbook.
DraftKings Iowa app presents the sporting options in their online sportsbook via a betting carousel in which the available sports are all accessible. The carousel is populated firstly by sports that are live at that moment, followed by those in season. A handy dropdown menu on the top right side of the DraftKings side provides an A-Z listing of all available sports, leagues and competitions. It’s all just a click away.
Sports available for wagering include the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, golf, tennis, boxing and MMA/UFC, motorsports and soccer from across the globe. College football and basketball betting is permitted, including in-state teams such as the Iowa Hawkeyes and Iowa State Cyclones.
There are also free to play pools with cash prizes for those who aren’t quite ready to risk their own money betting on sports.
All of the usual lines are here, such as moneylines, points spreads, runlines, pucklines, totals (over/under), props and future bets. Exotic wagers like parlays, round robins and teasers are also available options, as is live in-play betting.
Although Iowa permits wagering on in-state college teams, prop and live in-play bets on these teams are prohibited.
