  • DraftKings Sportsbook has a new UFC 273 promo out now
  • Bet $5 on any fighter to win at UFC 273 and you will unlock $100 in free bets at DraftKings Sportsbook
  • Below, see how to claim this DraftKings Sportsbook UFC 273 promo

As the sports calendar enters a period of relative quiet (after March Madness and before the NBA and NHL playoffs) the UFC is picking up the slack. UFC 273 this weekend features a stacked card highlighted by Alexander Volkanovski defending his featherweight title against the Korean Zombie, Jung Chan-sung.

DraftKings Sportsbook has a new UFC 273 promo on offer starting today. Bet just $5 on any fighter to win his/her bout at UFC 273 on Saturday (April 9) and you will get $100 in free bets regardless of whether your fighters wins or loses their fight.

Claim DraftKings Sportsbook UFC 273 Promo

To claim this DraftKings Sportsbook UFC 273 promo, follow these steps.

First, click on the DraftKings banner directly above this section. This will redirect you to a DraftKings Sportsbook sign-up page. After creating your account, make a minimum $5 deposit. After depositing, opt in to the UFC 273 promo on DraftKings promos page.

Then place a minimum $5 wager on any fighter to win their bout at UFC 273. The wagers must be made pre-fight, but can be on literally any of the fighters on the card.

Whether the fighter you picked wins or gets KOed in the first 20 seconds, you will land $100 worth of free bets once your bet settles.



The bonus money will be paid out as four $25 free bets which must be used within seven days.

How to Use This DraftKings Sportsbook UFC Promo

Since the qualifying wager does not need to win in order for the customer to get the bonus money, it’s not as important to astutely handicap your first wager compared to some other betting promos.

If I was eligible for this promo, I would put the $5 wager on one of the fighters in the first bout on the card. The free bets will be available shortly after the qualifying wager is settled, which means you should be able to use the free bets on later bouts at UFC 273.

The first fights on the card are Julio Arce (-190) vs Daniel Santos (+160), Piera Rodriguez (-120) vs Kay Hansen (+100), Anthony Hernandez (-190) vs Josh Fremd (+160), and Alexey Oleynik (-105) vs Jared Vanderaa (-115).

The bouts are not listed in chronological order on the DraftKings Sportsbook UFC page, but those are the four fights on the preliminary card. If you use this UFC 273 bonus on one of those fights, you should have the $100 in free bets available for the main card.

Who Is Eligible for DraftKings UFC 273 Bonus?

All DraftKings Sportsbook bonuses are limited to bettors who are physically present in one of the states where DraftKings is currently operating. As of now, that includes the following states: Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, or Wyoming.

In addition, this DraftKings Sportsbook bonus is only available to new DK customers making a first-time deposit. That means if you have previously made a deposit at any DraftKings Sportsbook site, you cannot claim this UFC 273 promo. For instance, if you used to bet at DraftKings Louisiana but migrated to the Empire State and are now looking to use DraftKings New York, you won’t unfortunately be able to claim this promo.

The offer will be open until the final fight of the night at UFC 273. But the qualifying wager must be made before the fight begins. Live wagers do not qualify. You cannot cash out the qualifying wager, either. The qualifying bet must settle in order to receive the DraftKings Sportsbook bonus money.
