Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner. We’re counting down the final days by taking a look at the multitude of betting and fantasy options available for the Big Game.
In addition to traditional wagers, major operators like DraftKings and FanDuel are rolling out free pools and squares contests that offer over $1 million in cumulative prizes.
Here’s a glimpse at some of the best free-to-play options available at Tennessee sportsbooks.
DraftKings’ Super Bowl Squares contest returns in 2021, this year sponsored by Wrangler.
Players can compete for cash prizes from anywhere within the US. Since no deposit is necessary, this provides the perfect opportunity for new users to wet their feet in the sports betting arena.
In honor of the 55th Super Bowl, a pool of $55,000 is up for grabs.
First, sign up for a DraftKings account here. Then you can pre-select one square from the game grid before kickoff. Keep in mind – once a square is selected, it cannot be changed.
Then, numbers will be randomly assigned to the game’s columns and rows and revealed to players at the start of the game.
Users win cash prizes when the last digit of each teams’ score matches the number in their square at the end of any quarter.
Prize money is divvied up between the winning contestants after each quarter.
Various other free-to-play games will be popping up between now and Super Bowl Sunday as well.
DraftKings is also running a Free $55 Million Prediction Challenge 4th Quarter Pool.
Players answer various 4th quarter Super Bowl questions for a shot at their share of a $1 million prize pool.
FanDuel’s Super Bowl bingo
FanDuel is bringing back its own version of a squares pool this year with its companion Super Bowl game – Big Game Bingo. The game is free to play, with $100,000 in prizes up for grabs.
Players can sign up for a FanDuel account, claim a bingo card, and sit back and watch the game.
The game’s 24 bingo squares include popular prop bets and quirky pop culture squares. When a square hits during the game, it is automatically marked on a player’s digital card.
Game square props include:
- Field goal made
- Cannons fired
- 2nd half illegal block
- Offensive holding
- Defensive pass interference
- Muffed snap
- 2nd half booth TD review
After filling five consecutive squares, the only thing a player has left to do is call Bingo.
The top prize for this contest is $10,000. Other prizes include free DFS tickets and cash.
For a small entry fee of $4.44, users can also compete in FanDuel’s $3.55 Million NFL Big Game Bowl, where the top winner receives a $1 million prize.
With such abundant winnings at stake, this year’s Super Bowl is shaping up to be the most wagered on event in sports betting history.
