With the start of a new year, DraftKings Iowa Sportsbook is now available for complete online registration. Previously, bettors located in the state of Iowa were required to complete online sports betting registrations at the physical location of partnered in-state sportsbooks, but beginning Jan. 1 2021, that is no longer the case.

New bettors at DraftKings Iowa Sportsbook who register online will receive a $50 free bet bonus in addition to the standard new user offer of $1,000 in free bets.

DraftKings Iowa Sportsbook Mobile Registration Now In Effect

Although Iowa launched its online sports betting platform back in the summer of 2019, those who wished to engage in online wagering had to complete the registration process at a retail casino.

Whereas bettors in other legal sports betting markets could register online from work, home, or, well, anywhere within state limits, those in Iowa were forced to travel to retail casino locations. In the case of DraftKings Iowa, bettors had to visit one of the state’s three Wild Rose Casino locations in Emmitsburg, Clinton or Jefferson.

This particular in-person requirement was restrictive to the initial growth of the Iowa market. Understandably, some prospective bettors were deterred from signing up because of travel. That was particularly true in 2020 when COVID-19 caused significant disruptions. Iowa was not the only state to initially enforce the in-person requirement. Illinois enacted a similar restriction, although the in-person requirement there was lifted, at least for the time being, because of COVID-19 concerns.

Iowa’s in-person registration requirement extended through Dec. 31, 2020 and expires with the arrival of 2021. Therefore, those looking to register for DraftKings Iowa Sportsbook can now do so–without the travel.

What to Bet This Weekend

The arrival of full online registration comes at a fortuitous time for those planning to sign up for DraftKings Iowa.

The College Football Playoff semifinal matchups take place on Friday afternoon between Notre Dame-Alabama and Ohio State-Clemson. DraftKings Sportsbook promo will feature several boosts on both matchups.

Of local interest, the college football slate doesn’t simply stop on New Year’s Day. On Saturday, the Iowa State Cyclones take on Pac-12 champ Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl. Iowa State enters that game as a slight favorite.

While there are plenty of NBA and college basketball contests on the board, NFL Week 17 action provides the other major weekend highlight. For the first and only time this season, all 32 NFL teams are expected to take the field on the same day.

Word is that DraftKings Sportsbook is rolling out an awesome can’t-miss, no-brainer bet on one of the games that will be exclusively available to new and current Iowa players.
