The US is slowly but surely catching up with the rest of the world when it comes to sports betting online. For a long time, the US in all states severely restricted any form of online sports betting. That however, is changing by the day as different states are putting in place measures to legalize online sports betting. One state that recently legalized online sports betting is the state of Tennessee. Punters ought to know that even though sports’ betting has been legalized, they can only start placing their bets in November, 2020 as all the online bookmakers awarded operating licenses are set to officially launch on 1 November, 2020. They are just three online bookmakers that will launch on the 1st of November – however, more applications are being reviewed the Tennessee gambling authority meaning more will come in the near future.
One of the three bookmakers set to launch in November is DraftKings. DraftKings is one of the most popular bookmaker in the states where online sports betting is legal hence it’s no surprise that it is one of the pioneering bookmakers to set up shop in Tennessee. While the bookmaker will officially launch on 1 November, it already is allowing punters to register their accounts. Punters who register before the official launch date get to benefit from a lucrative pre-launch special bonus. This pre-launch special bonus comes in the form of a $50 free bet! The free bet will only be used once the bookmaker officially launches its sports betting app. Punters ought to note that failure to register before the launch date will automatically mean failure to receive the $50 free bet. As such, it’s imperative that all Tennessee sports punters quickly register their DraftKings accounts as soon as possible.
DraftKings’ rival FanDuel is also one of the three bookmakers set to launch on 1 November. FanDuel is a popular name amongst most punters and as such, its name only will do much in attracting punters once it launches. This will also be aided by the fact that FanDuel does already operate in Tennessee albeit only in a Daily Fantasy capacity. FanDuel has already made assurances that once the sports betting app launches, the Daily Fantasy app and the sports betting app will integrate meaning punters will enjoy these two under one app. No need to use different apps – this is great as it enables seamless switching between fantasy betting and sports betting. As of yet, FanDuel hasn’t outlined any bonus and promotional perk geared towards those who register their accounts.
BetMGM is quickly making its mark in the online gaming industry in the US. The bookmaker started off as the online platform for Nevada’s famous hotel and casino, the MGM. However, its operations have now transcended beyond the confines of Nevada as it operates in other states that have legalized sports betting. BetMGM will be one of the three bookmakers to launch on November 1 in Tennessee – a move that will further cement BetMGM as one of the leading online bookmakers in the US.
