Everything To Know About Potential Barstool Sportsbook Massachusetts Launch
Sports betting will soon be legal in the state of Massachusetts. Gov. Charlie Baker just needs to sign the bill into law, and once the law becomes official, expect many of the top sportsbooks in the country to apply for a license to join the market.
One of those future Massachusetts betting apps is sure to be Barstool Sportsbook Massachusetts.
Barstool Sports has its roots in Massachusetts, first beginning as a print publication in 2003 in the greater Boston area before moving online in 2007. Founder Dave Portnoy had the vision to become a leader in online sports media, and 15 years later, that’s absolutely the case.
One of the catalysts for the growth of Barstool Sports was the 2018 legalization of sports betting in the U.S., which gave Barstool the opportunity to make headway in the world of online sports betting.
In 2020, Barstool Sportsbook launched, and ever since, the brand has exploded in popularity. Barstool Sports is jointly owned by The Chernin Group and Penn National Gaming, and it will be one of the top betting apps when/if it launches in the state of Massachusetts.
With Massachusetts sports betting expected to launch sometime during the upcoming NFL season, we are here to tell you everything you need to know about the potential launch of Barstool Sportsbook Massachusetts.
How To Bet At Barstool Massachusetts
In typical Dave Portnoy fashion, the Barstool founder tweeted that his Barstool Sportsbook Massachusetts brand is guaranteed both retail and online sports betting licenses in Massachusetts. Penn National Gaming, which has a stake in Barstool Sports, owns Plainridge Park Casino in Plainville, Massachusetts, so there is certainly a very strong possibility that Barstool Sportsbook Massachusetts will have a retail location in that casino.
As there is currently no timeline for the launch of sports betting in Massachusetts, it is not certain when operators like Barstool Sportsbook will be able to apply for licenses. Once this changes, we'll be sure to update you on the latest regarding Barstool's push for Massachusetts market access.
When and if Barstool Sportsbook Massachusetts launches, it will be easy to sign up and get started. Barstool Massachusetts is poised to be one of the best sports betting sites in the state. This is how you sign up:
- Find and download the Barstool sports betting app via the Apple App Store for iOS users or the Google Play Store for Android users
- Register for a new sportsbook account to get a $10 no-deposit bonus
- Make a new deposit for at least $10
- Get a risk-free first bet for up to $1,000
Based on evidence from other states, new Barstool users typically get a $10 no-deposit bonus just for creating a Barstool Sportsbook account. In addition, new customers then usually get a risk-free first bet from Barstool worth up to $1,000 once they have made their first deposit.
The risk-free first bet means you can make your first wager for up to $1,000, and if it loses, you’ll get back the same value in equivalent site credit.
Once you sign up and have your sportsbook account created, you will be able to bet on all of your favorite sports, such as the NFL, NBA, MLB, and the NHL, and you will be able to bet on all of your favorite sports teams, like the New England Patriots, the Boston Celtics, the Boston Red Sox, and the Boston Bruins.
Barstool Massachusetts is likely to offer its sports bettors its typically great product: Competitive odds, live streaming, odds boosts and more. There will also probably be a loyalty program.
What Does Barstool Sportsbook MA Promo Code Offer?
When/if Barstool Sportsbook Massachusetts goes live, we expect it will offer new users not one, but two new customer offers. The first of the Massachusetts promo codes from Barstool is likely to be the $10 no-deposit bonus.
Barstool Sportsbook also usually offers a risk-free first bet worth up to $1,000. To claim this offer, new customers just have to make a deposit and place a first bet at Barstool Sportsbook, and if it loses, they get up to $1,000 in site credit. The bonus funds come with a 1x rollover and must be used on a sporting event with -200 odds or greater. Any earnings won through the site credits will be paid out to the user in the form of real cash.
For example, you could bet on the Patriots in NFL betting markets. Let’s say they are playing the Bills and the Patriots are +3 underdogs on the spread. If you bet $500 on the Patriots and they fail to cover, it’s OK, because Barstool will give you back a free bet worth $500, the equivalent of your losing stake.
Both the $10 bonus just for signing up and the risk-free first bet for up to $1,000 are great deals, and we expect them to go live at Barstool Massachusetts if/when the sportsbook gets permission to launch. Stay tuned!
