DraftKings Free to Play Day

The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, or PASPA, was repealed on May 14, 2018, allowing for the legalization of sports betting. And DraftKings Sportsbook is celebrating the anniversary of that day by offering a free bet to their players on their Free to Bet Day. This celebration of a landmark day in American sports betting history offers some added value to bettors in states that have since legalized sports gambling.
