How to Sign Up for DraftKings Iowa Sportsbook

A new year here is here and so are new betting rules in the state of Iowa that make it much easier to get started with DraftKings Iowa Sportsbook.

Legal sports betting went live in Iowa back in August 2019, but initial regulations required sports bettors to travel to designated retail casino locations to complete the registration process. Such requirements weren’t entirely unique to Iowa. Illinois online sports betting previously imposed a similar restriction last summer. With 2021 now here, however, the in-person registration requirement is lifted, allowing bettors to sign up for DraftKings Iowa from anywhere in the state.

To celebrate the occasion, DraftKings Sportsbook is giving new IA bettors who sign up a free $50 bet bonus in addition to its $1,000 in free bets sign up promo.

How to Sign Up for DraftKings Iowa Sportsbook

Getting started with DraftKings Iowa Sportsbook is an easy process that only takes a moment.

  • Begin the registration process–from anywhere in the state–by clicking right here.
  • Make a first deposit by using one of DraftKings’ several convenient funding methods (PayPal, online checking, debit/credit card).

It’s a straightforward process that will have you ready to kickoff the new year with quick and immediate access to all that DraftKings Iowa has to offer.

Previously, the in-person registration requirement meant bettors had to travel to onsite locations in order to finish the registration process, which, frankly, limited the overall growth of the Iowa sports betting market. That’s because from DraftKings’ initial 2019 launch through the end of 2020, bettors had to drive to one of three Wild Rose Casino locations to complete the registration process. So, without a trip to Emmetsburg, Jefferson, or Clinton, bettors could not sign up.

Now, however, they can simply register, finish the activation process, and begin betting from anywhere within Iowa state limits.

College Football at DraftKings Iowa Sportsbook

The 2021 sports calendar is stacked right from the start. New Year’s Day features two College Football Playoff semifinal contests between Alabama-Notre Dame and Clemson-Ohio State.

Currently, Alabama is the overwhelming favorite to win this year’s national title. A look at the current championship odds:

  • Alabama -143
  • Clemson +175
  • Ohio State +900
  • Notre Dame +3000

The Crimson Tide enter play against Notre Dame as a massive 20-point favorite. Meanwhile, Clemson is a 7.5-point favorite over Ohio State.

Of course, these games aren’t the only two on the weekend schedule. Of local interest, the Iowa State Cyclones take on the Oregon Ducks on Saturday afternoon in the Fiesta Bowl. Iowa State is a four-point favorite in that matchup.
