Deposit bonus is offered to users upon first deposit and special promotional offers. Bonuses are earned gradually after you enter and complete paid contests. Your balance is shown in the top right corner of the site as 'pending bonus' and is also displayed in your My Account tab.
Deposit bonus is released as real cash at a rate of 4% of the entry fee of the contest you enter. For example, if you enter a $25 contest, $1 of deposit bonus will be released into your main funds account. Users collect deposit bonus upon settlement of the contest entered. If a contest or entry is canceled, your entry fee will be refunded and no bonuses will be earned.
Gradually releasing bonuses as you play prevents fraud and discourages multi-accounting. Please note that your deposit bonus can only be used on FanDuel and cannot be withdrawn as cash.
Deposit bonus rewards loyal users who play consistently on FanDuel. First time deposit bonuses do not expire so the funds are available until they've been earned and spent.
