The main card is predicted to feature Miocic (-110) and Cormier (-110), but the offer will still apply to the main card even if one of the fighters is replaced.
The boosted odds promotion for the UFC 252 main card match-up is available to new DraftKings users in the following states:
UFC 252 Special Offer May Boost Midwestern Sign-Ups
DraftKings’ UFC 252 offer comes at an excellent time for Illinois UFC fans and new sports bettors. Operators use promotional bets and offers like this one to attract new players, especially in new or growing markets.
In this case, Illinois is a perfect market for DraftKings’ 252-1 odds boost. The company just launched its online sportsbook in the Land of Lincoln in partnership with Casino Queen in East St. Louis. DraftKings’ only current competitor in The Prairie State is BetRivers, and some believe the latter has the upper hand due to Rivers’ proximity to Chicago and Illinois’ in-person registration requirement.
But DraftKings has made its mark in many regulated states, and this promotion is a prime example of how the company builds a loyal audience. Still, Illinois bettors looking to take advantage of the UFC 252 offer need to visit Casino Queen to confirm their accounts before they’ll be able to actually place a wager.
Iowa has the same stipulation. To the east, though, things are easier for players. Indiana bettors can sign up completely online and immediately place wagers.
