We know how excited you are about this weekend's Super Bowl. You've already worked out how to get a Super Bowl live stream (it's even free in some places), bought your Super Bowl jerseys and even grabbed a special Super Bowl TV deal. You've said the words 'Super Bowl' so much that they're almost beginning to lose meaning!

But if you've been waiting for a moment of inspiration to hit you before looking through odds or sorting your daily fantasy roster, then we're here to help.

We've spotted that FanDuel - one of the US's very biggest daily fantasy sports providers - has got some introductory offers on fantasy and its sportsbook. These are particularly attractive to those new to online sports betting or people who only consider this kind of thing around Super Bowl weekend.

Wow...that's a big pot of cash to splash! Sign up and make your first wager within seven days and, if it loses, FanDuel says that it will refund you up to $500 back in sales credit (not cold hard cash, we're afraid). You then have to use that within 14 days of receipt - be sure to read the full Ts&Cs before you bet.

FanDuel is probably the most recognizable name in fantasy sports out there. And it's laying on a massive $1 million first prize in its 'NFL Big Game Bowl' game, and a $3 million pot in total. And if you've never played before, you'll get a $5 bonus with your first deposit.

Thanks to a Supreme Court ruling back in 2018, there is no longer a federal law against online sports betting. It's now up for separate states to decide whether or not they want to legalise gambling.

To date, only a few have. That's why FanDuel says that you have to be physically present in Indiana, New Jersey or Pennsylvania to play on its sportsbook service, while West Virginia gets added to that list for FanDuel's fantasy sports service. There's also a minimum age limit of 21 to use any of its services.

Again, all this information is on the FanDuel website. So if you're unsure on any legal requirement to play, then don't hesitate to look through its Ts&Cs.

Gambling responsibly

You probably don't need us to tell you that any form of gambling comes with serious risks and should never be undertaken as a silver bullet to solve your financial troubles. It's worth remembering the phrase...the house always wins!

If you suffer from a gambing problem or suspect somebody you know does, then we strongly suggest that you give the National Problem Gambling Hotline a call on 1-800-522-4700 to discuss it with a professional. It’s so important to make gambling safer for yourself and loved ones.
