Want to learn more about Barstool Bets contests, access, and free-to-play games? Here’s a quick guide to help answer all your Barstool Bets questions.
What is Barstool Bets?
Barstool Bets is a new site from Barstool Sports focused entirely on gambling. It features a free-to-play game where users can make sports bets to win prizes like cash, experiences, merchandise and more. We also have tons of gambling-related video content to help you make the best bets possible.
How does the game work?
Barstool Bets offers many free-to-enter contests where participants can spend a designated set of points per contest on sports bets for a fixed list of games. Think of your points as dollars, but each winning bet is paid out in points and losing bets return nothing. The winner of the game is the player that has the most points at the end of the contest. More details here.
How do I place a bet?
All you need to get started is a Barstool Bets account. Go to www.barstoolbets.com from your browser or download the Barstool Bets app on iOS (Android coming soon). Simply create an account or if you already have a Barstool Sports account, you may use it to access Barstool Bets. Join any contest from the homepage and make your picks. Learn more here.
What betting odds and lines are displayed?
At Barstool Bets, we will use combinations of moneyline, spread, over/under, result, 2-way and prop bets for each contest. More details here.
How do payouts work?
If a participant wins a cash prize, they will be contacted directly by Barstool Bets to verify their eligibility. Winners are typically notified via the email address associated with their Barstool Bets account no later than 48 hours following the conclusion of the contest. Winning prizes will be sent to the mailing address on file with your account after contest results have been validated.
What sports bets are available in your contests?
At launch, we will have college football, professional football, and professional baseball. Each contest will consist of a single fixed nightly game. As the professional basketball, college basketball and hockey seasons start, they will be available as well. We are constantly looking to add new sports and are very open to feedback on what participants want to see.
