- NASCAR season is beginning and lines are up for the Daytona 500 as well as other NASCAR races.
- The car racing organization has partnered with Penn National Gaming to get in on the popularity of legal sports betting in the U.S.
- The gaming company has developed a mobile application for NASCAR races that gives users the opportunity to win money with each race.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The Daytona 500 is geared up to start this weekend and with a free app for sports bettors that are betting on NASCAR.
Penn National Gaming has become the first official gaming partner with NASCAR in a three-year partnership.
This is also the first deal the gaming company has made with a professional sports organization. Their app will allow bettors the opportunity to win money without risking any of their own.
Free To Play App To Win Money On NASCAR
NASCAR Finish Line will be a free mobile game offered by Penn National that will allow users a shot at winning $50,000 for each race. The partnership comes with an extension with the Kansas Speedway until 2026 for the “Hollywood Casino 400.” That race will happen on October 18.
The free mobile gaming application can be downloaded with both iOS and Android users as well as other mobile devices. Players that choose the correct winners of the races will have the chance of winning $50,000. The game will begin with the Daytona 500 and is already available for download.
This partnership will allow Penn National to continue to have various deals for sports betting on NASCAR events throughout the season.
Genius Sports, NASCAR’s official data provider for sportsbooks, will expand upon the wagers offered with multiple new in-race betting lines that will be available for the 2020 Cup Series. Penn National is the only sportsbook offering the chance to win money through their new NASCAR mobile gaming application without having to put any real money down.
Penn National will offer exclusive deals at all of their 18 retail sports betting lounges nationwide for NASCAR. Their mobile sports betting application will be launched in August 2020 and will include all of the NASCAR live in-race betting information for races including the new bets from Genius.
NASCAR believes that this partnership will help fan promotion and increase viewership and interest in the sport.
Other Sportsbook Deals For NASCAR
While online sportsbooks, as well as retail sportsbooks within the United States, have multiple lines to bet on the Daytona 500 and other NASCAR events. But, there are currently no promotions exclusive to the sport being advertised.
However, there are many bonuses at online sports betting sites for new members or loyal members that can be put toward betting on NASCAR events.
For all NASCAR sports bettors, using an internet sportsbook’s general promotions to fund their bets on the races would be a way to gear promotions toward the track even when they are not exclusive NASCAR offers.
These promotions along with the best lines on the races can be found online. Brick and mortar establishments may run their own promotions for the Daytona 500 while it’s happening but none are currently advertising for them. Engines for the big race will start on Sunday, February 16 at 2:30 p.m. EST and will be televised by the FOX network.
