The Barstool Sports brand has skyrocketed in recent years, branching out in a variety of different markets, but its movement into the online sports betting space has been years in the making.
With an extensive history of betting content, the company’s gaming deal with industry giant Penn National put into motion the birth of Barstool Sportsbook, which has experienced strong early success in a number of legal betting states.
What to Expect From Barstool Sportsbook Virginia
The Barstool Sportsbook Virginia app does a nice job of blending the brand’s essence into a sophisticated betting app that non-Barstool fans and/or those unfamiliar with the company will appreciate.
The app doesn’t take itself too seriously, creating a fun and easy way to wager on a variety of events. It also uses a mix of its top personalities within the app’s features to brand odds boosts and other daily specials, creating a familiar feel for fans.
Still, the strength of Barstool Sportsbook Virginia is the overall app design and functionality that is strong enough to compete with rival apps like DraftKings Sportsbook an FanDuel Sportsbook.
Ultimately, it offers a clean interface that makes it easy to navigate in and around a variety of betting markets. Competitive odds, a variety of daily odds boosts and betting specials create consistent opportunities to maximize payouts.
The Barstool Sportsbook Virginia Promo
Beyond the day-to-day features, Barstool Sportsbook Virginia offers a competitive new player promo bonus with a $1,000 risk-free first bet.
Although this is basically standard fare when it comes to such bonuses, the app also offers a $10 registration bonus (which does not require any deposit), sweetening the deal.
As a point of comparison, FanDuel offers new players a $1,000 risk-free first bet, BetMGM offers a $600 risk-free first bet, and DraftKings offers up to $1,050 in free bets. So while the Barstool new player promo doesn’t blow the competition out of the water, it certainly stacks up with the market’s biggest players.
In the long run, the overall quality of the app, paired with the power of the Barstool brand should help it emerge as one the top options in the VA online sports betting market.
