Ahead of the upcoming NFL season, DraftKings Sportsbook has just launched a brand-new product labeled the “Same Game Parlay”, that is sure to enthuse seasoned parlay aficionados and same game multi newbies alike.
Same Game Parlays or SGPs allow users to combine various spreads, totals and props for a specific contest into a one-price parlay that will pay-out if all of your selections hit the mark.
The new fantastically fun feature will allow users to parlay multiple events from the same game into one bet, giving bettors the chance to built their own unique, customized multi-part selections for their desired fixture.
To help launch this awesome new function, DraftKings are offering all users a $10 FREE BET when placing their first MLB same game parlay on their sportsbook!
The offer – which is available to both new and existing customers – has a $5 maximum stake and is available for users in CO, IL, IN, IA, MI, NJ, PA, TN, & WV.
How To Use Same Game Parlay (SGP) On DraftKings
Events that are compatible with DraftKing’s new feature will show a “+SGP” symbol right next to it and after selecting the game in question, a slide button will show all the props available for the Same Game Parlay.
Right now, Same Game Parlays are available for Major League Baseball and a selection of soccer fixtures, though it won’t be long before it’s ready to use for all of your other favorite sports, including NFL, NBA, and NHL, when the new seasons start.
For your SGP to work, at least two props must be added to your bet. It’s important to remember that some legs won’t work well with others, for example, you won’t boost your odds by selecting a soccer team to win 2-0 AND the same team to net over 1.5 goals, because you’re essentially backing the same thing to happen twice.
In fact, props and picks that don’t increase the overall parlay price will be automatically removed.
Same Game Parlay popularity on the rise
With their latest product launch, DraftKings has joined a number of other U.S. sportsbooks by increasing their parlay offerings.
Same game parlays have seen a massive increase in popularity in Europe over the past couple of years where they are commonly known as Bet Builders or Build A Bet features, and the customizability of same-game multi-wagering can add an extra level of fun to the game or event your betting on.
