BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Following the state’s passing of HB361, allowing fantasy football to return to Alabama, fantasy sports websites are returning as well.

DraftKings, one of the premier daily fantasy sports sites, is welcoming players back with open arms and bonus rewards just for living in Alabama. 

The site will give users deposit bonus matches up to $25 and will also feature “Free Contest Friday” for $15K in giveaways during the first three weeks from launch. 

Late last month, Gov. Kay Ivey signed the bill which would bring fantasy sport betting back to the state for the first time since 2016. Today, DraftKings was able to return to Alabama residents.
