DraftKings Sportsbook has officially launched its Same Game Parlay (SGP) feature. SGPs allow users to pick various spreads, totals, and props for a specific contest. For its debut, bettors can try out the product and receive a free $10 bet.
SGPs have been a trending feature on many sportsbooks. Instead of selecting legs of a parlay on multiple games, they can all be taken in one. This makes it handy when bettors are limited in contests to choose from or simply want to focus on one game.
How To Use Same Game Parlay On DraftKings
Contests compatible with the new feature will be designated with a “+SGP” symbol next to it. After selecting the contest, a slide button is used to show all props available for the Same Game Parlay. At this time, SGPs are available for Major League Baseball and select soccer matches. It should be implemented in other sports, such as football and basketball, as those seasons roll out.
At least two picks must be made for the SGP to work. Some legs are not compatible with each other. For example, a user cannot select a soccer team to win by a score of 2-0 and also have them score over 1.5 goals. Picks that do not increase the overall odds of the parlay will also be removed.
Popularity Rises For Same Game Parlays
Other gambling companies have utilized SGPs in their sportsbooks to increase wagering. FanDuel, PointsBet, and BetMGM also offer this feature in similar sports. Frequent promotions include boosting the odds on the same game parlay or submitting a risk-free bet on particular contests.
