Iowa gets a new online sportsbook today with the launch of theScore Bet, now available via iOS app and Android app. Already available in Indiana, Colorado, and New Jersey, Iowa marks the fourth state for this growing sports betting app.

Leading up to the Iowa launch, theScore Bet entered a multi-state access partnership with Penn National Gaming (partner of Barstool Sportsbook, which is not currently available in Iowa). Under the partnership, theScore will eventually in states that have yet to legalize online sports betting, such as Texas and Missouri. 

“We’re thrilled to introduce our mobile sportsbook to Iowans as the college basketball season heats up ahead of the tournament in March,” said John Levy, Founder and CEO of theScore. “We have a large base of theScore app users in Iowa and now, with the launch of theScore Bet, fans will have easy access to our integrated and technology driven sports betting experience.”

Overview of theScore Bet In Iowa and Bonus Offers

theScore Bet is designed to coordinate with theScore app, which offers a range of stats, analytics, and betting predictions across college and professional sports in the US and abroad. While it’s not a requirement to have both apps on your device, the idea is that you can use one to stay informed and the other to place bets based on the information.

theScore Bet currently offers three different welcome bonuses for new members in Iowa:

  • $200 Iowa Hometown Special: Get a $200 free bet on an upcoming game played by an Iowa college team (maximum odds of +300).
  • $500 Risk-Free Bet: Place your first bet on any game with odds -200 or longer. If you lose, you’ll receive a freebet of equal value up to $500.
  • $1,000 First Deposit Match: theScore Bet will match your first deposit by 100% up to $1,000. Bonus is credited every time you bet 5% of deposit amount.

Be sure to read the terms and conditions before opting in. For example, you can do the Iowa Hometown Special and the first-deposit match, but you can’t do the Hometown Special with the risk-free bet.
