Place a Bet for America on Saturday Through Viva La Troops

by Tanner KernDecember 10, 2021

Barstool Sportsbook has become a serious contender in the legal sports betting industry because of its epic promotions. Nearly every week, a $50 to $100 bet can win new users a hoodie or a jacket.

These are usually sponsored by the various betting personalities at the company like Dave Portnoy, Big Cat, Stu Feiner, Megan Makin Money, and Kelly in Vegas.

This weekend, Army and Navy will play their annual rivalry game at MetLife Stadium, and Barstool is running a different type of promotion. If you are in a state where Barstool Sportsbook is live, a bet on the troops will pay dividends for our Armed Forces.

Sports betting is a big business in the United States, and Portnoy is using his power for good which is very commendable.

Viva La Troops

Army vs. Navy is America’s Game, and betting is becoming America’s favorite hobby. The promotion, which was a brainchild of Portnoy, is titled “Viva La Troops.”

Viva La Troops applies to new and existing users who have not made a first-time deposit on the platform. Players who make a first-time deposit of $100+ and make a single bet of $100+ will get their first-time deposit matched as a $100 donation.

The two benefiting charities are the Fisher House Foundation and Semper Fi Fund. Both charities do a lot of work with current military members, veterans, and families to support our Armed Forces.

The Fisher House Foundation’s mission is to build comfort homes where military and veteran families can stay free of charge while a loved one is in the hospital. The Semper Fi Fund is dedicated to assisting combat wounded, critically ill, and injured service members, veterans, and military families from all branches of the Armed Forces.

When announcing the promotion, Portnoy stated, “This is my favorite sporting event I have gone to besides Patriots’ Super Bowls. The pageantry, everything about it, I love it. It’s a very special game, and I thought, how can we do some good and raise some money.”

Barstool Sportsbook is currently available in PA, NJ, CO, VA, MI, IN, WV, IA, TN, AZ, and IL. To register for the site, here is the link.

If you are not in a legal state, you can still support the charities by purchasing a Viva La Troops hoodie here.

Whether you’re “Go Army, Beat Navy” or “Go Navy, Beat Army,” make sure you get involved in this awesome fundraiser from Portnoy and Barstool Sportsbook.
