    Everything free in life has strings attached – except, apparently, at a Phoenix sportsbook at 3 p.m. on a Tuesday.

    My girlfriend and I were in Arizona last week visiting some family and decided to kill our final afternoon in the desert meandering around downtown Phoenix… Which led us to the FanDuel Sportsbook.

    I planned to place a couple $5 first-inning baseball bets and hang out for an hour or so, hopefully cashing enough to pay for a drink. Then we took two steps past the metal detector and some FanDuel employee gave us each a $20 voucher. He was handing these things out like candy on Halloween.
