Barstool Sportsbook Promo Code ACTNEWS1000 Unlocks $1,000 for MNF article feature image

Barstool Sportsbook promo code ACTNEWS1000 will activate a $1,000 risk-free bet for any wager you place on Monday Night Football.

You can take advantage of this offer on any sport. You can bet single games or parlays, too.

If your bet wins, you’ll keep the initial bet and winnings. You’ll be refunded the bet amount in free bets/bonus cash if it loses.

Let’s dive into the specifics of how this offer works below.

How Does a Risk-Free Bet Work?

Sportsbooks all use slightly different language for their promotions, and we have already covered them in-depth.

Here’s how the promo offer works, with an example for Monday Night Football below.

  • Click one of our promotional links or download the Barstool Sportsbook app
  • Make sure you sign up with Barstool Sportsbook promo code ACTNEWS1000 to qualify for the risk-free bet
  • Deposit at least $10
  • Place your first bet

Possible outcomes:

  • If your first bet wins: you keep the winnings and your deposit
  • If  your first bet loses: you’ll get refunded in bonus cash (aka free bets) equal to that first wager

Let’s dive into an example from Monday’s pair of NFL games.

You sign up and deposit $500 and bet it all on the Eagles -2.5 against the Vikings.
  • If the Eagles win: you win $454, and keep the original $500.
  • If the Eagles lose: you’ll get $500 in bonus cash (aka free bets).
  • If your bonus cash bets win: You keep the profit, not the bonus cash.
  • If your bonus cash bets lose: you end up with nothing.

Now pretend the Eagles somehow lose your risk-free bet — you’ve got $500 in bonus cash to wager.

You decide to bet everything on the Steelers moneyline on Thursday Night Football against the Browns at +160.

  • If the Steelers win: you profit $800 ($500 x 1.6) but don’t keep the $500 free bet.
  • If the Steelers lose: you end up with nothing.

So if they win, you’ve now profited $300 ($800 – $500 you put in) on your initial deposit.

Other things to know: You must use your bonus cash within 30 days, or it will be revoked. And you cannot wager on anything longer than -200 odds, or else your bonus cash won’t convert to real cash (but you want to use your free bets on longshots, anyway). That means a -150 bet is OK, but -300 isn’t.

How to Use Your Risk-Free Bets

The optimal way to use your risk-free bets, mathematically anyway, is on plus-money wagers. That’s because you’re getting much more expected value from +250 or +500 wagers — the higher the line, the more value.

But not everyone wants to squander their big free bets on longshots, even if it’s mathematically optimal.

Here are a few ways to use your risk-free bet at Barstool Sportsbook on Monday Night Football and beyond.
