BetMGM bonus code ACTION applies to most users in states where the sportsbook is available. That nets you a $1,000 risk-free bet on any sporting event.

There are other good sign-up offers, depending on which state you live in. Here are all four:

  1. ACTION: Gets new users $1,000 risk-free on their first wager. Think of it like insurance.
  2. ACTIONYARD: You'll get $200 in free bets if the NFL team you bet gets 1+ passing yard. Kansas, Illinois and Louisiana only.
  3. ACTIONOHIO: MGM will give you $200 in free bets. No deposit required.
  4. Maryland:Use this link to get $200 in free bets ahead of launch later this month. No deposit required either.

New York does not have any offers available right now.

How the Risk-Free Bet Works

Think of it like this — BetMGM is spotting you the bet amount, and you get to keep the winnings if you cash the bet.

Here's an example on Sunday Night Football.

Say you take Deebo Samuel at +130 to find the end zone for the 49ers against the Chargers. You deposited $100 and bet it all on Deebo.

  • If Deebo scores, you'll pocket $130, and keep the original $100. That's $230 in your account now you can do whatever you want with.
  • If Deebo doesn't score, you get $100 in free bets back.

Now what if it does lose and you have to get the free bets back? Here's how free bets work at BetMGM.

A Guide to Free Bets

Alright, so let's say you lose your first $100 bet and get five, $20 free bets back. You use four of them on Monday Night Football between the Eagles and Commanders.

And let's pretend they all win! Using these four bets, you'll profit $360 after only a $100 deposit. You don't keep the $20 when you win these bets. You only keep the winnings.

Heinicke 2+ Pass TD+140
Commanders +7.5+120
Sanders TD+110
Dotson TD+350
Total Profits$360

Believe it or not, free bets generally convert to cash at a 70% rate normally, so this is an extreme example.


Similar to the risk-free bet, this offer is a means to acquire free bets either way. But you get them whether your bet wins or loses, which makes it a better offer.

Here's the lowdown:

  1. Use code ACTIONYARD at checkout
  2. Bet $10 on any NFL game
  3. Get $200 in free bets if your team throws for a single yard

So, let's say I bet $10 on the same 49ers-Chargers game but with this promo offer instead. I'll have $200 in free bets regardless of the outcome. I can use this $200 on Commanders-Eagles or anything else.

If I win with my free bets, I collect the profits and they go away. Lose, and I collect nothing and also lose the free bets.

Ohio & Maryland Pre-Registration 

Two new states will launch sports betting in the next few months. BetMGM is offering an excellent sign-up bonus in both states — $200 in free bets with no deposit required. Because acquiring new customers during state launches is so important, you won't get a better offer than this.

Here's how to claim them.

  • Maryland, in less than two weeks most likely: Use this link
  • Ohio, on Jan. 1: Use code ACTIONOHIO
