  • Using BetMGM bonus code ACTION, you can get a first bet on the house up to $1,000.
  • Learn more about the offer and how it works below.

BetMGM bonus code ACTION will get all new users a first bet on the house, up to $1,000. It’s eligible for any college football, World Cup or NFL game this weekend.

That means if your first bet loses, you’ll be refunded in free bets, up to $1,000. We’ll cover some examples below to explain it.

How this Bonus Code Works

It’s easy to show how this example works with a game from Saturday’s epic college football slate.

We’ll cover LSU vs. Georgia, then dive into Sunday’s NFL slate for our second portion.

Making Your First Wager

Let’s pretend I’ve deposited $1,000 at BetMGM and want to bet it all on Purdue vs. Michigan in the Big Ten Championship Game.

The optimal way to use promo wagers and free bets is on longshots. You can read more about the math here. Because the book is spotting you, you want the upside.

A $1,000 bet on Purdue to win would pay $6,000, since the Boilermakers are priced at +600.

  • If Purdue wins, I’ll collect my $6,000 and keep my original $1,000. I’ll now have $7,000 in my account to continue betting or withdraw.
  • If Purdue loses, I get $1,000 back in free bets, which will be split up into 10, $100 free bets.

So what is a free bet exactly? Let’s cover that now.

Using Free Bets

If you lose that first bet, you’ll get free bets back. But then you must turn them into cash by winning.

A free bet works like this — you keep the cash if it wins, but you don’t keep the bet amount.

Say I put a $100 free bet on the Dolphins moneyline at +160 against the 49ers.

  • If the Dolphins win, I profit $160, but I don’t keep the $100 free bet.
  • If the Dolphins lose, the free bet goes away.

How to Use Bonus Bets on Saturday

Big 12 Championship Game: Is TCU a team of destiny, or will Kansas State potentially spoil their College Football Playoff dreams?

USA vs. Netherlands: This might be a good spot to back the Americans, despite the stature of the Dutch.

ATS Betting Trends for Conference Championship Weekend: Underdogs that failed to cover multiple games in a row have gone 19-4 ATS (82.6%) in their conference championship. They have covered by a gaudy average margin of 10.93 points. This trend applies to North Texas and North Carolina this weekend.

Conversely, conference title favorites that have covered multiple games in a row have gone just 1-10 ATS against underdogs on multiple-game ATS losing streaks. This unfavorable trend only applies to Tulane this week.
