  • Arm yourself with some free cash this weekend ahead of a monster sports slate, as BetMGM bonus code ACTION will unlock a $1,000 first bet on the house.
  • We'll explain all about this offer below, and use examples from the World Cup and Army-Navy game.
  • Read on to learn more about all the bonus offers BetMGM has this weekend.

BetMGM bonus code ACTION can get all new users a $1,000 first bet on the house. That means if your first bet on the platform loses, you’ll be refunded an equal amount in free bets.

College football season is winding down but we’ve still got a loaded sports slate — two World Cup quarterfinals, Army-Navy, UFC 282 and a host of college basketball action.

How the $1,000 Bonus Code Works

Alright, so you’re signed up at BetMGM and ready to dive in.

We put together a sportsbook promo guide if you’re confused about the different terms that books use. And you should learn all about sports betting first if you’re unsure what a point spread or moneyline is.

Making Your First Bet

You want to put your entire deposit on your first wager. It’s the optimal way to do it.

So you deposit $500 and bet it all on Morocco to beat Portugal on Saturday morning. The best way to use free bets and promo wagers is on longshots, so that’s what we’ll do.

Morocco is priced at +450 at BetMGM (that’s to win in regulation, not to advance).

  • If Morocco wins, I’ll win $2,250 ($500 x 4.5) and keep the original $500.
  • If Morocco loses, I’ll lose my $500 but get $500 back in free bets.

Using Free Bets

Alright, now it’s time to use your free bets. Hopefully you don’t need to get them, but many times you will.

Here’s how free bets work. It’s like BetMGM is spotting you the bet, and you keep the winnings if it wins.

So if Morocco loses, say you put $100 of your $500 in free bets on Jared Gordon +200 against Paddy Pimblett on Saturday night in UFC 282.

  • If Gordon wins, you win $200 but don’t keep the $100 in free bets.
  • If Gordon loses, your free bet goes away.

How Does Bonus Code ACTIONYARD Work?

This promo is lower risk than bonus code ACTION and it’s pretty simple. Here’s how it works.

  • Just bet $10 on the Army-Navy game.
  • If the team you’re betting throws for 1+ yard, you get $200 in free bets. Easy enough!

Free bets, if you didn’t read the section above, are almost like bets on the house. You keep the winnings, but you don’t keep the free bet itself.

BetMGM will return your $200 in four, $50 free bets. You can use them on anything — CFB, NFL, World Cup, etc.

So let’s say you get the $200 in free bets from the Army-Navy game, and use all $200 on the Jets moneyline at +400 on Sunday against the Bills.

  • If the Jets win, you profit $800, but don’t keep the $200 in free bets.
  • If the Jets lose, your free bets go away, and you’re just left with your deposit.
