BetMGM Bonus Code ACTION Offers $1,000 for Epic CFB Weekend article feature image
  • A college football weekend with this much on the line calls for some bonus offers. BetMGM bonus code unlocks $1,000 worth of value, if you wager that much on your first bet.
  • We'll cover how it works below with some examples from USC vs. Utah and other CFB games during conference championship weekend.

BetMGM bonus code ACTION will get new bettors a first bet on the house up to $1,000 when they wager on any college football game this weekend.

That means if your first bet loses, you’ll be refunded in free bets equal to whatever you lost (up to $1,000).

BetMGM bonus code ACTIONCUP can get new bettors in all states but NY and PA $200 worth of free bets when they bet on the World Cup. It’s a lower-stakes offer that requires less investment up front.

BetMGM is one of my favorite sportsbooks for football especially, given its bevy of props and niche markets.

Confused about how all this works? We’ll break it down below.

Signing up at BetMGM 

Here’s how to sign up at BetMGM using our bonus code. It should take just a few minutes.

  1. Click here to start the sign-up flow
  2. Use BetMGM bonus code ACTION or ACTIONCUP at checkout, depending on your preference
  3. Enter all your information — name, address, last four digits of your SSN, etc. It will be needed to verify your identity, and sportsbooks need to do that so you can’t create duplicate accounts.
  4. Make your first bet, up to $1,000 if you use code ACTION
  5. Make a $10 bet on the World Cup if you use code ACTIONCUP

In a BetMGM state right now but don’t live there? We put together a guide to signing up for sportsbooks while traveling.

Criteria to Sign Up

Not sure if you’re eligible to sign up? Here are the boxes you need to check to claim a BetMGM bonus code.

  • Be 21 years or older
  • Located in a state where BetMGM is available — you can find a full list of sportsbooks available in each state here. You don’t need to live in the state, you just need to be physically present there when betting.
  • Have a valid credit card, bank account, or other deposit method.

How BetMGM Bonus Code ACTION Works

How does this $1,000 bet on the house work? We’ll dive into an example for Utah vs. USC in the Pac-12 Championship Game on Friday night.

Sportsbook sign-up lingo is confusing, so we put together a full explainer of what the different promos mean. If you’re totally new to sports betting, check out our 12 tips.

Your First Bet

Like I mentioned, if your first bet loses, you’ll be refunded an equal amount in free bets.

So let’s pretend I deposit $500 and bet it all on Utah moneyline against USC on Friday night. The Utes are about +130 as of Friday morning.

If Utah wins, you profit $650 and keep the original $500. It Utah loses, you get $500 back in free bets.

Outcome Profit Account
Utah wins $650 $1150 cash
Utah loses -$500 $500 free bets

Getting Free Bets Back

Alright, let’s pretend Utah loses. Shocking we’d lose a bet, I know. I’ll put $100 in free bets on Coastal Carolina +280 on Saturday against Troy in the Sun Belt Championship Game.

The best way to use sign-up bonuses and free bets is on longshots. There’s a window in the +300 to +500 range, but I’ll be a little short of that in this example.

  • If Coastal wins, I profit $280. I’ll have $400 in free bets left.
  • If Coastal loses, the free bets go away, and I’ll have $400 in free bets left.

That’s why it’s not truly risk-free — you can lose some or all of your deposit.
