Bonus Codes for BetMGM by State

It’s worth noting that BetMGM has a variety of new user promotions depending on your location. While most bettors are eligible to receive the $1,000 risk-free bet, others will get a slightly different offer.

Here’s a breakdown of all of the available BetMGM bonus code options along with details for each state where the sportsbook is currently active.

  1. ACTION: A $1,000 first bet on the house.
  2. ACTIONYARD: For users in Maryland, Kansas, Illinois and Louisiana only. Get $200 in bet credits if the NFL team you bet throws for 1+ yard. It’s a lower-risk offer than the $1,000 first bet on the house.

How Does the $1,000 First Bet on the House Promotion Work?

If you are completely new to sports betting, it is definitely worth your time to familiarize yourself with common betting terminology as it relates to sportsbook offers. Also, don’t forget to review Action Network’s tips for first-time bettors to position yourself for success.

Alright, now it’s time to talk about the fun stuff—how to use the BetMGM new user bonus to its fullest potential.

Choosing a First Bet

Once you’ve made your initial deposit, shop for a bet that you want to place your entire bankroll on (up to $1,000). This may sound scary, but this strategy is the best way to maximize this BetMGM offer. Remember, they’ll return your stake if your first wager loses.

Let’s use today’s Buccaneers-Cardinals game as an example to see this promo in action.

First thing’s first – find a prop bet or other long shot (maybe a parlay?) wager that offers significant plus-money. These are the types of wagers that offer the most value with bet credits and promotional offers.

For this example we’ll make a One Game Parlay on BetMGM. If we pick Tampa Bay to cover -7.5 & the Game Total to be Under 39.5, that gives us +300 odds.

If we bet $1,000 and it hits, we’d earn $3,000 in profit, as well as getting our $1,000 stake back too.

Just for now, let’s say your bet doesn’t hit, and now you’ve got free bet credits coming your way. Now what happens? Let’s get into it.

Bet Credits on BetMGM

Hypothetically, our bet lost. So as part of the new user promotion, BetMGM is now going to credit your account with 10 separate $100 bet credits. Think of these as $100 spots courtesy of BetMGM. They’ll cover your wager, but if your bet wins, you only get to keep the profits. You won’t keep the stake from the bet credits.

Now you might be wondering, what should I do with all these free bet credits? Well, the free bet strategy is similar to we previously outlined. Continue to seek out plus-money wagers with high-value potential. These bets are far from sure things, but if they win, it will be a significant bankroll booster.

Here’s another example using one of your newly acquired $100 bet credits.

For Monday Night Football, we can wager another One Game Parlay on BetMGM. This time we’ll be using $100 of bet credits.

For our parlay we’ll bet the Chargers moneyline & the Game Total to be Over 45.5, making it +165 odds. If the bet hits, we’ll take back $165 bucks thanks to the free bet. If it loses, we don’t get anything in return, since we just used one of the bet credits.

ACTIONYARD Bonus Code Overview

If you’re a resident of Maryland, Kansas, Illinois, or Louisiana, the promotional information above does not pertain to you. Instead, BetMGM is offering a near no-risk, NFL-specific bonus. Here’s how it works:

  • Simply bet $10 on any NFL game
  • If the team you’ve wagered on throws for 1+ yard in the game (yes, you read that right), then you get $200 in bet credits

While the money value may not be as high with ACTIONYARD, new users are practically guaranteed free money from BetMGM in the form of four $50 free bet credits.

Nothing changes in terms of strategy with these free bet credits. Go for plus-money wagers that you think could have a reasonable chance of winning to maximize your profits.

Another Christmas NFL Bet to Make

If you are looking to bet on more NFL games today besides Tampa Bay-Arizona, check out what our Brandon Anderson is picking in the Green Bay-Miami matchup.

What Green Bay can do is defend the pass. The Packers rank sixth defensively against the pass over the past six weeks, and Miami’s once-lethal passing attack has fallen to pieces over the last couple games. San Francisco laid the blueprint, jamming those speed receivers at the line and taking away the middle of the field.

Tua Tagovailoa looks like he’s seeing ghosts; he is not finding his receivers and his sense of timing is completely off. The Dolphins dropped their third straight game on Saturday so belief in this team could be fading.

Even when the Dolphins win, they’re not always winning big. Four of their eight wins this season don’t cover this line anyway.

The truth is this has almost always been too many points to give Aaron Rodgers. As an underdog of over three points, Rodgers is 14-9 ATS (61%), and he’s covered eight of nine such games since 2019, winning seven of them outright. Matt LaFleur is also 12-4 ATS (75%) as an underdog, including 9-1 ATS as over a field goal dog.

I’m grabbing the points, and I also want a piece of the +176 moneyline.
