BetMGM Bonus Code Activates $200 in Free Bets for Friday Slate

BetMGM Bonus Code Activates $200 in Free Bets for Friday Slate article feature image

BetMGM bonus code ACTIONYARD or ACTIONNHL each get users $200 in free bets that can be claimed Friday and used this weekend — for college football, MLB playoffs, NFL and more.

Here’s how they work.

  • ACTIONYARD gets new users (Kansas, Illinois, Louisiana only) $200 in free bets if the football team they bet gets at least 1 passing yard. So you can bet SMU-Navy or FIU-UTSA on Friday night, if you can stomach it.
  • ACTIONNHL gets new users $200 in free bets if there’s one goal scored in an NHL game they bet. This is available in most other BetMGM states.

These are better offers than the $1,000 risk-free bet that BetMGM normally gives out, so take advantage even if you’re not a college football or NHL fan.

Here are the codes by state:

State Bonus Code
Nevada None
New York None
Pennsylvania None
West Virginia ACTIONNHL

How to Get the Free Bets

The ACTIONNHL and ACTIONYARD offers are both better than the $1,000 risk-free bet, so claim them even if you’re not a hockey fan. It’s worth it, then you can use the free bets on anything you’d like this weekend.

  • ACTIONNHL: Bet $10 on any NHL game, and get $200 in free bets if there’s a goal scored. Easy peasy. Once that game settles, you’ll get the $200 in free bets, plus the winnings if you do win your bet. Let’s say you bet $10 on the Canadiens +145 against the Red Wings on Friday night.
  • ACTIONYARD: You just need one passing yard in a college football or NFL game to get the free bets. So bet $10 on Navy vs. SMU on Friday, get $200 if there’s at least one passing yard.

How Free Bets Work

Here’s how the free bets work. You’ll be armed with four, $50 free bets, since BetMGM splits them up into smaller increments.

Free bets are kind of like cash, but you don’t keep the stake once you bet them. You must also wager them to turn them into real money that can be withdrawn.

Here are four ways you can use your free bets this weekend, and what will happen depending on who wins. We always recommend you use free bets on plus-money wagers, because you’ll get more expected value over time.

Bet Line Profit
Penn State ML (Win) +220 $110
Tennessee ML (Loss) +220 $0
Illinois ML (Win) +200 $100
Florida State ML (Loss) +145 $0
Total $210

After depositing just $10, you’ll profit $210 thanks to the free bets, which you can now cash out.
