BetMGM Bonus Code Unlocks $200 Sign-Up Offer for NFL Week 6

BetMGM Bonus Code Unlocks $200 Sign-Up Offer for NFL Week 6 article feature image
  • Signing up at BetMGM and trying to claim the best-available offer? We've got you covered.
  • It differs a bit by state, and there's only one NFL-specific offer, while the others are around the NHL (but you'll want to use it, even if you're not a hockey fan).
  • We explain more below.

BetMGM bonus code ACTIONYARD or ACTIONNHL each get users $200 in free bets that can be used on anything — NFL, CFB, MLB, NBA, NHL, etc.

Here’s how they work.

  • ACTIONYARD gets new users (Kansas, Illinois, Louisiana only) $200 in free bets if the football team they bet at least $10 on gets at least 1 passing yard. So you can bet any NFL game on Sunday, and get the free bets.
  • 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. The problem is, there are no NHL games on Sunday, so you’ll have to wait until Monday.
  • ACTION unlocks a $1,000 risk-free bet. This is the worst of the three offers, so I’d wait until Monday to get some NHL action (if you’re not in KS, IL, or LA).

It’s a huge NFL day with Chiefs vs. Bills headlining the slate, so take advantage now.

Here are the best codes by state:

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 doesn’t matter how you get the free bets, since you can use them on sports you actually want to bet. The code just helps unlock them.

  • 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 Bruins at +100 on Monday against the Panthers — as long as there’s a goal, you’ll get $200 in free bets.
  • ACTIONYARD: You just need one passing yard in a college football or NFL game to get the free bets. So bet $10 on Jets-Packers, get $200 if there’s at least one passing yard.
  • ACTION: Get a $1,000 risk-free bet for any sport. Again, it’s a worse offer, so I wouldn’t use this one. Risk-free bets work like this — if you bet $200 on the Chiefs +2.5 and it loses, you get $200 back in free bets. If it wins, you keep the winnings. What makes it worse is that you actually have to put up $200, whereas with ACTIONNHL, you only have to risk $10.

How Free Bets Work

BetMGM will give you four separate $50 free bets after you claim the $200 offer.

Free bets can be wagered on anything, but they must be wagered before they turn into real cash. Once they win, that money can be withdrawn if you desire.

We advise you use your free bets on plus-money wagers, because you’ll get more expected value over time. Check out that article for further explanation.

OK, so how should you use your free bets? Here are some examples, at $50 each, for Sunday and Monday.

Bet Line Profit
Dallas Goedert Touchdown (Win) +220 $110
Cowboys ML (Loss) +210 $0
Broncos ML (Win) +190 $95
Melvin Gordon TD (Loss) +160 $0
Total $205

After depositing just $10, you’ll profit $205 thanks to the free bets, which you can now cash out or continue betting.

That’s the reason the free bets are better than the risk-free bet. You only need to put in $10 and put $10 at risk to get $200 in free bets. With the risk-free bets, you need to actually wager $1,000 to get $1,000 back in free bets. There’s much more risk.

How Risk-Free Bets Work

We’ve talked a bit about how risk-free bets work, but we’ll explain further here.

Let’s say you deposit and bet $500 on the Jets moneyline against the Packers, at +250.

  • If the Jets win, you profit $1,250, and keep the original $500. That’s now $1,750 in your account.
  • If the Jets lose, you get $500 back in free bets.

Then say you put $500 in free bets on the Eagles -6 against the Cowboys.

  • If the Cowboys cover, you end up with nothing.
  • If the Eagles cover, you end up with about $455, on a $500 deposit. That’s a loss of $45.

Fortunately, you don’t need to bet all the free bets at once.
