BetMGM Bonus Code TOPACTION Unlocks $1,000 Offer for Thursday Slate article feature image

Thursday features some marquee NBA matchups and BetMGM bonus code TOPACTION activates a $1,000 first bet on the house. So if your first bet at BetMGM Sportsbook loses, you’ll be refunded in bet credits equal to whatever you lost.

This offer can be used on any sport and any game.

If you are inside the state of Ohio, this is a wonderful chance to dip your toes into the world of sports betting with BetMGM bonus code TOPACTION. The Buckeye State just launched legal wagering on Jan. 1.

BetMGM is also offering an exclusive Ohio (plus Maryland, Kansas, Illinois and Louisiana), NBA-specific promotion that’s called ACTIONNBA, which unlocks $200 in bet credits if you bet $10 on the game. This is one of the last days for this BetMGM offer.

We’ll explain how these offers work in detail below.

How BetMGM Bonus Codes Work

First, we’ve got a guide handy to explain what each sportsbook means by its marketing. Let’s get into how you should use BetMGM bonus code, TOPACTION.

Placing a 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), if you can afford it. This may sound scary, but this strategy is the best way to mathematically maximize this BetMGM offer. Remember, they’ll return what you lost in bet credits, which you can then convert into cash by betting it.

Let’s say you want to deposit $200 and bet it all on the Warriors +175 against the Celtics.

Here are the two outcomes:

  • If the Warriors win, you profit $350 ($200 x 1.75) and you keep your original $200 bet. That means you’ll have $550 in your BetMGM account.
  • If the Warriors lose, you get $200 back in bet credits.

Using the Bet Credits

OK, let’s pretend the Warriors lose. What happens now? You’ll get bet credits back, and you have to wager them to turn into cash.

So what is there to do with all of these bet credits? You want to use the same bet strategy we suggested for first bets — anything in the +300 to +500 range. Because you’re not keeping the bet amount, it’s mathematically optimal to bet at plus-money — the higher the line, the more expected value.

So let’s say you get $200 back in bet cred

ACTIONNBA Bonus Code Overview

If you’re in…

  • Ohio
  • Maryland
  • Illinois
  • Louisiana
  • Kansas

…you can get $200 in bet credits if you bet $10 on any NBA game using bonus code ACTIONNBA.

Here’s how it works:

  • Bet $10 on any NBA game
  • If the team you bet gets 1+ 3-pointer, you get $200 in bet credits.

While the money value may not be as high, it’s much lower risk since BetMGM will give you four, $50 bet credits for just a $10 deposit.

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

BetMGM Bonus Code by State

BetMGM and other sportsbooks are trying to acquire new customers in their new states, so they give better offers there.

  1. TOPACTION: A $1,000 first bet on the house.
  2. ACTIONNBA: For users in Ohio, Maryland, Kansas, Illinois and Louisiana only. Get $200 in bet credits if the NBA team you bet hits a single shot from 3-point range. It’s a much lower-risk offer than the $1,000 first bet on the house, so use it if you’re not planning on betting the full $1,000.

Believe it or not, if you have a bigger bankroll, TOPACTION is the better offer since you can get $500 in profit. We explain how here.
