BetMGM OH NFL, 01/22/2023

BetMGM Ohio bonus code TOPACTION offers new bettors in Ohio a $1,000 first bet on the house from BetMGM Sportsbook.

In all other states (except New York where there are no new-user offers), use BetMGM bonus code ACTIONBONUS50 for a $1,000 first bet on the house, plus $50 in bet credits no matter what.

If you're in Ohio and want a lower-risk offer with lower value at BetMGM, you could also use BetMGM bonus code ACTIONYARD to get $200 in bet credits. Just bet $10 on either NFL game on Sunday, and get $200 in bet credits if your team throws for 1+ yard.

We'll explain more about how these offers and bet credits work below.

Signing Up at BetMGM

BetMGM has a few things you

  1. 21+ years old
  2. New users must be located in a state where BetMGM is active. It should be noted that you don't have to live in Ohio to wager, you just have to be in the state at the time of activation and making a bet. Check out our travel betting guide for more details.
  3. Access to valid deposit method (credit/debit card, bank account, or other accepted medium)

BetMGM Ohio Bonus Codes

Before we get into how we can use this promotion, let's discuss the simplicities of getting situated at BetMGM: First, register using one of the three BetMGM bonus codes available:

  • TOPACTION in Ohio for a $1,000 first bet on the house
  • ACTIONBONUS50 in most other states for $1,000 first bet on the house plus $50 in bet credits
  • ACTIONYARD in Ohio, Maryland, Louisiana, Illinois and Kansas for $200 in bet credits.

With the first bet on the house, you'll make your first bet on the platform, and if it loses, you'll be refunded in bet credits equal to whatever you lost.

Let's say you deposit $200 and put it all on the Bengals +200 against the Bills.

  • If the Bengals win, you'll profit $400 ($200 x 2.0) and keep the original $200 bet. You'll have $600 in your account.
  • If the Bengals lose, you'll get $200 back in bet credits.

Here's a snippet of our Bills-Bengals preview:

The NFL is a game of matchups, and simply put, the Bengals have the weapons to exploit the lack of consistency in the Bills secondary.

The more reliable offense is led by the quarterback who took his team to a Super Bowl one season ago. Burrow has only eight turnover worthy plays since the end of September. The Bengals’ close call with a divisional rival, combined with the overstated impact of the injuries up front have inflated this line tremendously.

I am picking Cincinnati to upset Buffalo and advance to an AFC Championship rematch with the Chiefs. I’m thrilled to grab the points with the Bengals.

Check out our live NFL odds page to make sure you’re getting the best number on Cincinnati. The spread had moved to most Bengals +6 at most sportsbooks.

Understanding BetMGM Bet Credits

Bet credits are like BetMGM is spotting you the bet, and you keep the profits, but not the original bet amount. Keep in mind, your bet credits must be used within seven days of being credited to your account. So you'll want to use them when you can.

So let's say you lose your Bengals bet and want to bet on the Cowboys +150 in the nightcap of Sunday's NFL action. You'll get $200 worth of bet credits back, split into four, $50 bets.

Say you put $50 on the Cowboys. If they win, you'll profit $75, but you don't keep the $50 bet credit. If the Cowboys lose, that bet credit just goes away.

We always recommend you make plus-money wagers with your bet credits, so taking spreads actually isn’t the best idea. You’re getting much more expected value, since you don’t keep the initial stake. While you may not hit your bet credits as often at +500 since those outcomes are less likely, it’s mathematically optimal and you’ll make money in the long run.
