BetMGM Ohio Bonus Codes: Unlock $1,000 in OH, $1,050 in Other States for Saturday & Sunday article feature image

BetMGM OH CBB, 01/28/23

BetMGM Ohio bonus code TOPACTION unlocks a $1,000 first bet on the house from BetMGM Sportsbook for new users in the Buckeye State.

What's that mean? If your first wager on the platform loses, you'll be refunded in bonus bets equal to whatever you lost. You can use the first bet on the house for any game in any sport.

There are different offers depending on where you live:

  1. TOPACTION (Ohio): $1,000 first bet on the house
  2. ACTIONBONUS50 (most BetMGM states): $1,000 first bet on the house, plus $50 in bonus bets no matter what
  3. ACTIONYARD or ACTIONNBA: These two are essentially the same offer, but for different sports. With ACTIONYARD, just bet $10 on any NFL game and you'll get $200 in bonus bets if your team throws for a single passing yard. With ACTIONNBA, bet $10 and get $200 in bonus bets if your team hits a single 3-pointer.

We'll explain more about these offers below. If you're unfamiliar with these bonuses or new to sports betting, check out our complete guide to each offer type.

BetMGM Bonus Code 1: ACTIONBONUS50

Alright, let's dive into the offer available in the most states. It's a two-part bonus:

  • $50 in bonus bets no matter what (as long as you place a bet of at least $10)
  • Your first bet is a first bet on the house, up to $1,000

Let's say you bet $200 on the Kentucky moneyline at +110 against Kansas on Saturday in the Big 12/SEC Challenge.

If Kentucky wins, you profit $220, and keep the original $200. So you'll have $420 in your account that's all cash. It can be withdrawn or bet. If Kentucky loses, you'll get $200 back in bonus bets.

So how do bonus bets work? It's like BetMGM spots you the bet, and you keep the profits if it wins. Say you take $50 in bonus bets and put it on the 49ers +120 against the Eagles on Sunday. If it wins, you'll profit $60 ($50 x 1.2) but you don't keep the bonus bet itself. If the Eagles win, the bonus bet just goes away.

BetMGM Bonus Code 2: TOPACTION

Bonus code TOPACTION (primarily for Ohio users) is the same as ACTIONBONUS50, minus the $50 in bonus bets no matter what.

So it's a $1,000 first bet on the house. If you place $200 on Kentucky and they lose, you get $200 back in bonus bets. If they win, you keep the winnings and profit.


Alright, this offer is a bit different, but it's pretty straightforward.

  • Just bet $10 on any NBA game if you use ACTIONNBA or $10 on any NFL game if you use ACTIONYARD
  • If your team hits a 3-pointer or gets a single passing yard, you'll get $200 in bonus bets
  • You'll then be able to use the bonus bets on anything

Like we described above, bonus bets work like this — you keep any profits, but not the credit itself. So if I bet $50 on Devonta Smith to score a touchdown for the Eagles at +200, I'll get $100 if he scores but not keep the $50 bonus bet. If he doesn't score, the bonus bet goes away.

How to Claim the BetMGM Sign-Up Bonus

The registration process for BetMGM is quick and simple. There are, however, a few requirements that new users must meet in order to sign up successfully. Check to make sure you're eligible based on the following guidelines:

  1. You are 21+
  2. Currently located in Ohio (or a legal betting state where BetMGM is available). You do not have to be a permanent resident of the state, but have to physically be there to activate your account and make a wager.
  3. Access to a valid deposit method such as credit/debit cards, bank account, or any other medium accepted by BetMGM

Once you've checked all the boxes listed above, sign up for BetMGM using this process:

  1. Click hereto start your registration
  2. Use bonus code TOPACTION or ACTIONYARD
  3. Make sure you enter all your accurate info — real name, real address (even if you're in a different state from where you live), etc. If you don't put your real info, BetMGM can't verify your identity, and you won't be able to deposit or bet
  4. Deposit at least $10
  5. Make your first bet up to $1,000

Using Your BetMGM Bet Credits

A BetMGM bet credit is basically the sportsbook spotting you money to make future wagers. In the example above, we just received $1,000 bet credits. At this point, it is important to note that you only have seven days to use your bet credits. Otherwise, BetMGM will remove them from your account.
