BetMGM Ohio Bonus Code: Unlock $1,000 in OH, All Other States for Sunday NFL Games article feature image

BetMGM OH Bengals-Ravens Joe Burrow, 1/15/2023

The biggest day of NFL Super Wild Card Weekend is here. BetMGM Ohio bonus code TOPACTION can up the ante with a $1,000 first bet on the house from BetMGM Sportsbook. This offer is available in the newly-launched Ohio and all other states where BetMGM Sportsbook operates, except New York.

What’s that mean? If your first wager at BetMGM Sportsbook loses (and only your first wager, you don’t get to choose which one it is), you’ll get bet credits back equal to exaclty what you lost — as long as it’s below $1,000.

If you’re in Ohio and want a lower-risk offer, you can use BetMGM bonus code ACTIONYARD to get $200 in bet credits when you bet $10 on any NFL game. As long as there’s 1+ passing yard, you’ll get the credits.

BetMGM is a must-have sportsbook for NFL games thanks to its first TD insurance promo on Monday’s and strong pricing on first touchdown scorers.

BetMGM Bonus Code by State

There are two offers available for Ohio bettors — TOPACTION and ACTIONYARD (which will be expiring in about a week).

  1. TOPACTION: A $1,000 first bet on the house — if your first wager loses, you get back bet credits equal to what you lost.
  2. ACTIONYARD: For users in Ohio, Maryland, Kansas, Illinois and Louisiana only. Get $200 in bet credits if the NFL team you bet throws for 1+ yard. 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.

If you have enough of a bankroll, TOPACTION is actually the better offer because you can guarantee about $500 in profit. We explain how here.

How BetMGM Bonus Codes Works

Check out our guide to sportsbook sign-up offers if you’re totally new to sports betting and don’t know how any of these bonuses work.

Let’s get into how you should use BetMGM bonus code TOPACTION.

Making Your First Bet

As we detailed, if you lose your first bet at BetMGM, you’ll get refunded in bet credits, up to $1,000. Remember, they’ll return what you lost in bet credits, which you can then convert into cash. It’s not cash right away.

Let’s use an example from Sunday’s NFL slate — Josh Allen to score a (rushing) touchdown at +130.

I’ll put $200 on it, my entire hypothetical deposit. If Allen scores, I’ll profit $260 ($200 x 1.3) and keep my original $200 bet. That’s $460 of real, cold-hard cash in my account. If it loses, I get $200 back in bet credits.

Using Bet Credits

OK, time to use the bet credits, if Allen doesn’t score. They should be in your account at most a few hours after you lose your first bet, but it can take up to a full day, per BetMGM’s terms and conditions.

Now you might be wondering, what should I do with all these bet credits? Well, the bet strategy is the same as what we outlined before — longshots in the +300 to +500 range.

Let’s say I take $200 in bet credits (BetMGM Sportsbook will return four, $50 credits) and bet $50 on the Ravens moneyline at +350. Again, I keep the profits if it wins, but not the stake.

  • If the Ravens win, I profit $175 but don’t keep the $50 bet credit.
  • If the Ravens lose, the bet credit just goes away and I’ll have $150 in credits left.

ACTIONYARD Bonus Code Overview

If you’re a resident of Ohio, Maryland, Kansas, Illinois, or Louisiana, the promotional information above does not pertain to you. Instead, BetMGM is offering an NFL-specific bonus. Here’s how it works:

  • Wager $10 on any NFL game
  • If the team you bet gets 1+ passing yard, you get $200 in bet credits. That shouldn’t be a problem in any of today’s NFL games.

While the monteary value isn’t quite 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.
