ESPN BET Promo Code ACTNEWS: Grab $250 Bonus for Kentucky vs. Kansas, Any Game article feature image

We have a new betting site available in 17 states, as ESPN BET launched on Tuesday, November 14. The sportsbook launched just in time for this season's first big slate of college basketball. New users can score a $250 bonus with the ESPN BET promo code ACTNEWS.

ESPN BET requires any first bet to score the $250 in bonus bets. It can be as small as $1, but it's important to use the ESPN BET promo code ACTNEWS. Bettors won't have access to the $250 welcome offer if they don't actually insert a promo code.

Following your first wager, ESPN BET provides four increments of a $50 bonus bet. The remaining $50 bonus appears in your account within 24 to 48 hours. All in all, customers will receive a total of $250 in bonus bets if they use the ESPN BET promo code ACTNEWS and make a first bet.

The ESPN BET signup offer is available for any sporting event. Below, we'll provide an example of Tuesday's Champions Classic while examining a bonus bet.

ESPN BET Promo Code ACTNEWS: How Bonus Bets Work

A bonus bet is essentially like credits in your account. They are available to wager on any betting market, but you cannot withdraw them. Bonus bets at ESPN BET expire within seven days of receiving them. Once you win a bet, the winnings are eligible for withdrawal.

Perhaps the most critical aspect of a bonus bet is a stake disappears no matter the outcome of your bet. That differs from a standard bet, which allows users to keep the stake with a win. Expected value is crucial for using bonus bets, and our +EV betting guide examines the best way to use them.

Overall, you'll want to target props or parlays in the +300 to +500 range. A bigger longshot gives users more expected value, but going too high (+1000) will make it hard to earn your money back. Remember, the bonus bets appear as five increments of $50.

ESPN BET Promo Example: Michigan State-Duke

The Champions Classic features a pair of highly-anticipated matchups. The night begins with a matchup between No. 9 Duke and No. 18 Michigan State. It hasn't been the best start for either team, as they've already suffered their first loss.

It was especially rough for Michigan State, losing as a 16.5-point home favorite against James Madison. Duke also suffered a home loss, but it was against a much tougher opponent in No. 3 Arizona. ESPN BET has the Blue Devils as a 3.5-point favorite for tonight's matchup.

From a bonus bet perspective, the best way to attack this game is a same-game parlay. Michigan State is the underdog, but their ML odds aren't enough to reach the +300 to +500 threshold. However, we can get there by betting on the point total.

Let's say we form a same game parlay with the Michigan State ML + Under 142.5 Points (+309). Here is an example of the outcome of using a $50 bonus bet on the game.

  • Michigan State Wins AND Under 142.5 Points: ESPN BET provides around $155 in withdrawable cash. We don't keep our $50 bonus stake.
  • MSU Loses OR Over 142.5 Points: We have no winnings from the bet and still don't keep the $50 bonus.
