This offer from ESPN BET ends at 11:59 pm ET on Dec. 31, 2023

ESPN BET promo code ACTNEWS offers all new users $250 in bonus bets following a cash wager on anything. It's the most straightforward style of offer in sports betting right now.

Here are few key notes to know:

  • Your bonus bets will be split into $50 increments, and you have seven days to use them. You can't split them down any further than $50.
  • You'll get $200 bonus bets right away, and the other $50 in 24-48 hours.
  • If you had an account with a previous PENN sportsbook, just sign in to the ESPN BET after downloading it, and you'll automatically get $200 in bonus bets. You unfortunately can't get the $250 if you already had an account.

ESPN BET also has a deposit match available that's a bit complicated. You will get both offers if you do make a deposit. But if you had a PENN account and just used your existing balance to make your first bet, you won't get the deposit match activated until you actually add more money.

Using Your ESPN BET Promo Code this Weekend

There are two basic steps to claiming this offer — making your first bet, and making your bonus bet wagers.

Step 1: Making the first bet is easy enough. There's no odds requirement, so you can place a bet on anything. Say you deposit $10 and make a $10 wager on Navy +120 against Army. If Navy wins, you'll profit $12, keep your $10, and get $250 in bonus bets. If Navy loses, you'll have no cash left but you'll still get the bonus bets.

Step 2: Using your bonus bets. The mathematically optimal way to use your bonus bets is to bet longshots, ideally in the +300 to +500 range. This is because you don't keep the bonus bet amount, so your expected value is always going to be greater if the line is higher.

How to Sign Up for ESPN BET

  3. Enter ESPN BET promo code ACTNEWS at checkout.
  4. Make a cash wager — can be $1, $20, $100, etc.
  5. Once you make that bet, you'll get four, $50 bonus bets. The next one will come in 1-2 days. If you already had a PENN account, you'll just get the $200.
  6. Use the bonus bets in 7 days, or they'll expire.
