The BetMGM bonus code is PLAY1000 and is worth $1,000 on BetMGM on your first bet. You can claim this bonus as a new user in most states where BetMGM Sportsbook is offered.
Thursday is Opening Day for the 2023 MLB season, with all 30 teams in action. BetMGM Sportsbook has a full slate of odds for each of those games, plus MLB futures odds for bettors looking to lock in predictions for the season ahead. There is also a welcome bonus available for new users who sign up with the promo code on this page. For more information, keep reading.
BetMGM welcome bonus
BetMGM’s welcome bonus is a refund in the form of bonus bets if your first bet loses, up to a maximum of $1,000. To claim the bonus, enter the BetMGM bonus code PLAY1000 when you register for an account.
If your first bet is for $50 or more and it loses, you’ll get your refund as five bonus bets, each equal to 20% of your original wager (a $100 losing first bet would qualify you for five bonus bets of $20 each, for example). If your first bet wins, you receive no bonus, just your winnings as normal.
You’ll then have seven days to wager any bonus bets you receive before they expire. If you place a winning bet using a bonus bet, the payout will not include your wager amount, just the profit. To sign up for a BetMGM Sportsbook account, you must be located in a state where the sportsbook is legal and of legal age to bet in that state.
