BetMGM Louisiana sports betting

BetMGM is one of a half dozen sportsbooks that is going live in Louisiana on Friday, just in time for betting on the NFL’s championship weekend.

You can get a risk-free bet up to a $1,000 for signing up at BetMGM Sportsbook Louisiana. Read on for how to claim it.

BetMGM Sportsbook Louisiana is live

BetMGM is one of the biggest and most successful sportsbooks in the US right now. The launch in Louisiana comes on the heels of BetMGM going live in states around the country in recent years.

If you want to get started at BetMGM in Louisiana, you can sign up with promo code PLAYBONUS to get your risk-free bet of up to $1,000.  Just deposit, place a wager, and if it loses, you get a free bet of that amount added to your account.

BetMGM Sportsbook joins five other sportsbooks that went live on Friday as well. Head here for more information on all Lousiana online sportsbooks. Note that there are a few parishes in Louisiana from which you cannot place bets, but you can wager in most of the state.

How to register for BetMGM in Louisiana

Here’s how to get an account at BetMGM Louisiana:

  • Click this link.
  • Pick your state from the menu if you are prompted. Obviously, choose Louisiana here.
  • Register your account. BetMGM will need to verify who you are and will ask for information like your name, address, and the last four digits of your Social Security number. All of this is required to verify your identity under state gambling laws.
  • Get the app via the site. You will see links for how to download the Caesars Sportsbook app on Apple and Android devices.

Details on the BetMGM promo code for LA

The BetMGM promo for Louisiana is pretty straightforward, but here’s what you should know:

  • You obviously need to fund your account in order to place a bet and qualify for the promotion. You should deposit at least as much as you plan on betting to claim your free bets. Use promo code PLAYBONUS.
  • The minimum deposit is $10 to qualify.
  • The very first bet you place is the one that qualifies for the promotion. If you bet $1,000 and lose, you will get $1,000 in free bets. If you win, you just win your bet and you don’t receive any free wagers.
  • The free bets are paid in several different wagers if $50 or more. For instance, a $1,000 bet would result in five $200 free bets in your account. Any amount under $50 would return a single free bet.
