Right now, the welcome bonus available at BetMGM is a risk-free first bet for up to a maximum of $1,000 when you sign up using the promo code PLAY1000. For more details on how to claim and use the risk-free bet, as well as a quick preview of the Bills-Patriots game, keep on reading.
BetMGM promo code for Thursday Night Football
To claim the BetMGM welcome bonus, use the BetMGM bonus code PLAY1000 during the account creation process. Provided you do that, your first wager at BetMGM will qualify for the risk-free bet. That means if it loses, you’ll receive a refund equal to your stake in BetMGM free bets.
The maximum amount you can claim is $1,000, and the number of free bets you receive depends on the amount you bet. If your first wager at BetMGM is for less than $50 and it loses, you’ll receive one free bet worth 100% of your stake. If your first wager is for $50 or more, you’ll receive five free bets, each worth 20% of your original wager. For example, a first wager of $100 would get you a refund of five free bets of $20 each if it lost.
You won’t be able to withdraw the free bets, and if you don’t wager them within seven days of receiving them, they’ll expire. Also, successful wagers you place using free bets only return profit — you don’t get your original wager back. To claim the BetMGM welcome bonus, you must be located in a state where BetMGM is legal and be of legal betting age in that state.
