New BetMGM online sportsbook customers in Illinois can receive up to $1,000 back in Bonus Bets with a First Bet Offer.
How To Get BetMGM’s Welcome Offer
When new customers in Illinois create a BetMGM account, they can receive BetMGM’s Bonus Bets with these easy steps:
- Visit BetMGM.com or download the BetMGM Sportsbook app on iOS or Android.
- Sign up for a BetMGM Sports account.
- Deposit a minimum of $10 in your new account.
- Find odds that fit your entertainment desire and add a bet or parlay to your Bet Slip.
- Place your first wager and receive the stake back (up to $1,000 in Bonus Bets) if it loses.
Here’s an example with NFL odds:
If your first wager is $100 on the Chicago Bears’ moneyline (+135) against the Green Bay Packers, you can win $235 (including stake) if the Bears win the game.
If the Bears lose, you’ll receive your entire $100 stake back as Bonus Bets.
If your first wager has a stake greater than $1,000 (e.g., $1,100 or $1,456), you’ll receive $1,000 back as Bonus Bets if the wager loses.
If your losing stake is greater than $50, you’ll receive five Bonus Bets back in equal denominations of 20% of the total amount of the first bet up to $1,000. If your Qualifying Bet loses and it is less than $50, you will receive a single Bonus Bet back in a single denomination equaling the total amount of the Qualifying Bet.
In the example above, you’d receive five Bonus Bets of $20 apiece equaling $100 in total Bonus Bets.
A Bonus Bet is a credit that allows players to place a bet without using cash funds. Such credits cannot be withdrawn or cashed out by participants. A Bonus Bet credit can be used only once, is not included in any winnings, and is subject to loss if the bet placed with such credit does not win. A Bonus Bet must be used within seven days of being credited to your account.
