BetMGM welcomes new customers with a $1,000 Risk-Free Bet.
Whether you’re new to sports and placing your first bet online, a Dallas Cowboys fan seeking to leverage your NFL betting knowledge, a longtime bettor visiting BetMGM for the first time, or anyone in between, you will receive a welcome bonus in the form of a $1,000 Risk-Free Bet.
What is a Risk-Free Bet?
A highly popular online sports betting promotion, you can wager up to $1,000 on a single bet with no minimum odds.
If you place a bet and lose, you receive your money back in the form of free bets and a second chance at placing a winning bet.
Basically: The defense fell for the hard count and you have a free play. If you score a touchdown or gain a first down on the free shot downfield, you win. If you throw an interception, drop a pass, or otherwise fail to move the ball, there’s no harm; the down doesn’t count and you get another chance upon enforcement of the offsides penalty.
For example, you placed a $1,000 risk-free money line bet on the Arizona Cardinals (-145) against the Buffalo Bills in Week 10 of the 2021 NFL season. With 34 seconds remaining, Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs connected for a 21-yard touchdown that gave the Bills a four-point lead, 30-26.
While your payout ($1,689.66) was in jeopardy, your online bet wasn’t. If Kyler Murray didn’t lead the Cardinals to a 75-yard touchdown drive in 34 seconds, your $1,000 wager would be refunded. If he did lead a miracle touchdown drive, you profited $413.79 on your first bet.
Murray did lead a miracle touchdown drive, connecting with DeAndre Hopkins on a 42-yard Hail Mary with two seconds left and cashing your money line ticket.
