Shohei Ohtani singled with one out in the seventh inning of the Los Angeles Angels’ eventual win over the Tampa Bay Rays on June 13, 2019, to complete the cycle. It was the 326th cycle in MLB history, 312 of which weren’t natural cycles – collecting a single, double, triple, and home run in order.

Two years later, there have been four more cycles, bringing the all-time total to 330 since Curry Foley’s first undisputed cycle in 1882, but baseball is still seeking its 15th all-time natural cycle, and the first since Gary Matthews’ Jr. did it in September 2006.

Hitting for the natural cycle is hard; it’s happened in only 0.006 percent of all MLB games. Completing BetMGM’s Hit the Cycle Challenge isn’t hard; it happens with four simple wagers.

Through the end of the 2021 regular season, BetMGM customers can earn four rewards – two tokens and two free bets – with the Hit the Cycle Challenge. Here are the four steps:

Base Hit
Receive a Parlay Boost token when you place a $10 money line wager.
Stand-Up Double
Receive a risk-free token when you place a parlay bet of at least $10.
Receive a $5 Free Bet when you place a parlay bet of at least $10.
Grand Slam
Receive a $10 Free Bet when you place an MLB futures bet

You may complete the Hit the Cycle Challenge each week. Each Monday, the cycle is reset, and you begin earning the bonuses again. If you don’t complete each step by the final game each Sunday, your cycle resets, but you may start over and earn each reward again.
