Sports betting promotions are a key piece of an elite online sports betting experience at BetMGM.
From Same Game Parlays and Parlay Boosts to First Bet Offers and sweepstakes, BetMGM has promos for first-time customers placing their first bet online, longtime VIP customers tracking NBA odds, and everyone in between.
What’s a Sports Betting Promotion?
Promotions, aka “offers,” are among the biggest reasons why sports fans bet online. Starting with a First Bet Offer for first-time customers, sports bet promos are available throughout your betting experience.
Some promotions are available to all customers for all sports while others are available to specific customers for specific sports, leagues, or events. For example, BetMGM’s popular Same Game Parlay promotion is available to all customers but only for specific games.
On Feb. 3, 2021, the Philadelphia 76ers visited the Charlotte Hornets in the final game of a three-game road trip that began with wins over the Minnesota Timberwolves and Indiana Pacers. For the Sixers-Hornets game, the following Same Game Parlay was available to all customers:
- 76ers: win
- Ben Simmons: 12+ points
- Gordon Hayward: over 21.5 points
- Joel Embiid: over 25.5 points
- Cody Zeller: over 6.5 rebounds
- Gordon Hayward: over 2.5 rebounds
The six-leg parlay, with odds of +650, would pay $187.50 on a $25 bet.
With 78 seconds remaining, the Sixers led 112-101 after two Tobias Harris free throws. Barring a miracle comeback, the first leg would hit. And four of the other five legs already hit – Simmons, Embiid, Zeller, and Hayward (rebounds) – but Hayward was stuck on 20 points.
Fifteen seconds later, Hayward scored his 21st and 22nd points with a lay-in and all but guaranteed winning tickets for the Same Game Parlay bettors.
If Hayward didn’t go up-and-under on Harris for his final points, the parlay wouldn’t have hit. However, if BetMGM’s Same Game Parlay Insurance was available, your $25 stake would’ve been refunded. If you miss only one leg of a Same Game Parlay with at least four legs, your bet is refunded (up to $25 in bonus bets).
