BetMGM Rolls Out Sign-Up Deals, NCAAB Promos, And More Post-Launch

Posted on March 6, 2020 - Last Updated on May 25, 2020

The Hoosier State has yet another online sportsbook brand now available. BetMGM launched on Tuesday, Feb. 25, in Indiana, with a BetMGM sign-up bonus to entice customers to give it a whirl.

New customers to the brand can take advantage of this offer for Indiana residents and visitors. That can make an already great experience even better.

Details of the BetMGM sign-up bonus in Indiana

Because BetMGM Indiana is the newest kid on the block in the Hoosier State, it has some work to do gain a significant share of the market. The promotion can be worth up to $500. Just use this link to sign up and enter the bonus code PLAYBONUS.

This comes in the form of a refund of your wager on your first bet if you don’t win. The cap on that refund is $500, and there are some conditions.

  • Offer available to new accounts only
  • Must place a qualifying bet within seven days of opening your account
  • Minimum wager of $25
  • The first wager must be a losing wager

For those who have used BetMGM in other states, you won’t have to register again to use the app or website in Indiana. Simply sign in with your existing credentials.

Although this promotion is only available for new customers, BetMGM hasn’t left you out if you’re a return customer. Other promotions are going on this month that are open to all bettors.

March’s best open promotions at BetMGM

The best way to check on which promotions are available and read the terms is to check on the Promotions tab on BetMGM’s app/website. Bettors should do that prior to making their deposits or placing wagers.

Follow The Puck is essentially a free credit for placing a wager on an NHL game. Make a bet on any NHL contest before the puck drops Tuesday through Thursday and BetMGM will give you a free live bet worth up to $100.

The Money Monday Club lets you start every work week on a positive note. To take advantage of this deal, simply opt-in then place at least $50 in qualifying wagers over the course of a week. The Monday following every week that you do so, BetMGM will give you a $10 free bet.

Especially for Indiana until March 15, BetMGM also offers a $10 free bet every day that you place a bet of at least $10 on any men’s college basketball team in the Hoosier State. Whether you choose the Boilermakers, Bulldogs, Fighting Irish or Hoosiers, time is of the essence to maximize this NCAA betting deal.

Also, for college basketball, BetMGM is offering a guaranteed bet for your first pre-game wager. If your bet loses, the sportsbook will refund your wager with a free bet of up to $20 in value. This promotion also expires on March 15.

This new player in the market also has a special for the NCAA DI men’s basketball tournament. That’s March Matchups, a promotion that could be worth up to $35 in free bets.

After opting into this promotion, place a futures wager on any team to win the tournament of at least $20 by March 19. For each tournament game that team wins, BetMGM will give you a $5 free bet.

BetMGM also has a rewards program for frequent users. Bettors can use credits to place free wagers that way as well.

What to use your free bet on at BetMGM this week

The Indiana Pacers have a road game against the Chicago Bulls tonight. BetMGM has a lot of different kinds of action available on Pacers games, including a wide array of prop bets.

For those whose betting tests are more varied, tennis’ Davis Cup begins tomorrow and continues through the weekend. Tennis is among the sports which lend the best to live betting.

The best plan for maximizing your wagers is to do research on the games you’re considering and bet with a plan, however. With this sign-up bonus, new customers have a lot of room for error and can take some risks. That’s the fun of wagering upon sports.
