BetMGM will give new customers $200 in bonus credit if the team they bet on to win an NFL game scores a touchdown. 

The sportsbook offered the promotion on the Monday Night Football game between the New England Patriots and the Buffalo Bills earlier this weekend. It is running again on tonight’s eagerly-anticipated clash between the Minnesota Vikings and the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

That suggests this promotion will run on primetime games in the future. 

How it Works 

To claim this offer, you can sign up for an account, make a $10 deposit, and place a bet on a team to win an NFL game. This is a moneyline wager, so you do not need to concern yourself with which team will cover the spread. Simply pick the winner. 

You will then receive $200 in Bonus Bet credits if the team you bet on scores a TD during the game. That is never guaranteed, but both the Pats and the Bills scored a touchdown in that 14-10 win for New England on Monday. 

If your team scores a TD, you will receive $200 in Bonus Bet credit, which has a 1x playthrough requirement. Any winnings you earn from your bonus bets will be paid in cash and can be withdrawn immediately. 

If your moneyline bet wins, you will be paid out, just like any normal wager. For tonight’s game, BetMGM has a market-leading -175 on the Vikings and +145 on the Steelers. The Vikings managed three TDs in their surprise defeat to the Lions last weekend, while the Steelers scored two TDs in the fourth quarter of their comeback win against the Ravens. 

An Enticing Welcome Bonus 

This offer is available to anyone in Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming – the states in which BetMGM operates. It will soon launch in Louisiana, and it has retail operations in Mississippi and Washington DC. 

The standard BetMGM welcome bonus is a First-Bonus Bet worth up to $1,000. You might find this more attractive, as you only need to deposit $10 of your own money to unlock the bonus credit. If you wanted $200 in bonus credit via the normal offer, it would be dependent on you depositing $200 and placing a losing wager with it 

A Wealth of Football Bonuses 

BetMGM has launched a comprehensive suite of football promotions to stand out from the crowd during the NFL season. 

It offers one-game parlay insurance on NFL games. You can compile the same game parlay with four or more legs, and if one leg lets you down, you will get a refund of up to $25, paid in Bonus Bet credit. It also has a profit boost of up to 40% on winning parlays with four to seven legs. 

Another promotion, “Go for a Halftime Haul”, ensures you get paid out if the NFL team you bet on is 10 points ahead at the half, even if it loses the game. There is a free-to-enter sportsbook contest called Tackle the Weekend, where you can win up to $50,000 in cash prizes each week by guessing the top-scoring NFL teams. 

BetMGM also provides regular NFL odds boosts. You can name your favorite NFL team, and it will send you tailored odds boosts and bonuses on games featuring that team. You get a free $10 bet each week too if you place $50 worth of wagers during the prior seven days, and all the while you will accumulate loyalty points, which can be exchanged for more free bet credit.
