In time to capture some of the NFL playoffs, and well ahead of the Super Bowl, BetMGM Sportsbook NY has launched in the Empire State with an exclusive sign-up bonus for new users of a risk-free bet up to $1,000.
Although BetMGM becomes the fifth betting app in New York, any time in January is ideal considering the most popular sports betting event in the country, the Super Bowl, sits just a few weeks away.
And now, new BetMGM users can begin signing up with the app and get a jumpstart on the NY sports betting action.
BetMGM NY launch offer details: Up to $1,000 risk-free bet
Just in time for the final game of the NFL playoffs wild card weekend, which culminates with the Arizona Cardinals at the Los Angeles Rams tonight, BetMGM went live to give the Empire State five online sportsbooks.
Now, New Yorkers can start downloading the app and creating their BetMGM accounts to get in on the action.
On top of that, new users with BetMGM can claim an extraordinary sign-up offer.
After opening the app, users can register their accounts by starting the sign-up process with a click of the banner above (or by using the promo code PLAYBONUS). Once complete, bettors become eligible for the $1,000 risk-free bet.
Wager any amount you like. If you win, you’ll pocket those winnings as if it was any other bet. A loss, and BetMGM will refund the entire amount of the bet up to $1,000. This will stand as site credits, not actual cash to withdraw. But you can use that free bet for a chance at real cash.
Bettors will have seven days after signing up to take advantage of the risk-free bet offer.
