BetMGM Michigan Offering Additional Free $50 Bet To New Users

New customers at BetMGM Michigan Sportsbook are in for a treat if they act fast.

BetMGM Michigan already offers a strong risk-free bet of up to $1,000 for first-time users. As a bonus, it is offering an additional $50 free bet until Dec. 31.

The regularly-offered risk-free bet is great insurance on your first wager. If your bet loses, you get refunded the same amount up to $1,000 in site credit. The extra $50 bet, however, is yours no matter how much you deposit. 

As with any new sports betting offer, there are specific details for the sign-up process along with terms and conditions. Let’s take a look at all of that.

How To Claim This BetMGM Michigan Offer

Here is the five-step process to claim the offer:

  • Sign up and deposit into your newly created account.
  • Download the BetMGM Sports app on iOS or Android, or visit
  • After completing your registration and verification, you will automatically receive a free $50 bet.
  • Place your first wager risk-free and receive up to $1,000 back in free bets if it loses.
  • If the bet does lose, your free bets will be available once the wager is settled.

BetMGM Michigan Terms And Conditions

Perhaps the most important detail to note is that if you use the $50 free bet as your first wager on BetMGM Michigan Online, you will no longer be eligible for the risk-free first bet offer. To fully claim the risk-free first bet offer, use your deposit to place your first wager and the $50 free bet on any sports wager afterward, within seven days of the $50 free bet being credited to your account.

If your first risk-free bet loses, the amount you bet will determine how much and how you will receive your free bets. If your free bet is greater than $50, then you will receive free bets in denominations of 20% of the total number of free bet earnings you’re eligible for. If your qualifying bet loses and is less than $50, you’ll receive free bets back in a single denomination equaling the total number of free bet earnings you’re eligible for.

For example, if you deposit $1,000 and place a $1,000 wager that loses, you will receive $1,000 in free bets. The free bets will be broken down to five free bets worth $200 apiece.

If you deposit $49 and place a $49 wager that loses, you will receive $40 in free bets. The free bet will be a single bet worth $49.
