Ready or not, here comes the BetMGM Casino in Michigan!
BetMGM is giving away a $200 welcome bonus ahead of its arrival in the state, which is Friday, Jan. 22. That equals to $100 in casino cash and $100 in free sports bets.
Get $200 free from BetMGM in Michigan
Here’s how it works: Click here to go to the BetMGM Sportsbook site.
If you are registering for an account but live outside Michigan, be sure to click the “Michigan” button. You do not have to live in Michigan to sign up at BetMGM, but you do have to be inside the state to place a bet.
Sign up for an account (just one account for both sports and online casino) and the $200 will be gifted to you once BetMGM Michigan is live in the state.
You can sign up via casino or sports, but either way, BetMGM will gift you $200 free. No deposit required. There also will be separate offers for risk-free first bets.
The $100 in sports bets need to be used within seven days of launch and will be credited as a pair of $50 free bets.
The $100 in FREEPLAY at BetMGM Casino needs to be played through within seven days at any casino game. You have seven days to activate the FREEPLAY and seven days after you activate to play through. You must wager $1,500 within the 14 days to withdraw any money.
The MGM brand is a familiar one in the market already, and the company has high hopes for its standing with Michigan sports fans and casino players.
BetMGM Michigan hoping to make a big splash
BetMGM is a joint venture between MGM Resorts International and GVC.
The brand has market access to Michigan’s online gambling market through MGM Grand Detroit, the state’s busiest casino.
MGM Grand Detroit’s BetMGM Sports Lounge also leads Detroit’s casinos in sports betting market share. Through November, the sportsbook accepted 44.8% of the total sports betting handle in Detroit since sportsbooks opened in March.
MGM Grand Detroit also has developed partnerships with the Detroit Lions and Red Wings, teams with loyal followings unmatched in the market.
BetMGM is hoping for the same kind of loyalty from its customers and this giveaway is a great start.
When will BetMGM launch online in Michigan?
After a long year, we’ll finally have online gambling in the Great Lakes State early in 2021. The launch is set for noon on Friday, Jan. 22.
The Michigan Legislature gave the all-clear in December for the Michigan Gaming Control Board to add internet gaming and internet sports betting rules to the administrative code.
BetMGM has been approved to open its virtual doors and BetMGM poker in Michigan should be next to follow.
Which leads us to one final question: Are you ready?
