New BetMGM Kentucky users can sign-up early with BetMGM prior to the sports betting launch across the Bluegrass State on Sept. 28 using BetMGMbonus code NYPNEWS. This is one of the most straightforward offers across top sportsbooks because you only need to create the account before Sept. 28 to earn $100 in bonus bets.
Other BetMGM locations, besides D.C., Kansas and New York, can get a first bet on the house up to $1,500 with BetMGM bonus code NYPNEWS — that means if your first wager loses, you’ll be refunded in bonus bets equal to whatever you lose.
Whichever offer applies to you, BetMGM only allows you to activate one introductory deal as a new customer. Check out below how to qualify for the BetMGM Kentucky pre-registration or the exclusive deposit match.
Can I bet on Kentucky sports?
Once mobile sports betting is live across the state, customers will be able to access any market provided by BetMGM. This will include all the various college teams in the state and markets such as football and basketball. Here’s just a few of the top teams that will be available.
- University of Kentucky
- Western Kentucky
- Eastern Kentucky
Steps to sign-up early for BetMGM Kentucky
New bettors don’t fret. The BetMGM Kentucky deal only requires a few steps to win bonus bets on Sept. 28.
- First, visit BetMGM Kentucky and verify that Kentucky is selected.
- Register a new account using bonus code NYPNEWS.
- On Sept. 28, $100 in bonus bets deposit instantly to your new account.
BetMGM Kentucky pre-registration, explained
Kentucky retail sports betting went live across the state on Sept. 7. Meanwhile, mobile sports betting is set to launch on Sept. 28, meaning new users will be able to bet on a mobile app anywhere within state limits.
Customers geo-located within Kentucky can sign-up with BetMGM using bonus code NYPNEWS before Sept. 28 to have $100 in bonus bets to use on or after that date. Simply creating the account earns the bonus bets to use as funds for a wager within the BetMGM platform.
Once you earn the bonus bets, they must be used within seven days and cannot be withdrawn like cash. However, bonus bets have the opportunity to win cash from a successful wager — which is withdrawable.
BetMGM exclusive deposit match deal
All other BetMGM locations, besides D.C., Kansas and New York, can utilize the first bet on the house up to $1,500.
This introductory deal works slightly differently from many other welcome offers that require a first bet to unlock the bonus. Account creation with the code and a minimum deposit are the only requirements.
Similar to the Kentucky deal, bonus bets deposit instantly and are valid for seven days in the account. Bonus bets can be used once on any qualifying wager but you forfeit the stake no matter the outcome of the wager.
Here’s how it might go. If you put $100 on the Eagles -6.5 as your first bet and they don’t cover, you’ll get $100 back in bonus bets. If it wins, you’ll keep the $100 and take your $91 in profit. The promo would then be over.
If it does lose, you’ll get $100 in bonus bets. Here’s an example of how those might work — place $100 of bonus bets on a +300 wager and it hits.
- This wins $300 of cash that can be withdrawn or used on another bet
- Cash-deposited wagers would pay $400 from the winnings and the stake
Here’s what you need for the BetMGM exclusive deposit match deal.
- Visit BetMGM Sportsbook and verify your state.
- Create a new account using the register button and bonus code NYPNEWS.
- Make a minimum $10 deposit to start earning bonus bets.
