Naturally, this bonus is only available for those who haven’t signed up for a BETMGM account before. However, most bettors in West Virginia will have no problem qualifying for it.
Odds boosts are a type of promotion that some sportsbooks, including BETMGM Sportsbook, offer customers on a continuous basis. They are so prevalent that they often escape notice as promotions, and simply become another feature on the site.
The effect of the odds boost is exactly what one might expect. A bet with its odds boosted will out a greater amount for a winning bet than the odds would suggest.
So, to use a simplistic example, a bet that goes off at 3 to 1 would pay $300 on a $100 bet. An odds boost might mean that the same bet would pay $320 or more.
These are good bets to make if you were already considering making a similar wager, anyway. However, please be aware that sportsbooks often limit the bet size in order to keep their exposure manageable.
In other words, you won’t be able to bet the house on an odds boost. However, it can be a way to get a nice bonus on top of the winnings you would’ve normally received.
BETMGM Sportsbook also offers numerous other bonuses during the week for all players. These bonuses tend to fall into one of three categories.
In addition to the introductory free bet offer, many promotions at BETMGM will reward players with a Free Bet if they wager in a certain manner. The promoted wager might be on a certain sport, a certain game, or a certain day.
Free Bets are not transferable into cash and can only be used to bet on other games. Depending on the specific promotion, they may have additional restrictions on them.
However, as is the case with odds boosts, they can be a nice spiff for those who were planning to make a similar bet, anyway. Current Free Bet opportunities at BETMGM Sportsbook include:
- Money Monday Club
- Opt-in to take part
- Get a free $10 bet each week
- Bet Basketball Live
- Earn up to $100 in Free Bets
- Bet & Get (Follow the Puck)
- Receive a free live bet for betting on selected hockey games
- Selected other Free Bet opportunities
BETMGM Sportsbook offers insurance promotions to players from time to time. Insurance means that a player who loses a specified bet will receive a refund on his money. The welcome bonus mentioned above is one of these types of wagers.
The only catch is that the insurance money comes back in the form of Free Bets. It is not possible to withdraw one’s refund from the account.
However, it can soothe the sting if a bet loses. After all, that money was to be wagered, anyway, so it should be no problem to have another bite at the apple with it. Current insurance promotions at BETMGM include:
- Overtime Insurance
- Activates if a pre-game NFL bet loses due to an outcome in overtime
- Receive up to $25 back
- Parlay Insurance
- Triggers if a parlay goes down in flames
- Receive up to $25 back
A leaderboard promotion rewards players for their amount of play and the time they spend betting. Through a designated point system, players can move up or down the board as they engage in their normal activity.
At the end of a certain time period – usually a month – the players at the top of the board will receive cash and/or prizes. Then, the board will reset, and the process will begin again.
The NJ site offers the Power Parlay Leaderboard for its customers to compete against one another. Players can win up to $3,000 in both weekly and overall competitions.
Hopefully this promotion extends to the BetMGM WV site.
