Get $200 in free bets from the World Cup

BetMGM bonus code ACTIONCUP all new users will receive $200 in free bets if a single goal is scored in the tournament.

Simply log into the cashier with this code, then wager $10 on any pre-game moneyline for the Worlds and you’ll get $200 no matter what. BetMGM returns these free bets in four $50 increments.

Even if you’re not a football fan, it makes sense to take advantage of this offer as it involves less risk than the $1,000 risk-free BetMGM usually offers.

This offer is available in all BetMGM states except New York and Pennsylvania. If you’re in Ohio or Maryland, you can take advantage of one of these two offers before they launch:

Maryland: Use this link to claim $200 in free bets before launch later this month. Same offer as Ohio, but you must use this link to sign up instead of a code.

Ohio Users: ACTIONOHIO receive $200 in free bets with no deposit required.

Part 1: Getting the free bets

First you need to activate the free bets. This requires a $10 money line bet prior to playing the World Series.

So let’s say you bet $10 on Iran vs England at +1000. If Iran wins, you keep the $10, win $100 and also get $200 in free bets.

If Iran loses you lose $10 but still get $200 in free bets.

It’s a better offer than the risk free bet because you really don’t have to risk much – you can just deposit $10 and have big profits. For the no-risk bet, you actually have to risk a lot and you can potentially lose it all if you’re not careful.

Part 2: Using the free bets

Once you have the free bets, of course you want to take advantage of them. And how do you use them? The optimal way is on plus money bets. In tight markets there is a nice sweet spot between +300 and +500 that allows you to convert those free bets into cash at a good rate.

Let’s say you take your first initial bet of $50 and place it on the United States beating Wales 1-0 as a backing for the exact score, with a price of +575.

  • If USA wins 1-0, you win $287.50 ($50 x $5.75) but you don’t keep the initial $50 free bet. So you now have $287.50 in your account, plus $150 in free bets remaining.
  • If the USA loses, the free bet disappears and you are left with $150 in free bets.

Our BJ Cunningham wants USA to get all three points:

The United States midfield should be able to dominate this game, controlling possession and stopping any kind of Welsh counterattack. I also expect Wales to play very conservatively as the second group game against Iran is the best way to get all three points.

For the US, the question is can they break Wales low bloc? Given the offensive talent the United States has on the wings and given the amount of xG Wales have conceded against good competition, I say yes and I believe it will result in a win.

I like it when the United States gets all three points at +150.

You don’t have to use all your free bets at once, which allows you to spread them across a few different bets. But here, too, plus money is optimal.
