BetMGM March Madness $1,000 bonus in Massachusetts, from

Massachusetts online sports betting launched just in time for March Madness.

And BetMGM has a lucrative welcome bonus offer that Massachusetts customers can use for NCAA Tournament betting.

Using bonus code PLAYBONUS, new BetMGM customers in Massachusetts will get a first bet bonus worth up to $1,000. More specifically, BetMGM will refund their first bet — if it loses — with up to $1,000 paid back in bonus bets. These types of offers used to be called risk-free bets, but MA law has cracked down on using “free” in sportsbook advertising.

Use BetMGM bonus in Massachusetts for March Madness

What better way to use that first bet promo than for March Madness betting? Only the Super Bowl is more popular in the US from a sports betting perspective. Although the Massachusetts flavor isn’t prevalent in this year’s NCAA Tournament (no teams in men’s March Madness, one in women’s March Madness), there are still nearly endless opportunities to wager.

March Madness brackets will be revealed during the Selection Sunday shows (men’s at 6 p.m. ET, women’s at 8 p.m. ET).

From there, Massachusetts bettors could use the $1,000 first bet bonus on a futures pick. Perhaps Purdue to win it all on the men’s side. Or they could select a handful of first-round moneyline wagers for a parlay with a potentially huge payout.

Again, the options for Massachusetts sports betting are just about endless.

There are plenty of free or paid March Madness betting bracket contests out there, too. However, those are paid entries as opposed to bets, so the $1,000 first bet bonus wouldn’t apply.

Terms for BetMGM Massachusetts bonus

The terms and conditions of the BetMGM Massachusetts sign-up bonus are simple:

  • Only new customers are eligible.
  • You must place the bet within seven days of signing up.
  • Minimum bet is $10.
  • There are no odds restrictions.
  • Bets under $50 will be paid back in one bonus bet. Bets $50 and above will be paid back in five separate bonus bet tokens of equal amount.

BetMGM was one of six apps approved by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to launch March 10. The other five: DraftKings, Caesars Sportsbook, WynnBET, FanDuel and Barstool Sportsbook.
