BetMGM Massachusetts pre-launch bonus, from

BetMGM Massachusetts will go live on March 10, and BetMGM is giving MA bettors a pre-launch bonus to claim.

From now until online sportsbooks launch at 10 a.m. on March 10, new customers who download the app and create a BetMGM Massachusetts account will get $200 in bonus bets if they use the bonus code PLAYBONUS.

The terms of this pre-launch promo offer are extremely user-friendly. You simply must be a new BetMGM Sportsbook customer, you must register prior to launch and you must be 21 years or older. No deposit required. It’s important to note that, if you sign up for this offer, you won’t be eligible for whatever MA sportsbook welcome bonus BetMGM offers when the app is officially live.

Claim $200 in bonus bets with BetMGM Massachusetts pre-launch bonus

The $200 will be broken down into four $50 bonus bets. You either use the whole $50, or you don’t use it at all. In addition, it’s important to remember a winning bet that uses a bonus bet will only pay the winnings — not the winnings plus the original stake. This isn’t unique to BetMGM. It’s the case with all bonus bets across all US sportsbooks.

The bonus bets expire after seven days.

BetMGM Massachusetts is one of 10 online sports betting apps approved to launch in MA. And it’s one of six expected to launch on March 10. Those six?

  • BetMGM
  • DraftKings
  • FanDuel
  • Caesars Sportsbook
  • WynnBET
  • Barstool Sportsbook

Betr expects to launch in late March or April. Bally Bet and Fanatics Sportsbook will launch in May. Betway will launch in January 2024.

What does pre-launch offer mean?

When a Massachusetts sports betting app offers a pre-launch offer, they’re hoping to motivate customers to download their app and be prepared to place wagers on that app when launch day comes. In other words, BetMGM is trying to incentivize Massachusetts bettors to already have their app downloaded and ready to use come March 10.

With pre-launch offers, customers don’t need to do anything other than sign up and create an account. That’s it. It’s the easiest bonus bets they’ll ever get.
