BetMGM Sportsbook has launched in Illinois during the best month on the sports calendar. Timing is everything in life.

There will be plenty of daytime college basketball this week with major conference tournaments kicking off, and the NBA is in full swing. The hometown Chicago Bulls are scuffling a bit, but they have two winnable games coming up against the Pistons and Cavaliers.

If you haven’t taken advantage of BetMGM sign-up offers already, here are the best options.

BetMGM Illinois $1,000 bonus bet

If you’re looking for a sign-up offer, you can use the BetMGM Illinois bonus code PLAYBONUS to unlock a bonus bet of up to $1,000.

To access, you must deposit money. Upon entering the bonus code, BetMGM will give you a bonus bet of up to $1,000, meaning you keep the profits if you win and get a second chance at a bet if you lose.

And yes, there will be daytime college basketball going on at all hours of the day this week. The ACC Tournament tips off on Tuesday afternoon, while the Big East action begins Wednesday. Selection Sunday is days away, so there will be plenty of high-stakes college hoops games to bet on in the coming days.

Heck, there will also be a lot of low-stakes college hoops games to bet on if that’s more your speed as well as full NBA and NHL slates, per usual. Speaking of the NBA, BetMGM also has a no-brainer sign-up offer centered around the association.

BetMGM NBA bet $10 to win $200, plus boosts

Illinois BetMGM also has an offer where if you bet $10 on any NBA game, you win $200 in bonus bets as long as either team makes a 3-pointer. The winnings are paid out in four free $50 bets, and they must be used within seven days of when they are issued.

Note that you cannot use this offer and the $1,000 bonus bet.

If you would like to use the promotion on an upcoming Bulls game, Chicago plays this week on Wednesday against the Pistons and Saturday against the Cavaliers.

BetMGM is also offering various parlay boosts. On Tuesday night, for example, you can ride with these boosted parlays:

  • Nets, Cavaliers, Suns all to win: +280
  • Grizzlies, Warriors and Hornets all to win: +375

It’s also worth checking the app at various times if new boosts become available. For instance, BetMGM offered a DeMar DeRozan points boost before Monday night’s game against the 76ers called the Lion’s Share Boost. Keep an eye on those types of boosts closer to tip-off for local games.
