BetMGM Illinois $1,000 bonus bet: Bet bonus On Bulls & College Basketball

Written By Joe Boozell on March 5, 2022

BetMGM Sportsbook is now live in Illinois. And with our BetMGM Bonus Code Illinois PLAYBONUS you can earn a $1,000 bonus bet when you sign up.

College basketball conference tournaments have kicked off, and the Bulls are challenging for the No. 1 seed in the East. March is arguably the best month on the sports betting calendar.

Mid-major conference tournaments are already underway, and some of the big ones start this week. There will be plenty of college hoops games to bet on in the near future ⁠— at all hours of the day. You won’t be able to bet on Illinois college teams online, but every other NCAA hoops game should be available.

The Bulls have also been the toast of Chicago this year, and they have several high-profile games coming up as they jockey for playoff positioning in the loaded Eastern Conference.

BetMGM Illinois Best Bet

Illinoisans can also take advantage of a BetMGM IL Promo specifically for NBA bettors.

New customers can bet $10 on any NBA game and win $200 if either team hits a 3-pointer. The $200 would be paid out in four $50 bonus bets.

And of course, if you win your bet, you will also be paid out those profits. So if you place a spread bet on the hometown Bulls at -110 odds, you would win that money in addition to the $200 in bonus bets if either team hits a 3-pointer.

This BetMGM IL Sportsbook Promo applies to any NBA game, but if you’re looking to play it on the Bulls, they have three games coming up this week.

  • March 7: Vs. 76ers
  • March 9: @ Pistons
  • March 12: Vs. Cavaliers

Keep in mind that you will either be able to use this promotion or the $1,000 bonus bet upon signup, but not both.

BetMGM Illinois Bonus Code: How to Claim

Here is a quick guide on how to claim your bonus when you sign up for BetMGM. Note that this is for the $1,000 bonus bet offer, not the NBA promotion.

  • When creating your account, make sure to enter the BetMGM IL Bonus Code PLAYBONUS when prompted.
  • Make your deposit and you will automatically get a bonus bet
  • If your first bet cashes, you will find the winnings in your account as you typically would
  • If you lose that first bet, you get a mulligan. BetMGM will refund the entire amount of the bet (up to $1,000) in the form of credits, but you must wager that amount within seven days
