BetMGM Offers Colorado Bettors A Week Of Wagering Surprises


BetMGM is offering bettors in Colorado and a handful of other states a new holiday promotion called the “7 Days of Parlays.” The promotion started Monday, Dec. 21 with a 21% parlay boost token available on login. The remaining six specials will be released daily, and offers could be anything from more parlay boosts to free bets, and will be available to new and existing BetMGM players.

For those taking advantage of today’s parlay, it must be two legs, which, for example, could include today’s Monday Night Football game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals, and the Myrtle Beach Bowl (Appalachian State vs. North Texas) or Tuesday’s Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (Nevada. vs. Tulane). The maximum bet is $100.

The company is also offering the special in Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee and West Virginia.

Colorado sports betting options continue to expand

BetMGM was among the first four sportsbooks to go live in Colorado when sport wagering launched on May 1, along with BetRivers, DraftKings and FanDuel. Eight months later, 20 books are available online. PointsBet became the latest when it made its digital Colorado debut on Nov. 19. Two weeks earlier, Barstool Sports made its retail debut with the promise of having a digital platform available in early 2021.

BetMGM is also offering a $500 new-player bonus in Colorado. The company will match an initial deposit dollar-for-dollar up to $500. The bonus will be in the form of an account credit.

Here is a full list of specials being offered by BetMGM through the promotion —

  • One Game Parlay Bet & Get
  • NBA One Game Parlay Insurance
  • Parlay Bet & Get
  • 25% Parlay Boost Token
  • Premier League One Game Parlay Insurance
  • NFL One Game Parlay Insurance

Since the May 1 launch, Colorado’s handle has climbed from $25.6 million for May , during an extended shutdown of professional sports, to approximately $210 million in October, the latest numbers to be reported. Colorado’s Division of Revenue does not break down revenue by operator.

Colorado’s sports betting market continues to expand — there are 33 casinos in the state, and each has multiple online skins to offer to operators. Last week, the Limited Gaming Control Board approved licenses for two international operators — 888Sports and Betsson.
