BetMGM Sportsbook Louisiana Offering $200 Pre Launch

betmgm louisiana $200 promo

One of the world’s foremost entertainment brands is expanding its operations in the Pelican State greatly in the context of sports betting in Louisiana. A BetMGM Louisiana $200 promo is part of that push.

BetMGM Sportsbook isn’t taking bets in 55 LA parishes yet but it is accepting account registrations right now in anticipation of that activity. Signing up ahead of time could literally pay off in classic “early bird gets the worm” fashion.

Just click the button in the banner below and use the BetMGM Louisiana $200 promo code: PLAYBONUS

Don’t delay getting in on this BetMGM Louisiana $200 promo

Fortunately for all eligible bettors in LA, there are more than enough “worms” to go around. This deal expires when BetMGM’s app and website start taking bets in the appropriate parishes, so the time to act is now.

Currently, there’s no official timetable for when BetMGM might “flip the switch” online. The latest projections say early 2022, hopefully in time for the NFL playoffs and/or Super Bowl LVI.

To get in on the deal, all you have to do is:

  • Get the app onto your Android or iOS device
  • Follow the prompts to register your account

That’s it. There’s no deposit necessary for this offer. Just use the BetMGM bonus code PLAYBONUS after clicking the button in the banner above. When the apps go fully live in LA, you’ll have $200 in free bets sitting in your account. You can use that credit just like real money to place any wager(s) you choose.

Note, however, that BetMGM isn’t exactly throwing out “free money” here. You can’t withdraw any of that promotional value as winnings unless and until you use it to place a successful wager on a sporting event. It’s wise to note all the other conditions of the offer in the app so you don’t miss out on using the credit due to things like expiration dates.

The most important thing to note besides the terms of the offer is whether you fit the eligibility criteria for this deal. Birds of most feathers can flock together under BetMGM’s rules and LA law here.

At least 21 trips around the sun

The only thing that really matters here for most is age. In LA, you must be at least 21 years of age to gamble. If you haven’t made that many trips around the sun yet, you’ll need to let your feathers grow a little longer.

But didn’t nine LA parishes vote to keep sports betting illegal? Yes, that’s true. That only applies when you’re actually placing your bets, though. Even if you live in one of those parishes, or outside of the state altogether, you can still sign up for BetMGM from where you’re at. That’s as long as you’re of age, of course.

Just be aware that when it comes time to use your $200 credit, you’ll have to be within the borders of one of the 55 participating parishes to put your bets down. With all that in mind, completing the necessary registration couldn’t be much easier.

After you download the app onto your device, the prompts from the app should walk you right through the process. It’s free to sign up and the sportsbook will just need some information from you to verify your eligibility to bet on sports in accordance with LA law.

Once that’s done, you can start looking forward to using your $200 in site credit sometime in the near future. If you wager it wisely, you might be among the “fattest canaries” in the state.
