Your days as an athlete might be behind you, but you can still achieve a really special feat at BetMGM Sportsbook when complete the Hit the Cycle Challenge.
As you may or may not know, hitting for the cycle in MLB happens when you have a single, a double, a triple, and a home run in the same game. That has only happened 330 times in MLB history. It happened six times during the 2019 season.
The BetMGM version of the cycle should happen a lot more than that, even in the shortened 2020 season.
There are four “missions” that need to be completed over the course of the week. If you complete all four, you will instantly receive a $20 free bet that you can use on any event. The week goes from Monday to Sunday for this promotion and cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion, so you cannot use any existing free bets as part of your Hit the Cycle Challenge. The promotion runs through August 31, 2020.
Here are your missions:
Single – The Base Hit is a pregame wager of at least $10 on any MLB game at -200 or greater odds. All of these missions have the same stipulation regarding the vig, so you can’t bet a bunch of -250 and -300 favorites or anything.
Double – The Go For Two leg of the Hit the Cycle Challenge requires you to bet on a 2-leg parlay of MLB games. The same stipulation applies regarding favorites of -200 or higher, but the minimum bet is once again $10.
Triple – The Three-Bagger leg is the same as the double, but with one extra bet on your parlay ticket. You have to wager at least $10 on your 3-leg parlay.
Home Run – Finally, step up to the plate and Touch ‘Em All by making an in-play wager of at least $10. Live betting is the future of this business, as we know, and baseball is a sport tailor-made for live betting.
Oh, here’s the best part. You don’t even have to win all of those bets. All you have to do is place them. Now, of course, you want to win them, so you want to pick your best plays and hope that they come through, but simply completing all four of those missions will unlock your $20 free bet.
You might win on your Base Hit and Three-Bagger missions, but lose on your Go For Two and Touch ‘Em All missions. You might only win the Touch ‘Em All mission. You might only win the Base Hit mission. You might hit all four of them. It doesn’t matter. All you have to do is place the bets to qualify for the $20 free bet.
If you don’t have an account, you will obviously need to get one, but you’ll also be able to get the excellent sign-up bonus through ATS with up to $500 in free bets upon your first deposit.
With MLB in full swing, NBA and NHL back, and NFL and college football on the horizon, there is no better time to sign up for BetMGM Sportsbook.
