BetMGM Massachusetts bonus code HANDLETOP pays new customers up to $1,000 back in bonus bets if their first bet doesn’t win. If your first bet hits, you keep the cash and whatever you bet. BetMGM bonus code HANDLETOP1100 is the same offer, but up to $1,100 back. It’s available in all BetMGM states but Mass., N.Y. and D.C.
Finally, customers in all BetMGM states but New York and Washington D.C. can use bonus code HANDLETOPCBB and bet $10 on any college basketball moneyline to access $200 in bonus bets from BetMGM Sportsbook, no matter the result. It’s a lower-risk offer, albeit with a low max.
There is a market or matchup available for every customer on BetMGM. Users must be 21+, new customers, reside in a BetMGM state and have a valid payment method to qualify.

After a few days away from the action, the tournament continues Thursday night with the first half of the Sweet 16. We have some extremely close matchups, including juggernauts Gonzaga and UCLA facing off at the end of the night.
Michigan State and Kansas State face off as two darkhorse teams, not favored but certainly able to upset anyone in a wide-open NCAA Tournament. Arkansas and UConn will be another tight matchup with UConn currently favored at -3.5.
FAU is a surprise team in the Sweet 16 as they take on Tennessee in the most lop-sided matchup of the night. However, we’ve seen crazy things thus far in the tournament and FAU may shock us again.
Sign-up with a BetMGM bonus code
The process to activate your bonus code offer is fairly straightforward and similar between the two available Massachusetts bonus codes. Don’t forget that you can only redeem ONE offer so it’s important to find the one that’s best for you.
- Click here to go to the BetMGM page where you will select Massachusetts.
- Use the register button to create your new account and use either HANDLETOP, HANDLETOP1100 or HANDLETOPCBB.
- Make at least a $10 deposit followed by a wager up to $1,000 for the first bet offer or $10 on a college basketball moneyline for $200 in bonus bets.
Details of the BetMGM offers
The college basketball offer is one of the lowest commitments for bonus bets among top sportsbooks. A $10 wager on any college basketball moneyline using code HANDLETOPCBB grants $200 in bonus bets within 24 hours.
The $1,000 first bet offer, with bonus code HANDLETOP, covers your stake loss up to $1,000 if your bet settles as a loss. If you win, you keep the cash and stake like any normal bet.
If your wager is $50 or under, BetMGM will deposit one payment of bonus bets within 24 hours. If the bet was $51-$1,000, BetMGM sends five payments of bonus bets each worth 20 percent of the wager.
Make sure you use your bonus bets within seven days of hitting your account, typically within 24 hours. Users must be 21+ and reside in a BetMGM state to qualify.
First night of the Sweet 16
There are a few strategies for the Thursday night matchups depending on which offer you redeem. We’ll run through a few scenarios on how to best use your welcome offer.
If you redeem the bet $10, get $200 in bonus bets offer, you want to make the safest possible moneyline bet because BetMGM doesn’t have odds requirements and so any $10 moneyline bet can grant the $200 in bonus bets.
I like the Tennessee moneyline -250 against FAU. Tennessee may be undervalued here and this game has the chance to be the most lopsided out of any Thursday night game.
All the other games could go 50/50 and may not be the right choice for the bet and get offer. If you bet $10, you could net $4, your original $10 stake and $200 in bonus bets within 24 hours.
If you chose the first bet coverage up to $1,000, the best value out of this kind of welcome offer is a high-payout wager. In other words, it allows you to take a chance on a higher payout wager because your stake is covered up to $1,000.
Let’s say you wanted to tie together four moneylines on Thursday’s NCAA Tournament slate, and you grab Kansas State +105, UConn -192, Tennessee -250 and Gonzaga +103.
Kansas State is a solid team with potential to break open offensively and also buckle down on the defensive side and was close in the Big 12 race. Gonzaga may not be a championship contender by seed, but has the experience and pedigree to make another Elite Eight appearance.
This parlay, assuming you wager $100, would net $785 plus the original $100 if it hits. If a leg misses, BetMGM has you covered with bonus bets up to $100.
