SportsBetting.com bonus offer in Michigan
SportsBetting.com offers new bettors a welcome bonus of a full week of 100% risk-free bets up to $1,000 just for opening a new account. The site’s standard bonus offer is $500 in risk-free bets, so be sure to use one of our exclusive links when you visit the site in order to reap the maximum reward. No promo code is necessary.
To start making risk-free wagers, you will first need to make a deposit. Your full week of risk-free bets will begin the minute your deposit hits your balance.
However, you will also need to verify your account with SportsBetting.com (as well as all other online gambling sites) so that the sportsbook is in full compliance with the terms of its license. To verify your account, you will need to upload proof of your identity (such as a driver’s license) and proof of your home address (such as a utility bill or bank statement). This may take a day or two, depending on your familiarity with the process.
The site’s terms and conditions state that you have two days after registration to go through the verification process or you will risk being locked out of your account. This becomes a complete nonissue with regard to your welcome bonus if you go through the verification process before you make your first deposit, however.
Full details on the verification process are available in SportsBetting.com’s frequently asked questions section, which you can access from the home screen footer, or the site’s terms and conditions, also accessible via a link in the footer. Or you can consult with support staff via the 24/7 live chat link located at the top center of the screen.
Whenever you feel comfortable, make a first deposit of at least $10. Once your deposit shows up in your balance, you have seven days to make risk-free bets. Only single bets are eligible for this offer; parlays and all other wagers are not eligible. Only bets that have been settled by the end of the promotional period will qualify; outstanding wagers will not qualify.
At the end of the seventh day, if your losses are higher than your winnings, SportsBetting.com will refund your loss up to $1,000 in free bet credits. For example:
- You will receive $50 in free bet credits if you win $100 and lose $150 ($150 minus $100).
- You will receive the maximum $1,000 in free bet credits if you win $100 and lose $1,100 ($1,100 minus $100). Or if you win $100 and lose $1,500.
- You will not receive any free bet credits if you win $150 and lose $100, because you came out ahead for the week.
Free bet credits will be awarded within 72 hours of the end of the promotion, and can be used to place wagers with minimum odds of -200 for seven days from the moment they are credited to your account. Free bet credits will not show up in your balance; they will appear on the bet slip as an another method of payment.
Free bet credits have no monetary value and cannot be withdrawn. However, any winnings from free bet credits wagers are yours to withdraw or use however you like.

Promotions at SportsBetting.com sportsbook
SportsBetting.com places a premium on innovation, and nowhere is that more evident than the distinctive promotions it creates for its customers.
The sportsbook offers a wide range of daily and weekly special markets and promos featuring a variety of sports, local teams and big event games such as the playoffs, finals, all-star games and the like.
Its jackpot contest gives more experienced and accurate bettors a chance to win a $1 million prize. In Colorado, a football pick ’em promotion gave punters a crack at the jackpot in early September. Future opportunities may involve predicting the total number of touchdowns in a big NFL game, picking the starting grid for a Grand Prix or winning weekend football, baseball or soccer pools.
Michigan bettors can expect to see promos like first touchdown insurance, which may offer up to $100 insurance on bets that predict the first player to score a touchdown in a Detroit Lions game. If your player loses but scores a touchdown later in the game, your bet may be refunded up to $100 in free bet credits.
Or you might see a Motor City MVP promo that offers betting insurance up to $100 for a select Detroit Pistons game in which any player records a triple-double. Bettors who wager at least $5 on any pregame single wager could be covered risk free up to $100 if any player is credited with a triple-double during the game.
The Bagel, a recent Colorado promotion, offered $20 betting insurance for set market wagers on the 2020 French Open. If your pick lost, but your player won a set 6-0, your wager was covered up to $20 in free bet credits.
Free bet credit giveaways also may be held on SportsBetting.com’s social media accounts, such as Twitter (@WeSportsBetting) and Facebook.

Is SportsBetting.com legal in Michigan?
Placing real money wagers on SportsBetting.com in Michigan is absolutely legal if you are at least 21 years old and located within state lines.
The Lawful Internet Gaming Act became law in the state in December of 2019. Michigan is one of a growing number of states in the US with legal sports betting. The Michigan Gaming Control Board is the regulating agency.
The state’s three commercial and 23 tribal casinos are eligible to apply for licensing. Each casino can operate one retail sportsbook and one online sportsbook, or skin, on its license.
Pretty much all types of wagers, including live and pregame bets, are legal in the state. In addition, other than prohibited bets on sports involving athletes younger than 18, pretty much all sporting events can be wagered on.
The new laws also open the door to daily fantasy sports, online casinos, online poker rooms and regulated wagering on horse racing.
Owned by the Carousel Group, which has offices in Colorado and New Jersey, SportsBetting.com launched its first online sportsbook in Colorado on Sept. 18, 2020.
That was just the beginning. Carousel Group CEO Daniel Graetzer said the company plans to expand into legal sports betting markets across the US, with New Jersey and Michigan as the logical next steps. After that, you could see SportsBetting.com in Iowa and Indiana, and then other states.
Graetzer said his company is all about creating a fresh and innovative style, and everything about SportsBetting.com is a good example of that.
The Carousel Group is a holding company, based in Colorado, that contributes capital investment and management services to B2C companies. One of the Group’s subsidiaries, European software developer CG Solutions, developed the SportsBetting.com platform.
SportsBetting.com’s servers are hosted in certified data centers that incorporate state-of-the-art security measures to ensure that its customers’ data is securely held in the highest degree of privacy and safety.
SportsBetting.com sportsbook summary
SportsBetting.com may be new to the US gambling industry, but it has enough going for it to successfully compete with even the most firmly entrenched brands. Michigan bettors will find SportsBetting.com’s creative in-house lines, boosted odds and early cash-out options, innovative promotions centered on local teams, and generous welcome bonus to be a top-shelf experience that will hold its own against all competitors.
The fact that SportsBetting.com’s odds are set in house is worth mentioning twice. A number of sportsbooks use the same third-party or parent company odds setters, such as Kambi’s partners or Flutter Entertainment’s brands, making the lines the same among books. SportsBetting.com’s odds are just for SportsBetting.com. You will only find them here.
