ESPN Bet has not yet announced what type of sign-up promo it will give when it launches, but there are a few common welcome bonuses that could be at play. The first would be a second-chance bet, where players can get a bonus bet of equal value to the stake of their first wager (up to a certain dollar amount) if that first bet settles as a loss. This is one of the most common offers among Michigan sportsbooks and gives players a great opportunity at early profitability.
Another option could be a deposit match, where ESPN Bet would award bonus bets that match the value of a player’s deposit (again up to a certain amount). These bonus bets could be played on their own or alongside real-money wagers.
Lastly, another common type of promo is a “Bet X, Get X in Bonus Bets.” Several other Michigan sportsbooks have run this offer type as something like “Bet $5, get $150 in bonus bets,” so ESPN Bet could look to follow a similar industry trend, perhaps with a higher bonus bet amount.
How long will it take for the ESPN Bet bonus to be credited?
The length of time it will take for the ESPN Bet bonus to be credited will be dependent on the type of bonus the platform chooses to offer. Deposit match bonuses are instantaneous once you load funds into your account, while a bonus bet offer may be contingent upon placing your first wager.
Similarly, you may have to wait as long as 72 hours after a bet settles as a loss to receive your second chance bet credits. Once ESPN Bet announces its welcome offer, we will update this page accordingly.
How do I troubleshoot if the ESPN Bet Michigan bonus is not working?
If the ESPN Bet Michigan bonus is not working, there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot. The first and most important step, which is often overlooked, is making sure you’ve met all necessary criteria. This can include placing an eligible wager, depositing a certain amount into your account, or waiting for a bet you placed to settle, and if those things haven’t happened, you won’t get the Michigan betting bonus.
However, if you’ve done all the required actions, the next step would be to log out of your ESPN Bet account, close the app or web browser you’re using, and then restart your device. Sometimes, this is enough to trip a refresh of the software and get the bonus to show up in your account. If things still aren’t working after that, you’ll need to get in touch with ESPN Bet’s customer service team.
Leading sports leagues you will be able to bet on using ESPN Bet Michigan
Because of the partnership with ESPN, PENN could bring even more sports to its betting platform than it had under the Barstool brand. Previously, 19 different sports and esports markets were available on Barstool, so we would expect a similar list of sports to be available. That being stated, we anticipate these to be the leading sports leagues you will be able to bet on using ESPN Bet Michigan.
