Disclaimer: SportsBetting.com is not currently available in Michigan. This review and bonus offer are speculative based on SportsBetting.com in Colorado and will be updated after the site’s launch in MI.

Owned by the Carousel Group, SportsBetting.com debuted its inaugural site in Colorado in September 2020, but was expected to launch in additional states before the end of the year.

Michigan bettors will discover SportsBetting.com to be well worth their while. The online sportsbook offers a wide variety of bonuses and promotions, often revolving around local teams. SportsBetting.com operates on its own in-house developed platform and staffs its own team of odds compilers.

From newbie bettors to experienced punters, SportsBetting.com in Michigan will have the promos, odds, betting markets and the right level of information to enhance everyone’s experience regardless of skill level.

Use our exclusive links to receive SportsBetting.com’s welcome bonus of a risk-free week of betting up to $1,000. That’s double the standard offer.

Read on for more details about our exclusive SportsBetting.com welcome bonus, as well as more about the sportsbook’s other promotions, how to access and navigate the site from the convenience of your Android and iOS mobile devices via mobile browser, and the site’s sports and betting markets and banking details.

SportsBetting.com Michigan welcome bonus

Once you’ve navigated to the site via our exclusive links and registered for your new account, make a deposit of at least $10 and place as many wagers as you like. If your losses exceed your winnings by the end of your risk-free week, SportsBetting.com will cover 100% of the difference up to $1,000 in free bet credits.

You can place risk-free wagers on any sport, but only single bets are eligible for the offer. Parlays and other bets will not qualify.

For example, at the end of your risk-free week of betting, if you win $100 but lose $150, you will get $50 in free bet credits ($150 minus $100), typically within 72 hours of the end of the promo. You will have seven days to use them.

If you win $100 but lose $1,200, you will get the maximum amount of $1,000 in free bet credits.

And if you win $500 and lose $100, you will have a positive accumulation for the week and will not qualify for any free bet credits.

While free bet credits have no monetary value and can’t be withdrawn, all of your winnings from wagers made with free bet credits will be automatically added to your real money balance.

Note that free bet credits will not be added to your balance, they will appear on the bet slip as a payment alternative.

Check the offer’s terms and conditions for complete details.

Ongoing promotions at SportsBetting.com

Michigan bettors can expect to see a wide variety of unusual, exciting and fantastically fun SportsBetting.com challenges and promotions centered around the Pistons, Red Wings, Lions and Tigers, along with the rest of the Wolverine State’s teams of interest to bettors.

The highest profile promo is a monthly contest called The Jackpot, which gives more successful bettors a chance at a $1,000,000 prize. In Colorado, people were able to put their handicapping skills to the test in a $1 million football pick ’em contest in early September 2020.

Other challenges for The Jackpot might involve picking the starting grid for a Grand Prix, the number of scores in a playoff game, or winning a weekend NFL, NBA or MLS pool.

Expect to see other Michigan promotions that offer more chances to win for all bettors, regardless of skill level. You will likely see fun, innovative promos similar to offers featured recently in Colorado, such as:

  • Mile High MVP: Up to $100 betting insurance for a select Denver Nuggets (or in Michigan’s case, Detroit Pistons) game in which any player earns a triple-double. Bettors who wager on any pre-game single bet will be covered risk-free up to $100 if any player records a triple-double during the game.
  • First touchdown insurance: Betting insurance up to $100 on bets that predict the first player to score a touchdown in a select Detroit Lions game. If your player loses, but scores a touchdown later in the same game, your stake will be refunded up to $100 in free bet credits.

Another recent promotion, called the Bagel, offered $20 betting insurance for wagers on SportsBetting.com’s set betting market during the 2020 French Open. If your wager lost, but your player won a set 6-0, your wager was 100% covered risk-free up to $20 in free bet credits.

Also look for SportsBetting.com to boost the odds on select games, giving you a chance to increase your winnings.

Be sure to follow SportsBetting.com’s social media accounts on Twitter (@WeSportsBetting) and Facebook for additional giveaways, free bet credits, expert opinions and sports betting news.

SportsBetting.com software

While SportsBetting.com is still developing apps for Apple iOS and Android devices, the site can be easily accessed from those same phones and tablets via an updated mobile browser. The site also can be accessed via PC and Mac desktops and laptops.

Since Michigan law states that you must be physically located in the state to wager real money online, you will need to download and install GeoComply on mobile devices and tablets. When apps are available, this step won’t be necessary since geolocation software will be included.

Until then, the first time you log in to your SportsBetting.com account from a mobile device, you will be prompted to download the GeoComply app. To be successful, pop-ups must be enabled on your device. If the download doesn’t start on its own, SportsBetting.com will provide you with a direct link from the help center.

For Android smartphones and devices, SportsBetting.com recommends using Google Chrome for the best experience.

To enable pop-ups on Chrome:

  • Tap the alert icon to the far right of the URL.
  • Select the option to always allow pop-ups from SportsBetting.com.
  • Tap the “done” button.

Click on the odds you like to open a new bet slip. When you fill in the amount of your wager, the estimated return will automatically display potential winnings combined with your original stake.

To view all of your wagers, click the bet slip link on the right side of the screen, then click the MyBets tab up top.

Live

With live, in game betting, you will be able to wager on sports as they occur, giving you the knowledge to make bets based on what you can see for yourself.

SportsBetting.com offers an array of in game events and types of wagers. To get going, click the “live” icon at the top of the screen to see all the action available.

Traditional

Live wagering is always a thrill, but SportsBetting.com also offers a wide selection of traditional and special pregame wagers often involving local teams and/or promos.

With SportsBetting.com’s in-house team of odds setters, even standard wagers will be worth keeping an eye on. The sportsbook can set lines as competitively as it likes. You will find the following types of wagers, along with others.

  • Moneyline bets: These bets list an underdog (+) and favorite (-). If you bet $100 on the underdog to win at +230, you will receive $230 in profit. However, if you bet on the favorite to win at -230, you will have to wager $230 for $100 in profit.
  • Point spreads: One of the most popular types of wagers, particularly during football season. Unlike moneyline bets, the favorite must win by a certain number of points. If you choose to wager on the underdog, your team must either win the game or come within a set number of points based on the spread. Betting markets that list the game as “pick ’em” only take the winner into account, with points not playing a factor.
  • Totals (over/unders): Wager on the combined points scored by both teams. Your wager predicts whether the actual total will be either over or under the sportsbook’s line.
  • Parlays: Two or more individual wagers linked together to form a single bet. All individual bets must be successful to have a winning ticket. The advantage is a higher potential payout.
  • Teasers: A combination of multiple point-spread wagers in one single bet in which you can adjust the spreads (tease) in your favor. The odds will shift the same way for each wager. This will lead to a lower potential payout than betting against the sportsbook’s odds as they stand.
  • Futures: A futures bet is a wager placed on something happening down the road, such as betting on which team will win the next NBA championship or Stanley Cup. Your cash will be tied up for a longer than usual time, but the payouts are normally larger than more immediate wagers.
  • Props: Proposition bets cover a wide spectrum, often involving events that may happen during a specific game. You will find a lot of prop bets listed for live betting, such as what player will score the next touchdown, or which team will score the first point in the next quarter.

Cash-out option

The cash-out option allows you to walk away from wagers before the action actually ends in order to protect your winnings or minimize your losses. Cashing out before the game ends will result in a lower payout, but it will also guarantee that you don’t lose your entire stake if your team winds up losing the game.

SportsBetting.com offers an early cash-out option on select markets. If the option is available, it will appear on your bet slip. Click on MyBets in the bet slip window to see whether an offer is listed.
