The new Major League Baseball season is in full swing and BetMGM is running a fantastic offer to complement the thrilling MLB action.
Hitting for the cycle – for those who don’t know – refers to getting all four types of base hits in a single game. The four types include the single, double, triple, and home run. How often does it happen? Well, it’s pretty uncommon and you might only witness it a dozen times a season at the most.
However, in honor of this epic sporting feat, BetMGM have built an entire promotion around it titled the “Hit the Cycle Challenge”, and here’s how it works:
How does BetMGM’s Hit the Cycle Challenge work?
Ok, let’s break it down. With the Hit the Cycle Challenge, players can receive a reward after completing each MLB obstacle.
Completing BetMGM’s Hit the Cycle Challenge isn’t difficult; in fact, it can be done with four simple wagers.
Through the end of the 2021 regular season, BetMGM customers can earn four rewards – two tokens and two free bets – with the Hit the Cycle Challenge. Here are the four steps:
Base Hit: Receive a Parlay Boost token when you place a $10 money line wager on any MLB game (-300 odds or greater)
Stand-Up Double: Receive a risk-free token when you place a $10+ parlay wager of 3+ legs on any MLB game (-300 odds or greater)
Triple: Receive a $5 Free Bet when you place a $10+ parlay wager of 3+ legs on any MLB game (-300 odds or greater)
Grand Slam: Receive a $10 Free Bet when you place an MLB futures bet
Players can complete the Hit the Cycle Challenge each week. Each Monday, the cycle is reset, and you begin earning those bonuses again with a clean slate. If you don’t complete each step by the final game each Sunday however, the reset button is hit on your cycle. You can start over and earn each reward again if that happens though.
It’s important to remember that you’ll have to log in to your account and opt-in each week to take up the challenge and you must complete the specified qualifications within each mission (in exact order, bases 1-4) to receive a reward.
Your Free Bet/Tokens – which cannot be swapped for cash – can only be redeemed via Online or App and must be used as a single bet within 7 days of them being credited to your account.
