There is no better way to experience the Madness of March than in a Las Vegas sportsbook, and BetMGM is giving its online sportsbook customers the opportunity to win a trip to Las Vegas for the first two rounds of the 2021 NCAA men’s college basketball tournament.
The lucky winner will earn a VIP BetMGM Sportsbook experience at an MGM Resorts Hotel of their choice in Las Vegas.
The competition on the court, for conference titles and enhanced seeds in the NCAAs, has already begun and will only intensify. The competition for the trip to Las Vegas starts Wednesday, March 3, at noon (ET) and will run through Wednesday, March 10, at 11:59 p.m. (ET).
How To Enter And Promotion Availability
To enter this promotion, BetMGM Sportsbook patrons must first opt-in via the promotions page on the company’s website. Opting into the promotion gains a free entry, and further entries are accumulated with every BetMGM wager of at least $25 that is made on men’s college basketball games within the competition period.
Will UCLA defend its homecourt against upstart and crosstown rival USC, which boasts of the immensely talented Mobley brothers—Evan and Isaiah—and is battling for its first outright conference championship since 1961?
Those teams will participate in many dramatic games during the week of competition, setting the stage for what promises to be an unforgettable NCAA Tournament, which will be staged completely in Indiana.
The euphoria of viewing a 12 seed upending a 5 seed in the first round, or a 13 felling a 4, in Las Vegas cannot be matched, much less seeing such a historic upset like Maryland-Baltimore County’s uppercut of Virginia in 2018, the first time a 16th-seeded team defeated a No. 1 seed.
Until then, since the NCAAs had been expanded to 64 teams in 1985, such top seeds had been 135-0 against their 16th-seeded counterparts. Virginia embodied the spirit of the always-theatrical tournament when it rebounded to win it all in 2019, the last time a champion was crowned.
There is no cap to the number of BetMGM entries that can be earned during the betting period which, once again, lasts from noon (ET) March 3 through 11:59 p.m. (ET) on March 10.
Winner Selection And Prize Details
Within 24 hours of the end of the promotion period, a winner will be selected. BetMGM officials will notify the victor, who will be able to take one guest to Las Vegas from Thursday, March 18, through Sunday, March 21.
The winning package includes roundtrip domestic airfare for two to Las Vegas and three nights of accommodations at an MGM property of the winner’s choice (based on availability).
The VIP Sportsbook Experience will take place at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino. The winner also will receive $5,000 in sports-betting funds to be used during the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament. (T&Cs apply.)
