Naturally, newly launched Michigan online sportsbooks are using the biggest sports betting event on the calendar to draw big bets and new customers. Super Bowl 55 is on the horizon with the Kansas City Chiefs facing off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Feb. 7.

And Michigan sports bettors, many still very new to the sports betting game, can benefit from the burgeoning betting landscape of 11 sportsbook apps.

Here are a few of the best Super Bowl bonuses new and existing customers can use to get some action laid down on Sunday’s big game.


DraftKings Double Your Money

It’s nearly assured that either Tampa Bay or Kansas City will cross the goal line for a touchdown on Sunday night. The folks at DraftKings Michigan know that.

They are also giving away free money when that happens, too.

New users who are making their first deposit to DraftKings Sportsbook can double their money at +100 odds by betting “any team to score a touchdown during the Super Bowl.”

Here are the details:

  • $5 minimum deposit required
  • $50 maximum bet on the wager
  • One bet per user

You must select the boost from your betslip before placing your bet in order to apply the boosted price.

If the boost does not appear, refresh the page to try opting in again. The promotion excludes live bets, parlays, free bets, cash out bets, and voided bets.

Bet $5, win $275 at FanDuel

FanDuel Sportsbook offers new customers a pretty sweet Super Bowl bonus as well, and it comes in the form of an odds boost.

In honor of the 55th playing of the Super Bowl on Sunday, FanDuel offers a 55/1 odds boost for either the Chiefs or the Bucs winning the game.

The $5 maximum bet could win $275 if you choose right.

The bet is in-app only, and new users need to register and make their first deposit for the offer to appear. The offer appears where the normal odds on the market would be and will be listed as the top market when users sign into the app.

BetMGM’s risk-free first TD bet

Super Bowl prop bets are a thing of beauty and usually include hundreds of options. At BetMGM, there are 300+ total betting markets for the Chiefs vs. Bucs game on Sunday.

As such, BetMGM Michigan gifts all customers a little risk-free prop bet of up to $20 on the first TD scorer of the game.

To take part, do the following:

  • Opt-in and place a “first TD scorer” prop bet on the Super Bowl.
  • The NFL player you choose is up to you.
  • If your bet loses, your free bets will be in your account once the wager settles.

The risk-free bet is no more than $20 so keep that in mind when you place your touchdown scorer wager. Only the first $20 of your qualifying bet is eligible for this Super Bowl bonus.

As of Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., BetMGM lists Tyreek Hill at +320 to be the first touchdown scorer for the Kansas City Chiefs. Travis Kelce is a close second at +350. Meanwhile, for the Buccaneers, WR Mike Evans leads the pack with +400 odds.

PointsBet GOAT insurance

We can quibble about which quarterback is the GOAT all day long. Is it Patrick Mahomes or Tom Brady (or someone else entirely)?

But in Super Bowl LV, PointsBet recognizes that either QB deserves the title… and you deserve a little insurance. PointsBet Michigan will give you up to $50 in free bets to cover your losses as long as the score doesn’t get out of hand.

Under the Big Game GOAT Insurance promotion, new and existing customers are eligible. The first moneyline pre-game bet counts toward the bonus — just as long as the selected team loses by a margin of 43 points or less.

The losing bet will be refunded in the form of a free bet of equal value, up to $50.

It’s a pretty safe bet as Brady’s worst college or pro loss was by 35 points. Meanwhile, the largest NFL loss for Mahomes was 8 points.

BetRivers giving out big bonuses for Super Bowl 55

BetRivers Michigan has a pair of promos to keep an eye on for the 2021 Super Bowl, both of which are worth a look.

First, there’s the Big Game Offer for new users. Use code BIGGAME500 and deposit $100 or more. That will activate $100 in bonus cash, which must be played through one time to convert to real money.

Then, bet $100 in real money wagers on the Super Bowl (-200 odds or greater) to activate the rest of the offer, which is $400 more in bonus cash. The free money will be paid off in $100 increments over the next four Mondays after the Super Bowl.

The wager must settle and house specials do not qualify. Cashouts void participation.

$55 in free bets at BetRivers

Also at BetRivers, new and existing players can earn $55 in free bets by wagering $55 on the Super Bowl.

Those free wagers will be awarded in five $11 increments over the next five Mondays after the game. Qualifying wagers must have odds of -200 or greater.

Other details for this Super Bowl bonus:

  • Free bets can be placed on any Super Bowl offering with odds of -200 or longer only.
  • For parlays, each leg must have odds of -200 or longer.
