Everyone knows that Bet America is my favorite ADW – and not just because I used to write for them or because they have greyhound as well as horse racing. Discounted pp’s for both thoroughbred and harness racing and free pp’s for dog racing aren’t the main reason I keep coming back to play on BA either, although they’re nice and convenient.
Plus, unlike another well-known ADW, I don’t have to remember to bet on the tracks I buy programs for to cover their cost. My memory isn’t what it was, so sometimes if I get a “free” program at the place with the double spires, I end up paying the full price because I couldn’t find anything I wanted to play on the program and forgot to make a cover bet.
The reason I play at BA is because I really like their handicapping pages. Most of the time, I don’t even bother to buy a program, because I have enough information right on the BA site to pick winners and exactas at both thoroughbred and harness tracks. Their speed and class ratings for maidens very often give me the winner right at the top and it isn’t always the favorite or the one that looks “obvious” either.
Now though, I have another reason to make BA my first stop of the day when I fire up my laptop or turn on wifi on my phone. For the rest of the baseball season, I could win a million dollars on a free bet. Now, I’m as greedy as the next person, so when someone offers me a chance to win a million dollars every day until October, I’ll take it.
Here’s how you can get in on the action too. You don’t even have to put up any money upfront and get reimbursed. It’s free! Right now, they’re having a special sign-up bonus where they’ll match your initial deposit up to $300! That’s $300 worth of bets free!
- Open an account at BetAmerica
- Navigate to the MLB section of the Fantasy Sports lobby
- Enter any contest labeled “$1Million Home Run Derby”
- Fill out your roster of 9 players (SP, C, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, SS, LF, CF, & RF)
- If all 9 players hit a home run that day, you will become an instant millionaire!
Even if you don’t know a thing about baseball, why not pick a player in each category and hope they hit a home run that day? What do you have to lose?
Of course, while you’re at BetAmerica, you could play a few races and rack up some reward points too, because some of the best tracks are on the rewards list. I like getting paid for playing races I’d play anyway. If you haven’t already, take a look at the handicapping pages and click on the different views of each race. Pay particular attention to Speed and Class in Maiden races in both thoroughbred and harness races.
