One of the most popular ways that many sportsbook sites are engaging with customers is by offering them the chance to earn a variety of prizes in free-to-enter prediction competitions. Well, BetMGM Sportsbook now has its own game of that type.
It’s called King Of The Weekend and it is a chance for you to put your sports prediction skills to the test with a chance to win a top prize of $20,000 every weekend that the competition is run, alongside a range of other free bet prizes too!
Let’s explain a little more about the game and how you can participate.

How To Participate In BetMGM Sportsbook’s King Of The Weekend
All you need to be able to compete in this competition from BetMGM is to hold anaccount with the company. If you do, then you simply need to head on over to the King Of The Weekend promotion on the promotions page of the site.
Here you will see four different tabs listed at the top of the page. Current Round, My Performance, Leaderboard and Prizes.
If you are in time to make your predictions for the current round of the competition, then the five games that have been selected to make up that week’s choice of teams will be shown.
Your aim is to predict which of the six teams will have the highest number of points or runs from the selections shown that week, in order from highest to lowest.
Once you have made your selections, you can submit them to enter the competition and then sit back and see how your predictions go over the weekend!
What Are The Prizes Available?
You can check how your predictions are going for the current King Of The Weekend game by clicking on the My Performance tab, which will show you how well your predictions are performing.
If you also click on the Leaderboard tab, then you will be shown a list of the players that have performed best in the competition for that weekend and from this, you will be able to see how many of their predictions were accurate.
The top players each week will earn themselves a prize depending on how many of their selections were correct. The prize list is as follows:
- All Six Predictions Correct And In Order – $20,000 cash
- Top Five Predictions Correct And In Order – $250 Free Bet
- Top Four Predictions Correct And In Order – $50 Free Bet
- Top Three Predictions Correct And In Order – $25 Free Bet
- Top Two Predictions Correct And In Order – $5 Free Bet
- Top Team Correct And In Order – $1 Free Bet
Remember, you are not picking the teams that will only win the games. The actual result of a game does not matter for this contest, it is simply the amount of runs or points that a team scores that is the sole criteria for this competition.
You can edit your picks right up until the start of the weekend’s games, which gives you flexibility to make changes right up to the kickoff time of the first game in the list this week.
If more than one player wins the $20,000 cash prize, then the prize will be divided between all the players that landed all six predictions correct and in order that week.
One important other thing to note is that if a game is postponed from its original time slot, but is played within 36-hours of the original kick off time, then the game will still count towards the King Of The Weekend Promotion.
What Happens If Two Teams I Pick Have An Equal Number Of Points Or Runs?
Let’s say that you select the Los Angeles Dodgers as your highest scoring team and the San Diego Padres as your second highest scoring team on a forthcoming King Of The Weekend coupon.
Now let’s say that both these teams score the same number of runs, but are the two highest scoring teams on the coupon.
Provided you had selected them as 1 and 2 on your entry, then regardless of which team you had first or second, both would be registered as wins for you.
If you had them down as 2 and 3 on your entry, then one would register as a win, while the other would register as a losing selection.
However, if you had selected them as say 3 and 4, but they were the highest scorers, then this would of course not register either team as a win.
Remember the King Of The Weekend promotion is completely free to enter every week, with the games selected on the coupon available to make your predictions on from each Thursday. The competition is scheduled to run until the 9th September, so you have two more chances to enter before the offer ends.
