The Virginia sportsbook recently unveiled a simple way to score some Nationals and BetMGM cobranded swag.
Sure, Washington has virtually no chance of making the 2021 MLB playoffs. However, as far as sports betting promotions go, this one is about as simple as it gets.
Make bets, get Washington Nationals Merchandise
So, how do you score your Washington Nationals merchandise?
All you have to do is opt-in from the promotions page and bet. It’s that simple.
Once you accumulate at least $100 in sports bets at BetMGM, you’ll receive two Washington Nationals beer koozies. You can bet $100 on one game, $2 on 50 games, or anything in between to get your total handle to $100.
Then, if you reach $1,300 in wagers, you’ll earn a Washington Nationals sherpa blanket.
Of course, if you’re new to BetMGM, you get a risk-free bet of up to $1,000 upon sign-up. Just be sure to use promo code PLAYBONUS and read up on the details.
As for the Nats gear, you have until Oct. 3 to meet the wagering requirements. However, it doesn’t even matter if you’re wagering on the Nationals or any other MLB games. You can bet on any sports to work your way toward the wagering requirements. So, even if football has grabbed your betting interest hearing into the start of the 2021 NFL and college football seasons, you can still earn Nationals goodies.
How to pick up your Nats merchandise
There’s one note of caution, though. Especially if you live in eastern or southern Virginia.
Although your wagering may qualify you for Washington Nationals merchandise, BetMGM won’t ship it to you. Instead, you’ll need to head north to Maryland and pick it up at MGM National Harbor in Forest Heights to pick it up.
According to the BetMGM promotions page:
“Once guest meets threshold for prize, visit the M life Rewards Desk at MGM National Harbor to receive merchandise. Will require M life Rewards representative to add coupon to guest’s account as sign of redemption. Customer will receive confirmation player inbox after eligible bet placements.”
Players can pick up the merchandise every Tuesday-Thursday from 3-11 p.m. ET through Oct. 3.
MGM National Harbor is, of course, an MGM property, so it makes sense that they’d funnel customers there. It’s the largest and most successful casino in Maryland, with a 300-room hotel and a 125,000-square-foot gaming floor.
But before you venture there to pick up your Washington Nationals merchandise, just keep in mind these drive times from various Virginia locales:

- Charlottesville: 2:20
- Danville: 4:30
- Fairfax: 0:30
- Hampton Roads: 3:20
