Speaking of the VSiN free trial . . .

I got this email today from Scott in Virginia:

I just signed up and still on my free trial, and saw the BetMGM promo on your site if you signed up for first time on BetMGM you got a “risk-free” $600 bet. So naturally I did a 9-team parlay and hit it (attached the ticket). I credit the VSIN team for helping me out, I have been listening and reading quite a bit.

Thanks for all the great content!
