MGM Resorts International has been a major fixture in the US gaming industry over the last 30 years, owning and operating several of the most famous hotels and casinos in the industry. Illustrious names include the Bellagio, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, the Park MGM and more. Following the Supreme Court decision to overturn the federal ban (PAPSA) on sports betting in 2018, the company moved into the online space and the BetMGM sportsbook was slated for launch in states that had recently legalized sports betting. They are currently live in Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia, making them one of the largest online sportsbooks currently active in the US market.

Sports betting at BetMGM is a relatively straightforward and worthwhile experience, thanks in no small part to their intuitive user interface and competitive selection of promotions and bonuses. For example, bettors do not need to navigate through a sea of pages in order to find the sports and markets they’re interested in betting on. Additionally, the fact that your bet slip (as well as live, future, and past bets) is readily accessible serves to help users stay organized.

However, where BetMGM truly shines is with their quality promotions and bonuses, which are among the best in the industry. Bettors can look forward to a range of offers including new user promos, daily boosts, ongoing promotions and bonuses, as well as a host of seasonal options that can vary by league. Not only are these offers available, but they are featured prominently on BetMGM’s homepage to help users quickly and easily pick up some added value. Additional features such as BetMGM’s early cash out (allowing bettors to lock in a profit or minimize the cost of a loss), “Edit My Bet” tool (change an existing bet by swapping or dropping a selection), and Easy Parlay builder only serve to reinforce BetMGM’s bettor-friendly approach.

BETMGM’S BONUSES AND PROMOS

Welcome Bonus

For starters, the BetMGM sign-up bonus is one of the more solid offers in the industry today, with new users receiving a risk-free bet up to $600. The bonus itself is pretty straightforward. Sign up for a new account with BetMGM and deposit a minimum of $10 to start placing your bets. If your bet loses, BetMGM will credit you back the amount of your wager up to $600. Even better, this welcome bonus is available to any bettor and requires no promo code to redeem. However, it’s important to remember that this offer is good for your first bet only and must be used within seven days of the funds being added to your account.

Seasonal Promos

BetMGM offers a revolving door of seasonal promotions that include (but are not limited to) weekly free bets, game-specific parlay insurance, profit boosts, and more. In an effort to provide users even more added value, BetMGM also offers league-specific seasonal promos. For example, during football season, bettors can look forward to promos such as a “Bet $1 Win $100” offer, free bet challenges, and risk-free prop bets. Similarly, for the NBA, BetMGM offers promos such as one game parlay insurance, parlay profit boosts, and more.

In addition to league-specific bonuses and promos, BetMGM brings a general variety of offers to the table at any given point. In fact, BetMGM boasts four to five promos at any given time, putting them squarely in the upper echelon of the industry. Further examples of offers at various times include free live bets, overtime insurance, price boosts, and crossover offerings with the BetMGM online casino. Users can also look forward to more promos around major sporting events such as the Super Bowl, March Madness, and others.

Casino Crossover

Given that BetMGM also maintains an online casino with a joint online wallet, bettors can also look forward to receiving offerings for both platforms. Examples of offers include free bets on the sportsbook after playing blackjack and/or other table games. Similarly, bettors wagering on college basketball or another sport can receive free bets up to $25 at the BetMGM casino as well.

VIP & REWARDS

star VIP

Unlike many online sportsbooks, BetMGM does indeed maintain a loyalty program called M life Rewards. The program features a tiered rewards system in which bettors can earn rewards points (iRPs) and/or tier credits. Players are awarded iRPs based on odds selection, bet type, and their wager amount, with more credits being awarded to parlay bets. In exchange for points, bettors can receive perks such as additional bonuses, exclusive promotions, and even comps for rooms at MGM properties, dining, and other amenities.

As the logic would dictate, the more credits you earn, the higher your tier status and the better your perks. Currently, BetMGM offers five different tiers, Sapphire, Pearl, Gold, Platinum, and Noir.

Sapphire: The first and most basic level of the loyalty program. Members receive the iRPs as advertised along with personalized offers and room discounts at BetMGM properties. All M life Rewards members are Sapphire members up to 24,999 tier credits.

Pearl: The second level of the loyalty program. Additional rewards include a 10% bonus on iRPs when making online sports bets as well as a dedicated line at participating buffets. Members of the Pearl level can enjoy additional perks from 25,000 tier credits until 74,999.

Gold: The third level of the loyalty program featuring all the benefits of the previous two levels along with a 20% bonus on iRPs when making online sports bets as well as a priority check-in line at the front desk of any MGM property. Members can enjoy additional perks from 75,000 tier credits until 199,999.

Platinum: The fourth level of the loyalty program featuring all the benefits of the previous three levels along with a 30% bonus on iRPs when making online sports bets as well as priority access for valet/taxi services at MGM properties and an annual complimentary cruise “for qualifying members.” Platinum level access is possible at only 200,000 tier credits.

Noir: The fifth and highest level tier of the loyalty program. Memberships are invitation-only and members receive a 40% bonus on iRPs when making online sports bets, guaranteed hotel and restaurant reservations at MGM properties, and complimentary limousine service with hotel stay.

States in which you can bet with BetMGM

As the official online betting arm of MGM Resorts International, BetMGM adheres to the highest industry standards in terms of legal sports betting. Following the May 2018 Supreme Court decision to overturn the 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), MGM Resorts International made use of its considerable resources to develop an online platform for sports betting. By September 2018, BetMGM had a fully functioning product and opened up shop in New Jersey.

BetMGM is currently active in the states of Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. In order to be fully licensed, BetMGM was required to undertake an extensive regulation process whereby they are monitored and beholden to the individual authorities of each state, as well as the federal government. This is good news for prospective bettors as BetMGM also maintains an online casino that is also subject to the same stringent regulatory requirements. Further cementing their legitimacy (both in the social and legal realms), BetMGM has entered into several high profile partnerships with Buffalo Wild Wings, ESPN, Sportradar, Yahoo! Sports, European gaming giant GVC, and even professional sports leagues such as the NFL (Pittsburgh Steelers), NBA (Philadelphia 76ers), and MLB (Washington Nationals).

BETMGM USER EXPERIENCE

BETMGM WEBSITE

At first glance, the BetMGM website can look a bit busy, especially with the “upcoming events” section taking up so much space on the home page. However, upon closer inspection, the simple and unadorned appearance of the website makes it surprisingly easy to navigate through the different sports and betting options. The ability to pin your favorite games and markets to the top of the page also makes the page refreshingly customizable, which can come in handy when you’re in a hurry.

In terms of pros, BetMGM certainly has what to offer users. In general, the BetMGM website is user-friendly and intuitive. For example, once bettors enter their preferred market, an extensive selection of featured games and betting options allow users to quickly and easily find their wagers. Additionally, the fact that your bet slip and bets are pinned to the side of the navigation makes it easy to both review and place your bets.

In terms of cons, BetMGM does indeed have elements it could improve. For example, while the site is overall very intuitive and user-friendly, it can be difficult to navigate to more niche betting options on major leagues such as props for both teams and players. Additionally, the fact that the sports betting guides are buried under the “promotions” tab makes it difficult to locate and is generally unclear.

BETMGM APP

Similar to the BetMGM website, the BetMGM app is first and foremost easy to navigate and generally user-friendly, despite differences from the website. For example, as opposed to the website which conveniently has the user’s bet slips pinned to the side of the page, the app stores the same feature off-screen, but with the ability to easily pull it up when needed. Additionally, the quick access to live events and betting odds make it simple to navigate to the market you’re looking for. If for some reason you’re unable to locate your sport, game, or bet type, a quick search function is a tap away.

While we don’t have a lot to hate on when it comes to the BetMGM app, there are some areas that could use some improvement. For example, during times where there are several leagues at once or during big events such as the Super Bowl or March Madness, it can be hectic at times to find the bets you’re looking for. Additionally, another pain point is the requirement for users to download the app itself as opposed to allowing them to play through their mobile browser. For users with limited storage space, this can be an issue.

BETMGM’S KEY FEATURES

Cash Out

Similar to many other online sportsbooks, BetMGM offers bettors an early Cash Out feature in which users can close out their bet(s) early in order to lock in a profit or minimize a potential loss. The feature is good for some straight and parlay bets and is based on the live action of a game.

Edit My Bet

BetMGM’s “Edit My Bet” features allows bettors to change any straight or parlay bet before the final outcome is decided. The tool allows users to add, swap, or remove a selection in order to either minimize potential losses or increase potential profits. However, in order to take advantage of the feature, the “Cash Out” option must be active on the relevant bets.

Live Streaming

Users with a BetMGM account need only make a deposit into their account to be eligible to stream live sports via the BetMGM app or your preferred browser. There are no downloads required and other than a deposit into your BetMGM account, there is no additional charge for streaming games.

“Easy Parlay”

Looking to build a parlay bet? Luckily for you, BetMGM streamlined the entire process. Bettors need only open the Parlay Builder tab to find a complete selection of bet categories for their sport such as game/team/player props, point spreads, and other popular bet types. Furthermore, Easy Parlay will also display the increase in the parlay’s overall odds with each additional selection.

CREATING AN ACCOUNT

Like many online sportsbooks, BetMGM has a relatively simple and straightforward registration process for new users. After opening the BetMGM website, users can find the registration button in the upper righthand corner of the page, after which, all you need to do is follow the instructions. In the first step, users need to enter their email address and provide a password. Step 2 consists of inserting your full name along with the last four digits of your social security number. In step 3, users must add an address and a phone number in order to successfully continue to step 4, where confirmation of legal age, terms and conditions, and provided information is true is required. Once you click on the “Create the Account” button, you have successfully completed the registration process and are ready to receive your BetMGM sign-up bonus.

After successfully registering for their account, new users are automatically eligible to receive the BetMGM sign-up bonus. The BetMGM sign-up bonus is considered one of the more competitive offerings in the industry, with only FanDuel and PointsBet offering higher bonuses. Currently, BetMGM offers a risk-free bet up to $600 as their main sign-up bonus. In as few words as possible, a risk-free bet essentially means that a user needs to make a deposit and make their first bet. In the event that the bet loses, the bettor receives the amount of their wager back in free bets up to a maximum of $600.

There are however some important terms and conditions that bettors should be aware of! For starters, there is a $10 minimum deposit requirement. Similarly, if an initial bet loses and it is more than $50, BetMGM will repay the user in denominations of 20% of the total freebet value they are eligible for. Or, in less confusing language, say you deposit $600 and bet it all. Should your bet lose, you’ll receive five free bets of $120. Additionally, free bets must be used within seven days of them being credited to your account and they are ineligible for the BetMGM “Cash Out” feature. Similarly, free bets received from this sign up bonus may not be used in conjunction with any other promotional offering and cannot be withdrawn in cash at any time.

BANKING AT BETMGM

Banking at BetMGM includes options for both deposit and withdrawal, payout times, minimum deposit requirements, and optional spending control for users.

Deposit options

The methods available to bettors to deposit funds into their BetMGM account. Options include ACV/e-check, BetMGM prepaid Play+ card, Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, online banking, PayNearMe, Skrill, American Express, and Discover.

Payout times

The time it takes for bettors to collect their winnings via the various options BetMGM provides. Depending on the method, some have different payout times as they are subject to verification by both BetMGM and the method itself (such as credit card companies or PayPal).

Minimum deposit

Simply put, minimum deposits are the amount of money required to open an account with a sportsbook. They are required in order for users to receive a welcome bonus and/or begin betting.

Withdrawal options

The methods available to bettors to claim their winnings from BetMGM. Options include BetMGM prepaid Play+ card, PayPal, VIP Preferred, check by mail, Skrill, and online banking.

Spending control

Spending control refers to budgeting on the part of users in regards to the amount of money wagered. Most, if not all, reputable and legal sportsbooks offer users the ability to set hard limits in terms of money lost in order to ensure that people gamble responsibly and within their means. Users that have issues with compulsive gambling can even voluntarily engage in what is known as self-exclusion, which is essentially a self-imposed ban on further betting.

PAYOUT

When betting with established industry giants, such as MGM, banking is one of the more reliable elements. BetMGM offers roughly six withdrawal methods including BetMGM prepaid Play+ card, PayPal, VIP Preferred, check by mail, Skrill, and online banking. Payout time is under ten days, with BetMGM processing payments in five or fewer business days. However, delays can result from processing issues with payment providers themselves. Furthermore, BetMGM does not charge withdrawal fees for any of the above mentioned methods. However, BetMGM does have a minimum withdrawal amount which users must have in their account in order to claim the contents. It currently stands at $10.

DEPOSITS

As is the standard in the industry, BetMGM offers more deposit options than they do withdrawal options. Given that BetMGM is legal in several states, there is also a slight difference in the deposit options offered per state. Currently, BetMGM offers roughly ten methods including ACV/e-check, BetMGM prepaid Play+ card, Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, online banking, PayNearMe, Skrill, American Express, and Discover. Given that credit and debit cards are both accepted, it is important to keep in mind that there are NO deposit fees required!

Additionally, payment details must match the information provided when users registered their accounts.

PLATFORM SECURITY

Being an industry leader and state-regulated internet gaming operator, BetMGM has serious, multilayered security measures in place in order to protect the user on a number of fronts, including account access, cash-outs, log-ins, and other monetary transactions.

In addition to employing one of the most advanced firewalls in the industry, BetMGM employs rigorous identification and controlled-access login tools that help to ensure account safety and protect the personal information of users. For users who are especially security-sensitive, there are optional features that can be applied to accounts. One of the most important examples is the cash-out security feature in which users wishing to withdraw funds from their BetMGM account will first be prompted to answer a predetermined security question and response, known only to the user. Additionally, upon their first withdrawal, users are required to upload official photographic identification in order to corroborate information provided earlier such as name, date of birth, and more.

To top everything off, BetMGM relies on VeriSign, a worldwide accredited clearing partner that also provides secure encryption technology that protects the personal data of users during communication with their web browser. For users who take their personal data seriously, BetMGM is one of the best in the industry when it comes to reliable security for your online transactions.

SPENDING CONTROL

In an effort to help players responsibly enjoy the thrills of online sports betting, BetMGM has built in several features to help users manage their playing experience. Examples of self-control and self-protection can range from requesting personal gaming history to setting personal limits and even self-exclusion. Personal limits offers users the option of setting daily, weekly, or monthly limits on both deposits and spending. In addition to imposing personal limits on deposits and spending, users may also opt into a time management system that allows them to limit their daily time on BetMGM’s website. However, users should be aware that requests for limit decreases are immediately implemented (eg., reducing daily play from 10 hours to 1) , whereas requests for increases (eg., going from 1 hour of play a day to 10 hours or unlimited) only become valid after a set period of time.

In addition to personal limits, users may also take the step of imposing self-exclusion. This means that any customer is able to have their account temporarily suspended for any period ranging from 3 to 180 days. Users should be aware that imposing a self-exclusion may also ban them from other state-regulated internet gaming services for an extended period of time. Users can do so via their “Responsible Gaming” option within their BetMGM account.

BETMGM’S HOLD

While it may surprise many, sportsbooks don’t take on your bets out of the goodness of their hearts. From the perspective of a sportsbook, sports betting is a strictly for-profit business that requires some serious risk management in order to avoid incurring heavy losses. In fact, this is one of the central factors involved in how sportsbooks set their odds. Rather than setting them based on the chances of an event taking place, sportsbooks set them in such a way as to attract an even amount of money on either side of a bet. This way, the sportsbook uses the funds wagered on the losing side of the bet to pay the winning side, all while collecting a profit via what is known as the “vigorish,” commonly known as the “vig” or “juice.”

Vig/Juice: The tax/commission a sportsbook charges for taking on your bet. Take odds of -110 (some of the most common in sports betting). While it’s true that these odds mean that a bettor must wager $110 to win $100, it also means that the sportsbook is netting $9 in profit regardless of the outcome of the bet. Taken off of every bet over the course of a standard sports season and the profits begin to add up.

Hold: Similar to the vig, the Hold is the percentage that sportsbooks keep for every dollar wagered. While it is not necessarily imperative to know what the hold is in order to place a bet, it is something that bettors should be aware of as it differs according to bet type. Bets with an outcome of only two possible choices (such as moneyline or spread bets), the hold tends to be lower. However, bets with multiple possible outcomes (such as futures for example) can and usually do have higher holds.

BetMGM falls on the higher side of the market when it comes to online sportsbooks. While bettors can indeed find odds of -110 and sometimes better on standard bets, more niche and specialty bets (such as player props and/or races) tend to carry a higher hold.

EDITOR’S PICKS

With the pace of sports betting legalization accelerating, more potential users are becoming available to a smaller pool of sportsbooks. As such, knowing the pros and cons of each operator is important for prospective bettors in order to find the best deals and markets possible. Having said that, why bet with BetMGM? For the simple reason that BetMGM has something for everyone. Put another way, BetMGM attempts to make sports betting accessible to a broad range of users, each with varying levels of experience with sports betting.

For example, recreational users who aren’t heavy bettors can still easily navigate both the BetMGM app and website in order to quickly find the game they’re interested in betting on. Similarly, BetMGM offers some of the best bonuses and promotions available on the legal market. Competitive offers such as the $600 risk-free bet and other regular boosts give both casual and heavy bettors something they can both enjoy on equal footing, even if some of the offers are geared towards bet types that casual bettors may be unfamiliar with.

However, by putting an emphasis on parlays by way of promos or even putting them front and center on games, BetMGM is turning more toward experienced bettors who are familiar with how parlays work and the adjusted odds that come with them. Moreover, both a thinner selection of prop bets and a higher hold on these bets in comparison to other operators can also represent a shift away from casual users, as these bets tend to be easier to understand and to relate to on the part of sports fans. Additionally, by unintentionally burying their betting guides and informational material deeper within the site, more inexperienced bettors may turn elsewhere to both educate themselves and ultimately wager.

Despite these drawbacks for rookie users, BetMGM is still an industry favorite and will continue to be so for some time by making themselves accessible to bettors of all skill levels.
