BetMGM Review

MGM Resorts Casino is probably one of the best-known casinos in the USA, so it was not a surprise when they opened their online casino and sportsbook as well.

The BetMGM Sportsbook is already up and running in New Jersey but they will expand their business to Indiana, Pennsylvania, Kansas, Michigan and Illinois in the future.

Good Selection of Sports and Markets

BetMGM is there with the best when it comes to their selection of sports. They offer around 15 different sports, including the most popular leagues in the US like NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL. Of course, you can also bet on soccer and other popular sports worldwide.

When it comes to the markets available, BetMGM offers a wide variety of different options, especially for the most popular sports like soccer where you can bet on moneyline, total goals, correct score, spreads, half time results and goals, HT/FT, etc. You can also make parlays, future bets, proposition bets and many other things.

Competitive Odds & Low Limits

Although BetMGM can’t compete with the biggest bookies in the world in the odds department, they are one of the best in the USA alone. Of course, they are only available in New Jersey at the moment but they will soon be available in Indiana, Pennsylvania, Kansas, Michigan and Illinois as well.

BetMGM has particularly competitive odds for NFL games but other US-centric sports and leagues also come with good odds. They also often have a promotion in place that allows you to boost your odds further, although this can only be done on selected events.

A Nice Variety of Bonuses and Promotions

BetMGM offers a few different bonuses and promotions, both for new and existing players. Existing players can expect new promotions often.

For example, some of the promotions active right now include weekly $10 in Free Bets for those who wager $50 in the previous week, up to $100 in Free Bets for betting on NBA or NCAA, overtime insurance, parlay insurance and a few other interesting promotions.

The Welcome Bonus 

New players who register get a BetMGM welcome offer that allows them to place a risk-free first bet and cover their losses in the amount up to $500. This offer is currently only available to players from New Jersey but we can expect the same welcome bonus to be offered to players from Pennsylvania, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas and Michigan.

You will automatically receive this bonus when you sign up, make your first deposit and make your first bet. The minimum risk-free bet is $10 and the maximum that you can get back is $500. Keep in mind that you won’t receive the entire refund back at once but instead in Free Bet increments of $10 for bets under $50, or 10 % for bets over $50.

Numerous Additional Features

BetMGM offers

The first thing you notice when you visit BetMGM is the unique, lean design. With intuitive website layout you will be able to easily navigate all the sections from the homepage and place a bet as fast as you think of it.

On the homepage, under the Main Menu, there is a list of most popular sports, so you should be able to find the game you want to bet on quickly. In this secondary menu, you will also find the live section if you want to place a bet on live games. And on the right side, there is a betslip at all times to make the entire betting process even faster.

Great Live Betting Experience

As we already mentioned, BetMGM has an extensive offer of live betting matches in the live betting section. There are many sports and markets you can bet on for in-play games but there is room for improvement here.

Another thing that lacks in the live betting section are better statistics. While BetMGM does provide some stats, this area could be much more extensive and give players a better chance to win if they are better informed.

However, live streaming is now available at BetMGM, which is great news. You can finally bet on a game and watch it on their website or app. These are mostly soccer streams and tennis matches but you may come across some other sport as well from time to time.

Well-Designed Mobile App

BetMGM follows modern trends, so it’s not a surprise that you can find a dedicated BetMGM Sportsbook app for both iOS and Android.

You can download the apps directly on the BetMGM website or go to the App Store to download the iOS app. Android app is not available on the Play Store due to Google’s policy about gambling and betting apps. The app has a very similar design as the website but it perhaps even more intuitive. The app doesn’t look as flashy as some other betting apps we’ve come across but it is easy to navigate and you can place a bet in just a few clicks.

The app has all the important features that you can find on the website – bonuses and promotions, live betting section, cash-out feature, customer support, etc.

Cash-Out Feature

One of the best features of BetMGM is the Cash-Out Feature. You can take advantage of it on certain matches when you will be given the option to cash out before the event is over. That allows you to minimize your risk or get out of a losing bet and reclaim some of the cash you wagered.


BetMGM is a reliable sports betting operator and probably one of the best you can find in the state of New Jersey. Although they have some room to improve in certain areas, like the number of markets they provide and sports you can watch on their live stream, BetMGM offers a solid betting experience.

With a wide sport selection, good in-play offers and intuitive website layout, you will have no problem to place a bet quickly and reliably. Various bonuses and promotions, as well as the Cash-Out feature, are just the cherry on top.
