MGM Resorts International has been around since 1986, but it wasn’t until 2018 that they were finally able to launch the BetMGM online sports betting platform. Since then, BetMGM has had numerous partnerships in North America across the spectrum of sports associations. These partnerships have included Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, and various National Football League teams.

In this space, we’ll provide an overview of BetMGM Sportsbook and the BetMGM bonus code. We will take a look at both the BetMGM website as well as the BetMGM app.

You will also find instructions on how to create a BetMGM account, not to mention how to claim a welcome bonus when you sign up.

How to Sign Up with BetMGM Sportsbook

Registering with BetMGM Sportsbook is a relatively easy process. However, for the sake of security and for legal purposes, you should make sure you are able to verify your identity and confirm your age as you begin the process.

First, visit BetMGM, whether using the BetMGM desktop site or the BetMGM app.

Key in your email and continue. Alternatively, you can make the registration process quicker if you already have a PayPal or Yahoo! Sports account.

You will need to provide standard information, such as your name, address, date of birth, and the last four digits of your social security number.

With your BetMGM account verified, you should be able to make your first deposit. The minimum deposit is $10. However, when using the BetMGM Sportsbook promo code, you may wish to fund your account with more than the minimum deposit.

Here are step-by-step instructions to sign up for the BetMGM bonus code:

Making a Wager with BetMGM

Once you’ve got some bonus bet credits at your disposal, it’s time to make a bet. Events with available ‘Live Betting’ are displayed front and center, right in the middle of the sportsbook’s homepage. Odds will update on the fly as game circumstances change. Additional markets exist on the left side of the website under the ‘Popular’ heading, or via ‘Top Sports’. Either way, you’re never more than a click or two away from the game you want.

After you’ve identified the bet(s) you want to make, all you have to do is click to add them to your Bet Slip where they will all be laid out for you. You can also combine multiple bets for bigger paydays when building parlay cards.

Once active on the Bet Slip you simply have to choose the stakes, and finalize the wager. Voila, you’ve made a sports bet.

If you are not in one of the above locations to enjoy online sports betting with BetMGM Sportsbook, do not despair! Mobile sports betting is gradually becoming legal in other states, opening the door for the BetMGM mobile app to become available to users in other locations.

North Carolina recently passed legislation legalizing online sports betting. Residents in the Tar Heel state can place online bets as of March 2024.

Active States: Where You Can Use BetMGM

BetMGM is picking up momentum. Like most operators, its first taste of regulated online betting in the United States came in New Jersey, where its online product began accepting wagers on August 22, 2018 under the playMGM name. Since then expansion into new markets, plus a savvy rebrand to BetMGM, has only increased its notable profile. Here’s the full breakdown of BetMGM from state to state:

North Carolina

North Carolina sports betting is live right now! Register now using code SAOBONUSNC, then Bet $5 to Get $150 Instantly in Bonus Bets After Placing Your First Wager!.

Must be 21+ and present in North Carolina. Full T&C apply. Gambling problem? Call 877-718-5543 or visit

New Jersey

While the Borgata AC is owned and operated by MGM Resorts, you won’t find an official BetMGM branded sportsbook on-site. Don’t worry, though, bettors can still deposit and withdraw from their BetMGM online accounts in person at the Borgata casino cage in NJ.

West Virginia

BetMGM entered the WV market in January 2020 using a skin on The Greenbrier’s gaming license. It is not, however, an MGM property nor the retail sportsbook sponsor on site. That distinction falls to FanDuel. Thus, BetMGM customers in the state are not able to deposit/withdraw from their accounts in person at The Greenbrier, it must be done online.


Similar to West Virginia, BetMGM accepts wagers in Indiana using the Belterra Casino’s license, but once again it is not the on-premise sportsbook sponsor (also FanDuel). All banking transactions, too and from the account, will need to be done online.


MGM has many retail partners in Nevada. BetMGM actually still goes by their old name, playMGM. While you can satisfy some of the playMGM NV registration requirements online, you must visit an in-state MGM property to finalize the process before you can make an online bet.

First, download the app and register an account, where you’ll be prompted to enter the bonus code. After registration on the app is complete, you’ll be asked to go to the sportsbook in person to verify your identity and complete the process.

You can complete registration, and deposit/withdraw from your account in Nevada from any of the following locations: Bellagio, ARIA, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, Mirage, Monte Carlo, NY-NY, Luxor, Excalibur, or Circus-Circus.


MGM Resorts can be found all over the world, however, they do not currently operate any brick-and-mortar casinos in Pennsylvania. Thus, when it came time to apply for online licenses, MGM was initially left out in the cold. However, after a few went unclaimed, the opportunity to enter the Keystone State in an online-only capacity was too good to pass up. BetMGM brought both their online casino and sportsbook to the PA market in December 2020.


BetMGM is live in Colorado as of May 2020. You can wager on pretty much everything in Colorado, except for college props. For example, if you want to bet on your favorite college basketball player scoring 15 points, it’s unfortunately off limits. Beyond that, the sky is the limit.


BetMGM has no casino or licensing partner in Tennessee because the state doesn’t require them. TN is an online-only betting market, there are no retail sportsbooks.

Betting restriction-wise, college player props are the only notable items that are off the table.


BetMGM landed in Iowa in early 2021, just as the state eliminated the in-person registration requirement. As of Jan 1, 2021, registration can be done both in-person and online via your computer or mobile device.


BetMGM was among the first online sportsbooks to accept wagers in the state of Michigan on January 22, 2021. The company is partnered in state with its own MGM Grand Detroit casino.


BetMGM launched in Virginia in January 2021, and brings all the same action to the Commonwealth that you have come to expect from one of the industry leaders. The only exception in Virginia is that in-state college sports is off limits, so you would need to travel outside the state to place your UVA bets elsewhere.

Washington D.C.

To the surprise of many, BetMGM hit the market in the nation’s capital on June 10th, 2021. An agreement was struck between the company and the local Major League Baseball team, the Washington Nationals, for a licensing partnership. BetMGM will provide a full-service retail betting experience at Nationals Park. In addition, the BetMGM online sportsbook app is available in the stadium, and within a two-block radius outside.


Yes, Wyoming has legal sports betting, and BetMGM was one of the first sportsbooks to go live in the state. The state may not have a lot of people, but it does have some unique sports betting laws. First, you only have to be 18 to bet rather than the traditional 21. Second, sportsbooks are allowed to accept cryptocurrency as payment, as specified by the legislature, though none have included it in their banking options yet. Third, all betting in Wyoming is online-only; there are no casinos or retail sportsbooks in the state.


BetMGM wasn’t among the early entrants to the Illinois sports betting market, but in 2022 they decided the time was right to join the crowded market with an online-only license. There are plenty of eager bettors in Illinois, so this will no doubt be a good decision. One note: online betting on in-state college teams is now allowed, so you will have to go over to Indiana or Iowa to wager on your favorite Illinois college team.


The Grand Canyon State has had a great deal of success with its legalization of sports betting since things got going in September 2021. All the biggest operators are in Arizona and revenue has been high. BetMGM is front and center, partnering with the super-popular Arizona Cardinals for its online license and even opening up a large retail sportsbook at the team’s stadium.


Like many other states, Louisiana is full of passionate sports fans and welcomes millions of tourist visitors each year. Those tourists now have legal online sports betting available to them, including BetMGM, which is almost as exciting as the food in New Orleans. Not quite, but close.

New York

Note: As of July 1, 2022, BetMGM has suspended all promotional offers in the state of New York. You can still sign up for an account, but you won’t receive any new customer or special offers. We will update this page when/if they change their policy.

The biggest state for sports betting is, unsurprisingly, New York state. It quickly supplanted New Jersey as the state with the most revenue generated from sports betting. Millions of bettors in the state only have nine licensed operators to choose from, which is kind of a bummer, but at least one of the nine is BetMGM.


Sports betting launched in Kansas on September 1, 2022, and BetMGM was there on Day 1 through a partnership with the Kansas Crossing Casino. No word yet on whether this partnership includes a retail sportsbook or is online-only.


BetMGM arrived in Maryland through a partnership with the company-owned MGM National Harbor, a very popular casino outside of Washington, DC.


Similar to Kansas, BetMGM was in Ohio on day 1, launching its mobile sportsbook on January 1, 2023 through a partnership with the company’s MGM Northfield Park casino.


BetMGM launched in Massachusetts on March 10, 2023, the first day it was authorized to do so. There is an MGM casino in western MA, which allowed BetMGM to easily gain access to the MA mobile market.


BetMGM Kentucky launched on September 28, 2023. Previously, BetMGM announced plans to open a retail sportsbook at Sandy’s Racing and Gaming in Ashland, KY.

Now that BetMGM is available in the state, Kentucky sports bettors can register at BetMGM using our promo code to receive a great offer from the sportsbook.

BetMGM in Canada

Not only is BetMGM in over a dozen states, it’s also in Canada! Ontario opened up its borders to sports betting on April 4, 2022, and BetMGM was among the first wave of sportsbooks to go live in the province. This is good news for our Canadian friends because the same great BetMGM app available in America is now available in Canada’s most populous province.

BetMGM Sportsbook Mobile App Review

The BetMGM app is available for desktop, Android, and iOS and can be found in the Google Play store as well as the App Store. Also, while visiting the Google Play store or App Store, you are able to read reviews that other users have left behind not to mention responses from BetMGM Sportsbook.

Because the BetMGM app needs your location before you can make a wager, you’ll need to make sure that the permissions on your device allow the app access to your location. Without that enabled, you won’t be able to place bets (although you can still deposit funds in your account).

While the BetMGM app lacks the visual appeal and responsiveness of the desktop site (especially on a large flatscreen monitor), it is a popular way to build a bet slip while on the go. It is especially suitable for making live bets, such as if you were watching the game with your friends at a sports bar or someone else’s house.

BetMGM brings an efficient sports betting experience to the market. When you first pull up the app you’ll see popular events displayed front and center. Spread, total, and moneyline will be the first options you see, with an easily accessible ‘Game Props’ button just below that yields a much larger betting sheet.

The mobile BetMGM experience revolves around an easy to use menu at the bottom of the app. From it you can easily select the sport you want (listed from A-Z), see live games, view your active wagers, check your bet slip, and contact support.

The browser-based book is equally easy to use, though most of the menus and available betting options can be found either at the top of the page, or along the left side. After selecting a bet via browser, your slip will be prominently shown towards the right of your screen, also showing options for parlays and round robins.

BetMGM Sportsbook Desktop Review

There is a convenient menu of sports to bet on listed alphabetically on the left-hand side of the screen. A similar menu stretches across the top of the online sportsbook. Selecting a sport will allow you to view the competitive odds for various types of wagers, whether moneylines, spreads, or totals. To the right, you will find your bet slip. You can toggle between the current bet slip you are building and wagers that have yet to be settled. New users should have no trouble making their first wager with their BetMGM Sportsbook account.

When you’re ready to make that first wager, all it takes is clicking your pick directly. This will populate the bet slip on the right. Clicking it again will remove the bet from the slip. You have the option to bet straight or build a parlay, teaser, or round robin. Those options appear at the top of the bet slip. Before placing a bet, you will need to enter the total amount you are willing to stake.

All in all, the BetMGM Sportsbook desktop experience is clean and intuitive.

Bet Types You Can Wager on BetMGM

BetMGM Sportsbook provides many choices for users:

One-Game Parlay

A parlay ties multiple bets together (called “legs”). This results in a higher potential payout compared to betting on each leg individually. In order for a parlay to cash, however, all legs must be winners.

BetMGM Sportsbook offers one-game parlays in which bettors can take advantage of correlation in a single sporting event.

For example, you might create a one-game parlay pairing the over on Max Scherzer’s strikeout prop with the Texas Rangers moneyline. The thinking behind this is that if the Rangers win the game, Mad Max probably had a good day on the bump.

You can use the BetMGM bonus code on BetMGM

Available Markets You Can Wager on BetMGM

Whether you are a fan of one or more of the major sports leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL) or follow niche competitions, BetMGM Sportsbook has something for everyone. There is even an online casino available in four states. MGM Resorts International accepts wagers on the following markets:

Existing Promotions for Current Users

Like many gambling sites, BetMGM sportsbook offers a variety of bonus offers to keep bettors engaged. Each BetMGM promo mentioned below is available for current users.

BetMGM sportsbook offers a daily parlay boost known as “Lion’s Boost.” Using the BetMGM website or BetMGM app, users can add the Lion’s Boost recommendation as a quick and convenient way to lock in a correlated wager.

For bettors who enjoy the thrill of crafting same-game parlays, the BetMGM sportsbook offers a type of insurance to protect one-game parlays. By opting in, you can create a same-game parlay of at least four legs (ten legs maximum). If your parlay loses by one leg, this BetMGM promo kicks in, providing you with a $25 bonus bet.

The BetMGM online sports betting experience also rewards users with Boosted Parlay Tokens. Users will notice a green banner alerting them to available tokens. After constructing the desired parlay, bettors can apply the token provided by the bonus offer. This will boost the BetMGM odds of the parlay, leading to a bigger payout if it hits.

Are you a current BetMGM sportsbook user and want to share this experience with your friends? The BetMGM online sportsbook offers a generous refer-a-friend bonus. Have your friend join BetMGM through the refer-a-friend invitation. Once your friend has created a verified account and met the refer-a-friend requirements (the friend would need to make a minimum deposit, place bets, etc.), you will both receive $100 in bonus bets. You can refer up to twenty of your friends, which means you can potentially earn $2,000 in bonus bets.

Be advised that the friends you refer to the BetMGM sportsbook must reside in the same state as you and make an account with that same state. For example, if you are using the BetMGM online sportsbook in West Virginia, then any friends you refer to BetMGM must physically be in and register as a West Virginia user. If your friend registers for a state other than West Virginia, neither you nor your friend will be eligible to claim any BetMGM rewards related to the refer-a-friend promo.

BetMGM Casino

Not only do BetMGM mobile app users have the option to bet on their favorite sports, but they can also enjoy the added entertainment of online casino gaming. BetMGM boasts a wide range of online casino games, including jackpot slots, table games like blackjack and roulette, and virtual sports. For poker aficionados, there is an online poker room experience, and for novices, BetMGM provides poker school, laying out rules and tips for Texas Hold’em, Omaha variations, and more. The BetMGM casino app offers various promotions from time to time as well.

Not all states permit online casino play. At present, BetMGM mobile casino games are only available to users in four states: New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and West Virginia
