One of the most well-known names in sports betting from their presence in Las Vegas, BetMGM is now available in a few states, including New Jersey. We love their website and app, making it simple to place bets. Expect plenty of promos and special offers from this powerhouse book.

BetMGM offers an app to download from the iOS store, whilst Android users will need to download the app from the BetMGM website.
Once downloaded you'll find the app is just as impressive as the website and you'll get access to the same betting options along with promotions and additional features such as live streaming.
You can tell the BetMGM team has put a lot of resources into developing the app (this is also the case with their website). It runs very smoothly and new features are being constantly introduced to make your betting experience better.
The app is compatible with iOS 9 and higher for iPhone and iPad, and OS 6.0 and higher for Android mobile devices and tablets. BetMGM recommends that you install the latest version of your operating system to make sure you get the best mobile experience when using the app.
From the outset, you'll feel pretty comfortable placing online sports bets at the big famous name of BetMGM.
The website and app are both very simple, making even the most complex of parlay bets easy to place and keep track of. One of the features we like most is the top strap which details all of today's specials and odds boosts.
You also get to enjoy the little touches like live streaming available through the website and on the BetMGM app.
In addition to a leading sportsbook, there is also a range of table games available to play at such as Blackjack, Roulette, and Texas Hold’em which are on offer from the main page of the website.
Select the minimum and maximum odds you want any selections to be, then whether you want totals, spreads or money lines, and spin! BetMGM will make selections and show your winnings for a $50 stake.
Whilst we don't recommend using this for large stakes, it can be fun to generate a random parlay and follow the action!
You can deposit money into your BetMGM account online with your credit or debit card.
Select deposit, and enter the amount you wish to pay into the account. From there just follow the instructions entering your card details and once the transaction has been authorized you are ready to start placing bets.
Don't forget to claim the free bet for being a new user! Currently, this is a $500 Risk-Free Bet. This means that if the first bet you place doesn't win you'll receive the amount of your wager back in free bets up to $500.
To make a withdrawal submit a request via the My Account tab. The withdrawal will be reviewed and approved by BetMGM’s support team, which can take 24 hours. Once the review is complete, your withdrawal will be authorized.
If you prefer to withdraw funds in person you can visit an MGM Resorts-affiliated retail sportsbook.
To apply for the prepaid card, sign up for the M Life Rewards loyalty program account and visit a land-based, retail BetMGM sportsbook in person to activate your Play+ account.
A Play+ card will be mailed to your address within 10 to 14 days. Play+ cards may be used anywhere that accepts Discover.
Having a Play+ card means you don't have to worry about having your traditional bank cards turned down.

BetMGM provides a wide range of betting promotions. Perhaps not as many as some of the other sportsbooks such as William Hill but when they do come along we have found them to be lucrative and easy to claim.
Past promotions have included free to play games to win free bets, multi-sport parlay boosts, and free bets for regular bettors.
Currently, they are running a long-standing promotion called Monday Money Club where loyal customers can claim a $10 Free Bet for placing a total of $50 in qualifying wagers during the previous week. That's regardless of whether the wagers won or lost - a no brainer!
Everyone will be familiar with the Casino giant MGM Resorts and there is no doubt you will be in safe hands as the product brand BetMGM expands into legal sports betting in the US.
With Borgata, BetMGM opened in New Jersey before launching later in West Virginia, Indiana, Colorado, and with Michigan soon to come BetMGM is going from strength to strength as an online sportsbook.
The BetMGM brand started out life as PlayMGM before being rebranded. Lots of work has gone into making the BetMGM online experience better, and it shows in new products such as same game parlay being rolled out.
