In-Depth Reviews

The BetMGM online sportsbook is very much on-brand with the rest of the company with its black and gold motif. As one might expect of a company with a casino and entertainment background, the BetMGM site doesn’t try to hide its promotions and bonuses being offered to players. With parlays increasing in popularity, this is a point of emphasis at BetMGM. For some games, there is a tool that makes it easier for users to put together one-game parlays.

Overall, BetMGM offers bets on a little more than 20 sports, although the sportsbook puts a lot more emphasis on mainstream sports like football, basketball, boxing, and others. For every event, it’s possible to find all of the standard types of betting, including totals, spreads, and moneylines. However, the options are a little more limited when it comes to player and game props. The navigation to get to these bets isn’t always easy, as BetMGM places much greater emphasis on the major sports and the traditional forms of betting like spreads and totals rather than more niche options.

The non-betting portions of BetMGM are solid but unspectacular when compared to other prominent sportsbooks. For example, it takes multiple prompts for users to have the option of sending an email or starting a live chat with a customer service representative. The site also lacks information that can help guide novice bettors who aren’t accustomed to betting on sports. On the bright side, BetMGM makes it easy to deposit and withdraw funds, bet on live events, and cash out before an event ends. Registered users can also live stream events, which is a nice bonus that won’t be offered at every online sportsbook.

BetMGM’s current promotion for new users offers a $1,000 risk-free bet. After registering a new account and making a deposit, if a user loses their first bet, they can get that money back up to $1,000. However, that money comes in the form of free bets, meaning it can’t be withdrawn from your account, only used for other bets. Also, bets over $50 will be returned in 20% increments. Users also have seven days to use those free bets once they’re credited.

The promotions page at BetMGM also includes over half a dozen other offers, most of which are geared toward the major sports that are in-season at the time. In certain states, the promotions page also has offers for BetMGM’s poker and online casino platforms.

For the most part, the BetMGM mobile app is as easy to navigate as the online version. Users can search for events by sport and should have no problem locating promotions, setting up parlays, or managing the bet slip. At no point will a user lose sight of their bet slip or the main navigation page, making navigation seamless, as users won’t have to keep moving back and forth between various pages or losing sight of their bet slip.

While the BetMGM mobile app is available for both iOS and Android devices, Android users tend to report a few more problems. There are more instances of the app freezing and needing to be restarted. There are also more reports of Android users requiring troubleshooting with customer support, which can take time and slow down the entire process of placing bets.

Overall, BetMGM offers a quality online sportsbook. Given the company’s reputation and longstanding history with resorts and casinos, it’s not surprising to see BetMGM put together a functional sportsbook that is capable of competing with some of the best on the market. However, BetMGM is best for bettors who want to keep things simple. It’s not ideal for sports outside of the mainstream or for players who frequently like to do prop bets or anything else outside of spreads, totals, and futures. It’s best geared for casual bettors who bet on mainstream sports and like to take advantage of promotions and boosters and perhaps want to experiment with parlays. But more serious sports bettors may want to explore their options before settling on BetMGM.
