BetMGM Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the best promo code to use for BetMGM?

BetMGM doesn’t require you to enter a promo code; all you need to do is follow this link to get a 100% deposit match of up to $500.

How does the 100% deposit match (up to $500) work?

Deposit matches are generally great promotions for bettors to take advantage of, and BetMGM’s is no exception.

It requires a 2x rollover, meaning you have to wager 2x your bonus offer before being able to withdraw funds.

Let’s say you make a $500 deposit. If you follow this link, you’ll INSTANTLY get $500 in bonus bets deposited into your account. You can withdraw whatever you turn those $500 in bonus bets into after you wager $1,000 (2x the bonus amount).

Is it legal to bet on sports using the BetMGM app?

Yes. BetMGM is a fully legal, regulated online sportsbook operating in four states: New Jersey, Indiana, West Virginia and Colorado.

Which states allow betting via the BetMGM app?

As of May 1, there are four states that allow online sports betting via the BetMGM app:

Can I download the BetMGM app even if I’m not in one of those four states?

Yes, but you won’t be able to make any bets unless you are in New Jersey, Colorado, Indiana or West Virginia.

BetMGM will confirm your location through your phone or computer GPS. As long as you’re in a legal state, you can bet. If you live in one of those states but are not within the borders, you will not be able to bet.

Do I have to be a resident of New Jersey, Colorado, West Virginia or Indiana to bet on the BetMGM online sportsbook?

No. You just need to be inside the state border, at least 21 years old and a United States citizen.

BetMGM will use a GPS to confirm your location and make sure you are within its legal jurisdictions. As long as you’re in the state, you can place a bet.

Can I withdraw money from BetMGM if I’m not in a legal state?

Yes. You can take out money from your BetMGM account from any location, though you will not be able to place a bet until you are back in a legal state.

Do I have to go to a MGM casino to sign up for a BetMGM sportsbook account?

No. If you’re hoping to use the BetMGM app in New Jersey, West Virginia, Colorado or Indiana, you do not need to physically go into one of its brick-and-mortar locations to register and fund your account. You can do all of that on your computer or smartphone.

Is a 1x rollover the industry standard?

Most sportsbooks require rollovers to access bonus funds, and many of them require much larger rollovers. For example, for some books if you get a $100 deposit match, you’ll have to wager 10x that amount to get access to that cash. With BetMGM, you just have to wager the amount of your first bet, which is a great offer.

What’s the minimum deposit I can make?

BetMGM requires new users to deposit at least $10.

What is the minimum bet amount?

You can make bets on BetMGM starting at $0.50, which is nice for beginning bettors.

What type of devices can I use to create an account on the BetMGM app?

  • iOS
  • Android
  • Computer (Mac or PC)

Can I deposit into my account via PayPal?

Yes, BetMGM accepts PayPal. It’s one of the easiest methods to both deposit and withdraw money, so we recommend it.

How fast can I withdraw money from my BetMGM account?

Fast. Legal, online sportsbooks like BetMGM will deposit the money in your bank account just a few days after requesting a payout. One of the easiest ways to do this is by hooking up your bank account to direct deposit both ways.

Is it safe to bet using the BetMGM app?

Yes, BetMGM is safe.

BetMGM is one of the most established brands in gaming and is indeed legit. You do not need to be worried about being scammed. It is licensed to offer sports wagering within specific states, and as such it is required to abide by its terms and conditions and pay out all winning bets.

Since BetMGM is a legal, authorized U.S. sportsbook, your money is protected in any situation, even if they go out of business.

How is BetMGM different from Bovada?

There are plenty of important differences between BetMGM and Bovada. For one, Bovada is an illegal sportsbook in the United States. It is based outside the U.S., and, perhaps most importantly, it is not regulated by the federal government or any specific state. This means that you have almost no options in an event of fraud or anything else.

In contrast, BetMGM had to go through a rigorous regulatory process to become a legal online sportsbook in New Jersey, Colorado, West Virginia and Indiana. It has to follow the rules set forth by those states. It’s required to report its betting handle to the state and pay taxes.

Other huge benefits to using BetMGM as opposed to illegal sportsbooks:

  1. You can deposit and bet with ease (within seconds of making your deposit).

  2. The bonus you receive is not subject to arduous rollover requirements; you have to roll over your free bets only once before being able to withdraw the money from your account.

  3. It won’t take you weeks and weeks to receive your money when you request a withdrawal. Instead, you’ll get the money in your account in just a few days max and oftentimes sooner if you use PayPal or hook up your bank account.

Does BetMGM charge fees?

You will not be charged for withdrawing or depositing at BetMGM. That said, all sportsbooks charge “juice” or “vig” on each bet, which you can read more about in our sports betting glossary.

Juice differs by sportsbook, but on standard bets like the spread or over/under, it’ll be 10%.

Why does BetMGM need my social security number and other personal information?

Your social security number and personal information are used solely to make sure you’re able to bet by being of legal age and a U.S. citizen. Your information is secured at BetMGM.

Will my winnings be taxed?

BetMGM pays taxes to the states it is authorized to operate in. However, sports betting winnings at any book, including BetMGM, are taxable. Any year-long winnings over $600 will be taxed.

Losses from gambling can be claimed as a deduction, although you’ll need to itemize your deductions.

In terms of deductions, you’re capped at the difference between your gambling wins minus your losses. For example, if you win $2,500 and lose $5,000, you can claim only $2,500 in losses — not the additional $2,500.

Who owns BetMGM?

MGM is part of a larger company called ROAR Digital, which owns both MGM Resorts International and GVC Holdings, a gaming entity out of Britain.

Does BetMGM offer live betting?

Yes, users can live bet most sporting events both on the BetMGM website or in its app.

Does BetMGM allow users to cancel bets?

No, but BetMGM offers the option to cash out before the game’s conclusion or edit your bet during the action.

Does BetMGM help users limit their risk?

Yes, BetMGM allows you to set limits on deposit, spend, session and time spent on the app on your account. Check out their Responsible Gaming page for more information. If you or someone you know has a gambling problem and wants help, call 1-800-Gambler.
