BetMGM Betting App Review

American gambling and hospitality giant MGM Resorts International has set out to compete in the digital space, and bring sports betting punters, as well as casino and poker players their legendary land-based gambling experience to the online and mobile gambling markets where regulated in America.

So using the New Jersey remote-gambling license of its Atlantic City land-based Borgata Casino and Hotel, MGM created the BetMGM brand, which certainly sets a new standard in the American remote gambling marketplace.

BetMGM seems to focus on its famous customer experience, and probably for that reason decided to separate the mobile apps for casino and poker, where casino players can access a huge variety of slots and table games, and poker players can take part of various poker tournaments and games.

So the good news being, that although separate, customers can access the sports betting, casino or poker apps using the same secure user account.

So whether a sports betting punter, casino or poker player, or all of the above – you can access all the apps using one account.  The balances are conveniently separated, so punters can easily do transfer between sports betting, casino and poker games.

The BetMGM sports betting App itself is very clean and slick, and we found that the white background alongside the subtle gold headers and menus (corresponding with the MGM Resorts branding) make things very clear and easy to navigate.

One of the best features we loved on the BetMGM sports betting app was the floating clouds on the app interface when opening it, which each cloud displaying popular and interesting events.  Punters can also access through the menu current and trending events and go on to place a bet.

Overall, the interface is really clean, straight forward and simple.  So users we spoke to find it a bit too dull and simplistic, but we actually liked the BetMGM sport betting app’s substance and usability, over style and bells and whistles.

Punters can also access casino games through the BetMGM app, but as said – this is intended to be a sports betting app, so the casino games are of a limited selection compared to the website and full casino app.

Sports Markets Available

The BetMGM sports betting app provides a very good selection of sports markets for punters to bet on, with the main selection of popular American sports and leagues: NBA for Basketball, NFL for Football, MLB for Baseball, NHL for Hockey and so on.

However international sports and leagues are also widely covered by the BetMGM sports betting app, with Rugby, Tennis, Australian Football, and of course Soccer (both the American MLS as well as other world soccer such as the English Premier League, Spanish La Liga and more).

Another great market that is offered by BetMGM for punters to bet on is Motor Sports, which makes things all the more exciting, and is not offered by most other competitors.

Bet Types

The BetMGM sports betting app provides a large array of bets for punters to select from, again more than the market standard. In-Play Betting, Points Spread, MoneyLine, Props, Future Bets and more.

The Daily Boosters are great, and make the BetMGM sports betting app one of the best propositions in the market, as it offers great odds and boosts on combinations of bets.

The cash-out feature is also one of our favorites, allowing punters to easily cash out of existing bets and maximize their profits and winnings (or cut their losses, if things don’t go their way).

Promotions and Rewards

Being set to capture market share, BetMGM offers some great first-deposit bonuses, as well as returning-customer bonuses where BetMGM will match player deposits, thus punters can get hundreds of dollars on top of their existing deposits if complying with the wagering requirements and other terms and conditions.

The BetMGM rewards are part of the M Rewards program, that provide comp points, which can later be converted to dollars spent on MGM shows, food, drinks and even rooms.

Final Thoughts:

The MGM Resorts International group had put a lot of thought, planning and resources into making their mobile presence debut, and they are certainly above the market standard right now.  If you are into sports betting on your phone – BetMGM is one great place to try!

We Liked:

  • Many sports markets and leagues to bet on.
  • The sports betting focused app – focus and ease of navigation.
  • Great daily boosters and cash-out features.

To Improve:

  • No browser-based sports betting (mobile app only).
  • Limited casino games/offers in betting app.
  • App somewhat simplistic and plain.
