BetMGM Sportsbook Review & Promo Code

BetMGM Sportsbook is currently offering a Risk-Free First Bet up to $1,000 promotion to new users.

About BetMGM Sportsbook

The Borgata-powered BetMGM Sportsbook marked the official completion of the company’s betting triumvirate, along with its companion casino and online poker offerings. And while the competition for sports betting dollars within the state is fierce, the MGM and Borgata brand carry with them an irresistible cachet that bettors loyal to the company happily honor.

Borgata Hotel and Casino began operations in 2003, and quickly expanded to the point where a second tower hotel was built just five years later. MGM Mirage was part of a joint venture that resulted in the construction of the casino. It was forced to shop its 50 percent ownership in Borgata in 2010 when MGM Macau part-owner Pansy Ho was banned from all gaming operations within the state of New Jersey.

Four years later, MGM was allowed back into the state’s gaming industry and took over the sole operation of the property in 2016. BetMGM was one of the first online sportsbooks in operation within the state. As for the online sportsbook offering, BetMGM offers some of the most competitive, user-friendly promotions in the industry.

  • Moneylines: Moneyline betting is when you pick the winner of the game or event.
  • Halves: Halves let a bettor treat the first half and the second half as separate matches.
  • Totals: A total, also known as an over/under, is a bet on the number of points both teams will combine to score in a game.
  • Futures: Future bets are bets on an event that will be decided in the future (e.g., end-of-season results).
