BetMGM is one of the best online sports betting and casino websites in the US but you can also bet and play casino games on the BetMGM app. This app is currently available to members located in New Jersey but BetMGM plans to launch the app in other states as well, like Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Illinois.
How to Download the BetMGM App
Before we explain how you can download the BetMGM app, it is important to point out that BetMGM has three different apps dedicated to different products – a sportsbook app, a casino app and a poker app. But whatever type of app you want to download, the process is the same:
- If you have an Android device, you have to go to the BetMGM website and download the app. On the homepage, select either “Sports”, “Casino” or “Poker” tab and then go to the bottom of the page and click on Android. This will start the download process and when the app is downloaded you just have to install it.
- If you have an iOS device, you can repeat the same process but when you click on the iOS tab for the desired product, you will be directed to the App Store. You can also go to the App Store directly and search for the desired app.
Of course, you can access any app from one account.
Play on the BetMGM App
As we already mentioned, you have to download separate apps for different products. For example, if you download BetMGM casino, you can play a variety of slot games, video poker games and progressive jackpot games. But if you wish to play poker or place a bet, you have to download another app.
Play Poker on Mobile
Like all other BetMGM apps, the BetMGM Poker app is currently only available in New Jersey but it should be available soon in Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois and Kansas as well.
BetMGM Poker has a pleasant design, with a few different types of poker you can play. Of course, that includes Texas Hold’em and Omaha but there are a few other poker games you can try out.
The important thing about the poker app is functionality and BetMGM dully delivers. However, you need to make sure that you have a stable connection so you don’t miss a hand if your connection drops.
Sports Bet on Mobile
BetMGM Sportsbook app has a similar design as all other BetMGM apps and it is very intuitive and easy to navigate. Placing a bet is made into a simple process that requires only a few taps on the screen of your mobile device.
The sportsbook is extensive and you can find a wide variety of sports on the app. This mostly includes the most popular sports in the USA and the world but there are more than 15 sports on the app, so there are some more obscure ones as well like Aussie rules football or cricket.
However, only the most popular sports like soccer, tennis or basketball have a great selection of markets. Other sports usually come with a few different markets, while soccer matches come with over 50 different betting options.
Of course, live betting is available on the app and this section is easy to access to ensure that players can place the bet as quickly as possible during the live games.
Live Broadcast on Mobile
BetMGM has a live streaming service for certain matches and events. You are most likely to find live broadcasts for soccer and tennis, although some other sports occasionally become available for live streaming.
Live streaming on the BetMGM website is currently possible in New Jersey but when the website becomes available to people located in Michigan, Illinois, Kansas, Indiana and Pennsylvania, the live broadcasting service should be available for the start.
BetMGM Other Assets
BetMGM app has many other features that make it appealing, like the Quick Deposit option or a great notification system that lets you know what is going on with your bet. But perhaps our favorite feature is the Cash Out option.
Cash Out Feature
The Cash Out feature on the BetMGM Sportsbook app is a great way for players to get out of a losing bet before the entire amount wagered is lost. It can also be a good way to take advantage of a currently winning bet and cash out a smaller amount early.
Various Mobile Promotions
While BetMGM doesn’t actually offer any mobile-specific promotions, all the bonuses and promotions that you can get on the website are also available on the mobile app. This includes the Welcome Bonus, which is a risk-free first bet in the amount up to $500.
In addition to the BetMGM Welcome Bonus, which is reserved for new players, you can also find numerous promotions for active players, like weekly free bets, different types of insurance, like parlay insurance or overtime insurance, and many other promotions and bonuses.
All three BetMGM apps have certain advantages and a few flows. The first thing we don’t like is the fact that you have to download separate apps for casino, sportsbook and poker. While some players prefer their apps to be more focused and they may like this, we prefer to have all the things we need from a bookie/casino in one place.
Still, the BetMGM Sportsbook app is easy to use and functional all the way through. The speed of the app is satisfying, which can be important if you are trying to place a live bet on the app.
One big plus for the BetMGM app is the live streaming option. Not many operators in the USA have live streaming, especially for their mobile apps. If you like to bet live, then live streaming is one of the most important things to look for and this app doesn’t disappoint.
All in all, there are a few things BetMGM can work on but the apps are all pretty reliable and easy to use.
