As such they have an excellent sports betting app that gets a 3.9 rating on the Google Play Store and a 4.8 rating at the Apple App Store that ranks it 18th overall in Maine sports betting apps and third in the sports betting space behind just DraftKings and FanDuel. It is intuitively organized and easy to use and features all that it on the BetMGM Sportsbook website with the advantage of portability.

Sports bettors will easily find live betting markets as well as the biggest ones pop up right on the home screen.

What iOS Users Are Saying

  • 🗣️ “.....BetMGM is now my preferred way to bet. I love that BetMGM lets you turn on alerts for any games so you can get score notifications during it. I also love the “edit my bet” feature which allows you to change your bet instead of having to cash out and replace it.”
  • 🗣️ “....So BetMGM made it very easy to start betting on the games I love the most and with some of the bonuses that they gave me I had the opportunity to bet on MLB without risk which was great cuz I always wanted to start trying betting on MLB games but never did it before so was weary (sic). Also with the MGM card you can earn points towards stays in their resorts and more which is great for when I want to go back home to visit family. So I definitely recommend BetMGM to anyone who loves sports betting in the sports book but doesn’t live in an area that has any.”
  • 🗣️ Bonuses and promotions are good with clear rules and obvious expiration dates, and are easy to apply on a wager. Synchronization with the broader MGM rewards program is seamless and easy to track. I have only one complaint but its a big one. The app allows you to wager if you live in (an ever increasing set of states) but it turns out that it allows wagering only when you are located in your home state. 

What Android Users Are Saying

  • 🗣️ “Awesome app. Good odds, I definitely recommend you give betting with MGM a shot!.....”
  • 🗣️ I was referred to BetMGM ……..and couldn't be happier. Simple and intuitive interface, and managed to get my bet in. Costumer (sic) service was great with my questions, and here we go!
  • 🗣️ “....When you can actually log in the interface is decent, though often a bit laggy such as when trying to make one-game parlays. Deposit/withdraw happens quickly though, and BetMGM runs decent promotions. I really like the scoring animations when checking on a bet for a game that isn't on TV”
