As sports betting continues to take shape in Arizona, an online sportsbook for bettors to get acquainted with is BetMGM.
BetMGM helps you get off to a solid start by refunding your first wager, if it ends up losing, for up to $1,000, and after that you’ll find a variety of promotions to increase your potential winnings.
This page has the key details about BetMGM in Arizona, including what you can expect from the bonuses and how they work, along with some pros and cons to using the sportsbook. We’ll also cover how to sign up, make withdrawals and deposits and how to bet on sports for those new to sports betting.
Thanks to its partnership with Gila River Hotels & Casinos and the Arizona Cardinals, BetMGM Sportsbook Arizona launched Sept. 9, 2021. That date also happened to be the start of the NFL season when the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers took on the Dallas Cowboys.
It’s actually quite impressive that sports betting is launching just a few months after it was officially legalized by the Arizona Department of Gaming. While the Department of Gaming was in charge of setting forth all the regulations and rules in the state, we wanted to make sure you were aware of three specific ones.
New BetMGM Sportsbook users in Arizona will get their first wager refunded (in free bets) if it loses, up to a maximum of $1,000. To claim this bonus, all you have to do is enter the BetMGM Arizona bonus code PLAYBONUS when you make your first deposit.

BetMGM AZ’s risk-free bet is one of the simplest sportsbook welcome offers to understand and use. Here is a rundown:
BetMGM’s welcome bonus is among the top offers we have seen at any Arizona sportsbook.
First, there are no odds restrictions for either your initial wager or for your free bets. Second, it’s great that bets for $50 and above receive five free bets as opposed to just one. You still can place all your free bets on one wager if you want, but it gives you the freedom to spread them out, too.
Yes, BetMGM is a legitimate online sportsbook. It operates under a sports betting license from the Arizona Department of Gaminge. BetMGM already has online sportsbooks in 10 other states across the US and will be launching elsewhere in the near future, as well.
Locally, BetMGM is partnered with Gila River Hotels & Casinos. It also has a partnership with the Arizona Cardinals.
There are a few rules to be aware of in order to legally gamble on sports in AZ.
The BetMGM Sportsbook app allows for easy betting on your smartphone and/or tablet. It is available for Android and iOS devices.
To download the app, follow our links to the BetMGM homepage while on your iPhone, iPad or Android phone/tablet. From there just follow the links to download the correct app for your device.
The easiest way to get started is to follow the BetMGM link from this page to the sportsbook’s website, where you can register. You also can open the BetMGM app and select “Register.” Then you’ll need to enter the following personal details:
Once you have filled out the application form and checked a few boxes to verify your age and certify that all your info is correct, your account will be good to go.
When you open the app or website, you will see most of the available promotions on a rotating banner near the top of the screen. You can click on an individual offer to learn more about how it works and to opt in.
To see all of the available promotions, though, you need to click the “Promotions” header at the very top. Once again, you can select each offer individually to read all the pertinent details and to opt in. If you fail to opt in to a promotion, you will not receive any of the bonuses or benefits associated with it.
Here are some examples of the types of promotions you will find:
Deciding which sportsbook or sportsbooks you’re going to do business with can be tricky, given all your options. Here are some of BetMGM’s strong points to consider.
As an additional consideration, here are some of the areas where we found BetMGM somewhat disappointing.
BetMGM AZ sports betting offers all the usual sports bets like moneylines, point spreads and over/under wagers, along with props, futures bets, live betting and more. Here is how game listings appear on the BetMGM app, followed by an explanation of how various common bets work.
|Seattle Seahawks||+3.5(-110)||Over 47(-110)||+165|
|Arizona Cardinals||-3.5(-110)||Under 47(-110)||-200|
Odds and lines will shift rapidly. Depending on the game, you might be able to place just spread, total and moneyline wagers, but you also will find games where you can bet on what will happen on the next play.
Bet MGM Sportsbook also offers a selection of prop bets for most games. Props are wagers that aren’t tied directly to the final score. Here are some examples of popular NFL prop bets:
Prop betting markets continue to grow in size and popularity, and BetMGM offers a variety of options.
Yes, at BetMGM you can wager on the Diamondbacks and all 29 other Major League Baseball teams. You are able to place all manner of wagers from the section above, but baseball also has a lot of distinct bets to consider:
If you’re a fan of any of our other local teams (Phoenix Suns, Arizona Coyotes, Phoenix Mercury, Arizona State Sun Devils, Arizona Wildcats) you can bet on them as well at BetMGM. The one exception is that Arizona law forbids college prop bets.
Your banking options are pretty extensive at BetMGM. While there are nearly twice as many deposit choices as there are for withdrawals, the options are still more than sufficient in our opinion.
|Deposit Method||Minimum Amount||Processing Time|
|Online bank transfers||$10||Instant|
|Visa, Mastercard, Discover credit|
and debit cards
|Bank wire transfer||$50||Instant|
|Play+ prepaid card||$10||Instant|
|PayNearMe||$10||Up to 48 Hours|
|Withdrawal Method||Minimum Amount||Processing Time|
|Online bank transfers||$10||Up to 5 days|
|ACH (e-check)||$500||Up to 5 days|
|PayPal||$10||Up to 5 days|
|Play+ prepaid card||$10||Up to 5 days|
Note that you can only withdraw funds using a method that you have used to make a deposit in the past 180 days. Additionally, while the official processing time is up to five days, it will be much quicker than that the majority of the time.
BetMGM’s help desk is available 24 hours a day if you do happen to experience any issues. We suggest starting with the FAQ, available under the account menu and then support. If that doesn’t help, you have the option of starting a live chat, sending an email through your BetMGM account or visiting the help pages.
The live chat option is a good choice if you have some free time to talk with a BetMGM representative. If you don’t have time, the email option usually works quite well, too. Lastly, if you choose the phone option, a help desk agent will call you back ASAP.
Under the gambling limits tab at BetMGM, you can control how much money you can deposit, how much you can lose in a set period of time and/or how much time you can be on the app and website. Under the self-exclusion tab, you can elect to exclude yourself from real-money wagering and depositing, though you still can make withdrawals.
If you think you or someone you know could have a gambling problem, resources are available on this Arizona responsible gambling page.
Not as of yet, but if BetMGM does open a retail sportsbook in Arizona, you would be able to bet in person at that location. You would be able to fund your account and cash out your winnings from that location, as well.
BetMGM is a great sportsbook, but there are some areas where it’s better and worse than some of its top competitors in Arizona. Here’s how it stacks up against WynnBET, DraftKings, FanDuel and PointsBet.
