Registering at BetMGM

MGM is one of the biggest and most well-known names in America. You can find it on hotels, resorts and casinos in some of the biggest US cities. The company is always on the forefront of the entertainment industry, and this explains the quick progression and expansion of BetMGM.

Through its hotels and casinos, BetMGM automatically has access to licenses in 16 states. So far, BetMGM has opened its sportsbook in multiple states including Indiana, Michigan, Nevada and of course, in New Jersey. The company went live in New Jersey on September 9, 2019.

The sports betting at BetMGM is unsurprisingly combined with casino and poker sections that are also available after creating an account.  The sportsbook however is more than ordinary as it includes lots of different sports to bet on as well as up to date odds and lines for all events. 

1) Step One: Sportsbook Registration

To get started betting on BetMGM, you will need to create an account first. When you get to the site, you will see a ‘Register’ button in the top right corner of the screen. Clicking on that will get you started creating an account. 

(Signing up on the BetMGM Sportsbook can be completed from any US state, however to actually make bets you will need to be physically present in the state you are betting in)

Registering a BetMGM Account

Before beginning the registration, make sure you are at least 21 years of age and live a legal sports betting state. The second one is not as important, as you will still be able to create an account, however you will not be able to make a bet. 

Beyond those two things, you should carefully enter all information requested in the registration process as accurately as possible, with no mistakes. The information you enter will all be used to verify you as an eligible player in accordance with New Jersey and federal rules and regulations regarding sports betting. 

There are four sections included in the registration process:

  1. Personal information
  2. Account information
  3. Address
  4. Terms and conditions

After filling out these sections correctly BetMGM will verify your information and contact you with an approval. Once you are approved you can then deposit into your account and start playing. We will go through the key features of betting on BetMGM and the main points throughout the registration process.

2) Step Two: Complete Registration - BetMGM and New Jersey Terms and Conditions

There are three sections within the BetMGM registration process. The registration will be nearly identical between all states, although you may find subtle differences. As a whole the process is very straightforward, and should not last more than ten minutes. 

  • First Section - Personal Information (name, email address, date of birth)
  • Second Section - Account Verifiation (documents, last four of SSN)
  • Third Section - Location (Address, information on geolocation)

The first one is simple enough. You are agreeing that you are 21 years of age or older and that you will be the only person who accesses your account.

When you create an account you are in charge of making sure you are the only one who uses it. If you find that someone else has accessed your account, you should immediately reach out to the customer support at BetMGM.
