Other top bonuses on BetMGM Sportsbook Michigan

BetMGM regularly has generous Michigan sports betting promos for new and returning gamblers alike. Here are some of the other best bonuses on BetMGM Sportsbook Michigan.

  • Monday Night Football 50% SGP boost: BetMGM offers a 50% odds boost token for Monday Night Football same game parlays. Though you are capped to a $25 wager, because this bonus applies only to parlays, your odds will multiply for each leg you add, so this bonus could be extremely lucrative.
  • Multi-Sport parlay 33% boost: Similar to the MNF offer, BetMGM also has a promo for players to apply a 33% boost to multi-sport parlays on the platform. Your wager must carry odds of -200 or greater (-150 and +150 are ok, -250 is not) and once again, you’re capped with a $25 stake.
  • Touchdown in Vegas sweepstakes: Each week of the NFL regular season, BetMGM is giving a chance for football bettors to win an entry to the MGM Super Bowl Watch Party. The grand prize includes two tickets to the Big Game, $2,000 in travel expenses, and a three-night stay at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The more money you wager on the NFL, the more entries you’ll get into the sweepstakes drawing.

BetMGM Sportsbook is fully legal in Michigan. The MI online sportsbook was granted a license by the Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB), which is made up of five members and an executive director who are appointed by Michigan’s governor and affirmed by the state Senate.

The MGCB licensed BetMGM in 2020 and approved the operator for a January 2021 launch, and the bookie was one of nine platforms that went live in Michigan on January 22, 2021; this was the first day Michiganders were legally allowed to place an online sports bet.

BetMGM’s betting app in MI

One of the highest-rated betting apps in MI, BetMGM has a strong score across devices. Reviewers in the App Store gave the sportsbook a 4.8/5 score while Android users rated the app as a 4.4/5. Given that these reviews tend to skew to the negative because of the financial implications, the high ratings relative to competitors represent reliable performance on a quality product.

The app itself has the sleek signature MGM black-and-gold design, with fluid navigation and lightning-fast load times. As long as you’ve got a steady internet or data connection, you’ll likely find the app to be the superior way to place wagers with the platform.

How to download the BetMGM app on iOS

Getting the BetMGM app downloaded on your iOS device is simple, and the platform will likely become a gambling favorite. Here’s what you’ll need to install the app.

  1. Open the App Store on your iOS device and log in with your Apple ID and password.
  2. Search for “BetMGM Sportsbook.” You won’t have to browse long to find it, as the app isn’t tied to a specific state.
  3. Press “Get” then “Install.”

Once you’ve downloaded the app, you’ll be able to create a new BetMGM account, make a deposit, place your first wager, and claim the welcome bonus.

How to download the BetMGM app on Android

  1. Log into the Google Play Store on your Android device.

Different kinds of wagers on BetMGM Sportsbook

One of the best features of BetMGM Sportsbook is the variety of different kinds of wagers you can utilize when crafting your bet slip. Here are a few of the more popular options.

  • Spread bets: Particularly common for football betting but also popular for other sports, spread bets are wagers which handicap the score line by requiring the betting favorite to win and beat their opponent by a margin set by BetMGM. For example, if the Detroit Lions were 5.5-point favorites against the Chicago Bears, Detroit would have to beat the Bears by at least six points for a spread bet to win, which a bet on Chicago would hit if the Bears won outright or lost by five points or fewer.
  • Over/under bets: Also called “totals” wagers, over/under bets are those that don’t require you to pick an outright winner and instead focus on the combined point total of the participating teams. Using the example above, BetMGM may set a Bears-Lions over/under total at 42.5. For that wager, a bet on the “over” would mean the teams combine to score 43 points or more, while a bet on the under would signify you think the game total will be 42 points or fewer.
  • Prop bets: Short for “proposition bets,” prop bets are an entertaining way to make your wagers without having them tied to the final score. Prop bets could include wagers on which Detroit Tiger will hit a home run, whether the Red Wings will score in the first 10 minutes of the game, or whether the Pistons’ point guard will finish with over or under 24.5 points+assists+rebounds. Props can be player- or team-specific.

Major sports leagues you can gamble on using BetMGM MI

Michigan’s BetMGM platform features 16 different sports, and many of the top leagues are available in each of those categories. Here are some of the top major sports leagues you can gamble on using BetMGM MI.

  • NFL: The NFL is the top dog in every U.S. betting market, and Michigan is no exception. Whether it is a wager on a single game featuring the hometown Lions or a futures bet on the Super Bowl champions, nearly four in every five bettors will place an NFL wager in a calendar year.
  • NHL: Detroit has earned the nickname “Hockeytown,” as the home city for one of the league’s Original Six franchises. The Red Wings have won 11 Stanley Cups, the most of any U.S-based franchise in the league, and third in league history behind the Montreal Canadiens (24) and Toronto Maple Leafs (13).
  • NBA: After the NFL, the NBA sees the second-highest number of best and second-largest betting handle of North American leagues. Locally, the Detroit Pistons haven’t given bettors a ton of recent confidence, but with 2021 first overall pick Cade Cunningham to build around, the competition window is slowly starting to creak back open.

Our expert opinion on BetMGM Sportsbook Michigan

In our expert opinion, BetMGM Sportsbook Michigan is an exciting, entertaining platform with loads to offer beyond the books.

We particularly appreciate the rewards program, which is the gold standard for the sports betting industry. Every bet placed with the sportsbook will earn rewards points towards betting bonuses, hotel stays, entertainment tickets, and more!

To nitpick, we’d like to see quicker response times from the customer service team (though the expedited service available to rewards members is likely the solution there). Perhaps adding a couple more sports to the available list would be good, but there’s very little we can criticize here.
