Of all the new players in the sports betting scene in Colorado, BetMGM is one company that already has plenty of experience in the gambling world. With a number of world-class resorts to their name, they now take on the job of carving out an equally impressive reputation as an online sportsbook.

Once again, it’s time for Colorado-Betting.com to take a look at whether BetMGM delivers the goods. We’ll be considering everything from promotions to payment methods, and user experience to odds comparisons in this comprehensive breakdown.

BetMGM’s Promotions

BetMGM Promo

For new customers, there is one tasty offer up for grabs. Any new customer who signs up and deposits money into their account will receive up to $1,000 back in free bets, with the T&Cs stipulating that the bets will be available once the initial wager is settled. This offer is available up until 12/31/2022 and will be void if a player chooses to cash out their bet early.

For existing players, there are some decent offers too. The main offer available right now is for a chance to receive up to $25 if you place a One Game Parlay of at least four legs on any NBA game, and one of them loses. Once again, the T&Cs firmly state that the maximum number of legs allowed on the bet is 20, and this offer expires soon on 04/10/2022.

Whilst the new customer bet is the one that will grab the headlines, and rightly so with a $1,000 risk-free bet available, it’s really nice to see not just new customers getting bonuses, and being offered something as well. Especially one that rewards players for taking a bigger risk by not just betting on singles, but going for One Game Parlay bets too.

Sign Up Process

BetMGM Sign Up

There are multiple ways to register with BetMGM Colorado, more than most other providers.

  • Firstly, you can either select an email and create a password before entering all your personal details such as your date of birth and social security numbers. This is the lengthiest of all the processes.
  • For the second two options, you can register with PayPal or your Yahoo! Sports account. These last two methods automatically populate much of the information you are required to fill out using existing information in your other accounts. This saves you a bunch of time when trying to sign up.

User Experience

BetMGM on Desktop

BetMGM on the desktop display looks great, with its black and gold layout. Everything is laid out nicely, and easy to find as well. However, there was one major issue. Every few minutes, the page would switch to a “Service Connection Lost” screen. There is a “Retry” button on that page, which when clicked, would reload the page again. 

That said, the issue of persistent disconnection is a real, worrisome letdown. Also, there was an issue with desktop expanding menus as they wouldn’t show properly, and so you couldn’t see all options available.

BetMGM’s App

Fortunately, there were no such issues when downloading the official BetMGM app. We used the Android version available on the Google Play store, however, there is an iOS version of the app available on Apple’s App Store.

The layout was similar to that of the website, easy to navigate, and well laid out. It was extremely responsive, and placing wagers on your favorite sports is straightforward. Just a few taps here and there, and away you go, as long as you have funds in your account. If not, depositing is just as easy on the app too.

BetMGM Mobile

BetMGM on Mobile

The mobile layout of BetMGM CO was just as bad as the main site, which is not promising at all. Clearly, there’s a major, underlying issue here that needs to be resolved sooner rather than later. It’s massively inconvenient for users as you keep getting disconnected from the server and have to refresh all the time. 

Once again, despite being located in a different place, loading up the A-Z sports list was just impossible. It kept showing as a blank screen.

Withdrawals, Deposits, and Payment Methods

There are a number of payment methods available for both deposits and withdrawals at BetMGM. Here is all you need to know about depositing funds:

Payment MethodMin. DepositMax. DepositProcessing Time
VIP Preferred Check$10Depends on providerInstant
Debit/Credit Card$10Depends on providerInstant
PayNearMe$10Depends on providerInstant
Online Bank Transfer$0Depends on providerInstant
Discover Credit Card$10Depends on providerInstant
Online Banking$10Depends on providerInstant
MGM Rewards Card$10Depends on providerInstant
BetMGM Gift Card$10Depends on providerInstant
Apple Pay$10Depends on providerInstant

And here is everything you require for making a withdrawal, including how long each method will take:

Payment MethodMin. WithdrawalMax. WithdrawalProcessing Time
Visa Debit Card$10None3-5 days
PayPal$10None24 hours
VIP Preferred$10None3-7 days
Online Banking$10None1- days
Instant Banking$10None2 days
Play+ Prepaid Card$10None6 hours

Whilst a provider can limit your deposit amounts, you can also limit yourself too. So say you have a credit card that allows you to deposit $2,000, but you don’t want things to get out of control. You can set your own limit, either daily, weekly, or monthly. Preventing you from falling into the problem gambling trap.

It should also be noted, that whilst there is no limit on withdrawal amounts, amounts larger than $50,000 may take more time to withdraw.

Betting Options/Markets

BetMGM Markets

There are currently over 20 different markets available for BetMGM Colorado Sportsbook. You have all the main popular US sports such as MLB, NHL, NFL, and many more, plus some of their foreign counterparts such as being able to bet on Japanese Baseball and European Basketball. There are then some more global sports out there you can bet on such as Aussie Rules, MMA, and Tennis.

There are some decent options available on these bets too. You can not just place futures bets, but also bet in-play, and cash-out in-play too.

This means if you have a One Game Parlay on, for example, say for 10 legs, if half have come in, and you have half to go but there has been a big announcement of a star player getting injured that could affect the game, you can take an offer from BetMGM to cash out early for a lower fee.

Customer Service and Support at BetMGM Colorado

To get help or support, you’re first asked what kind of help you require. Depending on what that is, you will be pointed to several different contact methods. If it’s a general inquiry about something, you’ll be asked to email and get a response in up to 48 hours. 

If you’re reporting potential fraud, then there is support available to raise concerns 24/7. And finally, if you suggest that you have a problem with gambling, they will support you and signpost you to places that can help.

Odds Comparison

When it came to comparing odds, we took a look at the odds being given for the winner of the Valero Texas Open. Russell Knox was 10/1 to win, Luke List was 22/1 to win, and Matt Jones 40/1.

Whereas with Betway, Russell Knox was given 9/1 odds to win, Luke List was 20/1 and Matt Jones was 35/1, showing that BetMGM CO does offer some fantastic odds compared to their rivals.

Summary

Whilst the offers for newcomers and existing members show promise, their website and mobile site left something to be desired because you simply could not use them. They may well just be facing temporary difficulties, but as a prolific brand with an established presence, they could at least have put up a warning message temporarily, to let bettors know.

They do, however, redeem themselves with more payment methods than most, including a rare sighting of Apple Pay. Plus, they offer some fantastic odds to go with that. So, in conclusion, they have promised to be one of the best, but their website could use some real improvements.
