On the final page, you need to enter your home address and phone number. After that is when you will enter the code PLAYBONUS to receive a 100% deposit match.

BetMGM Sportsbook app
The BetMGM Sportsbook app is available on iOS and Android mobile devices. You can use it in both the upright and sideways position, and it is very similar in appearance and functionality to the BetMGM Sportsbook website.
Finding games or teams you are looking for on the BetMGM app is very easy. One way to do it is by selecting the sport you are looking for along the top of the page and scrolling from there. Even easier, though, you can click on the “Search” tab at the top and type in the team, sport or event you are after.
As you scroll through the BetMGM sports betting app, you will see games currently underway that you can bet on. And as you continue to scroll, you’ll come to contests that are getting underway shortly.
The bet slip at BetMGM PA is easy to get the hang of. As you add selections, a small icon will pop up showing how much you would win based on your default bet setting wager. Simply click on the bet slip icon, and you can place single wagers, parlays or round robins with ease.
Also, get familiar with the “My Account” tab. Here is where you can access the BetMGM cashier, which you obviously will need whenever you want to deposit or cash out at the Pennsylvania sportsbook. There also are tabs to view your M life Rewards status, to contact customer service and to log out of your BetMGM Sportsbook account.
The one area of the BetMGM app we would like to see tweaked a little would be the promotions page. Instead of having to make multiple selections in order to opt into a promo, it would be great to be able to do so right from the BetMGM promos page.
But that one criticism aside, the BetMGM app for iOS and Android is one of the better ones in the Keystone State.

After the file has been downloaded, click on the install button. Just like before, you may be asked if you trust the source of the app you are ready to install, and just like before you will select “Yes.”
And that is all there is to it. The whole process should not take more than a couple of minutes, max.

Advantages to betting at BetMGM
One of the best things about BetMGM Sportsbook PA is that it includes users in the M life Rewards loyalty program, which is associated with MGM Resorts. As part of M life Rewards, you get to enjoy all the perks of one of the top casino brands in the world and earn points for every sports bet you make. The more points you earn, the more rewards you receive, which you can redeem at the BetMGM online sportsbook or at MGM casino properties.
Another great perk of the BetMGM app is the Easy Parlay Builder, which was created thanks to a partnership between BetMGM and Betgenius. Never has creating parlays been as easy.
And finally, at BetMGM Sportsbook you will find an impressive offering of both sports and bet types. All the top sports and leagues are available on the BetMGM app, as well as some smaller sports, too. And when it comes to betting options, you will find all the regular bet types, as well as single-game parlay options that continue to grow in popularity.

The BetMGM website does not have any major differences from what you will see on the BetMGM app. Really, it is just bigger and thus has a few more features on both the left and right sides of the screen.
Down the left side of the screen, you will see listings for the most popular contests and sports to wager on at the present time.
On the right side of the page you’ll find the BetMGM parlay generator. Here you can create parlays just be clicking the “Spin selection” button. When you do so, a group of five selections will come up. You can keep or get rid of any of them, and then spin again until you’ve got a parlay you like.
The middle of the BetMGM website it filled with live games to bet on and upcoming events listed below those. Along the top of the website are links to the top sports and leagues, the BetMGM promotions page and the BetMGM search bar.
You can view your active and settled bets by clicking on “My Bets” at the top of the page. And you can get to your account by selecting the “My Account” icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
Sometimes features are not available on the website. When that happens, a box will pop up asking you to download the BetMGM Sportsbook app.

Of course you can partake in moneylines, spreads and over/unders. You also can make parlay, round robin and teaser bets.
The BetMGM app has tons of futures markets, too, allowing you to bet on title winners, regular season win totals and individual player award winners. That means you’re able to bet on which team will win the Stanley Cup or Super Bowl and who will be named league MVP in the major sports leagues.
And if all that wasn’t enough, BetMGM Sportsbook also has prop bets in abundance for all the top sports. That means you’ll be able to bet on props like whether Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Chase Claypool will score a touchdown or whether Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid will score a certain number of points in a game.
Suffice to say, you’ll have all the options you would expect from a top-notch sportsbook when it comes to BetMGM in Pennsylvania.
Online sportsbooks like BetMGM allow users the ability to bet on games that already have started thanks to live betting.
When it comes to live betting, also known as in game betting, you are able to bet on pretty much everything. You can place updated moneyline, spread and totals wagers. Depending on the event, you even will see wagers where you can bet on what will happen on the next possession or next play in a game.
Just be ready to make your bet, though, because lines can change rapidly when a player gets injured or there’s a game-changing play like a pick-six in football, for example.
