Promos offered by BetMGM Sportsbook Maryland

BetMGM Sportsbook offers some of the best promotions on the market and all of them are available to Maryland bettors.

It’s important to note that BetMGM requires all of their players to opt-in for each promotion. By heading to the promotions page on the app or website, you’ll be able to opt-in to any of the promotions they have on hand. If there’s a gold “Active” button in the top-right corner of the website, that means you’ve opted-in.

Here are the most common promos offered to MD players.

  • Welcome Bonus: BetMGM’s welcome bonus is pretty straightforward. First, make a deposit of at least $10 and use it on any bet of your choosing. If the bet wins, you’ll collect your winnings and the bonus is over. However, if the bet loses, you’ll be refunded the amount you wagered in bonus bets of up to $1,000. The bonus bets you receive must be used within seven days of receiving them; otherwise, they’ll expire.
  • Refund Promos: This offer allows you to earn refunded bets (in the form of bonus bets) if one leg of your parlay loses. So, if one leg of your five-leg parlay misses, you’ll be refunded the wagered amount in bonus bets. BetMGM will also occasionally hand out bonus bets if the team you bet on ends up losing in overtime or on a walk-off or buzzer-beater.
  • Parlay Booster Tokens: More often than not, BetMGM will only offer this promo for specific sports or events. Sometimes, however, users can apply booster tokens to any parlay of their choosing. Once the parlay is built, or you’ve chosen a pre-made one, simply apply a booster token to it and it’ll boost the odds by 10 percent. The parlay must be at least three legs in length to be eligible for booster tokens.

BetMGM has one of the largest selections of sports to bet on in the sports betting industry. With 21 sports to choose from, there truly is something for every bettor with BetMGM.

Here are the top options available in Maryland.

  • Football: Football has been - and probably always will be - the king of the sports betting world. BetMGM became the first official gaming partner of the Baltimore Ravens when they opened up shop in Maryland. During the NFL season, they’ll typically run NFL betting promotions for Ravens fans to get in on.
  • Baseball: In Maryland, the Baltimore Orioles reign supreme as the MLB’s lone team in the state. Although they haven’t won a World Series title since the 80’s, they’ve been trending back toward championship contention in recent years.
  • Basketball: Although Maryland does not have an NBA team, there’s still a dedicated Washington Wizards following in the state. From 1963-’73, the franchise played in Baltimore as the “Baltimore Bullets.”
  • Hockey: Like the NBA, Maryland does not have an NHL team. However, the Washington Capitals - who also happen to play their home games in the same arena as the Wizards - have always had a strong following in the state.

Does BetMGM have a retail location in Maryland?

Our expert opinion on BetMGM Sportsbook Maryland

BetMGM has been an industry titan ever since sports betting became popular and their Maryland sports betting site checks off all the boxes. From their strong welcome bonus to their unmatched variety of sports to bet on, BetMGM satisfies beginners and betting veterans alike.

Their refund promotions and parlay booster tokens, in particular, really stand out. From a bettor’s perspective, there’s nothing worse than losing a parlay just because one of the legs failed to win. When the BetMGM promo is running, it eliminates that concern by refunding your wager in the form of bonus bets.

The parlay booster tokens also add a welcomed wrinkle to the parlay format, giving users an opportunity to win big even if the standard odds aren’t very high.

All in all, there isn’t much to complain about here. Their mobile app can be a bit glitchy at times, but more often than not, that varies from user-to-user. Having to manually opt in for every promotion can also be a bit of a hassle. Nevertheless, given the quality of the promos at your disposal, it’s well worth the extra step.

BetMGM Maryland, from top to bottom, absolutely lives up to expectations.
