Someone once said, “Patience is a virtue, a wait won’t hurt you.”
But the wait for mobile sports betting via the BetMGM New York app is dragging on.
When Will The BetMGM NY App Launch
New York online sports betting debuted on Jan. 8 in time for the final week of the NFL regular season, though BetMGM did not launch on that day.
The NYSGC has approved four mobile sports betting platforms to “commence operations” at 9 a.m. on Jan. 8. The first four were DraftKings, Caesars, FanDuel, and BetRivers. The other five, including BetMGM, will be approved for launch on a rolling basis as they satisfy the statutory and regulatory requirements necessary to accept and process mobile sports wagering activity.
Industry experts are expecting New York to be one of the largest online sports betting markets in the United States. With nine mobile apps launching and a large population of dedicated sports fans, NY is set to explode.
Folks in New York can currently only place sports bets at a few retail sportsbook locations throughout Upstate New York, and only in person. If a New York resident wants to bet on sports now, he or she can also travel into New Jersey or another adjacent state where mobile sports betting is legal. Once the state goes live with mobile sports betting, it’s expected that those fans of sports betting will help fuel a tremendous flow of bets in New York.
BetMGM New York Promos
BetMGM New York has not announced a pre-launch bonus offer, but if it follows suit with what the sportsbook has done in other states, it will be favorable for New Yorkers. BetMGM’s bonus offers in Arizona and Louisiana were the same. New users received $200 in free bets to be used once mobile sports betting launched statewide.
Once a pre-launch offer is announced in New York, you can return to NY Sports Day and follow the steps to take advantage of it. At that time you should register with BetMGM New York and use the promo code to get your offer.
That’s not all new users can get. BetMGM typically offers new users a risk-free bet of up to $1,000 for their first bet.
