BetMGM Sportsbook fell just short of becoming one of the first sportsbooks to launch in Vermont when online sports betting went live in January 2024. Despite being one of five companies to apply for a gambling operator’s license in the state, issues with BetMGM's revenue sharing model prevented its top-of-the-line betting platform to the Green Mountain State.

In this review, we’ll detail how to get started with BetMGM once it is given permission to launch in VT, as well as the features and traits that set the bookie apart from others in the budding Vermont market.

No, BetMGM Sportsbook is not legal in Vermont. BetMGM was one of five bookmakers to apply for a VT sports betting license during the August 2023 review period, but concerns over the revenue sharing model led to the Vermont Department of Liquor and Lottery rejecting the application ahead of the online sports betting launch in January 2024.

The other bookmakers that applied for a license are DraftKings, ESPN Bet (PENN Entertainment), Fanatics, and FanDuel. ESPN Bet is also awaiting approval while DraftKings, Fanatics, and FanDuel have all launched already.

How do I join BetMGM in Vermont and claim the promo?

Should BetMGM get a license in Vermont and begin accepting wagers, the process of joining the site and claiming the promo is simple and won’t take you more than about five minutes to complete. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

  1. Access the registration page: Once online sports betting launches in Vermont, we will update this page and site with links to BetMGM’s registration page as well as list any promo codes that may be needed to access the welcome bonus.
  2. Create a new account: On the registration page, enter your email address. Then on the next screen, enter a password you would like to use containing at least one uppercase letter, lowercase letter, number, and special character.
  3. Enter your personal information: Next, you’ll need to provide your legal first and last name, birth date, and street address as they appear on your government-issued ID. You’ll also need to enter your cell phone number and the last four digits of your Social Security number. This information will be used to verify your identity and betting eligibility in Vermont.
  4. Agree to the terms: After that, you’ll need to check the boxes to agree to the terms of use and that the information you submitted is correct. Once you’ve done so, click “Submit” to complete the registration.
  5. Make a real-money deposit: Finally, you’ll need to make a deposit into your BetMGM account so you can place your first wager. BetMGM’s active offer is up to $1,500 as second-chance bonus bets, so you will need to deposit and wager at least that amount to take the fullest advantage of the bonus.

General terms and conditions for potential BetMGM welcome bonuses

Extrapolating from what we’ve seen in other states, we can expect the following general terms and conditions for welcome bonuses to apply for BetMGM in Vermont.

  • Welcome bonuses are only available to new players who are at least 21 years old and physically located in Vermont.
  • Bonus bets are non-transferable and have no cash value.
  • No second-chance bonus bets will be awarded if the qualifying wager settles as a win.
  • No promo code is needed for the offer.
  • Bonus bets are paid out in five installments at 20% of the value of the original wager (for example, a $500 initial bet that settles as a loss would result in a disbursement of five $100 bonus bets).
  • Bonus bets cannot be broken up into smaller denominations once awarded and will expire after seven days if not wagered.
  • Promo credits will be awarded within 24 hours of the qualifying wager settling as a loss.

What can I do if the BetMGM Vermont promo doesn’t work?

If the BetMGM Vermont promo doesn’t work, the easiest thing you can do is log out of your account, close the app or web browser where you’re using the platform, and restart your device. Most of the time, this is enough to fix the issue because it allows the server to clear any cached images and get the bonus to show up.

However, if those steps don’t work, and you are certain that you complied with the terms correctly, you’ll need to get in touch with BetMGM’s customer service team. Instructions on how to do so are listed later in this piece.

Why does BetMGM online sportsbook VT offer a welcome bonus?

BetMGM will offer a welcome bonus to make its platform more appealing to new bettors than other Vermont online sportsbooks. Betting operators are constantly shifting their welcome bonus offers, competing with each other to set up the most enticing deals for new players, as this is often the biggest factor for new sportsbook users when deciding where to register. More lucrative offers tend to generate more signups, and BetMGM’s massive $1,500 second-chance bet offer is currently the largest of any sportsbook.

When will BetMGM launch its promo in VT?

BetMGM will launch its promo in VT after it is granted a sports betting operator's license in the state and before it goes live in Vermont. The goal is to allow bettors to take advantage of the promo offer as soon as possible, which can include a pre-registration to allow the offer to take effect as soon as BetMGM can begin accepting wagers.

The BetMGM betting app in Vermont

When BetMGM’s Vermont betting app arrives, it will be one of the most highly-regarded options for bettors in the state. The app carries a 4.8/5 rating in the Apple App Store and a 4.3/5 rating in the Google Play Store.

In the reviews, Android users’ biggest pain point was the geolocation feature, which was preventing would-be bettors from placing their wagers. The iOS users did not cite this issue with anywhere near the same frequency. In most cases, installing all necessary software updates on your mobile device and downloading the latest version of the app will remedy these types of issues.

The app itself features the trademark black, gold, and white of the MGM brand, available in both standard and dark mode display options (personally, we prefer the look of dark mode). The main page has a scrolling carousel of lines with odds boosts and other promotions. You can easily access your favorite teams, players, and sports, and you can monitor your active bets.

How to download the BetMGM app on iOS

Downloading the BetMGM app on your iOS device will take just a moment, provided you’ve got a steady internet connection. Here’s how you can install it today.

  1. Open the App Store on your iOS device. Make sure you’re logged in or you’ll be prompted to enter your credentials later in the process.
  2. Search for “BetMGM Sportsbook.” The app is not state-specific for players outside of Nevada.
  3. Press “Get” then “Install.”

Once the download is complete, you’ll be able to create a new BetMGM account, make a real money deposit, and place your first bet. Otherwise, you can log in with existing BetMGM credentials.

How to download the BetMGM app on Android

To download the BetMGM app on your Android device, you’ll need to complete the following steps:

  1. Log into the Google Play Store on your Android device.
  2. Search for “BetMGM Sportsbook.” This app works for all players outside of Nevada, so you won’t need to download separate apps to play out of state.
  3. Press “Install” and let the download run.

After the app installation finishes, you can log in with the email address and password you created when registering for a BetMGM account or sign up for the first time if you haven’t already done so.

BetMGM VT probable deposit options

BetMGM has one of the more expansive lists of banking methods among gambling sites in Vermont (though there is some variance from state to state) and all are available without processing fees. Deposits are credited to your account automatically while withdrawal requests are almost always approved in five days or fewer.

Note that there is a $10 minimum for all deposit types and a $20 minimum for all withdrawals.

Here are some of the probable payment options for BetMGM VT.


  • Credit/debit card: Accepted at nearly every sports gambling platform, credit and debit cards are a quick and convenient way to finance your bankroll. However, BetMGM will not allow you to withdraw directly to either of these options.
  • PayPal: One of the oldest and most popular online payment processors, PayPal is accepted at more Vermont sports betting apps than any other e-wallet option. There are no fees involved when making a deposit
  • Wire transfer: Of the steps listed here, wire transfers take a bit longer to complete, though this is usually because they are used to move larger amounts of money and require additional verification to certify the transaction as legit.


  • Play+: A Play+ card functions as a cross between a gift card and an ATM card. You can reload the Play+ cards with funds from your bankroll that can only be offloaded at BetMGM (or other approved destinations) and you can withdraw your sportsbook winnings from the card at an ATM.
  • Check: Checks get somewhat of a bad rap because this is the withdrawal method that takes the longest for your funds to arrive as they are sent out via US Mail, meaning they could take anywhere from 3 to 15 days to arrive. However, they can carry higher maximum withdrawal amounts than other payment methods, so this method still holds some utility.

Customer support of BetMGM Sportsbook Vermont

BetMGM Sportsbook Vermont is likely to carry customer support options via FAQ pages on the website and in the app, by email, and through 24/7 support chat. Unfortunately, there is no phone number listed for customers who would prefer that option.

Additionally, you can try reaching out via Twitter with a direct message to @BetMGMSupport.

Could I claim a BetMGM promo if I already have an account in Vermont?
