BetMGM is one of the most popular Arizona sportsbooks and was the third to pass the $1B sports betting handle threshold in the state behind DraftKings and FanDuel. A powerhouse alternative to the daily fantasy sports giants, BetMGM Sportsbook is surging in popularity throughout the state thanks to a partnership with the Arizona Cardinals.

In this BetMGM Sportsbook review, we’ll take a look at what factors have led to the operator’s strong Arizona presence, walk through how to get started with the bookmaker, and provide an overall rating of the bookie.

Yes, BetMGM Sportsbook is legal in Arizona. The state legalized online sports betting in April 2021, and BetMGM was among the first operators to obtain a license and launch in the state. BetMGM first accepted wagers from Arizona players in September 2021.

BetMGM Sportsbook AZ has loads of daily, weekly, and monthly promotions that will rotate throughout the sports calendar. Here are some of the most popular bonuses you’ll see.

  • Matched deposit bonuses: Matched deposit bonuses award bet credit to your account, usually at a 100% match (though sometimes more). This is typically applied as a welcome bonus (more on that later) and allows players a chance to add those credits to their bet slip for a shot at a bigger payout.
  • Bonus bets: A variation on bet credits, bonus bets are applied at a predetermined amount, most commonly in $10 or $25 increments. They cannot be withdrawn for cash, but they can be played either in tandem with a wager you’re putting money on or as their own stake. Most of the time, their cost is not included in your winning payout.
  • Daily & weekly profit boosts: Daily and weekly profit boosts involve complementing your winnings by calculating a percentage of your betting profits and adding that total to your payouts. You may be limited by bet type for boost eligibility so be sure to read the terms and conditions carefully.
  • Welcome bonuses: When you’re first registering with BetMGM, there will always be some sort of welcome bonus or “sign-up bonus” (those terms are interchangeable). The active offer involves receiving $1,000 in bet credit if your first bet doesn’t win.

BetMGM’s betting app in Arizona

BetMGM’s betting app holds high ratings in both the Apple and Google Play stores, carrying a 4.8/5 star rating for iOS devices and a 3.8/5 star rating among Android users. While the difference between the two stores is considerable, we should also point out that both Arizona betting apps have surpassed the million download threshold. Additionally, the iOS version was released in 2019 while the Android version wasn’t launched until 2021.

Arizona does not have publicly available data for sportsbook app downloads, but based on the revenue and handle, we can say BetMGM is likely in the top three for AZ downloads and users. Additionally, you do not need to download a new app to place a bet when traveling out of state, as long as BetMGM is licensed in that state.

  1. Log into the App Store on your Apple device.
  2. Search for “BetMGM Sportsbook.”
  3. Press “Get,” then “Install” and wait for the download to complete.

Top Arizona teams you can bet on with BetMGM

Screenshot of BetMGM Arizona Sport section

Arizona is one of 13 regional markets in the U.S. to hold a team in each of the “Big Four” leagues, and their WNBA team has more championships than each of the men’s programs. Here are the top in-state options you can find on BetMGM.

  • Phoenix Mercury: The Mercury were one of the WNBA’s founding teams. They boast the league’s all-time leading scorer Diana Taurasi and have won three championships. In 2014, the team set a WNBA record for most wins in a season with a 29-5 regular season record and swept the Chicago Sky in the Finals to take the title.
  • Arizona Coyotes: Previously the Winnipeg Jets, the franchise relocated to the desert in 1996. The team has played in Tempe, Phoenix, and Glendale but has struggled to find a true “home” stadium. It will be at least until the 2024-25 season before they have a new arena deal in place, so they’ll be playing home games at Mullett Arena on the Arizona State University campus for the foreseeable future.
  • Phoenix Suns: The Phoenix Suns are one of the NBA’s best teams…in the regular season. They have the fifth-highest all-time win percentage but have yet to capture the elusive championship, going 0-3 in the Finals.
  • Arizona Cardinals: Despite being the NFL’s longest continually-run franchise, the Cardinals have yet to win a Super Bowl. Their championships came before the team had moved to Arizona, and their lone Super Bowl appearance in 2009 saw the Cards lose after the Pittsburgh Steelers scored a go-ahead touchdown with 35 seconds left.
  • Arizona Diamondbacks: The Diamondbacks won the 2001 World Series in dramatic fashion, ending the New York Yankees’ hopes of four consecutive titles. Arizona rallied in the bottom of the ninth to win on a walk-off hit from Luis Gonzalez in one of the most iconic moments in MLB history.

Beyond the FAQ pages available on the website and in the app, you can email support through the portal, utilize the 24/7 chat service, or email support.az@betmgm.com.

Our expert opinion of BetMGM Sportsbook

In our expert opinion, BetMGM Sportsbook is a reliable operator with an excellent sports betting operation. Whether you’re a new player or a seasoned gambling vet, we can confidently say you’ll enjoy your BetMGM experience.

We particularly enjoy the MGM Rewards program, which offers players points for every dollar wagered at the sportsbook. Those points can then be redeemed for betting perks, hotel stays, restaurant discounts, and much more.

If we were to find a gripe with BetMGM, it would be the app’s performance on Android devices. While it is mostly reliable, there have been some reported issues with the geolocation feature which prevents users from placing their wagers.

Variety & features
Customer support

Betting AZ has given BetMGM Sportsbook Arizona an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5. This rating is based on the following criteria:

  • Welcome bonus - Rating 4/5: The welcome bonus offers players up to $1,000 in bet credit if their first bet loses. While this is quite a high amount, it requires a full $1,000 (or more) first bet to qualify for the maximum bet credit.
  • Payment options - Rating 5/5: BetMGM has one of the widest selections of payment options among Arizona sportsbooks. Payouts are handled quickly and deposits are instantaneous.
  • Sportsbook app - Rating 4/5: Android users reported geolocation issues. There were occasional performance issues and bugs, but the app has regular updates across devices (roughly every 2-3 months).
  • Variety & features - Rating 5/5: BetMGM has 16 sports betting markets with loads of leagues in those categories. The loyalty program is a must and one of the best features of the sportsbook. The app also has live streaming of both tennis events and European soccer.
  • Customer Support - Rating 4/5: The 24/7 chat feature will likely solve issues quickly but can also direct you to a real person if needed. This score would be a 5 if a phone support option was added.
