Who is eligible for the bonus offer?

If you can legally place online sports bets in Ontario and are new to BetMGM Sportsbook, you are eligible for the risk-free first bet. That means being 19 or older and not having a previous BetMGM account. You’ll also need to be in Ontario to place your risk-free bet and any other wagers.

What kind of sportsbook promos will be available at BetMGM in Ontario?

Outside of the risk-free first bet, you can expect BetMGM to run a variety of promotions for betting on the most popular sports and teams in Ontario.

That could mean insurance on single-game parlays involving the Toronto Raptors and other NBA teams. You could receive your stake back in free bets up to $25 if all the legs are correct except for one for a parlay with at least four legs. It could also mean NHL overtime insurance, offering your stake back if you bet on the Toronto Maple Leafs or another NHL team, and that team loses in overtime.

BetMGM is also likely to run other promos in Ontario, including a $10 free bet every week for active players who make $50 in qualifying wagers the week before.

Does BetMGM offer a referral bonus?

BetMGM’s refer-a-friend program offers bonuses for referrals. Send any friend an invitation through email, social media, or text, and if that friend registers and meets the basic wagering requirements, you’ll both get a $50 bonus.

Your friend must make a deposit and bet at least $50 for you both to qualify. You can refer up to 20 friends through this promo.

BetMGM Canada FAQ

Is BetMGM legal in Canada?

BetMGM Sportsbook is in the process of acquiring a license to operate in Ontario. This likely will happen by the end of 2021 or early 2022. Additional provinces in Canada could follow.

Do I have to live in Ontario to bet at BetMGM?

Once BetMGM is legal in Ontario, you can bet there if you are 19 or older and located in the province, but you don’t have to actually live in Ontario.

Are there any BetMGM locations close to the border?

The BetMGM Sports Lounge is located inside the MGM Grand Detroit casino just a few minutes from the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel and the Michigan-Ontario border.

How does the BetMGM bonus compare to DraftKings?

DraftKings Sportsbook offers you a $50 free bet when you make your first deposit and a 20% match on that first deposit, up to a total of $1,000. BetMGM’s risk-free first bet up to $1,000, meanwhile, would appear to work out better in a couple of ways.

DraftKings’ $50 free bet comes with no strings attached, but it’s a smaller amount compared to a risk-free bet for up to $1,000. The deposit match bonus at DraftKings, meanwhile, requires a deposit of $5,000 to get the maximum from it. You also need to meet a 25x playthrough requirement to clear the DraftKings bonus funds for withdrawal.
