Once the Baltimore Ravens announced an official partnership with BetMGM, it seemed only a matter of time before the King of Sportsbooks set up shop in Maryland. Now, the industry heavyweight is rolling out a promo in advance of its inevitable launch. “BetMGM Maryland: Claim $200 Bonus” is an offer you should not pass up. No deposit is required.
Users must complete their BetMGM registration by noon on the day the betting app goes live in Maryland. The $200 in free bets will be awarded in four $50 increments. They cannot be redeemed in cash, and will not be included in any winnings. Additionally, they must be used within seven days of when they’re received by the customer.
BetMGM was one of 10 mobile sportsbooks that were qualified for license approval in late October. The Maryland Sports Wagering Application Review Commission is overseeing potential mobile licensees. BetMGM next must demonstrate controls and systems to the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Commission, which will ultimately issue licenses and give the green light to launch.
BetMGM Maryland: No Deposit $200 Bonus, Bet Ravens To Win Super Bowl
Users in Maryland who take the $200 free bet offer cannot use any other BetMGM introductory promos. (That is according to the terms set forth by the company.) But those users will find a top-of-the-line sports betting app with a polished interface. It also has great customer support, competitive odds and features such as odds boosts and live betting.
BetMGM Maryland offers one of the broadest selection of markets and odds in the industry. That is thanks in part to a legacy that stretches to the 1993 opening of its flagship MGM Grand resort on the Las Vegas Strip. And as an official sportsbook operator of the NFL, BetMGM features a wide array of NFL odds, such as +1200 on the Ravens to win the Super Bowl and +1600 on the NFL championship team to come from the state of Maryland. (The Washington Commanders of course play in Landover, Md.)
Bettors in Maryland aged 21 or over can simply download the BetMGM app from the iOS or Android stores and set up an account. Registration typically involves inputting personal information including birthdate, setting up a password, and confirming location. By law, bettors must be physically within the state of Maryland to wager over a mobile device.
Slow rollout of mobile launch in Maryland for BetMGM
BetMGM put down roots in Maryland in May of 2021. That is when the Ravens selected BetMGM as its first official gaming partner. As part of that multi-year agreement, the BetMGM app will feature promotions and marketing campaigns specific to the Ravens.
BetMGM features a wide array of NFL odds, such as +1200 on the Ravens to win the Super Bowl and +1600 on the NFL championship team to come from the state of Maryland (the Commanders also play in Maryland).
That agreement was announced one day after sports betting was signed into law by Gov. Larry Hogan. Although the launch of retail wagering in the state followed shortly thereafter, the rollout of mobile betting in the Old Line State has been hamstrung by a complex law with 89 pages of regulations.
Now, though, there’s a potential finish line. SWARC could announce a mobile launch date in its next scheduled meeting on Nov. 21. That finally would allow Ravens fans and other Maryland bettors to legally wager on the final weeks of the NFL regular season. It also would make the playoffs available though approved mobile betting apps.
