BetMGM is one of a few online sportsbooks that has been licensed to operate in New York. Legal sports betting has only recently been introduced to the state, which features some of the most popular franchises in the country.
Here’s what you need to know about betting with BetMGM in New York:
BetMGM New York Promo Code
BetMGM offers a risk-free bet up to $1,000 for your first wager. If the bet loses, you’ll be given a refund to be placed on future bets.
New York Sports Betting
There’s no shortage of New York teams to bet on with BetMGM. Eight teams across four professional sports represent the state.
Online sports betting comes to the Big Apple with the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets in the middle of the NBA season. You can bet on (or against) the NFL’s New York Giants and New York Jets, neither of which has achieved much success in recent years. The New York Yankees and New York Mets have high expectations for the MLB season. NHL bettors can wager on the New York Rangers and New York Islanders.
New York doesn’t allow you to bet on college teams within the state. That means wagering on football or basketball games involving the likes of Syracuse, St. Johns, Army or Buffalo is off limits.

Best BetMGM Promotions in New York
The BetMGM welcome bonus is only for new users, but there are several promotions that customers can take advantage of after making their first bet.
Money Monday Club
By opting into the Money Monday Club, you’ll get a free $10 bet for wagering at least $50 in qualifying bets for the previous week from Monday through Sunday. You have seven days to wager the $10, and it has to be used on a single bet.
A one-game parlay (commonly called a “single-game” or “same-game” parlay) is a bet that includes multiple wagers on the same event, all of which have to be correct in order for the parlay to be a winner. BetMGM’s promotion, however, allows your bet to be refunded up to $25 if only one of the picks in the parlay is wrong. The promo can be used for the NFL, NBA or EPL. The parlay has to include at least four legs, and the promotion is only good once per day.
$10 Free Live Bet
This promotion applies to NHL games on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Make a $50 live bet on a hockey game and you’ll get $10 to wager on a live bet for any sport. The $10 bet must be used within seven days of it being added to your account.
If you bet a parlay featuring between four and seven legs, this promo allows your profits to increase by up to 40%. A $100 bet on a five-leg parlay that would normally result in a $200 profit, for instance, would net a $280 profit with the Parlay Plus promo.
