The already-robust mobile sports betting market in New York will soon have an additional player, as BetMGM Sportsbook NY announced Friday its app will be available for bettors starting Monday, Jan. 17.
Receiving the necessary statutory and regulatory approvals from the New York State Gaming Commission, BetMGM NY is ready to join the party, in time for the meat of the NFL Playoffs and Super Bowl 2022.
The sportsbook operator is also well-positioned for the NBA and NHL through a sponsorship with Madison Square Garden and MSG’s Knicks and Rangers.
🗣️ THE KING IS COMING TO NY
We are thrilled to announce our launch in the Empire State on Monday, January 17th! 🗽

“With today’s monumental news, we’ll now be able to fully activate our relationships with MGM Resorts’ Empire City Casino and Madison Square Garden,” Adam Greenblatt, BetMGM CEO, said in Friday’s statement. “We look forward to offering customers in New York unique experiences that they can’t access on any other platform. A huge thank you to the New York Gaming Commission as well as to our entire BetMGM team who have worked tirelessly to bring this to fruition.”
BetMGM New York Bonus Offers
BetMGM NY will launch with a healthy offering of promotions designed to reward bettors. BetMGM is a major player in every sports betting market in which it’s active. This will also be the case in New York, where we expect BetMGM to offer a risk-free bet up to $1,000 by using the BetMGM bonus code “TODAY” upon registering.
DraftKings is offering a $50 free bet plus a $1,000 deposit match in New York. FanDuel offers a $100 credit when you register and a $1,000 risk-free bet. Caesars has been even more generous, with $300 just for signing up and a deposit match up to $3,000.

BetMGM NY Partners With Madison Square Garden, Knicks, Rangers
BetMGM New York was the first sportsbook to sign on as an official sponsor of Madison Square Garden, the Knicks and Rangers, and MSG Entertainment. The deal calls for BetMGM to have prominent signage during Knicks and Rangers home games, as well as a presence on MSG Network broadcasts.
Caesars NY is also a sponsor of MSG and its professional team tenants.
New York will be BetMGM’s 15th market for mobile sports betting joining Arizona, Colorado, Washington D.C., Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
BetMGM NY Launch Set For Monday
With four sportsbook apps already launched in the state, BetMGM NY is next in line, getting the greenlight from regulators to go live Monday.
That leaves four more platforms with provisional licenses working through the final steps of the approval process: Bally Bet, Points Bet, Resorts World, and WynnBet have also received conditional licenses and are completing the approval process.
Registering On BetMGM Is Quick And Easy
Once BetMGM New York launches Monday, use bonus code “TODAY” to get the current offer.
While BetMGM is available on your laptop or desktop computer, many prefer the convenience of betting via their mobile phone or tablet. In that case, the first step is downloading the app to your favorite device.
If you have an iOS operating system, go to the App Store, find the BetMGM app, and then download it. If you have an Android device, you can download the app from the Play Store.
Upon launching the app, the registration process will require your name, address, email address, and cell phone number. You’ll also set up several security questions and provide your Social Security Number. These precautions are to ensure no one else can access your account.
And be sure to enter BetMGM NY Bonus Code “TODAY” so you don’t miss out on the bonus offers.
You’ll also have the opportunity to link funds to your account, which can be done in a variety of ways – including a debit card or PayPal account. Some credit card companies allow you to deposit funds into a sportsbook account, others do not.
Once all the steps are completed, you’ll be able to bet on your favorite team, aside from any college teams from New York or on college games held in New York.
Still, with the NFL Playoffs here and the Super Bowl looming, the NBA and NHL the middle of their seasons, baseball right around the corner, major golf and soccer tournaments coming up, and lots more, there is no shortage of ways to enjoy mobile sports betting in New York.
