Online sports betting will be fully legal and operational in the state of Arizona on September 9th, 2021. Numerous sportsbooks are looking to gain a foothold in the early days, including industry titan BetMGM.
Nevada-based MGM is offering new customers in Arizona a $1,000 risk-free bet upon their first deposit, among other bonuses.
The first step in claiming any of BetMGM’s offers is to create an account at the site, which you can do by following the steps outlined in the next section.

- enter their bonus code;

How to Deposit at BetMGM
In order to receive any of the signup offers or bonuses, customers will also need to make a deposit. Like most Arizona sports betting operations, BetMGM accepts credit cards, e-transfers (debit cards), PayPal, ACH, wire transfers, Skrill, and a few other methods.
Anyone in Arizona with cash or credit to their name should have no problem finding a suitable deposit method.
How to Use the Risk-Free Bet
BetMGM’s risk-free bet offer applies only to each new customer’s first cash wager. The most-important thing to remember when utilizing a risk-free bet is that you will only get the bonus funds if your wager is graded as a loss. If you’re wager is graded as a “push”, you will get your stake back, but you will have used up your risk-free bet with no positive return.
With that in mind, customers should not use the risk-free wager on any bet that could push, e.g. avoid point spreads and totals that end in a zero. As long as a spread or total is on a half, the wager can’t push (unless the game/match isn’t completed).
Signup Promos and Bonuses Cannot Be Combined
Unfortunately, if you have already signed up at BetMGM Arizona and opted into the prelaunch bonus offer – which grants $200 in free bets – you will not be eligible for the $1,000 risk-free bet, as well.
Download the BetMGM App
Anyone with a smartphone will be able to download the BetMGM mobile app and place real-money wagers from their device. The video below explains how to download and use the app.
If you don’t have a smartphone or are more comfortable on desktop, no problem. Everything offered on the app is also available on BetMGM’s desktop site, and vice versa.
