How To Get Your $1,000 Risk-Free Bet From BetMGM NY
The registration process to receive your $1,000 risk-free wager from BetMGM New York is simple. That’s the case whether you’re signing up via an app downloaded to your mobile device, or by accessing the site via a web browser from a desktop or laptop computer.
If you want to be able to bet from your phone or tablet, the first step is to download the app. If you’re using an Apple device, you’ll find the BetMGM app at the App Store. If you have an Android device, the app is found at the Play Store.
Upon accessing the site, you must provide the following information:

Additionally, you’ll be asked to answer several security questions. These steps are to ensure BetMGM has the true identity of the registrant. It also helps ensure that no one else can access your account and wager with your funds.
You’ll also be given the opportunity to add funds to your account, which can be done via credit or debit card, or by tying the BetMGM account to a bank or PayPal account. This is also when you enter the Bonus Code: SHARP
After that, deposit at least $10 in your account and make your first bet. Up to $1,000 is protected risk-free by BetMGM.
About BetMGM New York Sportsbook
BetMGM is the fifth mobile sports betting platform to launch in New York. DraftKings, FanDuel, Caesars, and Bet Rivers went live on Jan. 8, and BetMGM joined them after completing the statutory and regulatory process set by the New York State Gaming Commission. Four other platforms – Bally Bet, PointsBet, Resorts World, and WynnBet – will launch on a rolling basis upon approval.
Looking to stand out from its competitors, BetMGM has partnered with MSG Sports and MSG Entertainment. The deals give BetMGM signage at Madison Square Garden, home of the Knicks and Rangers. BetMGM also has a relationship with MSG Network, which broadcasts the Knicks and Islanders in addition to the New York Islanders, and New Jersey Devils.
