BetMGM launches updated sports betting app in time for NFL season

September 8, 2023

A $100,000 prize pool is up for grabs.

BetMGM has developed its sports betting app just in time for the 2023/24 NFL season, permitting bettors the opportunity to enter a free $100,000 ‘survivor pool,’ alongside providing enhanced widgets.

For fans traveling across multiple states this football season, they can access their BetMGM accounts in all approved markets excluding: Nevada, Canada, Puerto Rico and property-restricted apps through regional partners.

The free-to-play $100,000 ‘survivor pool’ jackpot is available for all BetMGM users to enter one time for free in the app. To be in a bid to win, you must choose one team to win each week, once a winning team is selected they cannot be picked the remainder of the season. The last customer(s) standing will take home the prize pool.

BetMGM is also introducing Same-Game Parlay+, which is a new way to combine two different same-game parlays into a single bet with ease for increased odds.

These in-game wagers must be placed within the respective states of the following teams: Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens, Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, New York Jets and Tennessee Titans.

The updated app will also bring back BetMGM’s celebrity ambassador Barry Sanders, who will ‘rule the virtual gridiron’ in a free-to-play game. Every week, the BetMGM customer will select an option for Sanders, if the punter chooses correctly they will be gifted: a parlay boost token, odds boost token, same-game parlay insurance token, bonus bets, and more.

BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt commented, "We developed our state-of-the-art sports betting platform to feature a variety of ways sports fans can engage. The next generation of the BetMGM app is a giant step forward in the sports betting experience, increasing the level of entertainment before, during and after games."
