BetMGM Sportsbook IL Review
After initially launching as playMGM, the gaming side of the famous entertainment brand of MGM was reinvented as BetMGM in 2019 to offer legal online casino entertainment in specific U.S. states including Illinois. As an extension of its betting entertainment, an online sportsbook has been added to the BetMGM site following a strategic partnership with Europe’s GVC Holdings to power that venture under the brand of Roar Digital . . . no doubt inspired by the iconic lion making some noise in MGM’s famous logo! So is this a king the online sportsbook jungle? A roaring success? It’s time to prowl around BetMGM’s gaming reserve.

Layout & Usability
The joint venture with GVC Holdings has given BetMGM Sportsbook IL the benefit of the former’s considerable experience in the field outside the U.S., informing the clean, functional layout of the site. There’s very sparing use of animation and promotional adverts to give priority to mainly text-driven listings of available markets to bet on, with thoughtful menus and other search tools to ease navigation.
It’s very much ‘on trend’ with the best online sportsbooks we’ve reviewed making it easy to use if you’re new to online sports betting or transitioning to bet here from another leading service. That ease of use is doubly welcome when dealing with the huge choice of markets BetMGM can offer, with all the expected categories of domestic and continental events amply covered with plenty of moneyline, in-play betting, point spreads and parlays to please all types of bettors.
Like the best online sportsbooks, BetMGM recognizes the essential need for native apps that perfectly mirror the main site to cater for mobile play. Both iOS and Android devices are covered, with the former found at Apple’s App Store and the latter available direct for download from the BetMGM site. And do they work well? You bet they do. No issues to report on this front.
Mobile & Tablet
BetMGM Illinois Sportsbook offers an iOS app and an Android app but it’s just as easy to play on your Smartphone’s browser.
Deposit Methods Include: Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Neteller, Skrill, ACH Payments, Trustly and Bank Transfer

BetMGM Sportsbook offers excellent 24/7 support, 7 days a week. BetMGM uses Web Email.
BetMGM has undoubtedly used its smarts to create an online sportsbook that is a very strong competitor to the established sportsbook brands outside the U.S. that are gunning for business here, such as William Hill and Bet365. The choice of markets and bet options is excellent, the ease of use exemplary and customer service was uniformly quick and efficient during our review. So, to answer our earlier question it certainly deserves to be a roaring success with U.S. bettors who are eligible to sign up here.
