Overview

With a history dating back to the 1920s, BetMGM Casino brings that tradition and savvy to the growing Pennsylvania marketplace, allowing Quaker State players to enjoy what their neighbors in New Jersey have since 2017.

On first glance, it’s easy to notice a large game library, but let’s look beyond that and see what this online casino has to offer.

Pros and Cons

Welcome Offer

BetMGM PA has a two-part welcome offer. For part one, simply for creating an account, you will get a $25 Freeplay. In order to withdraw this, players must obtain a 1x playthrough. Meaning, players must wager $25 in order to have access to the $25 Freeplay.

For the second part of the welcome offer, players will receive a 100 percent deposit match up to $100. Again, there is a playthrough requirement, but this is 15x. This requires a minimum deposit of $10.

Other than the welcome offer, there are other promotional offerings, but they change consistently.

Mobile Usability

The mobile app is very similar to the desktop version of the platform. Everything is smaller to fit the size of the phone screen, but everything else is in the exact same order, minus the top menu on desktop. Instead, you will find this at the bottom of the app where there is the collapsible drop-down menu, a search option, poker, and promotions. Also, there appears to be a lot of the same games offered on mobile that are on desktop.

Customer Support and Security

Under the Help & Contact section, you will find an FAQ section. Here, you can review the FAQ section and if you need more help, there are other options offered such as live chat, email and phone call support. While on the surface this all sounds good, there are a few flaws here and there.

For example, you need to be logged in to review some important bits of information including deposit and withdrawal methods. There’s also been reports of the agents needing more training for not knowing the product better. We personally experience that, but it’s worth noting.

Responsible Gambling

Under the Help & Contact section, at the very bottom, there are some Responsible Gaming prompts including the following:

  • How can I close my account or take a time-out?: Here, BetMGM PA walks you through how to cancel your account of set up self-exclusion.
  • How do I know if I have a gambling problem?: Here there is a link to a questionnaire that you can take to determine this.
  • What help and support is available to me?: Here, BetMGM PA gives contact information for the in-state help for compulsive gambling and also the national hotline.

In Summary

Overall, BetMGM PA is one of the best platforms out there. There are some minor concerns, but they are just that—minor. The game library is great, the interface is spectacular and the similarities between desktop and mobile create an environment of playing that will be easy to do no matter what you choose to play on, as long as you are located within the borders of Pennsylvania. We highly recommend checking out BetMGM PA!
