Since its inception in 2017, BetMGM Sportsbook has ingrained themselves into the sports betting ecosystem, consistently proving to be one of the best operators in the industry. As of 2024, BetMGM is fully operational in 21 states. Texas has not yet legalized sports wagering, but they’re expected to do so by 2026 at the latest; 2025 at the earliest. Once Texas lifts the sports betting floodgates, BetMGM will presumably be one of the first to set up shop there.

In this BetMGM Texas review, we’ll take a look at what Texas users should expect from the betting product once it reaches the state, the welcome bonus we’re expecting for new players, and which betting markets could potentially see the most play.

No, BetMGM is not legal in Texas just yet. Online sports betting in Texas did not pass last year, which means residents will have to wait until 2025 at the earliest.

What promos will BetMGM Sportsbook offer in Texas?

BetMGM Sportsbook has not announced any of the promotions they’ll be offering Texas users. Nevertheless, we can assume their TX sportsbook sign-up bonus will be very similar, if not exactly the same, as the one offered in other states.

After successfully signing up for BetMGM, the operator’s welcome offer gives new users up to $1,000 in bonus bets if their first bet loses. All you’ll have to do is make a minimum deposit of at least $10 and use it to place a wager on any sporting event of your liking. For example, if you place a $50 wager on the Houston Texans to cover the spread but they fail to do so, you’ll receive $50 in bonus bets.

It’s important to keep in mind that this bonus bet doesn’t last forever. The bonus credit must be used within 30 days of issuance; otherwise, it will expire.

Common terms & conditions for BetMGM Sportsbook promotions

Once your account is created and you’re ready to start placing bets, one of the best ways to get started is by utilizing BetMGM’s welcome bonus. But before you go in guns blazing, it’s important to consider the numerous terms and conditions regarding the welcome offer, along with the other promotions that will potentially be offered.

Here’s a look at all the important terms and conditions to keep in mind:

  • Eligibility: With BetMGM, users do not need a promo code to take advantage of the welcome bonus. To make sure you’re locked in for BetMGM’s welcome bonus, all you need to do is make a minimum deposit of $10 and place a bet with it. If the bet loses, you’ll be refunded in the form of bonus bets of up to $1,000.
  • Expiration date: The funds collected from BetMGM’s welcome bonus must be used within 30 days, and any bets placed using the bonus winnings must be settled within that same time frame. Meaning, you won’t be able to place a futures bet in October on the Dallas Cowboys to win the Super Bowl because the bet won’t be settled until February.
  • Wagering requirements: As long as your first bet is at least $10, you’ll be opted-in to the welcome bonus. The first wager cannot surpass $1,000.
  • Minimum odds: There are no minimum odds requirements for BetMGM’s welcome bonus.
  • Payment methods: Sportsbooks will sometimes require their users to use a specific payment method in order to utilize their welcome bonus. This does not pertain to BetMGM; any payment method used to add funds to your account is eligible for the welcome offer.
  • Restrictions: Betting operators will, at times, limit which types of bets their promotions can be used for. With BetMGM, any bet type or sporting event is fair game; just as long as the bet settles within 30 days.
  • Bonus amount: Lastly, it’s always important to understand just how much BetMGM’s welcome bonus is worth. Users can receive up to $1,000 in bonus bets through the operator. If the first wager placed is $50 or more, the bonus bets will be split up into five sports betting bonuses equal to 20 percent of the wagered amount. For example, if you place a $1,000 first bet and it loses, you’ll receive five bonus bets of $200.

When will BetMGM Sportsbook launch their promo code in Texas?

At the time of writing, BetMGM has not specified a launch date for their Texas online sportsbook. As soon as sports betting becomes legal in TX, BetMGM will likely be one of the first operators to go live with their promo code based on their prominence in the sports betting world.

Sports you can bet on with BetMGM Sportsbook Texas

In states where BetMGM is operational, they give users 21 sports to choose from when placing wagers. Although the operator has not confirmed which markets will be available for TX users, we suspect the majority of the major sports will be available for Texas bettors.

Here’s where we expect most of the betting action in the state to take place.

  • Football: In the United States, football reigns supreme in the sports betting industry. We’re expecting more of the same in Texas once the state legalizes sports betting. Texas is home to two NFL teams, the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans. For college football, there are over 20 NCAA Division 1 schools within state borders, giving Texas bettors a wide range of teams to place wagers on.
  • Basketball: While football sits atop the sports betting totem pole, basketball has been gaining ground in recent years. Texas houses three NBA teams, the Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, and San Antonio Spurs. There are plenty of Division 1 college basketball schools located in the state as well.
  • Baseball: There are two MLB teams located in Texas, the Texas Rangers and Houston Astros. Both teams have seen varying degrees of success over the years, but the Astros have become the class of the American League in recent years, having won two World Series titles over the past six seasons.
  • Hockey: The NHL isn’t the most popular league in Texas, but there’s still one team from the league located in the state. In 1993, the Minnesota North Stars relocated to Dallas to become the Dallas Stars.


How old do you have to be to use BetMGM Sportsbook Texas?

BetMGM Sportsbook requires all players to be at least 21 years old, regardless of state.

Can I bet on any kind of sport through BetMGM Sportsbook Texas?

Yes, almost every sport that comes to mind is available to bet on with BetMGM Sportsbook. They offer players 21 sports to choose from, and while the operator hasn’t specified which markets will be available for TX users, we suspect it to be similar to the offering found in other states.

When will BetMGM Sportsbook launch in Texas?

There is not an exact date in place for BetMGM Sportsbook’s launch in Texas. Once Texas officially legalizes sports betting (which could happen as early as 2025), we expect BetMGM to be one of the first operators to go live in the state.
