BetMGM gift cards are essentially prepaid cards designed exclusively for depositing money into your BetMGM account. When you deposit using one, it includes a $10 deposit bonus for the sportsbook or casino.

Here's a step-by-step example from buying one at the counter to successfully depositing with it on the site.

  1. You may purchase a BetMGM gift card at partnering merchants that sell them. They are commonly available in quantities of $25 and $50.

  2. Once you've got your hands on one, sign in to your BetMGM account and click on the ‘Deposit' option. Next, select it as your payment method.

  3. Find the PIN behind the scratch-off part on the back of the card. Enter this PIN online.

  4. After successfully redeeming the gift card, the amount will be applied to your BetMGM balance immediately. You can subsequently spend the funds at the web-based sportsbook or at the online casino.

  5. If you use the funds to place a bet and win, you can withdraw the winnings from your account.

It's important to note that BetMGM gift certificates can only be used once. They can’t be reloaded, and any remaining balance remains until it is fully used. You also can’t withdraw funds from the card.

In the unlikely scenario that your card is declined, it’s either because you have already redeemed it or because the PIN was entered improperly.

BetMGM gift cards are different from MGM Resorts gift cards. The latter can't be used at the sportsbook, whereas BetMGM gift cards can't be used for accommodation or dining at retail resorts.

In 2021, BetMGM announced it had partnered with TAPPP, a leading provider of flexible payment methods, to supply BetMGM gift cards at major convenience and supermarket retail chains. They are available in states where sports betting and BetMGM are legal.

Here are a few stores that carry them:

  1. 7-Eleven

  2. Dollar General

  3. Speedway

  4. Sheetz

  5. Kum & Go

BetMGM gift cards cannot currently be purchased online. So, be careful — if you come across a website that sells them, it is a scam. On the other hand, MGM Resorts digital gift cards can be purchased online directly from the site or from various sellers, such as Amazon, Kroger, or Office Depot.

If you type in on Google search “BetMGM gift card near me,” a BetMGM gift card TAPPP store locator will appear as the first option, and you can browse stores that carry them in your area.
