MGM Drops Mobile Sportsbook In New Jersey With Borgata’s PlayMGM App

On Wednesday after two-plus weeks of waiting, the MGM-owned Borgata’s playMGM app will give company to the DraftKings Sportsbook, which had fully launched on August 6 and remained the only online sports betting app available in New Jersey.

But wait no more: the playMGM app is available now to New Jersey-based Android users. “The playMGM NJ Sports app is being initially soft-launched on the Android platform, with an iOS version due to launch imminently,” said MGM Resorts International in a statement coinciding with the app’s release. “Through our partnership with GVC Holdings, our mobile betting operations in New Jersey will be delivered on a best-in-class mobile platform that positions us as a leader in technology, accessibility and sports betting expertise” added Scott Butera, MGM Resorts International President of Interactive Gaming.

After zipping around the platform a bit from here in New Jersey, what follows is some initial impressions, notes on what you can bet and some odds and ends.

So what can patrons wager on? A lot.

There’s straight bets, futures, props, and parlays all available. The professional (NFL) and college football menus are queued up with a wide variety of different player and team props, futures and totals, such as:

  • Most regular season losses by any NFL team: o/u 13 (-110)
  • Deshaun Watson regular season touchdown passes o/u 26.5 (-110)
  • Kareem Hunt regular season rushing yards o/u 1099.5 (-110)
  • Regular season points by Philadelphia Eagles o/u 404.5 (-110)
  • Will the Texans make the playoffs?  Yes -130, No +110
  • Which two teams will make the Super Bowl? For example, Steelers/Saints is 50-1
  • Will Grier (West Virginia) regular season passing touchdowns: o/u 35.5 (-110)
  • Regular season wins by Nebraska 6.5 (o/EV, u -120)

What can’t folks wager on for now?  So far I did not find live or in-play wagering options on playMGM. It’s possible I’m missing them or they simply may not have been introduced yet.
