BetMGM Kansas: Everything To Know About A Possible Launch
The Kansas sports betting bill was recently signed into law by Governor Laura Kelly, which paves the way for sports betting in Kansas to go live later this year.
It's expected that Kansas sports betting will go live at some point this fall, likely in the middle of NFL season. Once the market goes live, BetMGM Kansas is expected to be one of the first sportsbooks to launch in the state. First, it will need to apply for a sports betting license with the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission. The application process will open no later than August 15.
It's not 100% certain which retail casino BetMGM will partner with to provide a sports betting app but we know that Boyd Gaming owns the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane. And Boyd has a partnership with BetMGM to provide mobile betting wherever there is either a Boyd property or an MGM Resorts International casino.
It does get a bit complicated, however, since Boyd Gaming has filed a lawsuit against the state of Kansas, the Kansas lottery and the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission, for what it deems a breach of contract triggered by the new sports betting law (due to the fact the bill allows for horse racing machines to be operated at nearby Wichita Greyhound Park).
Nevertheless, BetMGM Ohio will likely launch once the dust settles and you should definitely sign up because BetMGM is considered one of the best sports betting sites in the nation. With great features like live betting, odds boosts, and competitive odds, BetMGM Kansas is sure to be one of the top choices for Kansas sports bettors once it makes its debut. And once it goes live, you will be able to use the BetMGM Kansas bonus code to start betting on sports.
How To Bet At BetMGM Kansas
Betting at BetMGM Kansas will be easy to do. If you want to bet on the BetMGM Kansas sports betting app, here's what to do when BetMGM Kansas launches:
- Go to the Apple App Store for iOS or the Google Play Store for Android
- Search for the BetMGM Kansas sports betting app and download it
- Register for a new sportsbook account
- Enter a Kansas BetMGM bonus code (expected to be BOOKIES)
- Deposit at least $10
- Get your risk-free bet up to $1,000 (expected Kansas BetMGM bonus code)
Here's how the risk-free bet works: if your first bet loses, you'll receive that amount back in a free bet. If you bet the max, you'll get five $200 free bets. Any amount over $50 will be paid in 20% denominations (i.e. five $200 bets for $1,000 wager). However, if you bet less than $50, you'll receive a single free bet token in that amount. You'll then have seven days to use the free bet (s).
Once you are signed up, make your first deposit and start betting. The BetMGM Kansas sports betting app is sure to work great on mobile devices. Alternatively, you can sign up for BetMGM Kansas via its website, but we believe the mobile app will be one of the best sports betting apps coming to Kansas.
If you want to bet at a BetMGM Kansas physical location, you can do that too. It’s expected that the Kansas Star Casino will be the home of the BetMGM Kansas retail location. The advantage of the physical location is that you will be able to bet with cash instead of online depositing methods. You would also get a physical ticket when betting at a potential BetMGM Kansas retail location.
What Does The Kansas BetMGM Bonus Code Offer?
After BetMGM Kansas launches, in order to use the BetMGM Kansas bonus code you'll likely need to enter the bonus code BOOKIES when registering for a new account. We'll confirm this at launch time.
Then, the bonus code will likely deliver a risk-free first bet worth up to $1,000. We'll also confirm the offer nearer launch time. With a risk-free first bet at BetMGM Kansas, you'll be able to bet with the knowledge that a losing wager will be refunded in free bets.
For example, just say you sign up for a new BetMGM Kansas sportsbook account using the bonus code BOOKIES. Let’s say you are making a moneyline bet on the Kansas City Royals to defeat the St. Louis Cardinals in MLB Betting and you bet $500, but the Royals lose the game.
If that happens and you've signed up as a new customer with the risk-free bet offer, BetMGM Kansas would give you back site credits equivalent to your first losing bet (five $200 free bets if you bet the max of $1,000; if you bet less than $50 you'll get a single free bet credit).
