Undoubtedly one of the most reputable brands in the online sports betting industry, BetMGM was expected to launch in Canada in April of 2022. Now that it became a reality, Canadian bettors are able to enjoy a comprehensive range of live betting options, top offers and a state-of-the-art app.
BetMGM Ontario Sportsbook, like other sportsbooks that went live in Ontario, entered the market with a bang, featuring great incentives to its users. Free bets, match deposit bonuses, parlay bet insurance and odds boosts, are just some of the usual incentives offered to new users. Whatever the bonuses are, make sure you read the wager requirements in the T&Cs.

With all sites operating from within the country requiring a Canadian betting license, Ontario became the first province to launch legal online sportsbooks. Having already abolished the law restricting single match betting, you can read about online sports betting in Ontario here.
One of the world’s most famous betting brands, BetMGM first entered the world of digital sports betting in 2018. Since then, the operator has acquired licenses in 17 US states and has already launched in Ontario in April this year.
Once BetMGM went live in the country, Canadian bettors were sure to be treated with a wide range of markets on all major sports. These include same-game parlays and a host of live betting options, all of which are offered on a user-friendly app available for iOS and Android devices.
