Having trouble depositing into your BetMGM Sportsbook account? Play+ is here to help. They have partnered with BetMGM to offer customers an alternative way to fund their accounts. Watch our four-step video tutorial to learn how Play+ can benefit you.
What Is Play+?
Play+ is a third-party, FDIC-insured reloadable account that may be used to fund your favorite resort, sports, or iLottery account.
The BetMGM Play+ Card is the version of Play+ that’s exclusively used to fund a BetMGM account or MGM Resorts account. Play+ essentially functions as an FDIC-insured bank account that you can use to transfer funds to and from your BetMGM account.
Other betting sites offer their own version of the Play+ card. To use Play+ at BetMGM, you must have the BetMGM-branded Play+ card.
