Launched in May 2019, the Borgata Online sportsbook quickly became a fan favorite. If you’ve already tried out BetMGM.com, then you’ll realize the two sites are eerily similar to one another. This is because the page is operated by GVC Holdings, a legendary British software provider that also lent MGM a hand with their sportsbook.
The experience is pretty much the same, with a few minor exceptions. Again, we encounter a possible contender to disrupt the DraftKings-FanDuel duopoly, but it’s going to take some additional time and work for Borgata to pull off an upset.
If we’re looking at Borgata’s design in a vacuum, then we would say that we love the trifecta of black, white and mustard yellow. These three colors blend in with one another perfectly, with white being the dominant one. While we don’t like overly bright designs, this one is surprisingly easy on the eyes. The contrasting blends in perfectly with the site’s speed, functionality and excellent software. You’re encountered by two lists - one featuring the most popular leagues and the other listing all the available sports A-Z.
In case we’re not looking at the design in a vacuum - it’s a complete rip-off of BetMGM.com. We understand that the site is still very young, but a company such as GVC can do much better than recycle their old work. Nevertheless, mobile apps for Android and iOS work perfectly to the point that you won’t even notice them while using them. As paradoxical as it may seem, it’s a trait that is bound to make Borgata a household name in the near future.
Payment options are plentiful, with VISA, MasterCard, PayPal and Skrill leading the way. Waiting times for transfers range from 12 to 48 hours, depending on your preferred platforms. It’s definitely a compelling group of popular options, without any excess providers. Everything except Check by Mail (for withdrawals only) is available for transfers in both directions.
As for customer service, we expected a regurgitation of MGM’s disaster, but it turned out to be the complete opposite. The priority in Borgata’s help section is educating you through the FAQ section, with agents stepping in if you weren’t successful in finding a solution. Live chat, email and phone support all work perfectly.

While we were able to find all the popular sports in one place, the depth of in-play bets disappointed us. You won’t be able to bet on any interesting props while the match is taking place, but this flaw is offset by the variety of special bets connected to 10 different sports. NBA and Premier League matches receive the best coverage, with 70+ markets per match. Impressive.
