Players that visit MGM sites online and on-soil can now enjoy a new loyalty rewards program, BetMGM Rewards, in addition to the now-revamped, former M Life Rewards program.

The latest changes allow for more chances to win with some crossover between points-gathering abilities.

Points earned through BetMGM Sportsbook, Casino or Poker can be redeemed for online play credits or converted into points to use toward hotel stays, food, drinks and more.

What is BetMGM Rewards? What happened to M Life?

BetMGM Rewards is now the rewards program for BetMGM. Players in the program will earn BetMGM Rewards Points and MGM Tier Credits.

The tier credits allow for more benefits and access with each unlocked tier. BetMGM Rewards Points used to be known as Internet Reward Points.

MGM Resorts’ former loyalty program, M Life, is now called MGM Rewards. Any points accrued under the M Life program will automatically become MGM Rewards points.

When players sign up for a new BetMGM account, they automatically get an MGM Rewards account, too. If a new BetMGM user already has an MGM Rewards account, the existing account will be matched up during registration.

How do I earn BetMGM Rewards points?

To earn BetMGM points and MGM Tier credits in Michigan and other participating states, users can play online casino games, play poker and/or make wagers using the BetMGM app.

Players can also earn points by placing wagers in person at BetMGM Sportsbook locations, though be sure to check ahead as guidelines may vary per place.

Players can redeem BetMGM Rewards Points for online free play or transfer them into MGM Rewards Points. Redeem MGM Rewards Points to use toward hotels, dining and more at more than 20 MGM resorts.

Earn BetMGM Rewards Points and Tier Credits:


  • Bet $100 in a straight bet nets a minimum of 20 BetMGM Rewards Points and 20 Tier Credits.
  • Bet $100 in a parlay and win at least 50 points and 20 tier credits. Longer odds on the bets can earn more points. Straight bets must have -110 odds and parlays must be +300.


  • Bet $100 in regular slots and instant win games, get up to 20 rewards points and tier credits.
  • Bet $100 in progressive jackpot slots for up to 10 points and tier credits.
  • Bet $100 on live table games, such as Blackjack, craps or Roulette and receive up to 4 rewards points and credits.


  • Pay $100 in cash game rake or $100 in tournament fees and net up to 500 rewards points and tier credits.

Earn MGM Rewards Points and Tier credits by staying or dining and more at MGM resorts as well as playing slots and table games. Redeem MGM Rewards Points to use toward hotels, dining and more at more than 20 MGM resorts.

How does the tier system work?

Players earn tier credits simultaneously when earning either BetMGM Rewards points or MGM Rewards points. Each new tier level has exclusive benefits.

The tier levels include Sapphire, requiring 0-19,999 tier credits; Pearl, requiring 20,000+ credits; Gold, requiring 75,000 credits; Platinum, requiring 200,000 credits and the invitation-only level of Noir.

Tier benefits for each program vary slightly. For BetMGM tier credits, for example, users can qualify for a free birthday bet, with the amount ranging from $5 for sapphire level and $200 for noir.

For MGM Rewards tiers, the best benefits kick in at the pearl level and beyond, and can include benefits such as complimentary tickets to concerts (all levels except sapphire) to complimentary valet parking (for gold members and above).
