When using the gaming app, players can earn BetMGM Rewards points, which can then be converted to Marriott points. Players in licensed states (this program is only available in select states) can link their Marriott Bonvoy and BetMGM accounts by accessing “Account Details” within their profile and following the prompts under “My Rewards.” Then, you can start earning points when you bet through the app or play at the online casino. Once you set up your account and start earning points, you can then redeem your Marriott points for free hotel nights, airfare, gift cards and more.
