BetMGM Poker Canada’s mobile app is strong from start to finish, offering a sleek interface that’s very easy to navigate through on mobile and desktop devices.

On top of that, the app allows players to customize certain interface options.

Lag is infrequent, so bettors don’t need to worry about their hands being dealt behind other players.

Cash Games

The best poker apps have fantastic cash games available, and BetMGM Ontario Poker is no different. On this app, you can find poker cash games for Texas Hold ‘Em, Omaha Hold ‘Em, and even lesser-known game types such as 5-Card Stud.

Cash games usually have buy-in limits that run from just pennies up to about $50. Weekend nights are usually best for these games. But traffic depends on the time of day and week.

One more fun variation are the Fast Forward cash poker game formats, which have no waiting in between hands. Once you fold your hand, you move to another table and begin a new hand. Though these games are not very frequent, they are great for enthusiasts who want rapid-fire poker game action.

Tournaments

BetMGM Ontario Poker runs weekly tournaments that sometimes reach up to thousands of dollars in total prizes. On top of these regular weekly games, you can also participate in special tournaments that go on throughout the year.

Some of the most important tournaments include:

  • A 10,000 GTD Daily tournament with a $109 buy-in
  • A 3000 GTD daily tournament with a $215 buy-in
  • A 35,000 GTD Sunday weekly tournament that begins at 5:00 PM with a $215 buy-in

Of course, sit-and-go tournaments are available during peak traffic hours with buy-in stakes ranging from $1 to $500. Sit-n-Go tournaments are available in Hold ‘Em and Omaha poker varieties, and in standard or “turbo” speed formats depending on how quickly you want the game to be over.

Cashout

When the time comes to fund your account for further play or withdraw your money after a hot winning streak, you have several deposit options available, plus a few different withdrawal choices. When depositing, you can use ACH or e-check transfers, prepaid card transfers, electronic wallet platforms like PayPal, online bill pay terminals, and potentially even credit and debit card transactions.

Withdrawal requests take about two business days to be approved, but you have almost the same variety here as you do for deposits. Prepaid cards, electronic wallets, physical checks in the mail, and e-check transfers are all possibilities.

In this way, BetMGM Poker Ontario makes it fairly straightforward to fund your or withdraw your winnings. So it should be easy for Ontario residents to enjoy this poker platform no matter how much they plan to spend.
