The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission has approved Hollywood Casino in Perryville, and Ocean Downs Casino, in Berlin, for sports betting.
MGM National Harbor, Live! Casino & Hotel and Baltimore’s Horseshoe casino, have already been granted Lottery and Gaming approval earlier in the month.
Governor Larry Hogan said he hopes Marylanders will be able to place bets on the NFL and March Madness. “No one is pushing harder than I am to get sports betting up and running here in the State of Maryland,” he said. “Our administration has now cleared five licenses for sports betting, implementing the referendum approved by voters and the law passed by the General Assembly.
Maryland Lottery and Gaming Director John Martin added: “We’ll continue sending applications to the SWARC so the it can make awards and sports wagering can launch. By late fall. It is want the public wants and expects, and we’re doing everything we can to deliver it.”
