Sports betting goes live in Maryland
MGM Resorts International and BetMGM announced today that legalized sports betting is now low live at MGM National Harbor in Maryland.
The state’s first bet was placed by Gov. Larry Hogan at the BetMGM Sportsbook & Lounge. Hogan placed a futures wager on the Washington Football Team to face the Baltimore Ravens in the 2022 Big Game.”Today marks the culmination of more than a year of effort to get sports betting up and running here in the State of Maryland.
In addition to allowing Marylanders to bet on football, basketball, and more, sports betting will also help to keep more dollars in-state and will provide another critical revenue source for public education without raising taxes on families and small businesses.”
The BetMGM Sportsbook & Lounge is one of several sports wagering locations debuting at MGM National Harbor and offers guests a state-of-the-art gameday experience featuring wraparound jumbotron video walls, multiple sports betting kiosks and mobile food and beverages operations.“As we celebrate MGM National Harbor’s fifth anniversary, the addition of sports betting further strengthens our reputation as the DMV’s premier entertainment destination. We’re proud to provide our guests a one-of-a kind experience, while bringing more jobs and revenue to the state.”
