Sports Betting

The Betfred Sportsbook at Long Shot’s has successfully completed its controlled demonstration with the Maryland State Lottery & Gaming Control Agency and will officially open its doors for the betting public on Friday, November 18.

All proceeds from the four-day demonstration procedure have been donated to The Community Foundation of Frederick County.

The initial sportsbook which is just across from Long Shot’s, the area leader in off track betting, will be in a temporary location while the permanent sportsbook is under construction.

Long Shot’s is very excited to bring both retail and mobile sports betting to Frederick County. We are thrilled to add not only jobs, but also to support our state’s education fund. It will be a big win for everyone in Frederick,” said Long Shot’s CEO, Alyse Cohen. She added, “Our state-of-the-art permanent facility opening in early 2023 will be the first and only 100% woman owned sportsbook in Maryland. It will also be the only sportsbook in the entire region. We look forward to welcoming everyone soon.”

Bryan Bennett, Betfred Sportsbook Chief Operating Officer, stated “We’re excited to open our seventh retail sportsbook in the United States and could not be happier to do so with the Long Shot’s team. We look forward to leveraging Betfred’s 50 years of bookmaking experience to provide a first-class betting experience to the bettors of Frederick County and across Maryland.”
