MGM National Harbor, others eye establishing sports books after Md. legalizes sports betting
Maryland voters voted for a referendum that legalizes sports betting by a roughly 2-1 margin, but it will be several months before anyone is legally allowed to wager on sporting events.
And the rules surrounding all that wagering are still to be determined.
“This does set up the General Assembly well to move swiftly,” said gaming consultant Sara Slane. “Obviously there’s a lot of competition in the DMV area, with the District having legalized sports betting, as well as the state of Virginia hoping to launch in early 2021 as well.”
