Maryland Vote Passes To Speed Up Mobile Sports Betting Process
After debate between Maryland Lottery officials, mobile sports betting could be coming sooner than you think. Mobile sports betting was originally expected to launch before the Super Bowl in February but after a vote by the Sports Wagering Application Review Commission (SWARC), the launch could be closer to November or December. Maryland is now in a 45-day application period where mobile and physical operators have begun submitting their paperwork to be considered, ending on October 21st. The recent vote will allow SWARC to distribute licenses as they go instead of delivering them all at once.
