Gambling regulators have just announced good news for MGM Springfield, awarding them with their sports betting license on Monday. This gives them the all clear to have in-person betting in their casino at launch when it open early in 2023. The approval of MGM Springfield’s bid makes it the second casino in Massachusetts to acquire a retail sports wagering license. The vote to award the license came after a unanimous vote though they had to push through some turmoil to argue in favor of the casino. MGM Springfield has already completed the area for their sports betting facility saying they installed a 45 foot screen to show games, a bar and seating as well as a wagering counter and betting kiosks.
