The two digital sportsbooks were requesting to unwind operations in the Bay State as early as Feb. 16. Operators are required to give 90 days notice to take down a platform, unless the commission allows a shortened timeframe.

Betr was hoping to take down its platform on Feb. 16 and WynnBET was aiming for Feb. 23. The requests were the first of their kind in the state and there were myriad questions around bonuses, deposits, returning funds to consumers, and other issues that Betr and the commission tried to work through.
