Legal sports betting in Maine is on track to launch anytime between Nov. 5 and Nov. 15. The state attorney general’s office is currently going through the proposed adopted rules for final legal review.

“Once they’ve approved it, then I will forward it to the Secretary of State’s office,” said Milt Champion, executive director of the Maine Gambling Control Unit. “They typically take three to five business days and then once [the Secretary of State’s office] posts the adopted rules on their website, then then we go live.”

Gov. Janet Mills signed the law legalizing sports betting in Maine last May. Only the state’s four federally recognized tribes will be granted gaming licenses to run mobile applications for sports betting.
