Maine residents will eventually be able to place in-person sports wagers at the state’s two retail casinos and at off-track betting facilities, but a timeline for when those facilities will accept wagers has yet to be determined.

DraftKings partnered with the Passamaquoddy Tribe to be one of the state’s two digital platforms, while Caesars Sportsbook announced in May its partnership with three of the four Wabanaki Nation tribes.
