Maryland Lottery Director John Martin expects legal mobile sportsbooks to be operational in the state within the next three months.
“I am confident that there will be mobile wagering in the state of Maryland in 2022,” Martin said Tuesday morning during a VIXIO GamblingCompliance webinar.
That’s not breaking news, as members of the Maryland Sports Wagering Application Review Commission have shared similar expectations. Martin did, however, lend some additional insight into the timeline for a mobile sports betting launch in the state.
The application for mobile licenses ends on Oct. 21. After that, Martin believes the lottery will give the SWARC a list of qualified applicants (based on background check information) on Oct 27.
