A new report is shedding some light on the deficiencies surrounding sports wagering in the District of Columbia.
The GambetDC app has faced years of scrutiny for not working, and not delivering for District residents. The report by Axios says contractors are getting paid nonetheless.
For many, GambetDC just hasn’t met expectations. In December 2018, D.C. somewhat controversially decided to award a contract to an exclusive sports betting provider without having much of a competitive bidding process. There were reports in the first full year that the lottery lost $4 million.
The D.C. Lottery said things improved, but bettors still opt to place wagers in Maryland and Virginia among more reputable companies.
