Maryland panel OKs 5 sports betting licenses at casinos

November 18th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

A Maryland commission approved in-person sports betting licenses at five casinos on Thursday, with some commissioners expressing concern about moving forward without yet granting licenses to minority- or women-owned businesses.

The Sports Wagering Application Review Commission voted 5-2 for the licenses at MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Live! Casino & Hotel in Hanover, Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore, Hollywood Casino in Perryville and Ocean Downs Casino in Berlin.

It paves the way for wagers to be made at the facilities, potentially in time for this winter's NFL playoffs
