Maryland Lottery and Gaming Commission has granted two additional sports betting licences to Hollywood Casino in Perryville and Ocean Downs Casino in Berlin.
The pair join MGM National Harbor, Horseshoe Casino Baltimore and Live! Casino and Hotel Maryland in obtaining sports betting licences within the state from the Gaming Commission – of which John Martin was appointed director back in July.
Hogan said: “No one is pushing harder than I am to get sports betting up and running here in the State of Maryland. Our administration has now cleared five licences for sports betting, implementing the referendum approved by voters and the law passed by the General Assembly.
“With Marylanders looking forward to betting on the NFL and March Madness, we now expect the legislature’s Sports Wagering Applicant Review Commission to swiftly approve these licences.”
