Independent evaluator bill approved in Maryland
| By Marese O'Hagan
A bill that would require Maryland’s Lottery and Gaming Control Commission to instal independent evaluators to assess sports betting content has been signed by the state’s governor.
Governor Wes Moore approved bill SB621, which will become effective on 1 July 2023. Maryland’s sports betting market opened on 23 November 2022.
The content assessed by the evaluators will be that produced by sports betting experts, influencers and content partners.
