| By Marese O'Hagan
The Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC) has revealed 29 potential applicants have registered an interest in securing new sports betting licences in the US state.
On 7 October the state’s regulator released a scoping survey, a required prerequisite of a sports wagering operator application in Massachusetts. Parties interested in applying were required to submit the survey by 17 October so that the MGC could begin reviewing those that plan to apply.
The MGC said that it received 29 operators scoping surveys from potential applicants for Category 1, 2 and 3 Sports Wagering Licences by the deadline. Three were in relation to Category 1 Licences, three from parties interested in Category 2 Licences, and 23 came from potential Category 3 Licence applicants.
