Maryland Sports Betting to Go Live on 23rd November

This is the news the Maryland sports betting market has been waiting for! It has now been announced that Maryland sports betting operators will be able to accept bets via smartphone and tablet from November 23rd, as mobile sports betting has been given the green light from that date!

Retail sportsbook wagering has been available since December 2021, in the Maryland sports betting market, but almost a year later the most significant move in the market has been given the go-ahead by the Maryland Lottery. Now, users will be able to place wagers from the comfort of their own homes, rather than having to visit the BetMGM Sportsbook at MGM National Harbor, or the Caesars Sportsbook location at Horseshoe Casino, in Baltimore.

Let's look to answer some of the biggest questions surrounding the Maryland sports betting launch on November 23rd.

Can I Sign up for a Mobile Sportsbook Account Before November 23rd in Maryland?

Yes, there are multiple sportsbooks already accepting pre-live signups in the Maryland sports betting market, and they are offering incredible offers like a $100 no-deposit bonus, or a $200 bonus when new users sign up.

The following sportsbooks are already taking pre-live signups now and will reward you handsomely if you sign up today.

Can I Place a Mobile Wager Before November 23rd in the Maryland Sports Betting Market?

No, Maryland Lottery officials have said that no sports betting will take place "soft launch" or not, before the November 23rd date.

The only way to bet in the Maryland sports betting market before the 23rd of November will be in the Retail Sportsbook locations.

Which Sportsbooks Will Be Live on Day One of the Maryland Sports Betting Launch?

The following sportsbooks are expected to go live on day one of the Maryland sports betting launch, and you will also see below, who the sportsbooks have partnered with in order to obtain their license.

Here is the list of 7 operators expected to launch on day one of the Maryland sports betting market.

Three other sportsbooks received SWARC approval, but will not be launching on day one:

  • Betfred Maryland - Long Shot LLC
  • betPARX Maryland - Greenmount OTB
  • BetFanatics Maryland - Washington Commanders

Interestingly, of that list, it is BetFanatics that catches the eye, as they are going to be the Official Betting Partner of the Washington Commanders, so it is notable that they will not be ready to go on November 23rd.

Can We Expect Any More Maryland Sports Betting Operators Soon?

According to the SWARC chair, Tom Brandt, the expectation is that a further 11 mobile sports betting licenses could be awarded at the commission's meeting on December 14th. That is certainly the earliest we will see any updates, and no operators will be added to the Maryland sports betting market before then.

Maryland Sports Betting to Launch Ahead of Thanksgiving NFL Games

The great news about the November 23rd launch date is that this means Maryland sports betting users can place wagers on the Thanksgiving NFL games, which is hugely exciting for those that have been waiting to wager in the Old Line State.

Here are the three games scheduled for this year's Thanksgiving NFL schedule:

  • Buffalo Bills vs Detroit Lions - 12:30 pm KO
  • New York Giants vs Dallas Cowboys - 4:30 pm KO
  • New England Patriots vs Minnesota Vikings - 8:20 pm KO
