A Look At The Operators

Massachusetts will be home to several key sportsbook operators. Popular options from the likes of FanDuel, DraftKings, and BetMGM will be accessible statewide to all legal-age residents. The Massachusetts Gaming Commission spent months deliberating, reviewing, and approving applicants for launch.

Mobile Apps Coming To Massachusetts

  • Bally Bet
  • Barstool
  • BetMGM
  • Betr
  • Betway
  • Caesars Sportsbook
  • DraftKings
  • Fanatics
  • FanDuel
  • PointsBet
  • WynnBET

All of the listed sportsbooks are expected to go live on March 10 with the exception of Fanatics. Reports indicate that the newly launched operator will be going live on a different date. The remaining 10 operators have begun preparing for the big launch, with some offering pre-live promotions in anticipation.

Pre-live offers allow bettors to join sportsbooks early and reap exclusive benefits for doing so. These benefits range from bet credits to deposit match bonuses. Pre-live promotions help kick off a new market with more betting potential for players.

Massachusetts Sports Betting Rules And Regulations

Online sportsbooks in Massachusetts will be able to offer odds on all major professional sporting events. This includes MLB, NBA, NFL, and PGA Tour. There is also college betting allowed with some limitations. Local books are not allowed to offer odds on in-state teams. This restriction is lifted for tournaments such as NCAAF Bowl Games or NCAAB March Madness.

Operators are only allowed to offer odds from within the Massachusetts border. Geofencing technology is put in place to ensure no cross-state violations ensue. The state border also extends within three miles of the ocean, allowing for odds to be accessed on boats and cruises nearby.

“We are ready to go. We’ll be in contact with some last-minute details on information to the geolocation provider, but I expect we’ll be ready to go,” said Karen Wells, MGC Director. “If there are any issues, we’ll come back before the commission … but we expect that this part of the process in launching sports wagering should be all set to go.”

Massachusetts lawmakers have also set rules to see spots wagering geofenced off for sovereign lands. The Mashpee Wampanoag and Aquinnah Wampanoag tribes are located within Massachusetts borders and the MGC honors and respects the sovereignty of the tribe in this respect.

With the March 10 launch being only a few weeks away, locals will soon get their hands on online sportsbooks in Massachusetts.
