Welcome, Maryland Online Sports Betting
The long-awaited online Maryland sports betting market will see seven sportsbooks go live during the eight-hour demonstration window. Expected to launch today include Barstool Sportsbook, BetMGM, BetRivers, Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, FanDuel, and PointsBet. BetRivers in particular made an official announcement about today’s soft launch.
“The much-anticipated launch of online and mobile sports betting in Maryland is here, and just in time for all the NFL and College football action over the Thanksgiving. We are thrilled to give Maryland’s NFL and college football fans an exciting sports betting experience to enjoy all the holiday action at the touch of their fingertips. In addition to football, BetRivers offers them endless entertainment with countless other sports and betting options available for their pleasure, including exciting single game parlays on the NBA and college basketball and bets on the World Cup.”Said Richard Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer of RSI
During this window, fans will be able to deposit, wager, win, and cash out from their betting accounts as if the market were fully live. In addition, all pre-live promotions can be accepted during this demonstration window.
Maryland mobile sportsbooks will keep accounts active following the end of the demonstration period. This means that players who have funds in their betting accounts will be able to see these funds again on the official launch. There will be no need to create a new account as the account made today will be secure.
Maryland Online Launch Sticking To Schedule
When lawmakers announced the target for launching ahead of Thanksgiving, the Maryland Lottery worked hard to meet this. Now that online sports betting will be available today, those goals have come to fruition.
Fans can already download these apps and create betting accounts. Wagers will not be able to be placed until the demonstration period. Those who are aiming to be among the first to bet in the Old Line State should create accounts early in preparation.
Marylanders rejoice, mobile and online sports betting is officially here! Don’t miss out on all the best offers to lock in free bets at the sportsbooks above.
