In-person Massachusetts sports betting officially launched at 10 a.m. on Tuesday.

Massachusetts is the second state to launch sports betting this year after Ohio went live with online and retail sports betting on New Year’s Day. While an official go-live date for online sports betting has yet to be announced, all indications are that mobile wagering will launch in Massachusetts sometime before March Madness.

Bay State bettors will be able to place their in-person wagers at three different casinos after the Massachusetts Gaming Commission awarded operation certificates to them on Monday.
