Maryland Sports Betting FAQ
Is Maryland Sports Betting legal?
Yes. Because it was November, Maryland legal sports betting will likely begin sometime in 2021. However, legislators still need to determine the following before bets can begin:
- How many operators can enter the state
- Whether or not online betting will be legal (which does seem like a safe bet)
- How the operators would be regulated
Where will MD funds raised from sports betting be allocated?
Sports wagering taxes must be primarily put toward funding public education.
Will mobile betting be legal in MD?
Statewide mobile betting also seems like a safe bet because of the high handle generated. Elected officials seemed to largely support online betting during discussions earlier in 2020.
