Maryland voters made it clear they wanted sports betting in 2020. Now, it is about to come to fruition. The Maryland legislature passed one of the most open sports betting bills in America in April 2021. All told, there are 110 licenses up for grabs. Maryland casinos, sports venues and horse tracks will have access to a license to offer retail and online sportsbooks. The law also aims to get minority-owned businesses into the industry as well. Expect the first retail sportsbooks to launch in the fall, with betting apps getting going by the end of 2021.
