Finally, after months of waiting, SuperBook Sports can finally begin getting the most out of their investment of time and money in the state of Maryland and through their partnership with the Baltimore Orioles.
The deal between SuperBook Sports and the Baltimore Orioles was inked prior to SuperBook Sports being awarded their gaming license from the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission. While that might seem short sighted at the time, SuperBook knew that they were likely going to be subjected to the second round of Maryland sports betting licensing, as opposed to the initial wave of titans of the industry.
So, now that SuperBook Sports is armed with their new sports wagering license in the state of Maryland, they have “officially” opened their new SuperBook Bar and Restaurant at Camden Yards. The sports bar held its grand opening this past Friday, although it has been serving customers all season.
What are the details of this new SuperBook Bar and Restaurant at Camden Yards? What can bettors use this space for? What does this mean for the partnership between the Baltimore Orioles and SuperBook Sports?
Can you bet at SuperBook Bar and Restaurant at Camden Yards?
While the unofficial opening of SuperBook Bar and Restaurant at Camden Yards – which sits at 333 W. Camden Street in Baltimore – was during April of this year, the official grand opening was on Friday, May 12.
This new SuperBook Bar and Restaurant is taking over the space that was once owned by Dempsey’s Brew Pub; a bar that permanently closed last year after serving the city of Baltimore for a decade.
This new SuperBook Bar and Restaurant is modeled loosely after SuperBook Sports flagship bar and restaurant in Las Vegas, which is where SuperBook Sports calls home. That SuperBook Bar and Restaurant sits within the Westgate Las Vegas Hotel and Casino.
This new SuperBook Bar and Restaurant will obviously serve food and drinks to patrons using the space, but its main focus is to create a comfortable environment for sports fans and patrons alike to bet on sports in a mobile setting despite being in a restaurant and bar that is operated by SuperBook Sports. So while there will not be any betting kiosks or betting windows, anyone who wants can bet on their mobile devices using SuperBook Sports or any other licensed sports wagering platform.
The layout of the SuperBook Bar and Restaurant will feature a whopping 38 televisions which includes a monstrous 150-inch LED wall. The SuperBook Bar and Grill will only be open during home games of the Baltimore Orioles.
While it may have seemed curious to agree to a deal to become a sports betting partner of the Baltimore Orioles despite not having a sports betting license at the time, now SuperBook Sports has been proven right.
“SuperBook Sports is excited about this partnership with the Baltimore Orioles,” said Kristin Mackey, SuperBook Sports Vice President of Marketing via press release. “The heritage and tradition of the Orioles brand fits perfectly with the SuperBook brand. To be a part of ‘The Ballpark That Forever Changed Baseball’ is an honor, and we look forward to bringing a one of a kind sports lounge experience to fans. The future of the Orioles is bright, and we look forward to continuing to grow together for years to come.”
SuperBook has modest opening month in Maryland
April was the first month SuperBook was licensed to take online bets in April. It handled a little more than $530K in bets in a partial month.
Thanks to welcome promotions and a good month for bettors, it actually paid out $532K for a -0.3% hold.
May will serve as the first full month for the mobile sportsbook in the state, which will give us our first apples-to-apples look at how it compares to its Maryland sports betting counterparts.
