New Maryland Sports Betting Bill Could Become Cash Cow For State Lottery by Adam Candee
Maryland sports betting could prove profitable for the state lottery under a bill introduced late last week.
Still outstanding, however, is the question of whether Maryland voters would need to approve legal sports betting.
The bill dropped by Dels. Jason Buckel and Kevin Hornberger would authorize the Maryland Lottery to conduct sports betting. Under the lottery’s oversight, state horse racing licensees and video lottery (VLT) operators could apply for a sports betting license.
