Earlier today Governor Hogan tweeted his support to get sports gambling started in Maryland, “We are pleased that the legislature’s sport wagering commission has finally acted to approve these licenses.
Our administration will continue to work to get sports betting up and running in Maryland as quickly as possible.”
Per The Baltimore Sun, The Sports Wagering Application Review Commission gave its blessing to Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore, Live! Casino & Hotel in Hanover, Hollywood Casino in Perryville, MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill and Ocean Downs Casino in Berlin.
Governor Hogan signed legislation to legalize sports betting in Maryland earlier this year in May.
It is estimated that sports betting will generate close to $20 million annually, the majority of which would go towards education.
