Sports betting challenges remain in 3 states following key 2020 voter referendums

Voters overwhelmingly supported sports betting in three states with legalization referendums on their respective 2020 ballots, opening up all three to legal wagering as early as next year.

One month after final votes were cast, here’s where some leading industry stakeholders view as the biggest questions that need to be resolved before betting can begin in those states.

Maryland voters and lawmakers largely supported legal sports betting this year, and stakeholders anticipate a 2021 launch. To do so, elected officials must resolve key questions about which entities will be able to take bets.

Lawmakers back statewide mobile wagering, which could make up 80% of Maryland’s total handle. With the exception of Delaware, every neighboring jurisdiction has full mobile betting.
