Mobile sports betting could launch in Maryland by Thanksgiving, as officials said Monday that they slightly accelerated what has been a drawn-out process. Voters in the state approved sports gambling in a 2020 referendum, and in 2021, Republican Gov. Larry Hogan signed a bill allowing in-person and mobile sports betting. In-person betting began that year, but the launch of online gambling has taken longer. To place bets now, Maryland bettors must either go to a betting facility or drive across state lines and place bets on their cellphones once there, which has frustrated gamblers.
