One Maryland sportsbook jumped the gun, accepting bets before receiving a license, and the penalty it received will be the largest the state lottery and gaming commission has ever imposed. BetMGM will pay the state $146,000 after the sportsbook was found to have accepted 146 mobile sports wagers totaling more than $2,000 prior to its acquisition of a proper gambling license from the state. The sportsbook at MGM National Harbor is operated by BetMGM, but the group’s mobile sportsbook operates statewide — it is unclear where the early bets were placed.
