A company partnering with operators of the Maryland State Fairgrounds has been approved for a sports gaming license despite concerns that the company has yet to turn a profit. The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission voted 6-0 with one abstention to award a license to Crown Maryland Gaming. The company, owned by Boston-based DraftKings, raised concerns from at least one member of the commission because of repeated annual losses totaling more than $3 billion over a five-year period.
