Maryland’s sports betting handle rose to $31 million in March

April 15, 2022

Maryland’s sports betting handle totaled $31 million in March, up from the month before and almost on par with January, the first full month of sports betting operations in the state. The handle — or the amount of money that bettors wagered on games using Maryland sportsbooks — is one measure of the fortunes so far of the state’s budding sports betting industry, which launched in mid-December. For now, sportsbooks are up and running at five casinos, with more facilities on the way and a state-appointed commission looking at how to award more licenses to smaller operators and mobile platforms.
