Maryland Live! Casino in Hanover opened its FanDuel Sportsbook this (Friday) morning with Gov Larry Hogan on hand. Prior to receiving a sports betting license the casino successfully completed two days of controlled demonstrations where guests participated in live wagering. Officials with Maryland Lottery and Gaming ensured compliance with procedures.
Maryland’s sportsbooks will contribute 15% of their revenue to the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future Fund, which supports a variety of education programs. The General Assembly’s Department of Legislative Services has estimated that when the sports wagering market is fully launched, it will contribute $15 million to $25 million per year to education funding.
