Maryland Governor Larry Hogan places state’s first legal sports wager at BetMGM Sportsbook

NATIONAL HARBOR. Md. – December 9, 2021 –MGM Resorts International and BetMGM announced today that legalized sports betting is now low live at MGM National Harbor in Maryland. The state’s first bet was placed by Gov. Larry Hogan at the BetMGM Sportsbook & Lounge. Hogan placed a futures wager on the Washington Football Team to face the Baltimore Ravens in the 2022 Big Game.

"Today marks the culmination of more than a year of effort to get sports betting up and running here in the State of Maryland. In addition to allowing Marylanders to bet on football, basketball, and more, sports betting will also help to keep more dollars in-state and will provide another critical revenue source for public education without raising taxes on families and small businesses."
