Successful Demonstration Completed

In getting approval for online operations, Betfred successfully completed a controlled demonstration of its Maryland sports betting mobile wagering platform Feb. 7.

During the controlled demonstration, customers were able to do actual wagering as the Maryland Lottery and Gaming staff observed and made sure Betfred’s procedures and operations were in compliance with state sports gambling regulations.

Maryland betting apps debuted with seven operators on Nov. 23. Also known as mobile wagering, the sportsbook apps allow customers to wager on sports on computers and mobile devices such as smart phones and smart pads. Customers must be within the state to participate.
