North Bethesda Restaurant Become Latest Maryland Sportsbook Spot
Fact Checked by Jim Tomlin

The Maryland sports betting choices keep growing with a sixth non-casino retail sportsbook. The latest one is in North Bethesda, a suburb of Washington D.C. in Montgomery County. The sportsbook is located at Sports & Social, a sports bar and restaurant.

The sportsbook is being operated in partnership between Whitman Gaming and FanDuel. 

The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission greenlighted the sportsbook after a successful controlled demonstration on Aug. 29 and Aug. 31. In a controlled demonstration, customers participate in live wagering as Maryland Lottery & Gaming staff ensures that the sportsbook complies with state regulations and that the sportsbook’s systems are operating appropriately.

The restaurant’s association with FanDuel increases the visibility for the national sports betting operator that runs the FanDuel Maryland online site.
