Another Maryland online sports betting app has launched in the Old Line State.

The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission today issued a mobile sports wagering license to SuperBook, which officially became the ninth online sportsbook to launch in the state.

SuperBook joins Maryland sports betting scene

The Maryland Sports Wagering Application Review Commission (SWARC) approved the online sports betting operator license for SuperBook Sports in February.

On April 11, SuperBook successfully completed the necessary controlled demonstration of its online sports betting platform.

There are currently nine live online sportsbooks in the state:

  • Barstool Sportsbook
  • Betfred Sportsbook
  • BetMGM
  • BetRivers
  • Caesars Sportsbook
  • DraftKings
  • FanDuel
  • PointsBet

These are joined by 10 retail sportsbooks in the state:

  • Greenmount Station in Hampstead
  • Hollywood Casino in Perryville
  • Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore
  • Live! Casino in Hanover
  • Long Shot’s in Frederick
  • Maryland Stadium Sub at FedEx Field in Landover
  • MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill
  • Ocean Downs Casino in Berlin
  • Riverboat on the Potomac in Charles County

FedEx Field, home of the Washington Commanders, recently opened the first retail sportsbook to be located directly in an NFL stadium. The Commanders reached an agreement with Fanatics Betting and Gaming to operate the facility.

March profitable for sports betting

March was the most profitable month for Maryland sports betting, according to Maryland Lottery and Gaming. The state set a new record with $5.3 million in sports betting tax revenue, an 89% increase from its pervious high of $2.79 million in February.

Statewide handle for the month totaled $385,967,195, with online sports betting accounting for 95.9% of the total handle. Online sports betting account for $5.1 million in sports betting tax revenue, while retail sportsbooks contributed $198,953.
