Online sports betting in Maryland is finally becoming a reality—much to the delight of many prospective users in the area. Before we get into the nitty-gritty, Maryland sports bettors looking to get a jump on the competition can preregister with DraftKings Sportsbook and snag $200 in free bets by simply preregistering prior to the go-live date:


As detailed above, Caesars Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook, BetMGM Sportsbook and PointsBet Sportsbook are also offering pre-launch bonuses, all of which do not limit the Maryland online sports bettors from capturing the standard new-user promo expected to be available once the state officially launches legal online sports gambling.

Interestingly, legal sports betting has already and technically been legalized in both an online and retail setting, though only the latter has been officially launched to this point (available).

Maryland bettors should have a plethora of major sportsbook options to choose from when the action gets underway, with the state set to approve a number of online entities ahead of launch. Lucrative sign-up bonuses and promo codes will be offered both during a pre-registration period (as mentioned above), as well as after legal online betting in Maryland goes live.

With state officials nearing an announcement, many bettors are wondering, when will Maryland sportsbooks launch? It’s one of the top questions of the 2022 Big Ten college football season, similar to the same question SEC college football fans continuously ask in regard to many of their states (Florida to name just one).


Maryland Sports Betting Launch Details

The state of Maryland has already legalized sports betting, with retail brick-and-mortar sportsbook accepting their first bets back in December 2021. And while the in-person sportsbook experience has been enjoyed by many in the area, it will be an even bigger launch when legal online sports betting finally goes live in Maryland.

And while an official launch date has not yet been revealed, a recent breakthrough from state officials seems to suggest that online sportsbooks could go live in Maryland by the end of November 2022.

This would undoubtedly be a delight for many bettors in the area, as the sporting landscape is jam-packed right now halfway through the NFL season and the NBA is in the early stages of their own 2022-23 season.

To make the launch of Maryland online sportsbooks even more eventful, pre-registration offers will be available for new users to take advantage of profitable sign-up bonuses.
