The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission (MLGCC) today approved the qualifications of three sports wagering facility applicants and two mobile sports wagering applicants. The businesses are expected to be considered for license awards during the Sports Wagering Application Review Commission’s (SWARC) next scheduled meeting on February 15.
Under Maryland’s sports wagering law, the MLGCC conducts background investigations to determine whether an applicant has demonstrated the honesty, integrity, good character and financial stability to be qualified for a sports wagering license. SWARC evaluates applicants’ suitability and determines whether awarding a license to an applicant is in the public interest.
The following three businesses were found qualified for sports wagering facility licenses:
· Kathe P. Hospitality (Michael’s on the South River in Riva, Anne Arundel County)
· Canton Gaming, LLC – Canton (The Greene Turtle Sports Bar & Grille in Canton, Baltimore City)
· Canton Gaming, LLC – Towson (The Greene Turtle Sports Bar & Grille in Towson, Baltimore County)
The following two businesses were found qualified for mobile sports wagering licenses:
· Crab Sports Maryland
· SBOpco, LLC (Super Book)
