Governor Hogan Statement on Maryland Lottery and Gaming Approval of Two More Sports Wagering Licenses

ANNAPOLIS, MD-Governor Larry Hogan issued the following statement today after the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Commission determined that two additional entities-Hollywood Casino in Perryville and Ocean Downs Casino in Berlin-qualify for sports wagering licenses:

"No one is pushing harder than I am to get sports betting up and running here in the State of Maryland.

"Our administration has now cleared five licenses for sports betting, implementing the referendum approved by voters and the law passed by the General Assembly.

"With Marylanders looking forward to betting on the NFL and March Madness, we now expect the legislature's Sports Wagering Applicant Review Commission to swiftly approve these licenses."
