About Massachusetts Sports Betting
Massachusetts has recently legalized both retail and online sports betting, making it legal for residents to place wagers on sports events in the state. On January 31, 2023, retail sportsbooks were launched, and mobile sports betting apps went live on March 10, 2023. This was made possible through the passing of House Bill 5164 by Gov. Charlie Baker on August 10, 2022. The new law designated the Massachusetts Gaming Commission as the regulator of the state’s sports wagering industry.
The Senate voted 36-4 to accept the deal, and the agreement was announced in a tweet from House Speaker Ron Mariano. This means that Massachusetts now joins the growing list of states that have legalized sports betting, providing residents with a legal and regulated platform to place bets on their favorite sports events.
For those looking to place sports bets in Massachusetts, it is important to note that bettors must be at least 21 years old and physically located within the state’s borders. This can be verified through a phone’s geolocation technology or a downloadable desktop plugin.
Residents can place bets both online and in-person at certain casinos in the state, including Encore Boston Harbor, Plainridge Park Casino, and MGM Springfield. Additionally, there are six live online sportsbooks available in Massachusetts, including BetMGM, WynnBET, Barstool, FanDuel, DraftKings, and Caesars. Four more sportsbooks are set to launch at a later date, including Bally Bet, Betway, Betr, and Fanatics Sportsbook.
Sports betting enthusiasts can also engage in daily fantasy sports through platforms such as PrizePicks, FanDuel, DraftKings, and Boom Fantasy.
Regarding the types of sports that can be bet on in Massachusetts, residents can legally place bets on all major American league sports, such as the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and NHL. They can also place bets on other sports, including European basketball leagues, cricket, and rugby. College sports betting is allowed on out-of-state teams and only on Massachusetts collegiate teams if they are participating in a tournament with three or more teams.
In summary, Massachusetts residents can now enjoy the convenience and excitement of legal sports betting. With both online and in-person options available, sports enthusiasts can place wagers on their favorite teams while adhering to the state’s regulations.
