Massachusetts becomes the 24th state in the country to legalize mobile sports betting. Retail sportsbooks in the state opened in January, and for the mobile platform, around six digital operators will be live in time. So far, the state has issued ten temporary licenses. However, just a few of these sportsbooks have operational permits to go live during the launch. This article will highlight the list of all MA sportsbooks ready for launch.
Massachusetts sportsbooks ready for launch
The top sportsbooks include Barstool, BetMGM, Caesars Sportsbook, FanDuel, DraftKings, and WynnBET. Some sportsbooks partner with existing casinos and businesses to offer customer specials. Other approved sportsbooks include Betr, Bally Bet, Fanatics, and Betway. However, they are not quite ready to launch. Some sportsbooks will likely resume shortly after the main launch. Others, like Betway, may not launch until 2024. We can expect Fanatics and Bally Bet to launch later in the year.
The Massachusetts Gaming Commission is strictly regulating gambling advertisements and promoting responsible gambling. It has expressed concern for the recent announcements and advertisements on social media platforms like Twitter.
List of sportsbooks launching and their potential offerings
Barstool SportsBook is the first on the list. Its retail location is at Plainridge Park, and it plans to offer customers specials. For instance, it will include a live stream of the launch event, and members can wager on sports.
Like most new sportsbooks, this platform offers a welcome bonus to users. Users may be eligible for bonus cash to wager on other games.
This platform is available in MGM Springfield and intends to offer bonuses for its new customers. Some potential benefits include first-bet offers and bonus cash to play with.
This sportsbook is in Raynham Park and has a mobile app for those who prefer online betting. New customers also get a bonus for signing up. Aside from a welcome bonus, users will get weekly rewards and bonus bets as they keep wagering.
This platform doesn’t have a retail location yet. However, it will welcome its customers in the state with bonus bets. These bets are also available for existing customers. It is expected to kick off the launch with a first bet celebration.
Like DraftKings, FanDuel does not have a retail location. However, it has a mobile app and no elaborate plan for launch. This doesn’t mean customers won’t get rewards and other perks. New users can get bonus bets and enjoy free-to-play games to keep busy.
This sportsbook has a physical location in Encore Boston Harbor. It will offer a welcome bonus and bet credits depending on the bet. Players can expect bonuses and promotions to keep them hooked even if it has no plan for the opening day.
While retail sports betting has been available, mobile sports betting has joined the ranks. Gamblers can place wagers as long as they are over 21 years. Also, there are mobile apps for online wagers. Only six are launching, but more will likely join in the next few months to one year.
