MGM National Harbor isn’t waiting on Maryland to open the sports betting floodgates to get its own sportsbook ready for the masses.
The state’s largest casino by gaming revenue has been filing permit applications with Prince George’s County since early March for what it’s calling a “sportsbook enhancement project.” The facility will be located adjacent to National Market, MGM National Harbor’s food court.
The Maryland General Assembly only adopted legislation Monday, the last day of its session, to implement sports betting statewide — Gov. Larry Hogan has not yet signed it and state gaming regulators will still need to issue rules on its operation. Maryland voters approved sports betting by referendum in November.
