Sports Betting Launches in Massachusetts

Legal online sports betting officially launches in the state of Massachusetts today, March 10th, 2023. Since 2018, not long after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the federal ban on sports betting, Massachusetts lawmakers have been discussing the possibility of legalization. The Massachusetts State House approved the bill to legalize sports betting three times before the bill got approved by the Massachetts Senate during an all-night session in April 2022. 

After the agreement, Speaker Ron Mariano tweeted, “I am proud to announce that the Sports Betting Conference Committee has reached an agreement on legislation that will legalize wagering on professional and collegiate sports in Massachusetts, bringing the immense economic benefits of a legal sports betting industry to MA.” 

To promote safe and responsible gambling habits, the state launched a Voluntary Self-Exclusion program that will allow players to voluntarily exclude themselves from casino gambling, sports wagering or both for a predetermined amount of time.
