SuperBook successfully completed a controlled demonstration of its mobile sports wagering platform, resulting in the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission issuing a mobile sports wagering license to its parent company, SBOpco.
During the demonstration, customers participated in live wagering as Maryland Lottery and Gaming staff ensured that SuperBook complied with all required procedures, and that its systems functioned properly.
SuperBook is currently the ninth mobile sportsbook operator to launch in the state, joining brands such as Barstool, Betfred, BetMGM, BetRivers, Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, FanDuel, and PointsBet.

During March, Maryland’s sportsbooks combined for more than $385.9 million in handle and set a single-month benchmark with more than $5.3 million in contributions to the Blueprint for Maryland’s Future Fund, which supports public education.
Maryland Lottery and Gaming Director, John Martin, said: “There are a few events on the calendar that really drive sports wagering participation, and the NCAA basketball tournament every March is right at the top of that list.
“This was the first time that mobile wagering on March Madness was available in Maryland, and as our market continues to mature we’re pleased to see it generate a strong contribution to education funding,” he added.
