The legalization of sports betting in Maryland is officially on the books, after Governor Larry Hogan signed HB 940 into law. This bill allows for up to 60 online sportsbooks, and allows for up to 40 retail sportsbooks.

While the Maryland sports betting market is relatively small compared to some other states, there are plenty of options. Depending on your tastes, there are mobile and desktop options, and some sites have special deposit match deals and bonuses.

In order to get the most out of your money, it is important to find the best site for you. There are plenty of free betting sites, but if you are looking for a premium experience, you will want to check out one of the top sportsbooks in the state.

For example, BetFanatics offers some of the most lucrative promotions and free bets in the industry. They also have some of the most impressive features, like live betting odds and a parlay builder.

Another option is the SuperBook, which has the best MLB odds in the country and offers on-site betting incentives at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. If you’re a Baltimore Ravens fan, you might have already heard of this site.

The official sports betting rules of the game were published in the Maryland Register on August 21, 2021. Among the new offerings is an NBA direct feed that will be of value to bookmakers in the future.

Finally, there are mobile and desktop apps. These apps offer the same features and functionality as their online counterparts, and are available via app and direct from the sportsbook site.
