Lottery run online sportsbook, GambetDC, to accept first wagers next month.

US.- Legal online sports betting will soon arrive in the country’s capital, as Washington D.C. gets ready to launch its platform through the government-run D.C. Lottery.

The online sportsbook, GambetDC, will take its first wagers in June, even though a large number of global sports events remain cancelled due to Covid-19.

In a statement to the Washington Post, the D.C. Lottery said: “While we recognise there will be a limited number of events to wager on, this ‘soft launch’ will provide us with an opportunity to roll out the GambetDC website to potential players in the District in preparation for the return of sports.”

The Bundesliga in Germany, UFC and NASCAR have all returned top action in recent weeks, as has horse racing.

Most US sports franchises like the NBA, NFL and MLB are all working towards a date to return to action.
