Washington DC bill would allow more mobile sports betting competition

Washington DC council member Kenyan McDuffie has proposed a bill that aims to increase competition in the state’s online sports betting market. The bill would create a new class of sports betting licences: three Class C licences, which would be reserved for eligible sports teams.

Currently, GambetDC is the only betting app available across the majority of Washington DC. Under the new bill, there would be no geofencing around the sports venues but geofencing around federal lands would remain in place. The bill would require operators currently partnered with sports franchises or venues to apply for a new licence in order to offer betting across the district.
