Caesars sportsbook has gained access to the Maine market and is now the first national operator to be welcomed into the state’s sports betting scene.
Nearly one year ago on May 2, 2022, Maine legalized sports betting when Gov. Janet Mills signed LD 585. That signature authorized the states’ four tribes to handle exclusive privileges as sports betting operators, though that is no longer the case now that Caesars has been granted permission.
Caesars’ deal is with three of the local tribes. The company can now offer online sports betting services and can seek retail licenses if it so chooses.
