MediaTroopers, the pioneering digital marketing agency specialising in online sports betting and casino, announced this week that it received its Maryland license and is planning to launch activities in the Old Line State. Approved by the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency, MediaTroopers is now able to offer its decades of combined expertise and top-quality sports betting and casino services to avid bettors in the state.
MediaTroopers’s Maryland Casinos/Sports Wagering Vendor License
MediaTroopers is licensed in 10 US states that require a license, and the company operates in a total of 19 states where online gambling is legal, and in Washington DC. MediaTroopers recently also launched its regulated Canadian operations in Ontario. Like many of its US states, Canada has been proven a roaring success with sports bettors looking for legal, safe betting.
MediaTroopers’ current operating grounds include several of Maryland’s close neighbours. The company has seen success in states like Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Virginia. Therefore, by bringing its quality marketing services to Maryland, the company can reach a brand new audience base and deliver up-to-date news on all things sports betting and online gambling.
Sam Segal, the CEO of MediaTroopers, noted, “We are beyond thrilled to have received a Casinos/Sports Wagering Vendor License with the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency. While we already hold valid licensing and regulation in over a dozen US states, adding Maryland to our substantial portfolio enables us to continue providing our pioneering services to the Mid-Atlantic region of the US.”
MediaTroopers have grown exponentially, more than doubling the number of US states it is operational in over the past year. After being like in 7 states at the end of 2020, the prominent affiliate company is now active in over 16 US states, with Maryland following close behind. This solid expansion has been made possible thanks to MediaTroopers being one of the first companies to obtain licenses and enter new states as soon as they go live.
Exciting Time For Old Line State Bettors
Maryland welcomed its first retail sportsbooks back in December 2021, but the state is yet to launch its online sports betting market. Yet, online betting may come to the state much sooner than you think. John Martin, the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency director, stated that online sports betting will launch in the fall of 2022, just in time for the 2022 NFL season.
Nonetheless, Old Line State bettors will likely have a vast number of sportsbook operators available in the future, as Maryland’s legislation allows up to 60 mobile licenses.
Notable newcomers to Maryland’s betting market may include Barstool Sportsbook, whose parent company (Penn National) acquired a land-based casino in the state in 2020. Ultimately, this would pave the way for an online Barstool sports betting platform in MD. Furthermore, both FanDuel and DraftKings offered significant financial backing to efforts supporting the legalization of sports betting in Maryland in 2020. Therefore, we will likely see both brands launch online operations in the state.
MediaTroopers already has a strong portfolio of dozens of leading US gambling operators and sportsbooks under its belt, including DraftKings, FanDuel, PointsBet, Unibet, and more. As such, thanks to the marketing agency’s long-standing partnerships with the country’s biggest brands, MediaTroopers can promote its partners in MD once legal online betting goes live.
The Future of Maryland Sports Betting
When asked about the future potential of the state, Segal continued, “With the potential for up to 60 mobile betting operators to gain a license in Maryland, the state has the possibility to become one of the US’ most significant online betting markets.”
“Ultimately, Maryland is a state we here at MediaTroopers are really looking forward to working in,” Segal added. “We highly anticipate bringing Maryland bettors even more fun and excitement with legal, safe, and responsible sports betting.”
