Washington D.C. Online Sports Betting Expecting May Launch

  • Washington D.C. is set to launch its online sports betting application by the end of May.
  • DC’s mobile sports betting industry has taken many steps in a long legalization process.

WASHINGTON — While sports betting in the nation’s capital is legal, officials are not expected to launch the D.C. sports betting app by the end of May.

Their website is what is going to be launched in May while mobile applications are expected to come in early June.

The application must be ready to go live once major sports return to online sportsbooks as some sports have already seen a return.

“While we recognize 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 D.C. Lottery is excited to launch GambetDC, which will modernize our product portfolio and assist in our mission to maximize the revenue returned to support the District’s vital programs and services — The website will be available to the general public with this release. The native iOS and Android apps will be unveiled in early June,” said Nicole Jordan, director of marketing and communications for the lottery.

There were plans for an earlier launch back in March, but the coronavirus sports shutdown has forced them to shift to May.

The online Washington D.C. sportsbook is expected to be run by Intralot which is the lone vendor for sports betting in D.C.

With a return of sports on the horizon, residents of D.C. will be able to enjoy betting on the Redskins, Wizards, Nationals, and Capitals.
