Sports Betting Delays in DC, Bars Apply to Take Wagers

D.C.’s Office of Lottery and Gaming confirmed that sports betting has been delayed by a few weeks. It plans to begin accepting applications for sports gaming licenses in September.

Applications for provisional licenses could be approved in 30-45 days, while the process of approving standard licenses could take as long as three to six months.

In a statement emailed to WTOP, the Office of Lottery and Gaming said it is “committed to establishing a solid regulatory framework that fosters public confidence and trust in the integrity of sports wagering operations in the D.C.”

A group of bars that have banded together under the name Bet DC in hopes of getting Class B gaming licenses is still working toward that goal.

Tennessee Online Sports Betting Will Take a While

Tennessee lawmakers voted to legalize sports betting in the state and Governor Bill Lee reluctantly let the measure become law without his signature.

So why aren't bets taking place yet?

From the Tennesseean:

The law calls for the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation and its board to create the rules and regulations needed to allow gambling in the state.

In addition, the law mandates the creation of a nine-member lottery corporation sports wagering advisory council.

Three members each will be appointed by the governor, the lieutenant governor and speaker of the House. The council will advise the lottery board on best practices, private administrative and technical assistance regarding sports gambling and carry out "any other duties as prescribed by the (lottery) board."

So far, not all nine members have been appointed.
