Sports Bettors Flock to Indiana Casinos

DC Sports Betting Won't Work in Hundreds of Locations

As the DC Lottery prepares to launch sports betting throughout the District, work is underway to create an app allowing you to bet while on the go. But the News4 I-Team found there are hundreds of places where that app won't work.

"It is going to be quite the jigsaw puzzle," said Sara Slane, an advisory board member for GeoComply.

"We're in 42 states right now. We process 10 million geolocation transactions every day," Slane said, adding that the restrictions for the new District app will be the most complicated of them all.

Here is the problem as uncovered by the New4 I-Team:

Washington DC only has 63 square miles of land. A sports wagering report compiled for the DC Lottery points out that much of that acreage is in something called the federal enclave, "where lottery products cannot be sold."

At least one part of federal law says a "lottery does not include the placing or accepting of bets or wagers on sporting events."

The federal enclave is a complex designation created decades ago. The I-Team asked the Lottery for a map or list of those properties restricted for sports betting and was told it's still being developed.

The District contains hundreds of pieces of federally owned property. Some are obvious like the National Mall or Rock Creek Park, others like Kalorama Park or Meridian Hill Park could confuse would-be sports betters.

"I think the wrinkle with the federal lands definitely presents its challenges," Slane said. "It is not necessarily very easy to determine or know where there might be restrictions."

The District-wide app will also block you from placing bets within the four professional sports venues: Capital One Arena, Nats Park, Audi Field and the Entertainment and Sports Arena.

Buffalo Wild Wings Partners With MGM, Will Encourage Sports Betting in Restaurants

Darren Rovell went on to explain that "the Buffalo Wild Wings deal with MGM is a bettor database sharing play. In non legal betting states, MGM learns who is playing the free-to-play game. In legal betting states, geolocation at restaurants encourages fans to download MGM app for better lines".

It's interesting to note that, as the news was going to press, this happened:
