Prospective Operators for Sports Wagering

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission requested that entities interested in licensure for sports wagering in Massachusetts submit a Notice of Intent and a subsequent Scoping Survey for informational purposes to aid the MGC in projecting the number of applicants for Sports Wagering Operator Licenses.

A list of the entities that submitted one or both of these documents can be found listed below, along with redacted versions of their completed applications, if applicable. Their associated filled-out forms and materials are available next to each entity’s name.

Neither a notice of intent nor a scoping survey is an application for a sports wagering license.

Category 1 Licensees

Prospective Category 2 Operators

Raynham Park and Suffolk Downs are the only entities eligible to apply for Category 2 licenses at this time. Both companies have indicated that, while they intend to apply, they are not prepared to begin offering in-person sports wagering by January 2023.

Category 3 Applicants Approved for Temporary License – Tethered to a Category 1 or Category 2 Applicant

Category 3 Applicants Approved for Temporary License – Untethered
