Betfred Sports has signed an agreement with Long Shot’s of Frederick, Maryland to bring retail and online sports betting to Maryland pending regulatory approval.
A temporary retail sportsbook will be adjacent to the Maryland Jockey Club’s OTB within Long Shot’s for the 2022 football season. A permanent, 8800 square foot, state-of-the-art sportsbook with a video wall and comfortable theater-style seating will open just after the first of the year. A robust food and beverage menu will also be available. Online betting will be launched when formally allowed by state regulators.
“We were at the forefront of bringing sports betting to Maryland and specifically to Frederick. We are thrilled to open a sportsbook at Long Shot’s in partnership with Betfred Sports. We are proud that Long Shot’s is one of the premier off-track betting locations in the State and we look forward to achieving similar success with sports wagering. Long Shot’s will not only boost the local economy but contribute to enhancing the education of our students,” Long Shot’s CEO Alyse Cohen said.
“We identified Long Shot’s very early when searching for a Maryland partner. When combining Betfred’s 50 years of bookmaking experience and Long Shot’s success with off-track betting, we believe this will be a formidable partnership to compete in the Maryland sports betting space,” Bryan Bennett, Chief Operating Officer at Betfred Sports, said.
The temporary sportsbook, scheduled to open in September pending regulatory approval, will consist of in-person betting windows and self-serve betting kiosks.
