BET MGM FINED $146,000 FOR TAKING EARLY BETS

BetMGM has paid a fine of 146-thousand-dollars for violating the state’s Sports Wagering Law.  The online sports betting company took wagers on November 16, a week before it was approved to go live in Maryland.  According to the company, the bets were taken because there was an error with the app during the pre-launch testing period.  BetMGM and six other mobile betting apps officially went live the day before Thanksgiving.
