Massachusetts Betters will have an additional platform for online sports betting starting Tuesday, as Bali Betters is set to launch nearly a year and a half after it is licensed by state regulators.

When Balibet is introduced at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, the mobile betting platform in Massachusetts will expand to seven. Balibet joins BetMGM, Caesars Sportsbook, DraftKings, ESPNBet, Fanatics and FanDuel, which are currently operating in the state. Previously, Betr and WynnBet were in the market but have since been forced out.

Brett Calapp, chief operating officer of Bali’s North American interactive division, thanked the Massachusetts Gaming Commission for its support during the approval process. According to WWLP 22 News, the commission unanimously approved Bali’s operating certificate on Monday.

“I think your group’s thoroughness and collaboration and communication were at the most professional level. And as an operator, I think I’m really, really grateful to have that type of cohesive communication throughout the licensing journey. Because it’s complicated and there’s a lot of moving into it and a lot of people involved,” Calapp said. “We’re very excited to go and live in Massachusetts, where sports are part of the community, a state that has such a rich history of sports. And we want to be part of the joy, fun and excitement of sports in your state.”

In addition to online betting, Massachusetts residents can bet directly on three physical locations – Plainville’s Plainidge Park Casino, MGM Springfield and Everett’s Encore Boston Harbor. However, bets placed on these physical sportsbooks typically account for less than 2% of the state’s total monthly betting activity.

I made more than 500 million dollars

In May, bettors in Massachusetts bet $587.26 million on sporting events, according to the latest data from the Gaming Commission. The betting activity generated about $57 million in taxable gaming revenue for operators, paying the state nearly $11.5 million in taxes. DraftKings remains the dominant player in the market, accounting for more than half of all bets placed in May.

Since sports betting became legal in early 2023, Massachusetts’ industry has generated about $149.18 million in state taxes and valuations, as reported by the Gaming Commission. This revenue represents a significant contribution to the state’s finances, reflecting a strong interest in sports betting among Massachusetts residents. 안전 슬롯사이트
