Untethered Betting in Maine Gets Initial Approval

Initial approval has been made by the Maine Legislature for a measure that would tax and regulate sports betting while allowing online and mobile sites to operate independently of the brick-and-mortar locations.

Although Maine lawmakers have agreed on allowing sports betting for people 21 and older, the disagreement has been whether those sites should be able to get their licenses only by “tethering,” or allying with in-state facilities.

The Maine bill would preserve a liberal betting system and make the state the first with casinos to allow untethered betting.
