PointsBet Maryland Retail Sportsbook Location

Maryland has had retail sports betting since last December, but the PointsBet Maryland retail sportsbook, which launched on September 8, is unique for a couple reasons: Its location - and its ownership. PointsBet Maryland's recently opened retail sportsbook in the Riverboat on the Potomac - in ... Colonial Beach, Va (it's moored). Yes, PointsBet Maryland's retail sportsbook's physical address is in Virginia.

The Riverboat spans both Maryland and Virginia, but the betting lounge, restaurant, and other portions are located across the state line in Maryland, hence why it legally has ownership of the PointsBet Maryland sportsbook. That makes it a sweet proposition for PointsBet and the state of Maryland, since it will certainly attract sports betting action from Virginia, too. 

The Maryland online sports betting launch was delayed by a diversity requirement. It is a first-of-its-kind requirement when it comes to sports betting legislation and the partnership between the off-track racing facility and PointsBet is the early model for what the state hopes to create. The Riverboat on the Potomac is 100% minority owned. 

The Riverboat owners, Maruthi Prasad Veeramarchnani and Suri Gagandeep, are South Asian, while their partners - Tony Jones (of Demlock Technologies) and Winston DeLattiboudere (co-managing member of the Riverboat Group) are African American.

PointsBet Maryland Partnerships

PointsBet MD is also the official sports betting partner of the University of Maryland. That means there will be PointsBet Maryland signage across the campus, as well as the XFINITY Center and Capital One Field at Maryland Stadium. Also, make sure to use a PointsBet Maryland promo code to sign up for the sportsbook since online sports betting is now legal in Maryland.

PointsBet Sportsbook secured the first sports betting partnership with a Big Ten school in December of 2021, just as Maryland launched retail sports betting.

There are sure to be a Maryland Terrapins basketball related PointsBet Maryland promo considering college sports betting is permitted in the Old Line State. Click below to get started at PointsBet Maryland Sportsbook!
