Sports betting in DC has been delayed again.
But this time it’s for a good reason.
The Lottery’s DC sports betting platform from Intralot was set to launch by March 31 as of two weeks ago. But the uncertainty of when sports will return because of the coronavirus pandemic led to a change of plans in Washington DC.
“We are revising our sports wagering launch strategy based on the current state of world events, but will be posting information about the platform in the coming days, including introducing the brand and its functionalities,” said Nicole Jordan, director of marketing and communications. “The Lottery and Intralot are prepared to launch the platform when it is safe for the sports world to return.”
The app and web platforms were both tested and approved to go live, Jordan added.
