Peter will join Massachusetts on Monday night
Betr, the microgaming platform owned by Jack Paul, is launching in Massachusetts on Monday night, according to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC).
Bruce Band, director of MGC sports betting, made the announcement during a meeting Monday morning. He didn’t specify a time, only that the company would be fully operational before the clock struck midnight.
They have informed me that they plan to launch this evening after running tests on all of their software.”
During the meeting, Band said, “They have informed me that they intend to start this evening after conducting auditions on all their programmes, and that later today they will begin.”
Betr earned a license with a 5-0 vote ahead of the March 10 state launch date for the online sports betting platform. However, 48 hours before the statewide launch, it revealed that it had encountered internal issues and would not be ready in time.
Betr was launched successfully in Massachusetts last week and he’s following that up with a full launch, just as he planned. It is now the seventh licensed sports betting company in Massachusetts, which first joined the sports betting scene on January 31st.
A mini bet is a form of betting that focuses on the nuances of events, such as if the next pitch is a hit or if the next play is a run or pass. Betr also recently expanded into traditional sports betting during March Madness.
