DC Lottery launches online betting platform

29 May 2020

The DC Lottery has announced the launch of its online sports wagering platform in the state of Washington D.C., though the roll out of a supporting mobile app has again been delayed until June.

Developed in partnership with Intralot, the Gambet DC platform had been due to go live in March, but the launch was pushed back due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

Players in the state can now register for an account via the Gambet website and place sports wagers, though options are currently limited due to the ongoing suspension of many major sports events as a result of the outbreak.

Per sports wagering laws in Washington D.C., betting will be permitted on all major sports events and collegiate sports, though players will not be able to bet on events featuring college teams located in the state.
