March Madness is in full swing and fans across the state are trying their luck by placing their best bets on games.

Mobile sports betting launched last fall and these major sporting events can mean big money for gamblers, sportsbook operators, and Maryland

In fact, Maryland made more than $2.8 million in tax revenue in February and $2.1 million in January and between the NFL playoffs and college games, January was hit with football and with bettors wagering more than $441 million.

With the Super Bowl bettors wagered nearly $340 million and although bets were down more than $100 million month-over-month, profits for sportsbook operators were up, raking in $14 million in January and more than $18 million in February.
