The operator claims its new sportsbook will deliver a betting experience to sports fans in the area of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia (DMV).

The sportsbook will feature 21 high-resolution screens, a bar setup with food and beverage offerings, an exclusive lounge area, booth seating and a standing room. 

PointsBet’s sportsbook joins other retail outlets in The Riverboat on the Potomac’s 1,000-capacity facility. 

Other retail outlets at the location include Bodhi-Naav, a minority female-owned business, and a minority business enterprise called Delmock Technologies. 

Paul Hannon, SVP of Corporate Development at PointsBet said: “PointsBet is delighted to commence operations with The Riverboat team in the brand new sportsbook overlooking the beautiful Potomac River.  

“This is a seminal achievement for the partnership and Maryland’s gaming industry at large. The launch represents the first minority business enterprise to go live with licensed gaming in the state’s history, in line with the spirit of legislation.” 

PointsBet says the launch of its new sportsbook comes in time for the peak season of the wagering calendar, which includes the start of the NFL, NCAA Football, NBA and NFL calendars.

Maryland State Senator Arthur Ellis added: "I am proud of the work the members of our delegation, Senator Jackson, Delegate Proctor, Delegate Davis, Delegate Patterson, and Delegate Wilson have put into the sports wagering bill. We fought hard for the sports betting industry in Maryland to be inclusive of both Charles County and minority businesses. 

“The partnership between the Riverboat and PointsBet is a success on both fronts, proof that Maryland can be a leader in equity. This sportsbook gives Charles County a seat at the table, with 100% minority business enterprise licensed ownership in a billion-dollar industry. I trust that the Riverboat and all of its partners will keep up the hard work and be strong partners in our community, and a leader in this new industry for the state."
