Online sports betting is continuing to surge in popularity, with more than 80% of all sports wagers in the U.S. placed online, according to PBS. Though brick-and-mortar gambling facilities aren’t nearly as popular, they aren’t in decline in terms of betting handle.

In this piece, we’ll take a look at what physical locations there are for Massachusetts sports betting that are live and operating. We will also update you with any additional facilities that may be opening.

Throughout this piece, we will use the terms “retail” and “in-person” facilities interchangeably. This is because the terms are becoming somewhat blurred in betting jargon, and our goal is to provide you with as much information as we can when preparing to gamble.

List of all retail sportsbooks in Massachusetts

  • MGM Springfield (BetMGM Sportsbook): 1 MGM Way, Springfield, MA 01103

What types of sports betting locations exist in Massachusetts?

There is only one type of sports betting location that exists in the state, and that is sportsbooks at casinos in Massachusetts. However, two other types are also somewhat common around the U.S. and could be on the way: standalone facilities and racetracks/OTBs. Learn more about each type here.


Casinos account for the three established retail sports betting facilities in Massachusetts at Encore Boston Harbor, MGM Springfield, and Plainridge Park. Sportsbooks will frequently partner with casinos as a means of entry to a state and to provide more brand recognition and credibility.

At the casino, you’ll find a designated sports betting area that will have self-service sports betting kiosks and possibly staffed betting windows. There may also be bars, restaurants, or a general viewing area where you can watch your bets play out before collecting your winnings from a cashier.


One trend that is evident across the U.S. is seeing racetracks and OTB facilities applying for sports betting licenses. This move can help increase revenues outside of peak racing season by providing additional gambling verticals.

Plainridge Park is a casino that also qualifies as a racetrack, given it holds harness races between April and November. Simulcast wagering on thoroughbred racing is also an option outside of sports betting.

Standalone facilities

Finally, standalone facilities are somewhat of a rarity. They typically end up operating in the same building as a professional team or in their own building near a sporting venue.

Raynham Park is looking to build a sportsbook near the grounds of the now-defunct greyhound racetrack. There is no timeline for when it will open, and the future is a bit uncertain after Caesars backed out of a partnership deal to help offset some of the construction costs.

Are there any more sports betting locations opening in Massachusetts soon?

Yes, there is one new sports betting location in Massachusetts that is on the way. Raynham Park Sportsbook is currently under construction, though it will take some time for the facility to get off the ground, especially after Caesars backed out of a partnership deal with the venue.

Instead, Raynham Park will move forward with the standalone facility adjacent to the grounds of the former greyhound racetrack. A new sportsbook partner may arrive at some point, but for now, the kiosks, betting windows, and gambling software will all bear Raynham Park branding.
