Second anniversary of GambetDC arrives amid consistent criticism Bennett Conlin, Sports Handle · May 28, 2022 at 10:14 am Saturday marks the two-year anniversary of the launch of GambetDC.

There’s even potential that the D.C. Council could decide to move away from GambetDC in coming months and years, if the platform’s performance doesn’t improve. A few days before GambetDC’s second birthday, let’s take a look down memory lane at the timeline of (mostly disappointing) events since the lottery-run platform debuted.
