Who gets a piece of the action if legal sports betting comes to Mass.? Callum Borchers, WBUR · May 16, 2019 at 3:02 pm Casino gambling begins in Greater Boston next month, and another form of wagering could be next. State lawmakers are considering multiple bills that would legalize sports betting, including one proposed by Gov. Charlie Baker. Businesses, sports leagues and even the Massachusetts State Lottery are debating who should get a piece of the action. Few companies have been as energized as Boston’s DraftKings by a Supreme Court decision that allows any state to legalize sports betting. DraftKings has offered cash prizes in fantasy sports for years, and it hopes Massachusetts will do what New Jersey did shortly after the court’s ruling last year — give it a license to book wagers on real games, too.
