Intralot Nearly In For DC Sports Betting As Council Narrowly Waives Bid Process

The District of Columbia could be the next US jurisdiction to roll out a legal, regulated sports betting industry. During a scheduled legislative meeting on Tuesday, lawmakers voted 7-6 in favor of a proposal to bypass competitive bidding for the DC Lottery contract.
