Online Gaming in Maine

In March 2024, a coalition of Maine lawmakers advanced an online gambling bill from its workgroup, featuring a modified tax rate and granting authority to the tribes. Under the current proposal, the state's four tribes, already holding a monopoly on online sports betting, would also monopolize online casino operations.

In August 2017, Maine become the fifth state that year to legalize and regulate paid-entry fantasy sports when Gov. Paul LePage neither signed nor vetoed a bill, allowing it to become law by inaction. Under the bill, fantasy sports is a game of skill and exempt from gambling laws. The Gambling Control Unit within the state's Department of Public Safety oversees the industry, and the licensing fee for large operators is $2,500. The bill requires operators to pay licensing fees and 10% of their gross revenue.
