ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland commission has approved in-person sports betting licenses at five casinos.

The Sports Wagering Application Review Commission voted 5-2 on Thursday for the licenses for MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Live! Casino & Hotel in Hanover, Horseshoe Casino in Baltimore, Hollywood Casino in Perryville and Ocean Downs Casino in Berlin. The two commissioners who voted against the licenses expressed concern about moving forward without yet granting licenses to minority- or women-owned businesses.

It paves the way for wagers to be made at the facilities, potentially in time for this winter’s NFL playoffs.
