Maryland was an early adopter of a legal lottery, and there is a long history of legal horse racing and pari-mutuel betting in the state. For several decades, that was the limit. In , legislators decided to allow the residents of Maryland to vote on slot machines, though the number allowed would be limited.

There are now six full-fledged casinos operating in Maryland, one of which is also connected to a racetrack at Ocean Downs. The last time there was a chance that Maryland legislators would consider online gambling was in In the summer months, the Associated Press reported that the State House Speaker introduced the idea of online gambling to be discussed at a House Democratic Caucus meeting.

Other states in the area are also considering bills with a varying degree of seriousness, with New York leading the pack but others like Connecticut , Massachusetts, and even West Virginia taking a look at their options.
