NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Lottery's leader expects the state's first online-only sportsbooks to go live no later than Nov. 1.

 

At a board meeting Wednesday, Lottery CEO Rebecca Hargrove said four operators have submitted completed applications to date. She said their financial info has been sent to a third-party vendor and she hopes background checks will be completed by mid-September.

 

Hargrove said it's possible betting can start a week or two earlier if all of the operators are ready and background checks come back quickly enough. T

 

ennessee’s sports betting law passed narrowly in spring 2019. Republican Gov. Bill Lee let it become law without his signature.
