Sports betting in Ohio is less than six months away from launch, but there’s still a lot of work to do before then.
There is only ten days left to submit apps for Ohio Mobile and Retail Sportsbooks who want a chance to get started on January 1st. There can be as many as 46 online sports betting in the market.
This means that the next week and a half could be busy for the Casino Control Commission considering only four mobile operators and three retail operators applied so far.
New Candidates for OH Sports Betting
There were three new candidates for the week ending July, 1staccording to race list maintained by the CCC.
All the applications concerned different categories:
- Sportsbook Bar Stool for his online license
- Elys gaming technology organize sports betting in establishments holding a lottery license
- Hall of Fame Village for its proprietary online and retail licenses
Penn National has access to Ohio to share
Parent company of Barstool Sportsbook Penn National could be the company that profits the most financially from sports betting in Ohio.
Penn owns four casinos in Ohio, which means he can sell up to seven skins online after counting Barstool. At least one of these skins is already counted by PointsBetwho sent Penn 509 128 shares in january at an issue price of CA$6.88or around $2.5 million based on the exchange rates at the time.
That should leave Penn with two first-skin licenses and four second-skin licenses. It could actually be three second-skin licenses if Rush Street Interactive maintains second-skin access he negotiated in February 2021.
Hall of Fame Village works with Rush Street
Whether Rush Street needs this second-skin access depends on its deal with publicly traded companies Hall of Fame Resort and Entertainment Company.
Hall of Fame Village has applied for retail and online sports betting licenses. So far, however, the company has only describes the plans of a retail bookmaker with Bet Rivers.
Elys Brings DC Sports Betting Experience to Ohio
Elys gaming technology also wants to get into Ohio and will put his kiosk experience to work.
ELYS, listed on the stock exchange, is online with kiosks in the CC sports betting market since October. Elys partners with restaurants that want to offer their own sports betting experience instead of partnering with the DC Lotteryit is Gambet DC Mark.
Sports betting through kiosks at lottery licensed locations will be different from betting at a retail or online sports betting store in Ohio. Only spreads, moneylines, totals and two to four leg parlay bets will be taken at the kiosks.
