Ohio has now legally commenced sports betting across the state. Several sportsbook apps launched in the region on January 1, marking the start of legal sports betting.
Currently, users can choose from three different options:
- By betting online across sportsbooks
- By betting in-person at casinos via retail sportsbooks
- By betting in-person at licensed retailers via kiosks
According to the casinos, the OH sports betting law lets users place wagers from anywhere in the state. The provision is applicable to mobile sportsbook applications such as those listed. As per the rules, the legal sports bets must be placed in Ohio, but the players do not have to be Ohio residents.
When it comes to mobile apps, the procedure can be done via smartphones. The first step towards this is installing any sportsbook app of choice on the phone. The sign-up procedure will need the identification of data, such as an address, name, social security number, etc.
Once the process is complete, players can easily find their accounts via different methods. The process can be completed quickly, in time for NFL football Week 17. The market for sports betting in the United States is increasing rapidly, and the best sports betting sites guarantee honest and secure wagering.
Here is a list of mobile sportsbooks that are already live in Ohio, as per the Ohio Casino Control Commission:
- Barstool Sportsbook
- Hard Rock
As for retail sportsbooks, 12 are already set to release, including 10 casinos, the Cincinnati Reds, and FC Cincinnati. On the other hand, five licensed apps are unlisted:
