Ohio sports betting has a planned launch date of January 1st, 2023. As the event is fast approaching, major players in the industry are waiting to be awarded a supplier license for operation in the state of Ohio. This Thursday, Sportradar announced that it had obtained an official license from the Ohio Casino Control Commission (OCCC).
Ready to launch its operations in Ohio
Sportradar Group AG announced that its US subsidiary, Sportradar Solutions, has been granted a Sports Gaming Supplier License from the Ohio Casino Control Commission ahead of the market opening next year.
The supplier will launch its operation alongside other companies with the green light to offer sportsbetting services in the state. This deal is a huge step forward for Sportrader, who is looking forward to expanding its footprint in the US.
So far, Sportradar has obtained 41 licenses or permits to operate in the US and Canada, providing its customers with accurate sports data, content, and integrity services. Sportradar is one of the leaders in delivering sports data and covering around 890,000 sports events. The company has over 3,500 members working across 20 countries worldwide to bring you the latest and the most accurate sports betting updates.
This year, Sportradar received the “Data Service Provider of the Year” award at the American Gambling Awards, which acknowledges its key role in delivering trusted data technology in the sports betting community. Given the fact that the company is a proven and active supplier in the sports betting industry, the launch in Ohio should also run smoothly.
Several sportsbooks have been approved to run their services ahead of the launch, and sports enthusiasts are only a few weeks away from the big event. Ohio will be the first new sports betting market to launch in 2021, and it will be of the few markets to allow local teams to obtain a betting license.
