If you have a love for the NFL, you’ll be happy to know that you can bet on the league legally. Thanks to the NFL’s multiyear agreement with FanDuel, DraftKings and Caesars Entertainment, you can wager on your favorite team through official online sportsbooks and sports betting apps.
Before the NFL began offering official betting, it was illegal for athletes’ families to bet on fights. The conduct policy also prohibits coaches from gambling on fights.
For those who prefer to bet on sports on-the-go, there are a number of Ohio sports betting apps and kiosks that allow you to place legal bets from the comfort of your own home. These sportsbooks are regulated by the Ohio Lottery Commission and approved by the Ohio Casino Control Commission. You can find betting kiosks at bars and restaurants in the state.
There are a total of nineteen official betting licenses issued by the Ohio Casino Control Commission. BetRivers, Bally’s, Caesars, Fanatics, JACK Cleveland Casino, Parx Casino, Rush Street Interactive, SuperBook and WynBET are all approved. It’s not clear when the other sportsbooks will launch.
In July, DraftKings was designated as the “Official Daily Fantasy Game of the PGA TOUR.” This is the first time a sportsbook has been designated as an official fantasy game partner. Throughout the season, DraftKings will have the rights to create pre-game betting programming, distribute highlights to its users and advertise on TOUR partner platforms.
During the Memorial Tournament, betPARX will be the sponsor of mobile betting. In addition, the company will be offering branded fan experiences throughout the tournament.
