The Ohio Casino Control Commission announced on Friday that it has begun to allow for stakeholder comments on draft applications with regard to mobile sports betting implementation.
The commission is currently welcoming stakeholder comments on Type-C sports gaming proprietor license applications and plans to take stakeholder comments on additional applications as they are developed.
The draft for the Type-C sports gaming proprietor license application is nine pages and includes information requesting information on financial history, criminal history, civil litigation history, liens, judgments, or garnishments, and bankruptcies.
Type-C sports gaming proprietors will include businesses with self-service or clerk-operated terminals located in establishments with D-1, D-2, or D-5 liquor permits. The Type-C proprietors will not exceed 20 across the state and are allowed to place kiosks at an unlimited amount of Type-C gaming hosts. With Type-C sports gaming proprietors, limits will be placed on bet types, money a person may wager per week, and the number of kiosks at a particular establishment.

The application fee for a Type-C sports gaming proprietors license lasting five years is $100,000.
Gov. Mike DeWine signed HB 29 on Dec. 22, which legalized sports betting in Ohio. The implementation of the sports betting platform isn’t a simple process and is expected to take most of the year before anyone will be able to place a sports bet in the Buckeye State. The sports betting is to launch by Jan. 1, 2023.
The commission formally filed Batch 4 of its proposed sports betting rules with the Common Sense Initiative (CSI) office on Wednesday afternoon.
Stakeholders have until April 28 to email written comments concerning the Type-C sports gaming proprietor license application draft to the commission at [email protected].
