As the end of the year fast approaches, many of us will be looking to 2023 to see what it has in store – no one more so than the residents of Ohio. With betting in Ohio set to launch on January 1st, locals and those travelling can take advantage of all sports betting has to offer. Whilst those in the state may have felt a bit left out when it comes to placing a bet on some of their favourite teams, with success in neighbouring states like Indiana and Michigan, in the coming year they can take advantage of all of the excitement that wagering on sports, to win cash or have fun with your friends has to offer. We’ll take a look at this in more detail below, and what it means for the state and its resident sports lovers!
What issports betting?
Sports betting is huge all over the world and is a way of adding another element of excitement to your favourite sports. If you follow sports closely, you can place bets on your favourite teams – in several different ways – to give you the chance to win some cash. If your team isn’t playing, you can place your bets on something as simple as which team you think is most likely to take the victory. Whether your favourite sport is football, hockey, or soccer – there is an option for everyone.
As we mentioned previously, there are different ways in which you can place your bets. For example, money line bets are some of the simplest, and most popular, all you must do is bet on which team you think is going to win the game. You can place under/overs, also known as total bets, point spreads and futures bets. There is something for everyone – just make sure you know what you must do to win each before you start betting to give you the best chance of winning!
Where can I bet in Ohio?
So, if you’re hoping to get started placing your bets in 2023 when sports betting finally comes to Ohio, you may be wondering where you need to go to do this. There are various ways in which you can bet, with the introduction of betting kiosks, as well as sportsbooks, which we will look at in more detail below.
This new piece of legislation in 2023 will allow for betting kiosks to open in establishments like restaurants, and bars – even your local grocery store! A special Type C license allows various retail premises to house a kiosk that can take money and allow people to access and place wagers on a huge range of sports. This makes it easy for Ohio residents to place bets and take advantage of all sports betting has to offer, with no casino or sports book necessary.
As many of us will know, sportsbooks are some of the most popular when it comes to betting. And in 2023, these establishments, both in-person and online will be available in Ohio. This makes it easier, and more convenient for those that would like to give sports betting a go, whilst also offering a range of generous promotions and bonuses, as well as games and a huge range of odds. Choosing a sportsbook to bet online or in-person means you can get the full experience when it comes to increasing the engagement and excitement of your favourite sports and allowing you to win a bit of cash!
