The group’s expected launch of sports wagering in Ohio in January 2023 is subject to regulatory approval, and all required licences must be approved by the Ohio Casino Control Commission.

“We are extremely pleased with the momentum that we are experiencing among retail establishments looking to provide their customers with our proven, best-in-class, end-to-end sportsbook solution,” said Elys Game Technology Executive Chairman Michele Ciavarella.

“While attending the Ohio Bar Owners Association trade show yesterday, we productively displayed and demonstrated our cutting-edge “Build-your-bet” technology. Our solution offers hosts the added edge of providing mobile access for players to compare markets and prepare their wagers off-site before coming into the host location to place their bet.”

Ciavarella added: “We believe that the bet velocity advantage of this feature could be a win-win for the hosts and players, as it could generate a new stream of revenue while providing an engaging product and service for their current customers, and potentially helping to build their businesses by drawing new customers interested in the sportsbook solution to their venue. Bars and restaurants are ideal locations for our sportsbook solution.

“As customers gather to enjoy food and beverages, the sportsbook adds an exciting way for them to enjoy watching their favourite teams play.”

Elys currently has operations in five US states as well as the District of Columbia.

“We plan to continue to aggressively develop our sales pipeline with additional bars, restaurants, and other retail establishments to implement our sportsbook solution around the country,” concluded Ciavarella.

Elsewhere in the state, DraftKings earlier this month announced it will offer $200 in free bets to Ohio-based customers who sign up before sports betting goes live on 1 January 2023.
