Two state senators who were behind the push to legalize sports gambling in Ohio say they believe it will begin in mid-to-late fall. State senators Niraj Antani, and Kirk Schuring recently said that good progress is being made by the Ohio Casino Control Commission, which is implementing sports gambling in Ohio. Ohio’s legislature passed a sports betting bill in December, and Gov. Mike DeWine signed it on Dec. 22. Sports betting must start by Jan. 1, 2023, according to the bill, but there is room for it to start before then. Exactly when sports betting will begin remains unclear as the Ohio Casino Control Commission is creating rules, applications, forms and other essentials to launch sports betting.
