With sports betting in Ohio set to launch in less than a month, potential bettors in the Buckeye State have had a plethora of pre-launch bonus offers to take advantage of from the online sportsbooks approved to go live statewide on Jan. 1.
Tipico Sportsbook is one of the latest online sportsbooks to attempt to entice new users in Ohio. The company recently announced three special offers for Ohioans who register early through the Tipico Sportsbook mobile app.
About the Ohio deals, Tipico’s US CEO Adrian Vella said:
“Our bonus offers will fuel the fire of the diehard Ohio sports fan, eager for heart-stopping sports moments. The Tipico team has worked tirelessly on meaningful product innovation that will inspire new bettors to put their money on the home team.”

As part of its early account registration, Tipico will give away $10,000 in tickets for concerts at those venues throughout December 2022.
Tipico’s Gannett partnership seen as advantage in Ohio
Tipico was founded in Europe in 2004 and has a global presence in the sports betting marketplace. In the U.S., Tipico Sportsbook currently operates in Colorado and New Jersey, with expansion soon into the Indiana, Iowa and Ohio markets.
In November, Tipico Sportsbook received approval from the Ohio Casino Control Commission to operate its app statewide. Tipico’s sportsbook app partner is Major League Soccer franchise the Columbus Crew. Tipico will also operate the retail sportsbook at the Crew’s Lower.com Field.
In terms of brand recognition, one key advantage Tipico Sportsbook will have over the other sportsbook apps expected to launch in Ohio in the new year is its partnership with Gannett, the largest newspaper publisher in the U.S.
Tipico is the exclusive sports betting and iGaming provider for Gannett, with its odds and branded content featured in Gannett properties across the country. Gannett operates 21 newspapers in Ohio, including the Columbus Dispatch, Akron Beacon Journal and the Cincinnati Enquirer.
