Sportradar scores Ohio betting supplier licence

The Ohio Casino Control Commission has granted a sports gaming supplier licence to Sportradar, ahead of the market opening on 1 January.

Sportradar now holds 41 licenses across North America, including in US States, territories, tribal lands and Canada.

The business provides its services to a broad range of clients operating in these jurisdictions, delivering sports data and other services to a number of operators and other suppliers.

Legal sports betting is set to launch in the Buckeye state from 1 January 2023. Governor Mike DeWine signed the legislation legalizing sports betting, HB 29, in December 2021. DeWine has previously been outspoken about his support for industry.

In November, Sportradar announced that its US revenue was up 61.2% to €31.6m.

“This growth was driven by a strong increase of US betting services, driven by cross-selling non-data products to betting operators as well as benefiting from our customers’ growth as a result of a development in the underlying market and new states legalizing betting,” the group said.
