How to Play

Now Available in Ohio

Type C sports gaming wagers can be placed in-person at bars, restaurants, and other eligible Ohio Lottery retailers throughout the State. Wagering will be available through self-service or clerk operated terminals within each venue.

A type C sports gaming host location will only accept wagers from a patron who is 21 years of age and physically present in the facility. Patrons will be required to show a valid form of ID for age verification prior to placing a wager.

Each sportsbook proprietor will have player directions and House Rules built into their kiosk machines to assist players. This information will also be available through their website.

  • The help screens will offer quick and easy directions to:
    • Navigate available events and wager types
    • Select desired teams and enter wager amounts
    • Fund your wagers (cash, credit/debit, etc.)
    • Redeem winning tickets
  • The House Rules will provide the general terms and conditions that each sportsbook is offering. Players should always refer to the House Rules when they have questions on a sportsbook’s solution. The House Rules will include, but are not limited to:
