Sports betting in Ohio became legal based on amended legislation known as HB 29. Services will be offered by sports teams, casinos, and racinos in the state.
Mobile sports betting is on the table, which gives players more access to wagering options. Bets can be placed anywhere in the state, making it easy to wager from anywhere.
Due to the availability of betting options, players need to be aware of the risk involved. When gambling is easily accessible, it can lead to overspending or gambling addiction.
All players in Ohio must learn how to self-exclude to practice responsible gambling. With self-exclusion, you can take a break from sports betting and other forms of gambling.
The process is simple to complete by following our guide below. We expect that once sports betting is up and running, the sector will be added to the current self-exclusion process that already exists in the state.
Follow the tips below to know more about self-exclusion from sports betting in Ohio.
The Ohio Voluntary Exclusion Program allows players to remove themselves from gambling services. There are two options to enroll: in person or remotely.
After enrolling, the individual is not allowed to enter a gambling facility or gamble online.
In-Person Self-Exclusion: Visit the offices of the Ohio Casino Control Commission. There are offices offered at physical sportsbooks in the state and the Main Office in downtown Columbus. A trained staff member will help with the application process.
Remote Registration: To complete the remote process, the individual must contact support at 614-387-5693. Instructions are then provided on how to complete self-exclusion from a training individual.
After signing up for self-exclusion, the individual agrees to avoid sportsbooks and racinos. The name of the individual is added to a list of excluded patrons.
The sportsbook or racino operator must make reasonable attempts to stop marketing directly to the individual, such as mailers or email campaigns.
A request for removal form must be completed to see your name taken off the self-exclusion list. Visit a Commission office to start the process. You can only be removed after the selected time limit has passed.
Once your name is removed, you are free to place sports bets online or visit sportsbook /racinos to bet.
You are automatically banned from a casino once you sign up for the self-exclusion list.
This should be included in the self-exclusion process once sports betting is live in Ohio. You can also contact individual providers that offer services to see what types of self-exclusion services are on offer.
Players can choose to self-exclude for one year, five years, or a lifetime.
