Sports fans of Ohio, rejoice! In-person and mobile sports betting is now legal in your state. That means you are now able to place bets, in person and on your mobile device!

What do I need to sign up for the mobile sportsbooks in Ohio?

In order to sign up for most mobile sportsbooks, you'll need to have a few things ready:

  • Your social security number, date of birth, and a valid mailing address

  • A driver's license or legal ID

  • Your phone, with location services enabled for the sportsbook app of your choosing

It sounds like a lot of personal information — and it is! You can read about why they need this information and how they keep it safe here in our Sports Betting FAQ. The process can take anywhere from 2-10 minutes, but once you're registered, the process of placing your bets takes just seconds!
