Sports betting: See which local bars got pre-approval for 2023

State says process is not finalized yet, but area bars and restaurants line up to take sports bets

The Ohio Lottery released a list of pre-authorized businesses that it will recommend be allowed to have a betting kiosk when sports gambling begins here next year.

Nearly 50 Dayton-area businesses were on the list.

“The Ohio Casino Control Commission (OCCC) will issue licenses based upon the Lottery’s recommendation.” Ohio Lottery officials said in a statement. “Interested sales agents will be required to be in good standing with the Lottery’s rules and regulations and to obtain approval from the Lottery before applying for a license with the OCCC.”

The Ohio Lottery said while its recommendation is one of the requirements to get approval for the licenses, it does not guarantee a business will be approved.
