Stadiums You Can Bet in Person in Ohio on Game Day

News January 24, 2023

Which stadiums can you place a sports wager at in-person in Ohio? From Cleveland stadiums to Cincinnati-based team locations.

After passing legislation in December 2021, sports betting officially launched in Ohio on January 1, 2023. This was announced by Matt Schuler, the Casino Control Commission Executive Director.

With sports betting here in Ohio, it’s in a state with two professional football teams. The Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals.

In other areas where sports betting is legal such as Washington D.C., there are options available for betting on-site at each stadium. Here, we’ll examine each stadium and any partnerships which allow you to bet in person in Ohio on game day.

Cleveland Browns: FirstEnergy Stadium

Can you bet in person at FirstEnergy Stadium? The answer is yes.

On April 26, 2022, the Cleveland Browns announced a partnership with Bally’s Interactive. This deal means that Browns fans will be able to place wagers inside a Bally’s-branded lounge inside the stadium, which is expected to open imminently.

And if you’re not bothered about betting at the sportsbook on property, you can always just get your mobile out. Remember, you can wager online via your mobile device at any of Ohio’s online sports betting sites. Even during the game!

Cincinnati Bengals: Paycor Stadium

Like the Browns, the Bengals have also applied for and been granted a sports betting license. But not quite to the same extent as the Browns.

The Bengals applied for a mobile-only license and are partnered with Betfred Sportsbook. They were the first Ohio professional franchise to apply for a license and did so in July 2022.

From January 1, Bengals fans have been able to bet in person in Ohio. And that includes wagering on game day at Paycor Stadium. The Bengals’ partner, Betfred, hails from the United Kingdom and is currently available in five states. It was founded by a guy named (you guessed it) Fred. Those five states include:

  • Colorado
  • Iowa
  • Pennsylvania
  • Louisiana
  • Arizona

Betfred is also set to launch in Nevada and Maryland. At the next Bengals home game you attend, expect to see lots of Betfred representation.
