Ohio state senators approve SB 176 to legalize sports-betting

Taking the first major step towards the legalization of retail and online sports-betting in Ohio, the State Senators passed Senate Bill 176 (SB 176) by voting 30-to-02 in support of the measure.

The SB 176 has specifically designed to allow gaming entities in the Midwestern state to apply for one of 58 land-based and remote sportsbetting licenses that the state government has plans to issue in the coming years.
