The resort, entertainment and media company says this is the next step to securing live sports betting in the state. 

The company’s Hall of Fame Village BetRivers Sportsbook location will become the only land-based sportsbook in Stark County, Ohio, once Hall of Fame is issued a licence.  

Furthermore, the company says its partnership with Betr will offer a direct-to-consumer platform solely dedicated to micro betting.  

Hall of Fame gained authorisation from the Ohio Casino Control Commission, paving the way for the company to operate both land-based and online sports betting under Ohio law HB29. 

Sports betting is set to be legal in Ohio from 1 January 2023, when anyone of legal betting age will be able to place wagers in the state.  

Hall of Fame President and CEO Michael Crawford said: “The legalisation of sports betting in Ohio, opens up a breadth of opportunity across our company’s three business verticals and for our fans. 

“We will have the only physical sports book in Stark County and the first dedicated sports micro betting platform via the Betr mobile app, bringing fans and guests a multitude of different and new ways to experience sports entertainment.” 

Recently, Hall of Fame signed a 10-year partnership with Rush Street Interactive, becoming its sports betting partner. 

The company also signed an agreement to be Betr’s mobile sports betting partner, a company founded by sports betting veteran Joey Levy and YouTube star Jake Paul.
