Seeking to encourage early registration to their online betting site and mobile sports betting app in Ohio, leading global sportsbook operator Tipico is offering sports bettors in the Buckeye State the chance to get in on the action early via their free to play sports betting game.
Sports fans statewide can visit WinOhio.com to play a scratch-and-win contest through which they can earn sportsbook bonuses, free bets, and even an Ohio fan experience within the Tipico mobile app, which is available for both iOS and Android devices. Legal and regulated sports betting will launch in Ohio on January 1, 2023.
“‘Win Ohio’ is a call to action for the diehard Ohio sports fan,” Tipico U.S. CEO Adrian Vella said in a statement. “After the long-awaited decision to legalize sports betting, we’re thrilled to introduce Ohioans to a platform that shares their passion for wagering on sports and creates memorable, personalized experiences.
“We are on a mission to discover the most loyal fans in Ohio, and we look forward to providing them with the opportunity to compete for glory.”
The “Win Ohio” free-to-play game interface features four new gameplay opportunities every week: for NFL Thursday Night Football, College Saturday, NFL Sunday, and NFL Monday Night Football matchups. Users will accrue points on the Win Ohio contest leaderboard for each successful pick, which they can easily monitor on the contest homepage alongside their total winnings and entries.
Prizing throughout the contest period includes a $10 free bet earned for each week of participation and weekly bonuses distributed based on leaderboard placement, including $500 in Tipico bonus funds for the first-place leader, $250 for placing second, $100 for placing third, and $50 for each of the remaining competitors in the top 100.
In addition to earning bonuses and cash rewards, players will accrue entries into Tipico’s Grand Prize Sweepstakes, which rewards 10 lucky winners with exciting prizes showcasing the best Ohio has to offer, including luxury hotel stays; five-star dining experiences; premium tickets to Ohio sporting events; and VIP concert tickets. The prize package has a $1,500 value and can also be claimed in the form of Tipico bonus funds if desired by the winner.
