Elys Game Technology Corp, an interactive gaming and sports betting technology company, announced that the Company and its partner, Wright Bet, have surpassed 100 host locations signed up for the Company’s land-based sportsbook services in the state of Ohio. The Company’s expected January 2023 launch of sports wagering in the state of Ohio is subject to regulatory approval, and all required licenses must be approved by the Ohio Casino Control Commission.
Michele Ciavarella, Executive Chairman of Elys Game Technology, said: “We are extremely pleased with the momentum that we are experiencing among retail establishments looking to provide their customers with our proven, best-in-class, end-to-end sportsbook solution. While attending the Ohio Bar Owners Association trade show yesterday, we productively displayed and demonstrated our cutting-edge ‘Build-your-bet’ technology. Our solution offers hosts the added edge of providing mobile access for players to compare markets and prepare their wagers off-site before coming into the host location to place their bet.”
“We believe that the bet velocity advantage of this feature could be a win-win for the hosts and players, as it could generate a new stream of revenue while providing an engaging product and service for their current customers, and potentially helping to build their businesses by drawing new customers interested in the sportsbook solution to their venue. Bars and restaurants are ideal locations for our sportsbook solution. As customers gather to enjoy food and beverages, the sportsbook adds an exciting way for them to enjoy watching their favorite teams play. We plan to continue to aggressively develop our sales pipeline with additional bars, restaurants, and other retail establishments to implement our sportsbook solution around the country.”
