Commission to consider sports betting license Wednesday for Austintown's Hollywood Gaming
This week, the Ohio Casino Control Commission is scheduled to consider licensing Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley to offer sports betting at the Austintown venue or on an app.
The Commission's Wednesday morning agenda is licensing Youngstown Real Estate Ventures LLC, which has applied for Type A and Type B Sports Gaming Proprietor and Management Services Proprietor licenses; a Type A license allows the holder to offer sports gaming via a computer website or mobile application.
A Type B license would allow Hollywood Gaming to offer sports gaming at the Austintown location.
Hollywood Gaming Mahoning Valley's website is already promoting a coming partnership with Barstool Sportsbook that would allow bets to be placed at the venue on Route 46 or through Barstool's App.
A survey on Hollywood Gaming's website asks visitors which sports they are interested in.
