The Ohio Casino Commission approved 19 Type C Sports Gaming Host licenses in the Valley today. More than 300 were approved, according to Jessica Frank, communications director for the Casino Commission.

Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course received approval for a Type A and B license. Still, Frank told 21 News that the commission batch-approved several Type A1 and Type B licenses but added this approval is only the first step in a multi-step process, including compliance approval and service provider partner approval.

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.
