BetJack has started a contest for Ohio sports betting fans, which will give them a chance to win tickets for several upcoming major basketball events, without the need for real money bets. The contest launch is in anticipation of Ohio’s commercial market opening.
Ohio residents can win tickets to several local games by wagering free tokens on BetJack's Training Camp. Tickets up for grabs include the Big 10 Championship in Indianapolis, Ohio State against University of Michigan, Cleveland Cavaliers against the Los Angeles Lakers, Crosstown Shootout and 12 Days of Parlays.
Jack Entertainment SVP of Sports and Digital Gaming Adam Suliman said offering fans access to ticket prizes is one of many reasons for Ohio players to be excited about next year’s regulated sports betting market launch.
He commented: "These giveaways provide Ohio sports fans with another reason to be excited about sports betting.
"They can practice using Ohio's sports betting app and maybe score some great tickets to see their favorite local teams."
Players do not have to win any bets to be eligible for ticket prizes. Bettors can win simply by placing a wager with their tokens on the mobile betting platform.
Sports betting in Ohio will launch January 1, 2023. State lawmakers passed House Bill 29 toward the end of 2021, setting statewide legalized sports betting in motion.
During Responsible Gambling Education Month, which is supported by the American Gaming Association, Ohio for Responsible Gambling encouraged state residents to take advantage of educational resources about responsible gambling.
The organization highlighted risk factors associated with problem gambling.
