Ohio: Columbus Crew, Tipico sportsbook sign long-term partnership Jacob Myers, The Columbus Dispatch · January 13, 2022 at 6:32 pm The Crew added another business partner with a long-term deal with sportsbook operator Tipico. Sports gambling is not yet legal in Ohio. However, Tipico will launch its mobile sports betting app once sports betting is legalized in the state, according to the club’s press release. “As they make their foray into Ohio, our long-term agreement with Tipico represents an exciting development for Crew supporters and sports fans in Central Ohio and throughout the state,” said Haslam Sports Group Chief Operating Officer David Jenkins in a statement. Gov. Mike DeWine signed House Bill 29 into law on Dec. 22, which made Ohio the 33rd state to legalize sports gambling.
