Please join our fantasy contest mailing list if you would like to receive updates regarding fantasy contest regulation.
Oversight of fantasy contests was granted to the Ohio Casino Control Commission by the Ohio General Assembly with the passage of House Bill 132 of the 132nd General Assembly. The law gives the Commission jurisdiction over all those involved with fantasy contests, including the ability to license, regulate, investigate and penalize fantasy contest operators, and also provides for a number of consumer protections.
The administrative rules for the regulation of fantasy contests took effect Tuesday, September 3. License applications may be submitted electronically to the Commission.

Pursuant to Section 3 of HB 132 of the 132nd General Assembly, those operators that were offering contests in Ohio when the bill took effect (March 23, 2018), needed to submit their license applications to the Commission no later than October 3 in order to continue operating uninterrupted. These operators have until December 2 to submit the internal procedures sought in response to Question 14 of the application.
Further updates and information will be posted in the coming weeks.
