Fantasy Contest Licensure

Operator and Management Company Applications

To offer fantasy contests in Ohio, a person must obtain an operator license. Additionally, any organization managing the day-to-day operations of an operator may need to obtain a management company license. If you are an operator or management company seeking licensure, please fill out and submit the Fantasy Contest Operator and Management Company Application. Please read the instructions thoroughly and submit the application as directed. If additional appendices are needed, please use the appendix forms located on the Commission’s Fantasy Contests Forms and Appendices webpage. For more information on licensure requirements and standards, operator licensure, or management company licensure, please click the applicable link.

Duty to Update Information

If you are an operator or management company who has already applied for licensure or who has already received a license, please note that you are under a continuing duty to update the Commission regarding much of the information submitted in your application. To do so, please use the Commission’s Fantasy Contest Duty to Update Information Form and include any applicable appendices.
