Sportsbook operator Tipico announced Tuesday that its new Ohio-oriented free-to-play game is now live in the state. Sports bettors at a statewide level can visit the Win Ohio website to play a scratch-and-win contest and earn sportsbook bonuses, free bets and win an Ohio fan experience within the Tipico mobile app.
Ohio is launching sports betting on January 1, 2023. To celebrate its expansion into the Buckeye State, Tipico’s Win Ohio statewide campaign, coming ahead of market debut, will “celebrate the platform launch” and reward sports bettors.
The Win Ohio free-to-play game interface features four new gameplay opportunities every week: for NFL Thursday Night Football, College Saturday, NFL Sunday, and NFL Monday Night Football matchups. Users will accrue points on the Win Ohio contest leaderboard for each successful pick, which they can monitor on the contest homepage, alongside their total winnings and entries.
Prizing throughout the contest period includes a $10 free bet earned for each week of participation and weekly bonuses distributed based on leaderboard placement, including $500 in Tipico bonus funds for the first-place leader, $250 for placing second, $100 for placing third, and $50 for each of the remaining competitors in the top 100.
In addition to earning bonuses and cash rewards, players will accrue entries into Tipico’s Grand Prize Sweepstakes, which rewards 10 lucky winners with prizes, including luxury hotel stays; five-star dining experiences; premium tickets to Ohio sporting events; and VIP concert tickets. The prize package is a $1,500 value and can also be claimed in the form of Tipico bonus funds if desired by the winner, notes the sportsbook.
