Just weeks remain until legal Ohio sports betting kicks off. In advance of that event, Ohio for Responsible Gambling has released some new content to help Ohioans form good gambling habits.

The campaign features a 30-second video that espouses the virtue of taking time to consider individual bets before placing them. Accompanying educational materials highlight other tips for safe gambling and connect readers to resources in Ohio.

Ohio responsible gambling content focuses on sports betting

Ohio for Responsible Gambling’s video emphasizes the fast pace of live sports and how gambling on those events can also be rapid.

This messaging is especially timely as legal Ohio sports betting starts on Jan. 1, 2023. Several sports betting apps like Caesars and FanDuel are already accepting account registrations so bettors can hit the ground running at midnight that day.

The advice of taking a pause to consider the risks and evaluate bankrolls is absolutely sound for responsible gambling. However, there are more tips that can help ensure Ohioans play safely.

Ohio for Responsible Gambling emphasizes other important pieces of advice as well.
