September 28, 2022 (Vancouver, BC):

GeoComply is the first and only geolocation and ID verification services compliance supplier to be awarded a conditional license by the Ohio Casino Control Commission.

The Commission granted 10 operator licenses and four supplier licenses as it works towards launching regulated sports betting on January 1, 2023.

GeoComply’s SVP of Compliance Lindsay Slader: “We are delighted to get our license approved early in the process. Compliance deadlines are coming quickly and we are in the strongest position to ensure our customers meet the requirements and submit complete and final geolocation procedures by November 2nd.”

The OCCC has informed prospective operators that submitting plans to the Commission and getting them approved by the November 2nd deadline is required in order to begin accepting bets by the January 1st Universal Start Date.
