Sports betting and platform provider, Amelco, has launched in the US state of Ohio, with its product live January 1st.
The supplier, offering what they claim to be the most comprehensive end-to-end platform in North America, has received regulatory approval for its full-service solution which currently spans 12 states, with two additional jurisdictions to be announced in the near future.
Over the New Year weekend, more than 11 million transactions were recorded across the state, with Cincinnati seeing 1.9 million of these and Columbus just over one million. Testament to the state’s potential, this number of transactions in Ohio was higher than New York’s over the same 48-hour period.
In total, there are currently 16 sportsbooks live in the Buckeye State, with the ultra-competitive market powered by the success of its sports teams, including the Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Guardians and the Cincinnati Bengals.
With Maryland and Massachusetts to also be added to their roster shortly, Amelco’s end-to-end solution spans bespoke trading, iGaming, retail, player account management and multiple data feeds.
Brandon Walker, Head of Amelco USA, says: “This is another major steppingstone in Amelco’s extensive plans for expansion in the US, and we look forward to bringing our offering to an increased audience of sports bettors.
“We expect excitement to only increase, and we are really interested to see what the numbers are going to look like over the course of the next few months. In terms of our product, no one offers a full service, end-to-end solution like we do at Amelco. We deliver everything under one roof which no other provider can do.”
