GeoComply has been issued a conditional license by the Ohio Casino Control Commission (OCCC) to supply its geolocation and ID verification compliance services in the state.
In total, 10 operator licenses and four supplier licenses have been granted by the commission as the Buckeye State gets ready to launch its regulated sports betting market on January 1, 2023.
“We are delighted to get our license approved early in the process,” commented Lindsay Slader, SVP of Compliance at GeoComply.
“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 2.”
Operators must submit their plans to the OCCC and receive approval by November 2 if they wish to begin accepting wagers on the betting market’s universal start date.
KYC service providers wishing to work in Ohio must obtain a supplier license. GeoComply’s conditional supplier license covers its geolocation services and IDComply product which, at this time, is the only age and identity verification service licensed in the region.
Earlier this month, GeoComply published data on the geolocation checks made at NFL stadiums during the first two weeks of the 2022 season, revealing State Farm Stadium, the site of this season’s Super Bowl, was near the top of its transaction volume analysis.
