Mike Kallmeyer visited with Sen. Niraj Antani, R-Miamisburg, to talk about how close Ohio is to embracing sports betting and two pieces of similar legislation in the Ohio House and Senate.
"The bills, both of them, while having some differences, in general allow sports betting in three places,” said Antani. “First, is in an online mobile application on your phone, on the internet through a DraftKings, Fanduel or Barstool Sports. The second place is in a casino/racino or at a sports stadium; this is your traditional sports books. Think a bar with TVs and the different odds being displayed and you're going to go up to a counter and place a bet. The third place is, and this is still being worked out, is on a lottery machine at a bar or restaurant."
