This is an expected dip for the heavily criticized Ohio Lottery sports betting kiosks. The lack of US and international sporting events makes July a difficult month for all sportsbooks, and the Buckeye State kiosk providers and their hosts didn’t buck that trend in July.
July revenue was also down, with the five sports betting kiosk proprietors earning $92,544 in July revenue. The Ohio Lottery cut was $36,283, with $16,239 in unclaimed funds reported during the seventh month of legalized Ohio sports betting.
