Bally Bet Sportsbook has arrived in Ohio! The iconic betting brand has partnered with Sinclair Broadcast Group’s regional sports networks to help advance its sportsbook offerings and launched in the Buckeye State in September 2023.

In this Bally Bet Sportsbook review, we’ll discuss the operator’s journey to Ohio, what Buckeye bettors can expect now that the bookmaker is live, and how to get started with the bookie.

The best promos on Bally Bet Sportsbook OH

Bally Bet Sportsbook has extremely limited Ohio betting bonus offerings, but they do have a loyalty program that can be beneficial; it can lead to bet credits, casino credits (in states where online gambling is legal - Ohio isn’t there yet), dining experiences, merchandise, and more at Bally’s in-person locations.

Outside of that, we hope Bally’s will consider adding some or all of the following options:

  • No-deposit bonuses: No-deposit bonuses are rare but rewarding. They involve getting bet credit to play at the sportsbook without having to make a deposit. You don’t even need money in your account to play.
  • Sign-up bonuses: Whether it’s a deposit match, a no-deposit bonus, bonus bets, or something new and innovative, a sign-up bonus or “welcome bonus” would automatically apply when you’re signing up with Bally Bets.
  • Daily & weekly profit boosts: Whether daily or weekly, profit boosts apply to a percentage of your winnings. For example, a 50% profit boost on $50 winnings would up your winning to $75 when you’re ready to cash out.
  • Parlay profit boosts: Parlay profit boosts are becoming more common at other sportsbooks in Ohio. Because parlays can be extremely lucrative when they hit, winnings with parlay profit boosts are usually capped at $100 on winnings, but they follow a similar mold to the daily and weekly boosts.
  • Bonus bets: Bonus bets are a variation on bet credit. Usually, they’re set at a predetermined amount (such as $10 or $25) and can either be added to an existing wager you’re about to place or used as their own play. Bonus bets aren’t withdrawable and aren’t calculated into the winnings payout.

The best sports leagues you can wager on using Bally Bet

Bally Bet offers 14 sports with varying markets in each category (for example, the NFL and college football). Here are some of the more popular options for Ohio bettors to consider:


NFL Betting sees more sports betting dollars than any other North American league. The Super Bowl in particular is one of the biggest single-game betting events in the world - in Ohio alone, an estimated $80-100 million was bet on Super Bowl LVII.


With the Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Guardians both representing the state, MLB betting rivals NBA betting for the second-most popular option in Ohio. Both teams are in extended World Series droughts, with Cincinnati’s most recent win coming in 1990 and Cleveland’s in 1948. Still, bettors in the Buckeye State are undeterred.


LeBron James’ departure the second time was a little less disheartening after bringing a championship to the Cleveland Cavaliers. As the only NBA team in the state, the Cavs have more unified statewide support.

College teams

Betting on college sports is allowed under Ohio state law, including on in-state collegiate teams. As the clock struck midnight and the first sports bets in the state could be placed, Ohio State’s kicker missed a field goal that would’ve sent the Buckeyes to the 2023 National Championship game.

Bally Bet OH banking options

Bally Bet’s OH banking options will mirror that which you find in other states. However, their accepted methods are noticeably more limited than other Ohio bookmakers. The deposit minimum with Bally Bet is $10. Withdrawal requests are processed within 24 hours, and payouts will reach your account within five business days after that


  • Debit card (Visa or Mastercard only)
  • E-Checks (VIP Preferred)

Customer support at Bally Bet Sportsbook Ohio

We hope you don’t ever find yourself in a position where customer service is needed. However, if you do, Bally Bet Sportsbook will likely already have an answer for you in their thorough FAQ section. Still, it’s not difficult to get in touch with more advanced support if you’re still struggling.

Here's the full list of support options for Ohioans betting with Bally Bet.

Live Chat: Available on a 24/7 basis
Email: support@ballybet.com
Phone number: 844 844 3238
Twitter: @BallyBet

Yes, Bally Bet Sportsbook is legal in Ohio. The operator was granted a license by the Ohio Casino Control Commission in December 2022, and after pausing its gambling operations in the summer of 2023, the bookmaker relaunched its platform in all states where Bally held a license in September of the same year.

The early indications are Bally Bet will have a retail location at Cleveland Browns Stadium, as well as online and betting app options; the even better news is there will be only one app rather than a state-specific option, so Ohioans won’t need to download a new app if they want to play while traveling out of state.

Our expert opinion on Bally Bet

In our expert opinion, Bally Bet is moving in the right direction to stand out in a competitive Ohio sports betting landscape. The mobile betting app is a great choice for novice sports bettors, the rewards program will unlock generous betting perks, and with a clutter-free interface, you'll be able to quickly and easily find the bets you want to play.

We particularly appreciate the professionalism of the customer service team and the commitment to making the sportsbook even more user-friendly. The overhauled version of the platform that was released in September 2023 is a major upgrade over the previous iteration, and the service reps are very responsive to user feedback.

Bally's could improve by expanding its list of payment methods, adding more live betting options to keep up with the offerings from other books, and making information about the sportsbook more readily available on the sportsbook website. The lack of available info on the site may be a red flag for some players, and the small list of banking methods could be an offputting hassle for bettors.

Our rating of Bally Bet Sportsbook Ohio


Welcome bonus
Payment options
Sportsbook app
Variety & features
Customer support

OH Betting has given Bally Bet Sportsbook Ohio an overall rating of 3 out of 5. The overall rating has been based on these factors:

  • Welcome bonus: Rating 3/5. The maximum amount of $100 as a second chance bet is one of the lowest offers in Ohio. However, it doesn't require as significant an upfront cost as some of the other bookmakers in the state.
  • Payment options: Rating 3/5. Bally Bet's extremely limited list of payment options for both withdrawals and deposits. This is an area that could really benefit from expansion to make things easier for players.
  • Sportsbook app: Rating 4/5. The sportsbook app features a simple but neat aesthetic that makes it easy to pick up and use. It isn't overly flashy, but it doesn't need to be. The purple and red design has a pleasant appeal.
  • Variety and features: Rating 3/5. The lack of promotions is a big drawback here. Still, Bally Bet's rewards program will be a great asset to regular users. There is a nice amount of more exotic wagers like round robins and teasers which aren't always as readily available on other platforms.
  • Customer support: Rating 4/5. Bally's rounds out the customer service options list with support through chat, email, over the phone, and social media via Twitter. Once the operator expands to have more web support available, such as FAQ pages and a promotions list, this score will increase to a 5.
