Joining betPARX is a quick, simple process that will instantly allow you to claim the welcome bonus promo for Ohio players. Most users won’t need more than 10 minutes to get through registration. Here are the steps you’ll need to take to get started.

  1. Open the betPARX webpage in your browser or download the app.
  2. Click “Sign Up” to go to the registration page.
  3. Enter your email and create an account password.
  4. Enter your personal information, including your first and last name, birth date, cell phone number, the last four digits of your Social Security number, and your address.

The most effective way to take advantage of the BetPARX promotion in OH

The betPARX bonus offer includes $125 in Bonus Bets if your initial $10+ bet is a winner. The credit is applied in the form of five $25 bets spread out over five weeks (one bonus bet per week for that timeframe). The bets also must be used within seven days of issuance.

With that in mind, bonus bets can be used on any eligible wager type. You could either take a stab at crafting parlays with your bonus bets to go for a big payday or play it safe with some less risky bets to up your chances of a payout. Either way, the bonus bets are not eligible to be withdrawn for cash or calculated with your winnings.

When will my promo be activated?

The promo will be activated following a winning $10 wager. The $125 in Bonus Bets will be awarded over five weeks in five $25 installments.

How to troubleshoot if the BetPARX promo is not working?

If the betPARX promo isn’t working, the easiest things to do are to log out and then back into your account, and to power your device off and on again. If neither of those does the trick, you may need to get in touch with betPARX’s customer service. To do so, you can either use the chat feature in the app or on the site, or you can email ohsupport@betparx.com.

Pros and Cons of the current BetPARX promotion

While these pros and cons are specific to the current betPARX promotion, they shouldn’t necessarily sway your decision to sign up with the sportsbook. You may uncover things you enjoy outside of the welcome bonus, so don’t be afraid to explore and find what works for you.


  • The small upfront cost to qualify ($10 initial wager)
  • No promo code or opt-in needed when registering
  • Bet credits can be added to wagers or used as their own unique bets


  • $125 in Bonus Bets only applies if you win your first bet
  • Bonuses paid out over five weeks (one $25 bonus bet per week)
  • Bonus bet amount not included in winning payouts

Terms and conditions for the BetPARX promo in Ohio

  • You must be 21 years or older to participate in the promo.
  • Bonus bets may not be withdrawn for cash and are not calculated in winning payouts.
  • Bonus bets are only earned if your initial bet wins. This is very different than most other books, as they often award credit if the bet does not win.
  • Bet credits must be used within seven days or they will expire.
  • If the initial bet is voided or a push occurs, no bet credit is earned.
  • Any attempts to abuse or manipulate the promotion will result in disqualification and possible account closure.

Best bonuses on betPARX Sportsbook OH

BetPARX Sportsbook’s bonuses for OH players are rather limited. Expansion of promo offerings would likely grow its user base. Should they choose to go that route, here are some of the best bonuses betPARX sportsbook should consider:

  • No deposit bonuses: No deposit bonuses in Ohio are a bettor's best friend. They award bet credit without having to fund your account. This bonus is rare across sportsbooks, but when it comes into play, you should always take advantage.
  • Sign-up bonuses: Also known as “welcome bonuses,” sign-up bonuses are automatically applied when you create your account. They can be some combination of the bonuses listed here or be something different, such as odds boosts or deposit matches.
  • Daily & weekly profit boosts: Profit boosts are becoming a more popular option across Ohio sportsbooks as they can increase bettor payouts for the given time period. Usually, daily and weekly profit boosts are calculated as a percentage of all winning bets for the timeframe and added to the payout.
  • Parlay profit boosts: As with the daily and weekly profit boosts, parlay profit boosts only apply to winning wagers. Because some parlays are already very profitable with even a small financial risk on a winning bet, this type of bonus is usually capped at $100 by most bookmakers.
  • Bonus bets: BetPARX’s current offer includes bonus bets. They’re a form of bet credit at a pre-specified amount (in this case $25) that can either be played as its own wager or added to another bet while playing as a way to increase potential earnings.

The betPARX betting app in Ohio

BetPARX has generated a lighter betting handle than some other Ohio sportsbooks due to launching more than a month after the state first went live with sports betting. In addition, the operator launched after the Super Bowl, one of the biggest annual sporting events in the U.S. That alone could’ve led to a huge spike in handle and revenue, but even without it, betPARX has passed several other OH bookies in those categories.

The betPARX sportsbook app is specific to OH players, so if you’re traveling to other states in the region like Pennsylvania or Michigan where the bookie is also operating, you’ll need to download that state’s app to play. The Ohio betting app is still very new and can only be played on iOS devices.

Downloading the betPARX app on iOS

  1. Go to the App Store and search “betPARX OH Sportsbook.”
  2. Tap “Get” then “Install.” You may need to log in with your Apple ID and password at this step.
  3. Wait for the download to complete, then log in with your betPARX credentials to start playing.

Top sports leagues you can gamble on using betPARX

BetPARX has markets set up for the top North American and international leagues with many subsets along the way. Additionally, betting on collegiate athletics is allowed under Ohio state law, including for in-state teams. Here are some of the more popular leagues you can gamble on using betPARX in Ohio:

  • NFL: Ohio is home to two NFL teams - the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals. Neither has reached the glory of winning a Super Bowl, but both teams remain competitive in the AFC North division.
  • NBA: With an NBA title in 2016, the Cleveland Cavaliers ended decades of heartbreak by mounting a spectacular comeback from a 3-1 series deficit against the heavily favored Golden State Warriors to win the only championship in club history.
  • MLS: The MLS is surprisingly popular in Ohio, and once again, there are two teams in the league within the state border. This time, it’s the Columbus Crew and FC Cincinnati. Columbus was one of the initial members of the MLS when the league was formed in 1993; Cincinnati joined in 2019. The Crew won league titles in 2008 and 2020.
  • MLB: If you looked at the other sections here and guessed Ohio had two MLB teams, you guessed correctly. The Cincinnati Reds and the Cleveland Guardians represent the National League and American League, respectively. Both have storied histories but have been in extended championship droughts; Cincinnati’s last World Series win came in 1990 while Cleveland has been without a title since 1948.
  • PGA Tour: The PGA Tour is one of the principal backers of the betPARX sportsbook and helped the operator obtain its Ohio license. The Memorial Tournament in Dublin, OH, was the local sponsor after the Tour made betPARX a betting partner across the country. Ohio has hosted multiple U.S. Opens and PGA Championships throughout the Tour’s history.

betPARX OH banking options

BetPARX has a wide range of deposit and withdrawal options compared to other Ohio sportsbooks due in part to their casino background. Because those options were needed at betPARX casinos, the company already had arrangements in place with additional providers to cover those banking channels.

Most withdrawals take 1-4 business days, though some methods (such as PayPal) can take a matter of hours. If you’re requesting a check by mail for your payout, please allow up to 10 days for the check to reach you.

Our expert opinion of betPARX Sportsbook

BetPARX Sportsbook is still playing catch-up with other Ohio bookmakers but we think it will continue to make an impact across the state. The website and app layout are smooth and intuitive to operate with a sleek design.

In particular, we appreciate the reliability of betting payouts and customer service. BetPARX was very responsive when we tested their support channels for this review, and with many different deposit and withdrawal options, financing your account is a breeze.

While we do have a few points of concern, such as the shortage of promotions and the lack of 24/7 chat support, we also understand that some of those issues are due to the smaller base of Ohio players who regularly play with betPARX.

Furthermore, we would like to see an app released for Android devices which should also help attract more players. As the bookmaker grows in popularity and brand recognition, we expect these areas will continue to improve.

Our rating of BetPARX Sportsbook Ohio


Welcome bonus
Payment options
Sportsbook app
Variety & features
Customer support

OH Betting has given betPARX Ohio an overall rating of 3.5 out of 5. The overall rating has been based on these factors:

  • Welcome bonus - Rating 3/5: BetPARX went with the interesting approach of only granting a welcome bonus to players who win their initial wager. Most of the time, the bonus only goes to players who lose their first bet, or there is an outright deposit match in some capacity. The $125 in Bonus Bets coming in the form of smaller $25 bonus bets over five weeks can be offputting to some players as well.
  • Payment options - Rating 5/5: With one of the highest numbers of deposit and withdrawal methods, betPARX earns high marks for their payment options. Transactions are handled quickly and in some cases are available the same day the withdrawal request is made.
  • Sportsbook App - Rating 3/5: Not having an app available for Android players is a concern, and iOS users have reported some app clunkiness along the way. We expect both areas to see major strides as betPARX continues to develop across Ohio.
  • Variety & features - Rating 4/5: BetPARX offers 17 sports markets with many leagues in those categories. There are daily odds boosts for returning players and several longer-term boosts as well.
  • Customer support - Rating 4/5: There is a reasonable amount of information available on FAQ pages on the site and in the app. Chat is not available 24/7, and there aren’t support channels set up through social media.
