The Ohio Casino Control Commission is due to consider licensing Hollywood Gaming in Mahoning Valley to offer sports betting at its Austintown venue or on an app this week

The commission’s agenda Wednesday morning includes licensing Youngstown Real Estate Ventures LLC, which has applied for both Type A and Type B Sports Gaming Proprietor and Management Services Proprietor licenses.

A Type A license allows the holder to offer sports gaming via a computer website or mobile application.

A Type B license would allow Hollywood Gaming to offer sports gaming at its Austintown location.

The Hollywood Casino Mahoning Valley website is already promoting an upcoming partnership with Barstool Sportsbook that will allow bets on Route 46 or at the venue via the Barstool app.

A survey on Hollywood Gaming’s website asks visitors what games they are interested in.
