Betr Launches in Ohio

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

After previously having launched in a free-to-play model, micro betting site Betr has announced that they've begun accepting real money wagers in the state of Ohio, after the sportsbetting industry officially launched there on January 1st.

Betr, which is backed by social media star Jake Paul, officially began accepting the wagers after a short soft launch period. The product will be available in mobile form, with iOS and Android apps available. Betr lets customers bet on very specific events during matches, like the outcome of a plate appearance in football, or the outcome of a specific drive during a football game.

The company also revealed that they're going to be offering a number of promotions, with the first one running through Super Bowl Sunday. That promotion will pay out $1 million who hits 30 qualifying microbes in a row. If no one is able to get 30 in a row, the company will pay out $50,000 to the player with the longest streak of applicable bets.

Betr Founder and CEO Joey Levy commented on the launch of the service, saying: "We are thrilled to launch our real money betting business at Betr in Ohio. This launch marks the beginning of our gradual, methodical approach to state-by-state expansion where we will take the time necessary to discover and validate product-market-fit of our highly differentiated product experience to ensure we scale in a profitable manner.

"This launch also sets a U.S. online sports betting record for the fastest launch from company founding to a fully licensed and regulated real money betting product, speaking to the capabilities of the Betr team to execute quickly and efficiently."

Jake Paul also commented, noting: "I couldn't be happier that my home state of Ohio is the first to receive access to Betr's real money gaming product. People are going to love watching and rooting for bets tied directly to their favorite players, whether it's a Donovan Mitchell 3-pointer, a Ja'Marr Chase 50-yard bomb, or a Jose Ramirez home run. Betr makes every game more fun by adding these stakes throughout. Download today and bet responsibly!"
