Amelco goes live in Ohio

Amelco has confirmed that it has gone live in the state of Ohio, with its product live since January 1.

The supplier has received regulatory approval for its full-service solution which currently spans 12 states, with two additional jurisdictions to be announced in the near future.

This landmark deal represents a significant milestone for Amelco, with some of its strongest ever go-live numbers recorded in just three weeks of operating in the Buckeye State.

Over the New Year weekend, over 11 million transactions were recorded overall across the state with Cincinnati seeing 1.9 million of these and Columbus just over a million.

Testament to the state’s potential, the number of transactions over that weekend in Ohio was even higher than New York’s over the same 48-hour period.

In total, there are currently 16 sportsbooks live in the Buckeye State, with the ultra-competitive market powered by the extensive success of its sports teams, including the Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Guardians and the Cincinnati Bengals.

With Maryland and Massachusetts to also be added to the provider’s roster shortly, Amelco’s end-to-end solution spans bespoke trading, iGaming, retail, player account management and multiple data feeds, making it North America’s most comprehensive platform.

Brandon Walker, head of Amelco USA, said: “This is another major steppingstone in Amelco’s extensive plans for expansion in the US, and we look forward to bringing our offering to an increased audience of sports bettors.

“We expect excitement to only increase, and we are really interested to see what the numbers are going to look like over the course of the next few months. In terms of our product, no one-offers a full service, end-to-end solution like we do at Amelco. We deliver everything under one roof which no other provider can do.”
