Ohio set to deny PlayUp licence for “potential illegal gambling activity”
| By Daniel O'Boyle
The Ohio Casino Control Commission said it plans to deny PlayUp’s licence application, after it discovered “potential illegal gambling activity by PlayUp”.
At the 14 December meeting of the Ohio Casino Control Commission, it revealed that it had notified PlayUp that it intends to deny its application for an online betting management service provider licence, which would allow it to offer an online product in the state.
The operator had received conditional approval for its licence, but the regulator said that, during its investigation of PlayUp’s suitability to hold a licence, “staff uncovered information regarding potential illegal gambling activity by PlayUp”.
