Kroger announces locations that will offer sports betting in 2023
CINCINNATI (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER) - Starting next year, sports betting will be legal in Ohio. With that in mind, grocery stores like Kroger, bars, casinos, restaurants and other locations around the state are sending in their applications, hoping to take advantage of the opportunity.
In 2021, Gov. Mike DeWine signed the bill into law, approving sports betting to begin. And in June of this year, the Ohio Casino Control Commission announced that the state’s sports betting program would have a universal start date of Jan. 1, 2023.

The law will allow both online and brick and mortar sports betting to take place, with betting available at a number of locations once it goes into effect. Locations like grocery stores fall under Ohio’s “Type C” category.
Sports betting in Ohio: What is a ‘Type C’ location?
Before applying to the Casino Commission, Type C applicants first need a recommendation from the Ohio Lottery. To be considered a Type C applicant, a location must hold both a valid liquor permit and lottery sales agent license. It must also have a current recommendation for licensure from the lottery and needs to be a for-profit corporation or association.
Below is a list of the 13 Kroger locations around Greater Cincinnati on the pre-approved Type C sports gaming list, as of July 22. In response to The Enquirer’s request for comment, a spokesperson from Kroger said there was nothing more to share at this time.
