Tipico Becomes Official Sponsor of BigPlay in Ohio
Sports betting and casino games provider Tipico has inked a sponsorship agreement with Cleveland-based sports and entertainment network BigPlay.
Under the terms of the deal, Tipico will become the official sponsor of the entertainment network’s live shows and streaming programs. The sportsbook operator will also sponsor BigPlay’s VIP Player Lounge and Studio at Burke Lakefront Airport in Cleveland.
The two brands entered the partnership to celebrate the launching of Ohio’s newly regulated sports betting market.
We couldn’t think of a better match than Tipico to be our exclusive partner. As we focus on elevating sports media across Ohio, Tipico is working to create the ultimate sports betting experience. We are proud to have our talent engage with a sportsbook that is truly dedicated to our fans and listeners, and together we will provide the great state of Ohio with unparalleled action in 2023 and beyond.
The partnership already saw Cleveland Browns Quarterback and BigPlay host Bernie Kosar place the first legal wager on the Tipico Sportsbook platform at midnight on January 1. Kosar wagered $19,000 on the Cleveland Browns to win their upcoming NFL game against Pittsburgh on Sunday, January 8.
Partnering with one of the fastest growing live sports content networks on the internet is a natural extension of our goal to captivate the diehard, impassioned fan bases across the Buckeye State. We are thrilled to have the first Tipico bet in Ohio placed by Cleveland football legend and BigPlay host Bernie Kosar to commence a successful and long-lasting presence in the state of Ohio.
