Governor Mike DeWine has criticized sports betting companies that advertise to younger audiences.

Just two days after legal sports betting began in Ohio, Gov. Mike DeWine is blaming companies for illegally advertising to young audiences.

Ohio law prohibits sports betting companies from advertising to anyone under the legal age of 21 to bet on sports here. But at least two have already crossed the line, according to the Ohio Casino Control Board, which regulates sports betting.

“Companies that have been doing large-scale advertising should be aware that they are being monitored very closely by the governor and the casino governing board,” DeWine said in the bill signed Tuesday. “At least a few times I believe they’ve already crossed the line. My message to them is this is not acceptable in Ohio.”
