As we edge closer to New Year's Day (the official launch date for Ohio sports betting), we are keeping a very close eye on the best Ohio sports betting promos available to Ohioans. Right now, there are a bunch of registration offers up for grabs - but they'll disappear as soon as the clock strikes midnight on Jan. 1.

These registration offers will be replaced by alternative welcome bonuses and Ohio sports betting promos on Jan. 1. But if you sign up now, you put yourself in position to potentially grab both the registration offer and the welcome bonus (depending on the T&Cs of the operator in question).

Ohio Sports Betting Promos For Early Registration

If you sign up today, you can scoop up all of the best registration offers available on Ohio betting apps like DraftKings, BetMGM, Caesars Sportsbook and more. You don't have to restrict yourself to one betting operator. In fact, we recommend signing up for several accounts to allow you to shop for the best lines and odds when Ohio sports betting goes live.

Many Ohio operators are giving away bonuses like 'free bets' and 'second chance credits' to customers who sign up now. And for many of the Ohio sports betting promos, you don't even need to deposit to qualify. That essentially makes them freebies as the top Ohio betting apps compete for your business. Don't be shy to grab as many of them as possible while they are available!

Let's take a look at the available Ohio sports betting promos out there today and the relevant T&Cs for those Ohio sportsbook promos.

BetMGM Bonus Code BOOKIES

One of the top Ohio sports betting promos available right now is this deal from BetMGM Ohio: Use the promo code BOOKIES to get $200 in free bets upon signing up. Just complete your registration - no deposit required - and you unlock $200 in bet credits that will be dropped into your account on Jan. 1.

Hit 'Bet Now' on the link below to qualify for this offer and don't forget to enter the promo code BOOKIES when you sign up.
