The company agreed under a settlement agreement announced Wednesday by the Ohio Casino Control Commission that it will withdraw its application for a mobile management services provider license and pay a $90,000 fine.

The settlement and penalty stem from the commission’s findings that PlayUp previously accepted wagers illegally from Ohioans using its slots+ product. The online product is no longer offered, but for a period starting in April 2015 PlayUp marketed it as a legal gambling game when it had no such status, according to the commission.
