The OCCC shared with PlayUp, the mobile management services provider for JACK Cleveland Casino, that it plans to deny its mobile management services provider license. The commission’s issue stems from PlayUp “accepting illegal wagers” on its slots+ product.

PlayUp plans to take advantage of its right to a hearing with the OCCC, and the hearing will likely occur next month.

“We cannot comment on the licensing process of other operators in the state,” a spokesperson for JACK Cleveland Casino said
