Sportsbook operator Tipico announced Wednesday it has received approval to launch operations from the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission and that it is now live and accepting bets in the Hawkeye State. This marks the fourth US state for the brand, following launches in New Jersey, Colorado, and Ohio.
To celebrate this latest expansion and entry into the mid-west region of the United States, Tipico is offering Iowa bettors a variety of sign-up promotions and cash offers, including a $250 deposit match and various offers of free bets, which are now available in the app or at the operator's website.

Adrian Vella, CEO of Tipico USA, said: "We are thrilled to grow our footprint and give Iowa customers access to our propriety product and competitive offering. Iowa betters can use a straightforward product with fast deposits and withdrawals, experience cutting-edge functionality in Live betting, SGP+ with wide coverage on player props, and can cash out anytime— including partial cash-out capabilities."
"To top it off, Tipico's functionality is run from within the US with customer service based in New Jersey," the CEO added.
The Tipico Sportsbook mobile app was built on proprietary end-to-end technology in December 2020, offering "a unique single, unified log-in experience." Iowa-based sports bettors can now download the app via the Apple and Google Play stores to place wagers across a wide variety of sports and their teams.
Tipico's entry into Iowa is the latest in a series of recent accomplishments for the sportsbook. In July 2021, the company launched a partnership marking Tipico as Gannett's exclusive sports betting and iGaming provider, with exposure across the USA Today Sports Media Network.
Additionally, Tipico partnered with Colorado Governor Jared Polis to announce the opening of a Tipico technology hub in Denver and announced online market access in Iowa and Indiana through an agreement with Caesars Entertainment. The brand has still to launch in the latter market.
And as part of its growth strategy for the newly regulated market of Ohio, Tipico became the official Sports Betting Partner of the Major League Soccer club Columbus Crew, and entered the state on January 1, with additional partnerships with AEG Presents.
