Tipico partnership with BigPlay

Sportsbook operator Tipico has announced its partnership with Cleveland-based entertainment network BigPlay, becoming the presenting sponsor of BigPlay’s live shows and streaming programs. To mark the occasion, Cleveland Browns Quarterback Bernie Kosar placed the first legal sports bet on the Tipico platform at midnight on January 1, 2023.

Kosar, a Super Bowl XXVIII winner and college football national champion, placed a $19,000 moneyline wager on the Cleveland Browns to win their Week 18 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The wager was made in honor of Kosar’s jersey number (19), which he wore while playing for the Browns. The partnership between Tipico and BigPlay will also include sponsorship of the BigPlay VIP Player Lounge and Studio at Burke Lakefront Airport in Cleveland, which will be a popular spot for high profile sports personalities and athletes.
