Governor Ted Strickland signed House Bill 177 into law this morning effectively outlawing “‘skill?based’ amusement machines that provide cash payouts or prizes worth more than $10.”

The Dayton Daily News is reporting that a “Cleveland-based group wants to build a $600 million casino resort off Interstate 71 in Clinton County” and they are “are expected to propose ballot language for a statewide constitutional amendment legalizing a single casino.”
And, if you can’t wait for that to happen- you’ll be happy to hear that West Virginia’s Mountaineer Race Track & Gaming Resort just opened a 37-table poker room. Mountaineer is about an hour a half from Cleveland.
