to Act on Skill Games
October 15, 2007
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Ohio General Assembly
is preparing to act against skilled gaming. The proposal will likely
prohibit all cash payments from the devices, and will establish
$10.00 as the maximum value of any non-cash prizes awarded. The
legislation, which essentially mirrors administrative rules promulgated
by Attorney General Marc Dann, is supported in both chambers and
tentatively indorsed by Governor Ted Strickland.
The Ohio Coin Games Association, according to the Dayton Daily News,
has produced a study claiming that banning Tic-Tac-Fruit alone will
cost Ohio 1,848 jobs and over $9,500,000.00 in annual taxes.
