Schuring: Casino Control Begins Formulating Rules for Ohio Sports Gaming

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – There’s a lot of work to be done to get the extensive state sports gaming operation up and running.

But that work has started.

The Ohio Casino Control Commission which is overseeing most of the operation is drafting the rules.

They hope to have them done sometime this Spring.

All the involved entities will be able to apply for a license at that time.

But all those casinos, sports teams, the Hall of Fame down to the bars and restaurants will have the same start date and time for accepting that first bet.

State Senator Kirk Schuring is confident that date and time will be well before January 1 of 2023.

The governor signed the legislation just before Christmas.
