OCCC Investigates Illegal Gaming, Awaits Passage of MBR Proposal

Despite the passage of legislation designed to shut down Internet cafes in the state, operators have resurfaced under the guise of "skill-based" games, prompting Ohio Casino Control Commission investigations, officials said Wednesday.

Currently, the commission has around three dozen open investigations into illegal gaming operations, OCCC Spokeswoman Tama Davis said. Such schemes can include the operation of unlicensed slot machines, cash payouts or prize payouts in excess of $10.
