More Than A Thousand People Ban Themselves At Ohio Gambling Sites
More than a thousand potential gamblers are now banning themselves from Ohio’s casinos and racinos as the state’s gambling industry expands.
The Ohio Casino Control Commission’s Voluntary Exclusion Program that began two years ago to help target problem gambling now includes more than 980 names. The Ohio Lottery oversees operations at the state’s racinos that feature horse racing tracks and slot machines and has more than 200 names on its list.
Experts say the voluntary program is a good step. But they say it probably only draws a small percentage of problem gamblers. People can ban themselves for a year, five years or life.
Ohio four casinos and five racinos are relatively new. The first ones opened in the state in 2012.
