Ohio Casinos, Poker and Pari-mutuel Gambling

Ohio casino gambling is synonymous with fun and entertainment. The urge to win fast money and live an enviable lifestyle pushes many a person to take the roller coaster ride, of emotions and ecstasy. There have been groups who have tried to legalize casino gambling in Ohio but in vain. But that hasn’t deterred the spirit of Ohioans to gamble. With online gambling, horse racing, bingo and neighboring state casinos, gambling has acquired even more prominence and patronage. The mention of a state name like Ohio brings into the mind one of the sought after gambling populace. The casino friendly state has hopes of raking in the sweepstakes by making Ohio a gambling paradise.

The state of Ohio has age old affection to gambling. The youth and teen gambling is also on the rise thanks to the feeling of making it big. If you visit a gambling joint in Ohio, you will have to believe the sense of enjoyment a person derives from gambling. The slots and the taverns wear an entertaining look of social hullabaloo and energetic enthusiasm. The tourists also mix and mingle with the natives for an interesting game of bingo, pari-mutuel and video poker. Also the gambling tournaments held in the state are widely cherished.

A lot of people, young and old visit casinos for ruling the sweepstakes and enjoying the pleasure of instant gratification to the riches. Nevertheless, many elderly persons look at casinos and video pokers as a means to socialize rather than plain gamble. The older populace and of course the people who are conscious of their savings do go to gambling centers to rake in that extra bit of money over their income. They look toward Ohio gambling as a means to enjoy themselves with fair amount of camaraderie and sweep stakes, without any serious consequences.

Irrespective of the place you are in, you are just about three-hour drive away from a gambling establishment. There are not too many casinos in the state of Ohio. So the folks have to hitch a ride to neighboring places like Michigan and West Virginia. Of course the Bingo is widely practiced in Ohio as an alternative way of gambling. My friend Ruth, an age old gambling enthusiast has raked in a huge amount of money through gambling. According to him, even though he has a lost a few thousand dollars, he is happy because the earnings that have come his way has been very satisfying. He says gambling is just like business, you lose some, you win some. He says that successful gambling is by virtue of an intangible force which is present in all of us- the instinct. He says that when it comes to gamble, one should go by his or her instinct and play with an alert mind. I wouldn’t dispute his opinions because he has seen it all and done it all. Even though he is one of the best ‘gamblers’ there are a lot of others like him in Ohio who have mastered the trick of gambling it the right way.

The Ohio people are mature enough to know that that gambling by itself is not bad, if one knows the power of self control. Everything good or bad takes a negative turn if you indulge in it excessively and recklessly. So in that practical sense, people in Ohio love their casinos, bingos and lotteries because they know to enjoy the pleasures of gambling in the right spirit.

Legalized gambling in Ohio has undergone a few changes. By passing HB 325 and SB 146, the Ohio General Assembly has revised the state of Ohio’s gambling laws. These amendments to the law became effective on September 30, 2004. The situation is changing for the better as the state has released its firm grip on gambling and allows room for gambling which has a fair exercise of skill rather than just luck.

Like most states in the US, the state of Ohio has maintained that people who indulge in gambling are aware of what they are getting into. For example if it is a lottery or a bingo competition, it is important that people are made known about the ticket prizes, the prize structure, the names and identity of the winner. Nothing has to be kept oblivious from the general public. Gambling in Ohio has acquired a sense of transparency which is quite appreciable.

Online gambling is a concern for law enforcement authorities as the credibility of the sites practicing gambling is questionable. But the Ohio government has laid certain guidelines and norms by which it ensures that vulnerable section of the population do not indulge in irresponsible gambling. Also the gambling laws exempt games which involve skill element in additional to luck, as illegal gambling. Take the example of crane games. These are coin-operated amusement devices that give the player an opportunity to win inexpensive goodies. The wholesale value of a prize may be not more than seven times the cost charged to play or $5, whichever is less. Operators installing the games in their establishments have to pay a one-time licensing fee to the state.

The state of Ohio is facing a budget shortfall and tax increases. So people are optimistic of casino gambling centers springing up in a major way in big cities. Also there are talks of setting up electronic slot machines at horse tracks close to Ohio. The state of Ohio could earn a lot of revenue through gambling. As it is people gamble online and visit other states like West Virginia and Indiana to gamble. It makes more sense if the money which is meant to be in Ohio remains there only. Look at the best part, the state save money on fuel and other expenses as people do not have to drive all the way to West Virginia and Las Vegas The other thing is that the money and dollars will remain within the state.

Ohio gambling is a passion that could be irresistible to the strong hearted Ohioans because they know that fortune favors the brave!
