Ohio Casinos

Ohio voters passed a statewide referendum in November 2009 to allow one casino in four cities: Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus and Toledo. All of the casinos are now open.

Additionally, Ohio Governor Ted Strickland signed an executive order authorizing video lottery terminals to be allowed at seven horse tracks throughout the state. The VLTs will be regulated by the Ohio Lottery Commission and as of August 2013, only two tracks had the VLTs in operation, Scioto Downs and Thistledown.

All of the other tracks are expected to have their machines in operation by late 2013. Call ahead to each track before visiting to be sure they have their VLTs in operation.
