The Ohio Lottery Commission has amended certain rules that were adopted last year relating to video lottery terminals (VLTs) at horse racing tracks.
- Elimination of the requirement that only individuals 21 and older would be permitted in the ‘area of the slots.’ Other rules still in effect require you to be 21 or older to play the slots;
- Elimination of the requirement that horse racing tracks send at least 10% of their contracts related to VLTs to minority contractors;
- Elimination of the requirement that horse racing tracks sign at least 50% of VLT-related contracts with Ohio-based companies or that 50% of their employees be local residents.
The amended rules will now go to the Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review (JCARR).
