The Findlay Rotary Club heard from representatives of the Ohio Casino Control Commission on Monday. Executive Director Rick Anthony said that Ohio’s 4 casinos help bring money to Hancock County by paying 33% tax on their winnings.
According to the 2010 Census, Hancock County had a population of over 74,700 and showed signs of growth.
Director of Licensing and Investigations Matthew Oyster told the group that casinos have a lengthy application to fill out.
After being approved the casinos are monitored and regulated by the OCCC to make sure the games remain fair.
