The Ohio Casino Control Commission has the responsibility to ensure the integrity of casino gaming, skill-based amusement machines and fantasy contests by licensing, regulating, investigating and enforcing state laws.
The Ohio Casino Control Commission is a bipartisan regulatory body made up of seven Commissioners, an Executive Director and supporting staff that provides oversight of the casino gaming industry in Ohio.
Casino gambling was approved by Ohio voters in 2009 with passage of a constitutional amendment. The amendment approved four free-standing casinos to be located at designated locations in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo.
The Commission was created in 2011 following the passage of the Casino Control Law (Revised Code Section 3772). The Commission is authorized to license, regulate, investigate and exercise jurisdiction over all persons participating in casino gaming.
Administrative rules and resolutions adopted by the Commission establish the standards and procedures for casino operators, vendors and licensed key and gaming employees. Administrative rules inform the public how the Commission will conduct its business and provide the public with an opportunity to respond by providing public comment through the Common Sense Initiative Office or by attending a public hearing.
