The Ohio Lottery Commission has the authority to offer sports wagering, but it's too soon to say whether it will do so, the lottery's director told board members during the commission's monthly meeting on Monday.
"That's our first blush look at it," Dennis Berg said in addressing the board.
However, Berg noted that the Gov. John Kasich is currently not looking to expand gambling, and whether Ohio moves forward with sports wagering as part of the lottery may not be decided until the next administration.
Kasich is in his final year as governor.
