AGA maps out Ohio gaming figures

The American Gaming Association has released a study regarding the revenue and impact of casino gaming in the US state of Ohio.

The findings debuted during a roundtable discussion at the Miami Valley Gaming racino as part of the association’s “Get to Know Gaming” campaign, which aims to educate local leaders about gambling’s role in 40 states across the country.

The research shows that between Ohio’s 11 commercial gambling sites (four casinos and seven racinos), there are 19,953 jobs provided and $804m in wages, along with $594m in taxes paid out each year. In terms of revenue, the study revealed that the gambling spots have provided $3.6bn in economic activity in Ohio.
