Online Poker Legislation

Ohio could possibly pursue online poker legislation in the near future. In 2012 State Lottery Director, Dennis Berg acknowledged that the subject of online poker needed further investigation. This came on the heels of the 2011 Department of Justice decision in regard to the Federal Wire Act and its applicability to only sports betting

However for now the state of Ohio sits idle on the subject.
