The rules that will govern the game of keno were approved by Gov. Strickland. Some of the members of the lottery commission do not share the views of Gov. Strickland.
GTECH has been allegedly pushing for the implementation of keno in Ohio. The officials of the company decline to comment on the matter.
Omaha is currently thinking of keeping their own keno revenues if Douglas County will raise their property taxes. Mayor Fahey said that they have no plans to raise their property taxes.
Gov. Ted Strickland is pushing for the inclusion of keno games in the Ohio Lottery. He said that this will help the state regarding the budget deficit that they will have to face by next year.
Even though Gov. Strickland is a gaming critic, he still supports the expansion of gaming in Ohio with Keno. One of the reasons why is to help reduce the budget deficit for the coming fiscal year.
