A lot of Ohio residents and officials are hoping that keno will solve the states budget deficit. Some of keno earnings will be allocated for education and health care in the state.
The Ohio Lottery said that it is only normal that keno will not meet the target for the first few months. Marie Kilbane said that they are expecting an improvement in the next few months.
The City Council decided a 1.5 Occupation tax for the Nebraska State Fair. The other half of the funding will be coming from the keno revenues.
The Hall County officials recently increased its tax to $100,000 for the Nebraska Fair. Profits from keno will also be allocated to the state fair.
The Hall County Board has voted in favor of a .3 tax increase for the Nebraska State Fair. Members say that this is only appropriate because there will be another half million coming from Keno.
The State Lotterys Keno sales are up by 5.4 percent for the current fiscal year. The main reason for this improvement is the Keno-to-Go games that launched in March 2008.
The Keno profits of Hall County were severely affected by a lot of things. Some of these reasons are the smoking ban and the sluggish economy of the state.
James Dostal plans to push for the Keno-to-Go game before the Northampton Council. He said that the City Council is not yet well-informed on the merits of the game when they voted earlier.
The state of Maryland is claiming that they are entitled to some of the profit from placing a multiplier to the keno games. Scientific Games still has a contract with the state when that happened.
