The Ohio Casino Control Commission will be regulating Skill Games in Ohio soon. This commission has been in the works for years. Starting April 23rd, this commission will begin to regulate skill games.
 
"Ohio's law requires that the opportunity to win a prize in amusement games must be based on the skill of the player rather than a chance event. Prizes can be awarded, but the prizes cannot be cash, gift cards, plays on games of chance (such as slot machines), lottery tickets, bingo, firearms, tobacco or alcoholic beverages."

This is another reason to step up to the Gold Fusion Standard. With a no chance setting, and the ability to sell products, it is very compliant! Please see below link for the Skill-Based Amusement Machine (SBAM) Rules:

The information provided herein is not intended to be legal or compliance advice. Gold Fusion software products include multiple settings and licensee-selectable options that should be used only upon the advice of legal counsel who advises the end user licensee regarding how the licensee can comply with the end user's covenant of lawful operation in the jurisdiction where the software product is used. The end user licensee must not assume that all software products and all setting are lawful for use in all jurisdictions, or lawful for use in connection with all methods of retail operation. WE DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES TO THAT EFFECT.
