Ohio has decided to regulate the skill game market. They will be identifying several different categories of Skill and ruling out the games of chance. 
 
From one of the below articles: 
 
Here are three skill-game categories: 
 
A - Games that do not enable a payer to receive a prize as a reward with the exception of free replays (pinball and arcade-style games). 
 
B - Games where a player uses skill to obtain a price wholly contained within the machine (crane and claw machines).
 
C- Games where a player would redeem tickets, tokens or vouchers awarded from the machine to obtain a prize (Dave and Busters, Chuck E Cheese). 
 
NOTE: This movement, which has been under way for several years, does not regulate or eliminate the No Chance feature as the bill only identifies Chance, or Skill. 
 
The Gold Fusion with Full Disclosure completely eliminates the element of Chance.
