Queen City Gaming Entertainment Inc. informed that it has the state’s consent to circulate petitions for a proposal to build a slot-machine parlor. The group wants the Ohio Constitution to change and allow slot parlors at the state’s horse tracks and in two sites in Cleveland and one in Cincinnati.
The Ohio Learn and Earn Committee, that submitted a competing proposal, has already gathered about 200,000 signatures, according to spokesman David Hopcraft. Queen City Entertainment needs 323,000 valid signatures to make the November ballot.
Experts are concerned that two slot proposals in the November ballot could confuse voters and harm both projects.
