Skill games in Ohio

This morning, I am going out to do some physical research concerning skill games here in Ohio.

At our local mini mall, there is a place where you can go to play skill games, or so I have heard and I also hear that these games include some slot games.

I have never been to this place before but have heard that the games do pay out if you should happen to win. I will come back tomorrow and let you all know how this works, what the games include, how they hit, and whether or not you really do get paid when you win.

I am looking forward to this bit of research plus, who knows, if they really do pay out, I may come home a winner.

Re: Skill games in Ohio

Well, I hope you win big bartongrl1, during your quest in searching for winning on skill games around your neck of the woods.

About the only types of games we can play here in the South's bible-belt are online games, and most of those we can't play for real money.

I feel like a stick-in-the-mud when it comes to playing games down here...

Oh yeah, there are places like Chucky Cheese where you can buy tokens to play games and then collect tickets to buy trinkets with (so much fun, right?).

Re: Skill games in Ohio

Well, I made the trip to the mall and located the place in question only to find that it has been closed. I have to wonder if this isnt because of the upcoming casinos in Ohio and the fact that there will probably, in the future, be satellite gambling places coming into being. That is something I would really like to see happen as it would bring in even more revenue for our state.

West Virginia has many satellite gambling places you can play slots at. I can think of about 20 or so just in our general area, or about 50 miles within my home.

Having the satellite gambling places would really be nice because all of the casinos that will be built here in Ohio will be too far to drive to, at least 150 miles or more.

Another thing I have been hearing lately is that an offer of $10M has been made to the owner of our mall and the word is out that this offer was made by someone interested in putting in a casino there. Only time will tell.

Re: Skill games in Ohio

You are so lucky bartongrl1, to have casinos so close to you. Well, other than driving 150 miles.

I think our closest casino is some 130-150 miles away and it takes at least 2 1/2 hours to drive there and about 1 1/2 tanks of gas.

If it wasn't for our bills strapping us down, we'd be visiting the casino more often (like we had in the past).

I surely hope they will build a small casino closer to you, that way you won't have to travel so far to have a little fun on the slot machines.

Re: Skill games in Ohio

Right now, our closest casino is 10.2 miles from my house and if the mall gets sold and a casino should happen to be put in there, that would cut the milage in half to just a little over 5 miles.

Its nice having a casino close to home but there are sometimes that it isnt so nice. Its too easy to just run over there and spend money. But I dont have to worry about that this winter. Im happy just to set at home where its warm and play online games.

Bartongrl1, let us know how the 'staying home and playing online games' is going, when you get a chance.

I don't get into online games the way I use to, since a lot of the online casinos pulled out of the US market.

Perhaps one year they will return again. Then I can go back to relaxing again, while playing my online slots tournaments.

Re: Skill games in Ohio

I dont just play slot tourneys online, I play at a lot of free game sites, and then I also play object search games a lot. I buy several every time I go to Walmart so my game playing is well diversified.

I enjoy playing numerous games including mah jongg. And some card games also.

But like you, I will be very glad when US players can again play at their favourite online casinos.

Re: Skill games in Ohio

I know this is a rather late response, bartongrl1, but do you still play a lot of games like you had a year ago?

I think I play less game than I use to last year. I'm too busy working, keeping the house straightened up (cooking and occasional cleaning), and helping raise my niece; homework and etc.
