State Reaches Deal With Springfield Bingo Club

Feb 8, 2013

Ohio's attorney general has announced an agreement with a Springfield bingo club to settle allegations of illegal gambling activity.

The deal with the Union Club replaces its operating board and temporarily suspends bingo activity later this month. An investigation found the club was paying its bingo workers and electronic slot machines were in the club's facility. The investigation also found the board did not keep minutes involving large expenditures, wasn't following its by-laws, refused to share financial information with some members, paid employees with cash and refused to file employees' tax forms.
