Ohio seizes $2 million in unpaid child support from casino jackpot winners

If you are a casino player in Ohio, and you owe child support payments, then watch out if you win at an Ohio casino or racino. The Department of Job and Family Services in Ohio are working closely with Ohio based casino and racinos to identify casino jackpot winners who have outstanding child support payments, Basically, if you owe someone child support payments, and you win some money at an Ohio based casino, then the casino (which has access to a database of parents who owe child support) will withhold some of, or all of your winnings and give the money to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. As a result of this joint venture between the casinos and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, more than $2 million has been collected from casino jackpot winners in the past 11 months.
