Cashing in on the Casino You don't have to roll the dice or call a single bet to get paid off from Ohio's casinos, two of which -- in Cleveland and Toledo -- are now open. The state collects a third of the casinos' revenue in taxes and divvies it up. Every community gets something. On the next Sound of Ideas, who gets what and how will they decide to use the casino windfall. And will it be as big a win as promoters predicted? Join us, Thursday at 9:00 on 90.3.
