Problem Gambling a Growing Phenomenon? Gambling is big business in Ohio: Horse racing, new casinos, the state-run lottery, charity fundraisers and even "Internet cafes" where patrons play on-line games for sweepstakes prizes. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about state lawmakers' efforts to clamp down on hundreds of Internet Cafes across Ohio and we'll discuss whether the growing gambling culture is causing a growing gambling problem. Join the conversation, Thursday right here on 90.3.
