Although Ohio is a fairly new entrant in the gambling industry, payouts have surpassed $21 billion dollars thus far and predicted to continue to grow and thrive as more venues are added. Horse racing is popular in this state and many tracks have added casinos, thereby coining the name “racinos.” There are two top contenders for the title of “loosest slots in Columbus”; one is a casino, the other is a racino.
Hollywood Casino Columbus
This classy Las Vegas-style casino is the largest of its kind in Ohio and ranked 2nd in the state for loose slots per Casino Player Magazine. Average payout is 92.12%. Boasting over 2,200 slots, both reel and progressive, it also has the only video poker games in Columbus. Games range from penny up to $100.00. Some of the top game favorites here are Dragon Wonder, Fortune Trip, KISS, Lord of the Rings Fellowship, and Lord of the Rings Land of Mordor. Be sure to sign up for a Marquee Rewards account for a chance at $1,000.00 in free slot play credit and other exclusive perks just for members. Overall, this casino is smoke-free except for a special area designated for smokers that contains 21 penny to dollar slots. Also, be aware that there is a dress code that is enforced. 'Neat' is the operative word; no extreme body baring clothing for the ladies and no slouchy pants that show off the underwear for the gentlemen.
Scioto Downs Racing
Harness racing season runs from May - September, but this racino is open for gaming year-round. This venue is the only one in the area that combines gaming, racing, and live entertainment. Home to 2,100 Video Lottery Terminal (VLT) games that include reels, video, and video keno, Scioto Downs Racing casino is constantly updating with the newest and best games, making for some of the loosest slots in Columbus. VLTs are played exactly like slots in other casinos but are under the auspices of the Ohio Lottery Commission as well as the Racino Agency; double insurance that all games are up to high standards. If you're feeling lucky, give the high-limit area a go - bets are $10.00, $25.00, and $100.00. Become an IN Club member for free slot play and other exclusive promotions for members only.
