COLUMBUS - Confusion over a law that regulates the sale of instant bingo tickets has forced a three-month delay in enforcement of the new rules.
Gov. Bob Taft authorized the delay this week.
The law he signed in January would have taken effect Wednesday. It eliminates storefront instant-bingo parlors and allows nonprofit groups to sell pull-tab games and keep part of the profits as long as the rest goes to charity. The law is designed to keep people from profiting from instant bingo tickets and to make sure the money goes to charity.
