A view inside the World Series of Poker room at the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati, opened March 4, 2013, in downtown Cincinnati.
Since the first Ohio casinos opened in May 2012, operators have sent daily tax payments to the state.
The money is distributed to all 88 Ohio counties, based on population, and about 34 cents of every dollar is stored away in a county’s casino revenue student fund.
Money from each county student fund is paid out to school districts twice a year, based on the number of students from that county who attend schools in a district.
On average, about $43 million in casino money has been doled out to districts in the first three payments.
