A new state law requires Indiana casinos to withhold gambling payoffs to deadbeat parents, but casino officials say they can't implement the law yet.
Casino Association of Indiana President Mike Smith says thestate is working to build an online system that will allow casinos
to check the names of winners against a database of people who owe
back child support.
Only people who win enough money to trigger federal tax reporting forms will have to go through the check.
Hoosier Park general manager of gaming Jim Brown expects the program to go online throughout the state next year.
