Des Moines, Iowa — The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission recently voted to appoint administrator Brian Ohorilko to another four-year term. Ohorilko took over in 2012 to fill out two years of the term of Jack Ketterer, who retired.
The IRGC eventually opened up the license again and then settled on the plan to retire the riverboat and move the casino to land. The company that had held the license then sued and lost the case.
Ohorilko got started in the gambling industry in 2001 and was the director of gaming in Iowa when he was elevated to the administrator position.
Ohorilko will still have to be confirmed by the Iowa Senate to serve in his second four-year term.
