(A) Application review. Upon receiving a proper application, the director shall determine if the applicant meets the requirements of the Lottery Act and the commission's rules and regulations pertaining to video lottery sales agent employees. The director shall consider the following:
(1) The results of the criminal, financial, or other background investigations, if any, of the applicant;
(2) Other information that the director deems relevant to a determination regarding an applicant's suitability for issuance of a license in accordance with applicable provisions of the Lottery Act, rules, regulations, policies and directives of the commission or director pertaining to video lottery gaming operations.
(B) Reciprocity. If an applicant has been licensed by another United States gaming jurisdiction, the state racing commission, or the Ohio casino control commission as a gaming employee, or other similar designation in connection with the operation of gaming, the director may, but is not required to, consider and rely upon any certifications or licenses obtained in connection with an application submitted to another United States gaming jurisdiction, the state racing commission, or the Ohio casino control commission.
