3763.07 Contracts concerning property used for gaming are void.

When premises are occupied for gaming or lottery purposes, the lease or agreement under which they are so occupied shall be void, at the instance of the lessor, who may at any time obtain possession of the premises by civil action, or by an action under Chapter 1923. of the Revised Code. If a person leases premises for gaming or lottery purposes, or knowingly permits them to be so used and occupied, and fails forthwith to prosecute, in good faith, an action for the recovery of such premises, such lessor shall be considered in all cases, civil and criminal, as a principal in carrying on the business of gaming, or a lottery, on such premises.
