Game in Ohio, America, is exorbitant (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ruinous

Here is my best explanation:

'exorbitant' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'game in ohio america' is the subsidiary indication.

'game' becomes 'ru'.

'ohio' becomes 'o'.

'america' becomes 'us' (abbreviation for the United States).

'ru'+'in'+'o'+'us'='ruinous'

'is' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for ruinous that I've seen before include "causing harm?", "Destructive; dilapidated", "far too expensive", "disastrous", "Disastrous, destructive", "Tumbledown - expensive", "Calamitous, crippling", "Exorbitant", "Catastrophic" and "Broken down".)
