Toledo Casino Site Soon Ready For Ohio Regulators

Apr 4, 2012

Slot machines are almost fully installed and table games have been delivered to Ohio's second casino, which is scheduled to open in late May in Toledo. That was among updates heard by Ohio regulators Wednesday as the state prepares for the openings of four voter-approved casinos.

Jeffrey Goodman of Hollywood Casino Toledo told state regulators that table games at the facility should be set up by mid-month, and slots would be ready for regulators to test at about that time. Goodman said more than 510 table and poker dealers were trained. The casino is aiming to open the last week of May, pending approval from the Ohio Casino Control Commission. Cleveland's casino is slated to open about two weeks earlier. Voters also approved casinos in Cincinnati and Columbus in 2009.
