New casino to be built in northeast Cincinnati

Project expected to create 2,000 construction jobs


Horseshoe Cincinnati will serve as a gaming destination for southwest Ohio.  The nearly 100,000 sq. ft. gaming floor will house plenty of attractions for guests.  The casino expects to offer approximately 2,300 slot machines, 72 table games, a high-limits area, an action-packed World Series of Poker room, and a VIP Player's lounge.  In addition, the casino is expected to include three street-side restaurants, a buffet restaurant, a food court with regional fare, and a main-floor feature bar to round out the food, beverage and entertainment offerings.  On the second level, approximately 33,000 sq. ft. of multipurpose and special function space will provide for business meetings, social events and entertainment offerings.

Horseshoe Casino Cleveland

Rock Ohio Caesars also announced Thursday that it will proceed with a Phase 1 casino – 'Horseshoe Casino Cleveland' – in the Historic Higbee Building downtown, which could open in early 2012.  This $350 million large-scale renovation will convert the former department store into a first class casino, and is expected to create approximately 2,000 construction jobs and up to 1,600 casino jobs in its initial phase.
