Gamblers Begin Spinning The Wheels At Cleveland, Ohio Casino

It has been a decades long wait for some gamblers in Ohio. The thought of going to a casino and playing slot machines has been a dream for many Ohioans over the past twenty years, but on Thursday, that dream moved as close as it has ever been to becoming reality.

The Horseshoe Casino Cleveland had a dry run Thursday for family members of the staff, in an effort to show regulators that all aspects of the casino are running smoothly. The casino is slated to open next Monday, and as is the case with every new casino, the Horseshoe had to show the Ohio Casino Control Commission that everything was ready to go.

"I've been waiting for this for a long time," said Martin Baccos, a family member that was invite3d to take part in the trial run. "It's everything I thought it would be. The machines were awesome, the facility was awesome, I can't wait until next week when I can play the slots for real."

Thursday's test run saw gamblers test machines and table games, with all of the proceeds from the day going to three charities that were selected by the Horseshoe. The beneficiaries of these profits were Cuyahoga County Community College Foundation, the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute, and the Greater Cleveland United Way.

When the casino opens for real on Monday, it is expected that thousands of Ohio residents will come from all around the state to be in attendance on the first day casino gambling officially begins in Ohio. For some, the idea of being part of such a monumental event is something that has been long in the making.

"We have been trying as residents to get casinos in Ohio for years," said Gary Balto, a Cincinnati resident. "It took an economic recession to get it done, but finally we will be able to enjoy the same fun that people experience in other states. I love casinos, they are exciting, and provide plenty of entertainment options, and I can't wait for Monday."

Ohio residents finally approved casino gambling after dozens of attempts failed in the past. The voters approved a plan that will bring casinos to Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, and Toledo. The Cleveland and Cincinnati casinos will be owned and operated by Rock Gaming, a company formed by Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert.

The Columbus and Toledo casinos will be run by Penn National Gaming, a company with a long history of operating casinos throughout the US.
