Cincinnati Casino Gearing Up For Opening Next Week


UPDATED: Tuesday February 26, 2013 7:02 AM

Workers at Ohio's fourth and last voter-approved casino are gearing up for the $400 million facility's opening in less than one week.

The casino opens its doors to reporters Tuesday for a first look since a hard-hat tour of construction months ago.

The casino undergoes a pivotal dry run Wednesday for invited guests only without reporters present.

If no major problems arise, the Ohio Casino Control Commission will allow the casino to open to the public on March 4.

Cincinnati's casino will be the last of four voter-approved casinos to open in the state in less than a year.

Casinos in Cleveland, Toledo and Columbus opened in that order starting in May.
