Ohio Casinos Opening Soon

By March 31, 2012

Follow me on:

Gamblers are only a few weeks away from the opening of Ohio casinos as the state's first true (legal) casino will open in Cleveland this May followed by the new casino in Toledo.

And, racetracks too will be offering video slots! However, the new casinos are creating panic and anxiety for some locations such as Youngstown in northeast Ohio.

Although Penn National plans a new horserace track replete with video slots in Youngstown, local developers Rick Lertzman and Brad Pressman are trying hard to get a question on the Ohio ballot Nov. 6 to allow a casino in the Youngstown area.

After the Cleveland casino opens, Youngstown will be surrounded by casinos with locations also nearby in Chester, West Virginia, and Erie, Pennsylvania. What's an out-of-luck town to do?

Get signatures, of course. Even though Gov. John Kasich supports last year's state agreement with the industry for a 10-year moratorium on additional casinos, a constitutional amendment would overrule the agreement if the developers can obtain 350,000 signatures to get on the ballot.

Go Youngstown!

No we are not excited! The longetudinal studies about these operations are not good. A sad state of affairs. Leave them all in Nevada.
On a brighter note, I will give you a full report on D Vegas (Fitzgerald) in ten days. As I understand, there will be nothing for the public until May.
