    The new casino scheduled to open in late 2012 in downtown Cincinnati will be named Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati.

    City panel finds Cincinnati casino design ghostly, jarring
    Business Courier – by Dan Monk
    Date: Tuesday, February 8, 2011

    At the start of a two-hour meeting, Rock Gaming LLC principal Steve Rosenthal told Cincinnati’s Urban Design Review Board that exterior design work was about 70 percent done for the planned Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati. Near the end of that same meeting, he said designers have “a whole bunch more to do.”

    In between those two assessments, members of the advisory panel used words like “hodgepodge,” “jarring,” “ghostly” and “missed opportunity” to describe site plans and renderings for the planned downtown casino. The overriding theme of the criticism was that the site lacked continuity and fails to connect the $400 million project to its surrounding environment.

    Casinos projecting fewer gamblers, cutting into expected tax revenue
    Business First
    Date: Monday, February 14, 2011

    The developers of Ohio’s four casinos are planning to install fewer gambling seats than projected in their successful 2009 campaign, which likely will mean millions less for local governments, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Developers Penn National Gaming Inc. and Rock Gaming LLC are eyeing opening all four sites next year with 11,519 seats, which analysts say would generate up to $1.6 billion in annual revenue. Two years ago, the casinos said they were looking to open with 18,960 seats for a projected revenue haul of $2 billion.

    Kasich blamed for delay in building Cincinnati casino
    Thursday, April 28, 2011 10:04 AM
    Associated Press

    Developers of a casino for downtown Cincinnati say a dispute with Gov. John Kasich will keep the place from opening next year as scheduled.

    The Cincinnati Enquirer reports casino officials said yesterday that they’ve delayed a steel order and are putting construction into a lower gear because of uncertainty over the taxes and fees they’ll be asked to pay. The opening is now expected sometime in 2013.

    Casino’s impact on Butler County slight, experts say
    By Chelsey Levingston, Staff Writer
    Updated 1:26 AM Sunday, June 26, 2011

    HAMILTON — The Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati won’t necessarily be an economic jackpot for suburban communities in Butler and Warren counties when it opens in 2013, industry analysts say.

    Other than the initial impact on the regional job market, it won’t generate a lot of other economic overflow for Cincinnati’s neighbors, said Mark Hicks, a professor of economics at Ball State University who has studied casinos.
