    By Guest Contributor ― March 4, 2013

    Doubt this could be calculated but I wonder how many “Dayton casino goers” are now going to the Cincinnati Casino instead of the Columbus Casino, now that both are open? Both Casino would be an hour away I believe.

    I totally forgot Cincinnati got a casino. In fact, the only one of these casino’s I’ve seen so far is the one in Cleveland because it happened to be connected to Terminal Tower and I decided to cut through it to take a look. It was just rows and rows of video machines in a long room…
