Ohio's Second Casino Almost Ready For Opening

Operators of Ohio's second casino are ready to show off its slot machines, gaming tables and restaurants. The Hollywood Casino in Toledo will open in just over a week, but developers will be giving the media a preview of the $320 million casino on Monday. The casino in Toledo is located just south of the city's downtown and will be in direct competition with three casinos just an hour's drive to the north in Detroit. Hollywood Casino Toledo will feature 2,000 slot machines along with a grand buffet and a steakhouse overlooking the Maumee River. Toledo officials project the casino will bring in about $3 million in tax revenue to the city this year. Ohio's first casino opened a week ago in downtown Cleveland and has drawn big crowds.
