CINCINNATI - Leaders of Ohio's casino in downtown Cincinnati say the $400 million facility is about 75 percent finished and on pace to open on time in the spring.
Kevin Kline, general manager of Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati, and other executives revealed the inside of the 400,000-square-foot facility for the first time during a hard-hat tour for reporters on Thursday .
More than 500 construction workers were slapping on drywall, painting ceilings and laying concrete at the casino.
The facility will include three restaurants, 2,000 slot machines, 85 table games and a World Series of Poker room.
The casino will be the last of four voter-approved casinos to open in Ohio. Casinos in Cleveland and Toledo opened first, and a casino in Columbus is set to open next month.
