Less than ten days before its scheduled opening on May 14, 2012, the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland received full gaming licenses from the Ohio Casino Control Commission.

Formerly occupied by the Higbee Department Store, the Horseshoe Cleveland is owned by Dan Gilbert’s Rock Gaming, LLC and Caesars Entertainment Corporation.  Dan Gilbert is the founder of Quicken Loans and the present owner of the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers.

Caesars will manage the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland when it opens later this month as well as the Horseshoe Cincinnati which is slated to open next year.  Rock Gaming and Caesars also share ownership of the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati.

When it opens, the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland will offer visitors the chance to play more than 2,000 slot machines.  The casino will enable visitors to try their hands at over 60 table games as well.  Guests can also visit the establishment’s poker room, various lounges and food court.
