Rock Gaming and Harrah's Entertainment May Create 1 Billion Dollar Casino in Cincinnati

Rock Gaming LLC and Harrah’s Entertainment are exploring a partnership in the development and operation of two casinos in Cincinnati that will represent $1 billion of investment. Rock, a subsidiary of Detroit-based Rock Holdings Inc., is the lead on the two projects, while Las Vegas-based Harrah’s would manage the facilities. We are seeing other states which have passed casino bills like Ohio take more than a year to get their casinos even started. Looks like if bills pass in other states like here in Massachusetts, we can imagine the revenue and building of the casinos to take years.

Owners of Suffolk Downs said they are considering laying off employees and reducing purses for race winners now that the track cannot count on casino gambling to rescue its money-losing operations. It's no surprise with Suffolk downs dumping more than $35 million into the track just to keep it afloat in hopes of slots to help boost the bottom line. Too bad they can't just scale the track down and still make some money.

Gambling Bill Not Dead in Massachusetts

The gambling bill just will not die. Days after the measure appeared to be deadl, some Beacon Hill lawmakers are discussing ways to revive it, now that the Legislature appears likely to return to formal session to spend an unrelated infusion of federal Medicaid and education money.

We'd like to encourage our representatives to take some time, remove the slot parlor crap, and pass the bill.
