Tuesday marks the first full day of operations for Cincinnati's Horseshoe Casino. After opening at 8:30 last night, the casino will now be open 24-7, 365 days a year.
It was a packed house as thousands poured into the $400 million facility all night. We found plenty of people trickling out around 5 a.m. on Wednesday.
The casino is expected to bring in six million visits and $100-million to Cincinnati every year. The money does get distributed in schools throughout the state. Some of this money we saw being gambled last night will be added to the $133-million in proceeds that have already gone on to schools, counties and cities.
Host cities, like Cincinnati, get larger chunks. The Cincinnati City Council has not earmarked any specific dollar amounts for any specific services at this time, but the money does go into the general fund.
