Cleveland casino business returns to normal

August 01, 2016 10:22 AM


Business suffered at Jack Cleveland Casino as security procedures put in place during the Republican National Convention combined to keep normal business – mostly locals – away from the downtown area.

While officials won’t say how bad it was it will become clear in August when the Ohio Casino Control Commission releases the monthly revenue results.

“From a business perspective it was certainly challenging,” a casino official told a news reporter. Mark Tricano, senior vice president of operations, told “The vast preponderance of our business is local and when they have concerns about safety or traffic they kind of avoided downtown this week.”
