With the opening of the Hollywood Casino Toledo last week, many people are now looking forward to the opening of the Hollywood Casino Columbus, which is set for October.
The Columbus casino will be both larger and more expensive than the Toledo property, and casino officials have currently begun the hiring process for 2,000 new employees.
According to Ameet Patel, the general manager of the Columbus casino, the property will have about 3,000 slot machines and 100 table games, more than the Toledo property which has just over 2,000 slot machines and 60 table games.
“Everything inside will look very similar [to Toledo], but on a bigger scale,” said Patel. “And the outside will be surrounded by water and cascades and will create a sense of arrival.”
An exact date for the opening of the newest Ohio casino has not yet been set.
