Penn National Gaming, which also built the Hollywood Casino Toledo, will be holding a test run for the commission on October 3. It will be an invitation-only event and proceeds from the event will be given to charity.
When open, Hollywood Columbus will offer 160,000 square feet of gaming with over 3,000 slot machines and over 70 table games, including a poker room.
There will eventually be four Ohio casinos, with Rock Ohio Caesars opening a Horseshoe in Cincinnati next spring. Caesars also opened the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland in May.
