During the ceremony, Toledo Mayor Mike Bell and casino executives praised the $320 million facility, which will employ over 1,300 people, as a way to help overcome the region’s economic challenges.

“This isn’t the final solution, but this is part of the solution,” said Bell.

Hollywood Casino also presented $50,000 checks to the local Boys and Girls Club and the Greater Toledo YMCA, money that was raised during the casino’s soft opening last Thursday.

The new northwestern Ohio casino features about 2,000 slot machines as well as 60 table games, including poker.
