Officials are unsure if the Celevelend casino will be opening on that exact date, but hope it will be opening at least within that week. Commission staff and state consultants still have to audit and complete background checks on the casino’s investors as well as 1,000 Cleveland gaming employees.

“We have been on nothing but an accelerated time frame for absolutely everything we’ve been doing,” said Matthew Schuler, executive director of the Ohio Casino Control Commission.

Members of Cleveland City Council were given a tour of the casino last week, one of the last viewings before a pre-opening “lockdown” goes into effect.
