The new Ohio casino will be open 24/7 and will offer standard bred harness racing  and have up to 2,500 video lottery terminals. Construction should begin on the project next month and it’s expected to be completed in early 2014.

Ohio currently only has one racino, Scioto Downs in Columbus, but there are four other similar properties pending state approval.

The racino is a joint venture between Churchill Downs Inc. and Delaware North Cos. Gaming & Entertainment and it is expected to employ about 700 people.
