After a curfew was enforced in November due to an increase in the number of Covid-19 cases in the state, casinos in Ohio are back to full hours.
On Thursday, Governor Mike DeWine announced that the state-wide curfew had been lifted and within an hour of the news breaking, JACK Entertainment confirmed it would resume 24-hour operations.
Non-stop gaming entertainment
In a press release, Chief Executive Officer Mark Dunkeson said: “We are enthusiastic to once again offer non-stop gaming entertainment and excited that it coincides with the opening of 3,000 square-feet of brand new gaming space at JACK Thistledown Racino, as well as our continued offerings of the newest slots and live table games at JACK Cleveland Casino.”
MGM Northfield Park also announced it would immediately resume full-time operations.
David Tsai, company president, said: “We’re excited to expand our hours of operation and welcome more of our team members back to work.”
To mitigate the spread of Covid-19, both establishments said the necessary protocols would be in place.
