CINCINNATI (AP) - Nearly 1,350 people have applied to be table dealers or supervisors at a casino under construction in downtown Cincinnati.
Only 750 such jobs will be available at the $400 million casino, which is about 70 percent finished. It's slated to open in the spring.
An online application for the openings became available Wednesday and will remain open until Sept. 16. Applicants will be whittled down to 3,000 for an in-person hiring event at the end of September.
Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati will be the last of four voter-approved casinos to open in Ohio. Casinos in Cleveland and Toledo opened first. The Columbus casino is set to open in October.
The Cleveland casino, which opened in May, got more than 12,000 applications during its recruiting period.
