Horseshoe Casino Cleveland to Close for 40 Hours for Branding Overhaul


[image-1]The Horseshoe Casino is getting a makeover soon to with its new name, and with that comes the first time the facility won't be open since it first swung wide the doors back in 2012. On Monday, May 9, it will close and reemerge as JACK Cleveland Casino, almost four years to the day when it debuted.

The casino will reopen 40 hours later at 4 p.m. Wednesday, May 11. In the interim, it will get an overhaul as it becomes JACK. If the change is anything like what went down at JACK Thistledown Racino, we can expect brand new marketing and signing as part of the transformation. The changes also included some upgrades to its computer systems.
