COLUMBUS -- Ohio regulators are planning to review the background of a company slated to open the state's first casino next month.
The Ohio Casino Control Commission meets Wednesday to review a newly completed report on Rock Ohio Caesars. It will include details about the company's financial stability and whether it has any criminal background.
The commission will later decide if the company can proceed with its May opening of Horseshoe Casino Cleveland. That is one of four approved casinos in Ohio and the first expected to open. Penn National Gaming plans to open a casino in Toledo a few weeks later.
Casinos also are planned in Cincinnati and Columbus.
