Toledo's casino another step closer to opening

Hollywood Casino clears another hurdle

Hollywood Casino's owners have cleared one hurdle towards opening in the coming months.

A few eeeks ago, the state Casino Control Commission delayed the April opening because some stakeholders in Penn National Gaming refused to submit to background checks required by Ohio law.

On Thursday, Penn won approval for an alternative management structure that decreases the number of people who have to submit to those checks.

Despite this development, a firm opening date for the casino has not yet been set,
