Cleveland: Jack Cleveland Casino

Recommended Posts

I hated "JACK" but now I like it, if the brand is edgier/sleeker, more like the Cosmopolitan, Aria, etc... in Las Vegas. Love the signage. If so, it won't be for Granny and Grandpa (they will still go to the suburban CLE racinos for or their slot play) but perhaps a more upscale look and feel will attract a better clientele overall (... wishful thinking...)

Who knows?  The jack is obviously one of the face cards in every deck of cards.  That card is also called "the knave," which implies roguishness and mischief, suitable for a casino.  There is also that game of 21 they play at tables, BLACKJACK.  Maybe none of these references apply to their thinking, but I did notice a strange similarity between the JACK Casino signage and that of JACK's Deli in University Heights!  hmmmm.

Jack Cleveland Casino's February revenue is 9.8 percent lower than prior year

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Jack Cleveland Casino's February revenue was the lowest for that month since the casino opened.

 

The casino's total revenue of $16.5 million was a 9.8 percent decrease from February 2016.

 

But the casino, like the other three casinos and seven racinos in Ohio, saw revenue increase from January, despite February having fewer days. Mild weather could have been a factor.

"Mild weather could have been a factor." Are people more apt to gamble when the weather is terrible or mediocre, or was the reporter just looking to fulfill his 500 word quota? I can think of 17 other rational decisions why it dropped 9.8%. Hell, let's make it an even 20.

 

It's like when people say the stock market is "correcting" when it drops 500 points. Just a waste of words.

I think you misread the article. February had more revenue than January even though there were fewer days. At least in Ohio, mild winters usually bring out more gamblers. Statewide revenue was up compared to last year and better weather might be a factor.

Report is the casino has bought out the strip 

I’d say this is good news. So long as they have a plan.

The casino should add a side entrance on Ontario for valet/curbside drop off. At public square is too congested, plus it would add much needed activity to that strip.

 

Also needs to be in conjunction with a narrowing of the street and the accommodation of  a curb cut out for a drop off area. Imo

Some interesting things on the design review... again why cant all of this happen WITHOUT the skywalk?  I dont know.  But things I like... finally enhancing the streetscape on Ontario and wrapping around Prospect.  Adding greenery.  Adding a cafe/retail spot on the corner of Ontario and W Prospect.  Remodeling that awful garage and renovating the ground level storefronts.  All great things, but why are they only happening now?

JACK Entertainment’s plan for elevated walkway over Ontario Street clears design review, but with strings attached

 

An advisory panel for Cleveland’s planning commission narrowly approved JACK Entertainment’s plan to build an elevated walkway over Ontario Street, but not before a debate over whether it would really help revitalize the street below.

 

JACK Entertainment wants to build a walkway that will connect the upper floors of the old Higbee Building to parking in the former May Co. parking garage across Ontario between Public Square and Prospect Avenue.

 

The easy access to parking would make upper floors in the Higbee Building attractive for leasing, sparking activity in the neighborhood, Len Komoroski, a principal in JACK Entertainment, told a design-review panel on Thursday.

 

The Cleveland Planning Commission’s Downtown|Flats Design Review Advisory Committee gave its approval by a 5-4 vote Thursday, sending it to the full Planning Commission.

 

...

 

Ultimately the committee approved the bridge, but will require JACK Entertainment to provide more details of its plan for the street. JACK Entertainment Vice President Gino Del Pup said the company was willing to commit to providing a master plan.
