First post but have been lurking a while. Stopped by JACK Casino in Cleveland this weekend. Didn't play much but thought I would give a run down of the Casino from what I saw.

1) Had 2 live craps tables, one $10 and one $15. Looked like 1x, 2x, 3x odds. Field was double on the 2 and 12.
2) Had many $10 BJ tables, all paid 6/5
3) Then new "synergy" game was pretty cool. Had many different games you could play either "live" or video. Had a live dealer and a bubble machine for craps. There was also a seperate craps game off from the main "stadium" area that had a version of bubble craps. Had $5 total bet minimum.

JACK is running a $10 free play promotion with $5 bonus for signing up for their card. Downside is that it goes active 24 - 48 hours after sign up and playing at least $10.

Casino was very nice inside, a lot nicer than I expected. Was also expecting a rough crowd outside but didn't witness any of that. If you've never been to Cleveland, JACK is right downtown and walking distance to a lot of great bars and restaurants, as well as connected to the City Center Tower.

Jack Cleveland is a pretty nice place. Employees are very friendly and helpful- which must definitely be part of the training and culture there. It's non-smoking in the casino, which is nice (unless you're a smoker) and helps keep things clean. Video poker paytables are OK but nothing great. Last time I checked 8/5 was the best you could do on JOB.

Thank's for posting. Unfortunately I live a few thousand miles away so the info will probably be antiquated before I get a chance to utilize it, but it's always interesting to read about and compare different gambling regions. Not being an expert, what surprised me was that Cleveland has a full blown casino. A few questions....

What is the status of gaming in Ohio? Are there any game restrictions (such as a wheel not allowed to make a final outcome)? Is gambling limited to only a few areas such as river barges, tribal lands or certain jurisdictions? (From your description, the JACK casino seems to be an actual building in the heart of the city.)

Also thank you for mentioning Synergy games. It got me reading up on them and they now seem to have games where you can actually save your progress on your players card. Will video games and casinos merge? Interesting times.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

I got screwed on the delay in Cincinnati. They took 36 hours. We were out of town before I saw the email. Bah.

Ohio approved 4 land based casinos early this decade located in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, and Toledo. Gaming regulations for the most part are just like Vegas, AC, Mississippi, riverboat states, etc.

They also have several racinos whose gaming is governed by the state lottery, slots are like Vegas, but they haven't approved skill games like video poker or table games.
