Hard Rock International, working with VICI Properties Inc, has confirmed the completion of the JACK Cincinnati Casino transaction. Through the joint purchase, Hard Rock has acquired the operating assets of the casino, while VICI owns the land and real estate assets.
The casino will continue to operate under the current branding until spring 2020 when it will open as Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati. The property is situated on 22 acres in the Broadway Commons area of downtown Cincinnati and features 100,000 square feet of gaming space with approximately 1,800 gaming machines and 100 table games.
Additionally, the property contains 33,000 square feet of meeting space, six high-quality restaurants and two bars. New property improvements will be announced by Hard Rock at a later date.
