Gross casino revenues are taxed at 33 percent, one of the highest rates in the nation for a resort casino with this level of investment. Portions of the tax revenue are designated for public school districts; the four host cities; all 88 state counties; the Ohio State Racing Commission; law enforcement training; and research and treatment of problem gambling and substance abuse.[8] The bipartisan Ohio Casino Control Commission was created in to develop rules for casino gaming in Ohio, to license operators and to regulate and ensure the integrity of operations. It is also funded by casino tax revenue.[9]

Rock Gaming acquired Caesars Entertainment's 20% stake in Rock Ohio Caesars in February ,[10] and later in the year announced that it would assume management of the properties, including Horseshoe Cleveland.[11] Rock Gaming announced in February that the company and its casinos would rebrand under the Jack name.[12] The casino closed for 40 hours in May to undergo its transition to the Jack name and management.[13][14]
