Over the weekend the Ohio Casino Control Commission is expected to give the go ahead to operate to Cincinnati's Horseshoe Casino. Wednesday's soft opening uncovered a few problems that Commission Director of Enforcement Karen Huey said need fixing.

"Some of the areas that we wanted to talk to them about were in security and surveillance. Again, it might be hardware fixes. These are things that they can definitely adjust.

Huey says she has already looked over the proposed changes from General Manager Kevin Klein.

"We feel great about being on track and we're going to plan this process out and we feel like we will meet the gaming commission's requests for operational readiness."

Assuming the Casino Control Commission approves the security and surveillance changes, Horseshoe will open Monday night at 8:30.
