It’s about time for some good news this afternoon as WCPO.com reports details of the plans concerning two Ohio casinos. Good times will soon roll in Cincinnati and in Cleveland with the news that Las Vegas-based Harrah’s Entertainment Inc. has officially signed on to develop and operate casinos in both cities.

The company they’ve linked up with is headed up by Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert. The non-binding agreement (Now what exactly does that mean? any agreement made on this kind of large scale should be pretty binding and legally by contract, right?) set in motion between Detroit-based Rock Gaming LLC was also announced on this past Thursday.

Additional definitive agreements are expected this fall with investments estimated to rise above the $1 billion total to successfully pull all of this off. If you recall, Ohio voters last year approved casinos in four cities. So are you excited as we move closer and closer to seeing them in action?
