NORTH RANDALL, OH (WOIO) -

Thistledown has gone from just a horse racing track to Cleveland's latest greatest attraction, Thistledown Racino

Over 700 smiling workers ready to meet and greet as gamblers pile into the 57,000 square foot Thistledown Racino to try their hand winning.

"We have the game of Life, Wizard of Oz, Michael Jackson, Wheel of Fortune, Aladdin, just something truly for everybody," said Rick Skinner, Vice President/General Manager of Thistledown Racino.

Over 750 VIP's have RSVP'd for today's Grand Opening.  There more than 1,100 VLT's for gamers.    

"What the pay back percentage is depends on the style of machine and denomination. So, there's not just a flat percentage," said Skinner.

The VLT's carry many names including Cash Wheel, Monte Carlo, Cleopatra, Pink Diamond and again the most famous of them all The Wheel of Fortune.

There are over 2,700 parking spaces available and shuttle buses to get you through the front doors.

Skinner adds, "We have shuttle bus entertainment, whether it's magicians, comedians, solo musical acts, just something for most everybody."

The grand opening celebration includes a concert by Taylor Hicks.
