On November 2, 2015, Rock Gaming LLC announced that the company and its affiliates (“Rock Gaming”) will begin the transition of operational responsibilities of Horseshoe Casino Cleveland, Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati, and ThistleDown Racino. Management of the properties will transition from Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, Inc. and its subsidiaries in the coming months and is expected to be completed by mid-2016.

“This is an exciting time for us and we are eager to take the reins of day-to-day operations. We view this as an opportunity to leverage our unique culture and vast network of companies to grow the business and further connect the casinos to the downtown areas where they reside,” said Matt Cullen, CEO of Rock Gaming. “We appreciate Caesars’ commitment in helping develop three world-class gaming facilities, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with them in Baltimore and with Caesars Interactive Entertainment.”

As a part of the transition, the properties will be rebranded and a new loyalty program will be introduced. Rock Gaming will be rolling guests’ current Total Rewards Tier Status, Tier Credits and Reward Credits over to the new loyalty program. Additional details on the program will be announced in the coming months.

“Our top priority is making this transition a seamless experience for our more than 3,600 new team members and millions of guests,” said Mr. Cullen. “Our guests will still receive the same high level of commitment and service they have come to expect.”

Notably, in February, Rock Gaming became sole owner of Horseshoe Casino Cleveland, ThistleDown Racino, Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati, the Ritz-Carlton, Cleveland, Higbee Building, and a controlling interest in Turfway Park.

Rock Gaming also owns and operates Greektown Casino in Detroit.
