Casino Review – Jack Casino, Cleveland OH.

So I’m here in Cleveland Ohio and I gotta
visit the Jack casino.
Previously the Horseshoe casino, so I’m
looking forward to checking it out.
It’s pretty cold out here so I’m going
to go inside.
Check out the craps tables, and see if we
can find any luck inside.
I grew up outside of Cleveland so I love the
area, I came to a lot of Indians games, so
I think it would be cool to walk over to the
Casino after a game.
This trip I drove in.
The Cavilers were playing a home game so all
the parking was marked up for the event, $30-40
if you wanted to be real close.
I found some $10 parking a little walk away.
The casino is located in the Tower City Center
right in downtown.
I like the downtown location of the casino,
it just has a different vibe than say Las
It has the energy and all the people of a
vibrant downtown.
It’s just, and then there’s the casino
just tucked in there.
I thought it was pretty cool.
Ok, so I know you aren’t here for a review
of Cleveland, so I’ll tell you what I remember
about the Jack.
Let me warn you the footage from inside is
not good, I was a little nervous trying to
capture it.
ButI’ll get better at it as I do more of
these reviews
Inside the door my backpack was checked by
security, she was friendly.
Entering I was pleasantly surprised, it was
attractive, clean, its also non smoking.
Its not super big, but not cramped by any
It covers 3 floors of the building.
They were playing a mix of easy listening
and light rock music, not too loud, I would
say pleasant level.
They had what looked like a pretty nice poker
room up on the 3rd floor.
The second floor had some food options, slots,
and this is where most of the table games
They had 2 different electronic craps machines.
One was a dedicated bubble machine, and the
other was this multi game machine were you
could play blackjack roulette or craps, but
everything just displayed up on monitors,
so it was all digital.
They were both $10 minimum “total” bet,
I wasn’t sure if this meant you could make
multiple bets that just totaled $10 or what.
I just moved along.
There was a sports bar, and they were showing
the cavs game on all the tv’s.
The Cavs were just starting their game across
the street.
They also had a little area with live music
at another bar.
I sat and listened for a bit.
Down on the street level is where the craps
pit was.
There were six tables total.
One table was closed down, and the other five
were pretty full actually.
One table was running crapless craps.
All the tables were either 10 or 15 dollar
minimums, this was a Friday night just for
reference, so I’m not sure if they are cheaper
during the week or what.
So it wasn’t the most successful session.
I played for little over an hour, ended up
being down about $50.
It was a pretty chill group.
Actually all the tables, I went to a couple
different tables.
It was a pretty relaxed atmosphere, pretty
The dealers were alright, they were friendly
They ran the fire bet as their little bonus.
I didn’t participate, I kept it pretty simple,
played high odds, but um, despite the loss
I had a good time so thumbs up for the Jack.

  1. do you remember how busy "crapless craps" table was? I've been wanting to try this variant out and it was non existant in the other states I have lived in..I saw online how they have it in cleveland and cinci for the jack casinos so I'm sure i'll make the trip to check it out soon (recently moved to columbus)

  2. I went to the Jack when visiting around Christmas time and I didn't care for the minimums for Roulette or the other games. I have a better experience (and luck) at the Hard Rock Rocksino in Northfield. It's only slots, but it's free parking and easier to get to than the Jack.

    I'm also a bit aggro that the Jack is the reason the Hard Rock Cafe in Cleveland closed.

  3. Use to play holdem here. Lots of hoodlums in here and the parking garage is $20 to park and full of homeless people and they dont take no for an answer very well. The place wreaks of marijuana/fried food. This is an honest review. If you want, try Columbus. Hood texas holdem players usin slang and profanity making horrific bets and barely can stay awakr cause theyre all high. You know what Im talking about if youve ever played at a casino in a dying major democratic city
