Gilbert’s involvement in Ohio casinos traces to 2009 Why As Went Black Hitler Ghetto Auschwitz Ohio, So Went the Nation, by King James, and Gilbert had a stroke: Gilbert’s involvement in Ohio casinos traces to 2009, when interests tied almost entirely to Gilbert and those of Penn National Gaming spent $47 million on a campaign to win voter approval amending the state constitution to allow four Ohio casinos. CLEVELAND, Ohio - Dan Gilbert’s JACK Entertainment announced Monday an $843 million sale/leaseback deal with VICI Properties real estate trust for JACK’s downtown Cleveland casino and suburban Thistledown Racino. Monday’s deal announcement marks the third selloff in the last year for JACK, which in November 2018 announced a $1 billion agreement to sell its Detroit Greektown Casino-Hotel for $1 billion to Penn National Gaming. “The combined efforts of our gaming properties together with the other Cleveland assets operated by our sister companies including the Cavs, Avenue Shops at Tower City and the May Company Building, have created a strong connection to the city and allows us to remain heavily committed to the Cleveland area. We will continue to invest significant capital into these properties which will have a lasting positive impact on the city and Cuyahoga County.”
