On April 9, 2019, MGM will celebrate the official switchover of the Hard Rock Rocksino outside of Cleveland.  During opening ceremonies, MGM will unveil the iconic MGM Lion statue as well as celebrate the company’s entry into the Ohio gaming marketplace.

The press release stated: “Community leaders, guests, team members and MGM senior leadership will share this exciting milestone at Ohio’s award-winning, gaming, dining, and entertainment destination.”

MGM purchased the site from Hard Rock for $1 billion in July 2018.  The official switchover occurred on April 1, 2019.  In connection with the switchover, MGM announced plans to rebrand the Hard Rock Café as the TAP Sports Bar, as well as rename several of the property’s shops, bars, venues and restaurants. The facility has historically been the most profitable of Ohio’s casinos. As a racino, it is not permitted to offer table games or as wide a variety of slot machines as a casino resort.  Despite these restrictions, it generated $256 million in slots revenue in 2018.
