CINCINNATI -- About a third of the more than 1,700 workers at a new casino in downtown Cincinnati have been hired.

Hundreds of dealers are undergoing training now at the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati, which is about 75 percent finished.

The casino is set to open in the spring, with an exact date to be announced in the next few weeks.
