Regulators To Release Ohio Casino Revenue

Ohio is wrapping up its first summer with all four voter-approved casinos in operation, and the latest monthly revenue data will show how those facilities fared. The Ohio Casino Control Commission was scheduled to release the August revenue report Monday. Revenue grew slightly at each of the four casinos in July compared with the previous month. But revenue came in below the totals from a year earlier for the two casinos that were open then, in Cleveland and Toledo. Statewide, casino revenues totaled $72 million in July. Ohio's newest casino is the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati, which opened in early March. Operators say the site drew nearly 2.7 million people for gambling, dining or live shows during its first six months in business. Hollywood Casino Columbus opened in October of 2012.
