Revenues Up for Columbus Casino
Regulators say three of Ohio's four casinos saw revenue increases last month. Data released Thursday by the Ohio Casino Control Commission shows the Columbus casino saw the biggest increase, from $15.7 million in September to $17.7 million last month. That's a nearly 13 percent increase. Cleveland's revenues increased by about 4 percent to $19.5 million. Toledo saw a much more moderate increase of 1 percent, to $14.7 million. Cincinnati's revenues declined by 8 percent to $18.2 million. Statewide, casino revenues totaled $70 million in October, up from $68.9 million in September. The monthly high this year was $84 million in March, boosted by the Cincinnati casino's opening. The casinos have drawn nearly $688 million so far this year.
