Casino Revenues Down Across Ohio

May 7, 2013

All four of Ohio's casinos saw dips in April revenues compared to their March numbers.


A report released Tuesday by the Ohio Casino Control Commission shows Cleveland drawing in the highest revenue compared to the state's other facilities. The casino there raked in almost $19.9 million. Columbus reported more than $18 million in April revenue. Cincinnati dropped from $21 million in its first month of operation in March, to about $17.8 million in April. Toledo also ticked down slightly from $17.8 million in March, to $16.4 million last month. Statewide, casino revenues dropped from $84.3 million in March to $72.2 million. The four casinos approved by voters in 2009 opened within a 10-month span, beginning with Toledo and Cleveland last May. The Columbus site opened in October.
