Casino Revenues Well Below What Was Promised To Voters

Mar 4, 2014

The Cincinnati casino celebrates its first birthday today.

Through the end of January, Ohio's four casinos took in 772 million dollars. If current revenues hold through March, the casinos will be on track for nearly 900 million during their first full year of operation. That is far short of the 2009 promise casino backers made to voters that revenues could be as high as 1.9 billion dollars annually.
