Columbus Casino Revenue Declines

Jan 8, 2013

The Ohio Casino Control Commission says wagers at the Columbus casino fell by 10 percent, or 2-million dollars, from November to December as the novelty of slots and table games wore off.

December revenue for casinos in Columbus, Cleveland and Toledo rose by more than 3-million to 56.7 million dollars. Revenue at the Scioto Downs racino rose by 30-thousand to 9.9 million dollars in December. One-third of the revenue goes to the state.  Slots betting in Cleveland was up 17.3 percent and wagers at table games up 12.6 percent. Table betting rose 2.2 percent in December at the Toledo casino.
