Casino revenue slightly up in Ohio

Associated Press Published:

COLUMBUS -- New figures show revenue rose slightly at Ohio's four voter-approved casinos in May compared with the previous month.

The Ohio Casino Control Commission's Monday report says the facilities had nearly $71.2 million in combined revenue last month, up from about $69 million in April.

Together they have brought in more than $346 million so far this year.

The month-to-month increases ranged from less than 1 percent at the Toledo casino to just over 5 percent for Columbus, which logged more than $18.3 million in May revenue.

The Toledo casino reported nearly $16.2 million. Cleveland had nearly $19.5 million, and Cincinnati had over $17.1 million.

Compared with the numbers from a year ago, May revenue was higher at the casinos in Columbus and Toledo and lower for Cincinnati and Cleveland.
