COLUMBUS, Ohio — Three of Ohio's four full-service casinos had a nice bump in revenue last month.

Overall, the state's four casinos raked in nearly $65 million in January. That was up nearly 9 percent over January 2014 when snow and record cold temperatures kept many gamblers at home.

The casinos in Columbus and Toledo saw the biggest increases.

Columbus led the state with nearly $18 million in revenue last month for a 17 percent gain. Toledo's casino had the biggest jump percentage wise. Its revenue of $14.3 million was up 24 percent over January a year ago.

Cleveland's casino was up 4 percent to $17.4 million in revenue.

Revenue at Cincinnati's casino was down 6 percent over the month.
