Ohio casinos bring in $63.5M for June; Cleveland revenue notably drops compared with year ago


COLUMBUS, Ohio — Revenue dropped from May to June at Ohio's four casinos, though three brought in more than they did a year earlier.

The Ohio Casino Control Commission said Tuesday casino revenue in June totaled $63.5 million, a bit less than a year earlier.

Compared with June 2014, the Cleveland casino lost about as much as the other three gained. Revenue for the Cincinnati, Columbus and Toledo casinos was up by a combined $2.5 million, but Cleveland's revenue dropped by $2.6 million despite more table game and slot activity. A casino spokeswoman says guests in Cleveland were lucky last month.

The casinos have reported $409 million in revenue this year, on pace with last year. About one-third is collected in taxes and given mostly to counties, school districts and host cities.
