Ohio casino revenue ticks up slightly in October; numbers down from last year


COLUMBUS, Ohio — Total revenue at Ohio's four full-service casinos ticked up slightly from September to October — but it was down nearly 9 percent compared with a year ago.

Casinos in Toledo, Cleveland and Columbus saw revenue increases last month, while Cincinnati's fell. Cincinnati saw a 23-percent decline in October compared with the same month a year ago.

Cleveland's casino saw an 11-percent drop in October compared with a year ago. Revenue in Columbus was virtually unchanged from a year ago, and Toledo saw a 4-percent increase.

The voter-approved casinos took in a total of $64 million in October and $676 million so far this year. The state collects about one-third of those revenues in taxes and distributes the money to counties, school districts, host cities and other entities.
