Ohio casino revenue up slightly from June to July

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Regulators say monthly revenue grew slightly at each of Ohio’s four, voter-approved casinos in July but came in below the totals from a year ago for the two casinos that were open then.

The Ohio Casino Control Commission’s Wednesday report shows revenue for the Cleveland casino last month was nearly $19.9 million, down 17 percent from July 2012. The Toledo casino brought in $15.4 million, marking a 19.3 percent drop compared with a year ago. Both casinos opened in May 2012.

Ohio’s newest casino, in Cincinnati, had the biggest dip from May to June but rebounded a bit in July with revenue of about $19.3 million.

Revenue at the Columbus casino was about $14.5 million, up 6 percent from the previous month.

Statewide, casino revenues totaled $72 million in July.
