Ohio’s September gaming revenue hits $152.2m
By Matthew Enderby

Revenue from Ohio’s casinos and racinos totalled $152.2m in September this year, a 4% increase for year-on-year figures.  

The state's seven, slots-only racinos generated revenue of $85.7m this year, an increase of 8.1%, making them one of the lead contributors to the state's overall growth.

The four casinos in Ohio saw numbers drop as casino revenue slipped 0.9% year-on-year to $66.5m.

Table games are only permitted at these four venues and the leader in that specific category was Jack Cleveland Casino, which registered revenue from table games of $8.7m for the month and $98.6m for the year.

Hard Rock Rocksino, bought by MGM Resorts in September, has taken a total of $193m this year after paying out winnings.

Hollywood Casino Columbus saw revenue of $170.2m, the second-highest for the state, followed by Hollywood Casino Toledo at $152.9m and Jack Casino Cleveland at $152.1m.

However, only Hollywood Toledo and Jack Cincinnati Casino recorded an increase in year-on-year September revenue. Hollywood Toledo grew from $16.2m to $16.3 and Jack Cincinnati moved from $15.7m to $16.2m.
