July revenue from Ohio casinos increases from June but falls short of totals from a year ago

ASSOCIATED PRESS

COLUMBUS — A monthly update shows Ohio’s casino revenue increased nearly 7 percent in July compared with the previous month but fell short of the totals from a year earlier.

The Ohio Casino Control Commission released the latest revenue figures Thursday. In July, the casinos in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo totaled nearly $68 million in revenue. That’s down 5.6 percent from last July.

Each of the four casinos saw revenue increases compared with their June totals. But July revenues in Cincinnati and Cleveland were down from a year ago.

The voter-approved casinos have drawn nearly $478 million so far this year. The state collects about one-third of those revenues in taxes and distributes the money to counties, along with school districts, host cities and others.
