Casino posts first revenue bump since June


Monthly revenues at the Hollywood Casino Toledo bumped up for the first time since June -- the gambling attraction’s first full month of operation.

The casino’s December adjusted gross revenue totaled about $14.2 million, up from $13.6 million in November. The casino launched in late May and posted its biggest monthly revenues to date in June at $20.4 million.

Cleveland’s Horseshoe Casino also had its first increase in December. Revenues last month were $24.5 million, up from $20.5 million in November. Hollywood Casino Columbus, which opened Oct. 8, saw revenue fall in December to about $18 million, down about $2 million from November's totals.

December numbers were released today by the Ohio Casino Control Commission. The adjusted gross revenue is the money the casino receives for table games and slots minus winnings paid.
