The Ohio Casino Control Commission released its monthly statewide casino gambling report today. The numbers show overall wagering last month at Ohio’s two Las Vegas-style casinos dropped about 9 percent from July.

In Toledo, wagering in slot machines and at table games both fell about 11 percent.

The commission said Penn National Gaming — the operator of Hollywood Toledo — posted a gross revenue after payouts of $17.4 million for the month.
