Revenue up at Ohio casinos last month

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - February was a pretty good month for the state's casinos.

The Ohio Casino Control Commission reports that gross revenue for the state's four gaming palaces increased from $53.2 million in January to $55.5 million last month. That's a 4% gain.

The state's first "racino" - Scioto Downs south of Columbus - also had a good month. Its reported revenue of $11 million in February was an increase of more than 8% over the previous month.

Revenues for the Cleveland casino rose 6.7% last month, while the Toledo casino saw a 3.3% gain. The Columbus casino saw a gain of just more than 1%.

The state's fourth voter-approved casino - in Cincinnati - opened March 4.
