COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Regulators say monthly revenue fell at 3 of Ohio's four, voter-approved casinos in August compared with July but was up slightly at the fourth facility in northwest Ohio.

The Ohio Casino Control Commission's Monday report showed revenue at the casino in Toledo increased 2.9% from July figures to about $15.9 million for August.

August revenue for the Cleveland casino last month was about $18.9 million, down 4.8% from July. The casino in Columbus reported revenue last month of about $16.9 million, down 3.4% from the previous month.

The casino in Cincinnati showed a 0.3% decline from July to around $19.2 million for August.

Statewide, casino revenues totaled about $70.9 million in August, down 1.6% from July's $72 million.
