Casino revenue increases in March

COLUMBUS, Ohio – More people are playing the slot machines at central Ohio’s gambling spots.

State officials say revenue at Scioto Downs was up nearly 15 percent in March, to more than $12 million.

Meantime, the Hollywood Casino Columbus pulled down nearly $21 million last month, marking a 13-percent jump over February, according to monthly figures released by the Ohio Casino Control Commission.

The report says the state’s newest casino had a strong opening, the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati raking in $21 million in revenue, the second-highest grossing casino in Ohio, following the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland.

Revenues also increased at the casinos in Cleveland and Toledo.

This was the first month that all four Ohio casinos were operating.

The gaming spots have reported $193 million during the first three months of the year.
