The latest numbers from the state's four casinos show mixed news. Ohio Public Radio's Karen Kasler reports.
The Hollywood Toledo casino had a huge drop in revenue, pulling in over $14 million, compared to $15.8 million in August. And fall brought a big fall for Hollywood Columbus, which brought in $15.7 million in September, almost a million dollars off from the August revenue numbers.
But the Horseshoe Cincinnati casino brought in $19.8 million last month - which was up $400,000 from August. And Horseshoe Cleveland had similar results, raking in $19.3 million.
Statewide, the four casinos totaled $68.9 million, which is a drop of almost $2 million.
And year to date, the casinos have hauled in almost $618 million. But when casino gambling was approved in 2009, it was estimated that the four casinos would bring in two billion dollars a year in revenue.
