Ohio Casinos Bring in $158.6 Million in July

This story was published more than 2 years ago.

The Buckeye State had a lucrative month of July, as betting brought in $158.6 million, which is up 2.7% from the same period last year.

The numbers were reported by the Ohio Lottery and Casino Control Commission, which reported that slots only racinos were up 5.2% to $88.9 million. The state's four casinos were actually down 0.3% to $69.7 million. The largest slots only operation was the Hard Rock Rocksino in Northfield, which had revenues of $22.5 million. The Jack Thistledown brought in revenues of $10.6 million. Full casinos were led by the Hollywood Colombus with $19.4 million in revenues, while the Jack Cleveland was registered $16 million.

Ohio has a sizable population and stands as a potential hotspot for sportsbetting and internet gambling, although the state is taking a slow approach to regulating the activities.

Surely land band casino business doing pretty good in Ohio.
I think the local authorities approach of legalizing the sportsbetting could be a bit better because as Dustin mentioned above the potential is huge of so highly populated state which means great state incomes because of it.
