Regulators to report February Ohio casino revenue

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — February revenue figures for Ohio's casinos are set to be released as the facilities enter the second year with all four of them in operation.

The Ohio Casino Control Commission is scheduled to unveil the latest monthly revenue totals Friday.

Revenue from the voter-approved casinos has fallen far short of campaign promises that said they could be as high as $1.9 billion annually. Instead, the casinos are on track for a level closer to $900 million.

The only facility to post a monthly revenue increase for January was Cincinnati's casino, which, at a year old, is the newest. It celebrated its anniversary this week.

Statewide monthly revenue dropped in January to just under $59.7 million.

The other casinos are in Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo.
