Ohio casino July revenue totals to be released

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The latest monthly revenue totals for Ohio's four voter-approved casinos are due to be released by a regulatory panel.

The Ohio Casino Control Commission was scheduled to share the July revenue figures on Thursday afternoon.

In June, the casinos in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo saw a revenue slump similar to colder months this year. Revenues that month totaled about $63.6 million, down about 7 percent compared with a year earlier.

The casinos have drawn more than $409 million so far this year. The state collects about one-third of those revenues in taxes and distributes the money to counties, along with school districts, host cities and others.
