Ohio casinos, racinos set record revenue in March


Ohio’s four casinos and seven racinos set monthly revenue records in March, the first month of full operating hours since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Total gaming revenue was $216m, up 36% from February. 

Ohio casinos generated $92m for the month, nearly $6m more than the previous record set in July 2020. March was just the third time Ohio casinos had topped the $80m barrier.

Hollywood Columbus led the state with $24.8m, followed right behind by Hollywood Toledo at $23.9m. JACK Cleveland took third with $22.2m, whole Hard Rock Cincinnati brought in $20.7m. 

Ohio’s racinos earned another $124m of combined revenue, which was more than $20m higher than the previous record of $101m set in March 2019. This last month was just the second time Ohio racinos earned more than $100m.

Ohio casinos and racinos have been operating at full hours of operation since February 11, when Governor Mike DeWine ended a months long curfew. Gaming establishments have continued to use social distancing measures with limited table game availability. 

Ohio lawmakers meanwhile are preparing to debate a bill that would legalize sports betting in the Buckeye State. Committees could begin hearing a sports betting bill in the next couple of weeks, Sen. Kirk Schuring (R-Jackson Twp) told Cincinnati TV station Local 12 last week.
