Things are looking up for America’s outhouse, as the state of Ohio reported record casino revenue for a month of September, with numbers up 6.1% from the year prior.
For the month of September, betting revenues were $164.6 million, up from $155.1 million last year. The numbers were down from July and August, with September’s numbers down 4.7% and 9.4% respectively. Casinos were responsible for $71.9 million, with the Hollywood Columbus Casino performed best with revenues of $19.2 million, while the Hollywood Toledo Casino was next at $18.8 million. Both properties are run by Penn National.
Ohio casinos and racinos were forced closed from March through June due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Things are on the rebound, and it appears that many gamblers in the state have returned to play already.
Unfortunately, they still live in Ohio.
