It may not be the largest market, but Ohio gambling revenue has joined the record breaking party, as over over $194 million was generated from gaming in the state in August.
This was the third consecutive month for revenue records, as Monthly July generated over $211 million, while June was just short of $197 million.
The Ohio Casino Control and Lottery Commission reports that the record breaking month brought the states year-to-date gambling revenue to over $1.6 billion. They permit the state’s four casinos to offer table games, lot machines, and have poker rooms.
Making the Ohio gambling revenue record breaking summer even more impressive is that fact that, for the most part, business slowed considerably over the past month, perhaps from the fear of a Covid resurgence.
The most profitable operator in the state was MGM Northfield Park, which had revenue of over $23 million, which was an increase of almost 21% from August of last year.
