CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Jack Cleveland Casino's revenue for October was a strong rebound from a poor showing during the same month a year ago.
The casino had $16.9 million in revenue last month, according to the monthly report from the Ohio Casino Control Commission. That was a 10.4 percent increase from October 2016, when it drew only $15.3 million.
All four casinos showed higher revenues last month than during October 2016, and statewide revenue of $66.5 million was a 6.2 percent increase.
Its competitor to the south, Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park, had another strong month. It again led all casinos and racinos in revenue with $19.6 million, which was $1 million more than October 2016.
Statewide revenue from the seven racinos was $78.2 million in October, a 4.8 percent increase from a year ago.
The state commissions define revenue as the money left after casinos and racinos pay winners and deduct for promotions.
Casino and racino officials say year-over-year comparisons typically provide a more accurate reflection of performance than comparing one month to the previous one.
