Gambling revenue for month increases

Gambling revenue at Ohio’s four full-service casinos showed a healthy increase in May, suggesting the industry may have stabilized somewhat after a nearly yearlong run of poor year-over-year comparisons.

At Hollywood Casino Toledo, May gaming revenue was $17.3 million, a 4.9 percent increase from last year.

The Ohio Casino Control Commission reported Wednesday that statewide gaming revenue was $70.2 million last month, a 5.5 percent increase over the same month last year.

State officials said revenue was up at all four individual properties.
