Ohio Casinos Rake In $409M In First Half Of 2014

Horseshoe Cleveland Brings In The Most Revenue


It takes more than a few snow storms and cold weather to keep Ohioans from gambling.

During the first half of 2014 (Jan. 1 to June 30), Ohio’s four brick-and-mortar casinos brought in $409,841,639 in gaming revenue. That’s the amount they won from gamblers.

According to the Ohio Casino Control Commission, the Horseshoe Cleveland brought in the most thus far in 2014, taking over $110 million, while Hollywood Columbus saw just over $105 million and the Horseshoe Cincinnati had $102 million. Hollywood Toledo trailed behind in revenue with less than $92 million from January to July.

The Buckeye State’s four casinos generated $63.6 million in June, not to mention an additional $48.8 million brought in by the state’s various racinos.

In the first few months of the year, the Horseshoe Cleveland was closed due to weather for 37 hours, and the Hollywood Toledo was closed due to weather for 73.5 hours.

Ohio first legalized casinos in 2009, and the first one popped up in 2012.
