CINCINNATI -- Horseshoe Cincinnati was the only one of Ohio’s four casinos to post a monthly revenue increase in spite of January’s harsh cold and snow.
Cincinnati revenue rose about 14.2 percent last month from $14.2 million in December to $16.2 million, the Ohio Casino Control Commission reported Friday.
Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo were down from December as well as from January 2013.
The steepest month-to-month drop was at Hollywood Toledo, which closed twice for nearly 52 hours because of bad weather. It dropped to $11.5 million from $14.3 million in December and in January 2013.
Horseshoe Cleveland, which closed for 37 hours because of the weather, dropped $4.1 million from a year ago, and Hollywood Columbus dropped $3 million from a year ago.
Horseshoe Cleveland brought in $16.6 million last month, down from $18.3 million in December and $20.7 million in January 2013.
Hollywood Columbus had $15.3 million last month, down from $16.5 million in December and $18.3 million in January 2013.
Statewide revenue totaled just less than $59.7 million in January, down from $63.2 million in a lackluster December.
