The hot streak of records for Ohio’s casinos and racinos ended in October, with revenue coming up just short of the record set a year ago.
Combined, the 11 facilities brought in $192.1 million in gambling revenue, slightly down from the $192.7 million reported in October 2021, according to reports Monday from the Ohio Casino Control and Lottery commissions.
However, there were just four Fridays last month, compared with five a year ago. Business is typically busier on the weekends. Both Octobers had five Saturdays.
October revenues were up compared to the $169.1 million made in 2020 and $158.4 million made in 2019. Gambling revenue had broken records in September and August.
