Ohio’s casinos and racinos had $187.8 million in gambling revenue in October, down 2% compared to the combined $192.1 million the 11 casinos and racinos brought in during the same month last year.

The record for October [of] $192.7 million was set in 2021, according to data from the Ohio Casino Control and Lottery commissions. This is the money kept by the gambling houses, after paying out winnings, but before state taxes and fees.

There were fewer Fridays and Saturdays this October, versus the last two years. These weekend days typically are the busiest.

Ohio’s gambling establishments are still ahead year-over-year, despite less bets in October.
