The state’s 11 casinos and racinos brought in a combined $197.2 million of revenue in February, up slightly from $197 million in February 2023, according to data compiled from Casino and Lottery commission reports. This is the money kept by the gambling houses, after paying out winnings, but before state taxes and fees.

The steady February comes after a down January, which saw Ohio’s racinos and casinos start the year with just $176.1 million in revenue, down from $196.8 million.

Ohio’s four casinos accounted for $83.5 million of revenue, up from $82.6 million.
