Regulated gambling operators in Ohio had a strong month, judging by details released by the gambling regulator in the state.
Ohio Casino Control Commission Releases Gambling Revenue Data
The Ohio Casino Control Commission, the gambling watchdog in the state, released data outlining the performance of the four casinos in the state. Overall, the total revenue reported by the operators hit $83.1 million, marking a slight increase when compared to the $81.4 million reported a month earlier, in September. However, a year-over-year comparison for October shows that revenue increased by nearly 3% considering that last year it halted at $80.9 million.
A breakdown provided by the gambling regulator reveals that the total table revenue reported by the casinos in Ohio increased as well. In September, the table revenue halted at $23.4 million, while in October, it hit $25.1 million. What’s more, the result from last month surpassed the $24.4 million reported in table games revenue from October last year.
On the other hand, slot revenue reported by the casinos in Ohio last month hit $57.9 million. This result didn’t surpass the $58.1 million in slot revenue reported a month earlier, in September. However, when compared to October 2021, a slight increase was observed considering that back then, the slot revenue halted at $56.5 million.
So far, the total revenue reported by the casinos in Ohio hit $842.7 million since the start of the year. Last year, including November and December, the total revenue hit $983.7 million. This said, in theory, if the casinos keep their performance above $80 million in revenue for November and December, they may surpass the total revenue reported last year.

The second-highest casino revenue last month was reported by Jack Cleveland Casino. In total, the venue’s revenue last month hit $21.2 million.
