DAYTON, Ohio (AP) – The numbers show that the state’s newest racino had a big opening weekend.
Hollywood Gaming at Dayton Raceway, which opened August 28, recorded nearly $1.9 million in net winnings during the four days it was open in August.
The racetrack and gaming palace also reported it took in an average of $466 million per slot machine per day, the highest total among the state six racinos, but that’s expected to level off.
The statewide average in August was $215.
The racino opened with 1,010 slot machines in play, but it has room to expand if they produce big numbers.
Harness racing starts there Oct. 3.
