COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio’s four casinos have generated about $479 million in revenue this year, and that total will rise as state regulators release the figures for August.

The latest monthly report is due Tuesday from the Ohio Casino Control Commission.

The casinos brought in about $69 million in July, which was up the previous month and also up slightly from the same month a year earlier.

Revenue increased from June to July at the four casinos in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo.

About one-third of the revenue is collected in taxes and given mostly to counties, school districts and host cities. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
