CINCINNATI — Ohio’s newest casino raked in $21 million during its first month of operation as the state’s three other casinos saw double-digit percent increases in their revenues, according to a report released Monday by the Ohio Casino Control Commission.
The report is the first for Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati, a $400 million facility in the city’s downtown that opened March 4.
Even though Cincinnati’s figure represents just under a full month of operation, it had the second highest March revenues in the state after Cleveland, which drew $24.5 million.
“We’re feeling great about our start,” said Kevin Kline, general manager for Cincinnati’s casino.
The casino tallied about 441,000 visitors in the first month, Kline said.
The casino is owned by Rock Ohio Caesars LLC, a joint venture comprised of Rock Gaming LLC and Caesars Entertainment Corp.
