Ohio’s casino and racino industry set a another monthly record, taking in $194.3 million in gambling revenue in August after paying out winnings, reports from the state’s casino control and lottery commissions show. The revenue for the 11 facilities topped the previous August record of $172.1 million, set a year ago, with a gain of 12.9%. Ahead of the pandemic, the August record had been $164.4 million, set in 2019. But despite the August record, business slowed the last full month of the summer. Monthly revenue records were also set in July ($211.2 million) and June ($196.8 million). Through the first eight months of 2021, gambling revenue has totaled nearly $1.6 billion statewide.
