Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati
(Cincinnati, Oh.) - Cincinnati’s new casino made less in April than it did in its first month of being open.
The Horseshoe Casino reported $17.8 million in adjusted gross revenue in April, according to the Ohio Casino Control Commission. That figure is down about $3.2 million, or 15 percent, from March.
Casino executives say the facility made less because gamblers were paid more in April. About 339,000 people visited the Horseshoe in April.
Indiana’s monthly casino revenue figures for April should be released Tuesday by the Indiana Gaming Commission. Hollywood Casino in Lawrenceburg and Rising Star Casino in Rising Sun saw their revenues take about a 25-percent hit – when compared to the same month in 2012 – in March, the first month the Cincinnati casino was open.
