According to the Ohio Casino Control Commission (OCCC), casinos in the state generated $84.6 million in revenue during May, making it the second most profitable month of 2024 for its casinos. Ohio does not have real money online casinos yet, just brick-and-mortar.

May's figures show a slight 1.3% increase from April’s revenues of $83.4 million but are 11% lower than March’s revenues of $94.7, the state’s highest-grossing month this year. Ohio’s total casino revenue for this year up to May is $421.5 million, with revenues from slots and table games generating $115 million and $306.5 million, respectively.


Of the total monthly revenue, over $62.4 million was generated from slots, while the remaining $22.2 million was generated by table games.

Ohio has four land-based casinos in its most populous cities. Hollywood Columbus led with $23.6 million, followed by Jack Cleveland ($21.3m), Hard Rock Cincinnati ($20.4m), and Hollywood Toledo ($19.1m).

Additionally, Ohio's seven racinos generated $119.8 million in revenue in May. Together, the state's casinos and racinos reported $204 million in revenue, up 4% year-over-year and the best May figure since 2021. This brings Ohio's total revenue for the year to over $1 billion.

The most profitable racino was MGM Northfield Park with $26.8 million, followed by Miami Valley Gaming ($21.6m), Scioto Downs ($19.9m), JACK Thistledown Racino ($15.4m), Hollywood Mahoning Valley ($15m), Hollywood Dayton ($13.3m), and Belterra Park ($7.6m).

Earlier this week, the OCCC also shared Ohio sports betting results for May, revealing that adjusted gross revenue from online and retail sportsbooks surpassed $67.2 million, up 16.4% year-over-year.
