The gambling facilities in Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo all reported drops in revenue from December to January. However, it was noted in the Casino Control Commission’s report that bad weather forced the Horseshoe Cleveland casino to close for more than a day and Hollywood Toledo to shut down for two days. 

The numbers were historically bad for all four casinos. January’s take was the second worst month on record for Horseshoe Cincinnati; only December 2013 was worse. The revenue recorded at Horseshoe Cleveland was the lowest recorded since the partial month it opened in May 2012. It was the worst month ever for Hollywood Columbus and Hollywood Toledo.

Weather was also a factor cited in lower gambling revenue numbers in some states around Ohio, all of which allow casino gambling.

Listener Comments:

Well I've only been to the Horseshoe and I'll never go back again. If you want people to drop money you need to let them win a bit! And the tables are kind of high, at least when I've been there $25 a hand was the lowest I saw. I thought about heading to Hollywood but the reviews are terrible no one wins! When I spin 20 times with out a win of any kind it gets really old fast.
