Ohio's racinos could soon earn more than casinos

June 26, 2014
Associated Press

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's racinos are on track to make more money than the state's four casinos.

The state's casinos reported $71.2 million in revenue in May while Ohio's five racinos — which offer horse racing and slot machines, but no table games — made $55.7 million in profit.

But with new racinos slated to open this fall in Dayton and in the Youngstown area, the racinos could soon become the overall revenue leader.

Slot machines at the racinos are already taking in more money than the slots at casinos in Cleveland, Columbus, Toledo and Cincinnati.

Experts are telling the Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1lgbpTx ) that the key is location: racinos tend to be located in the suburbs and are easier for people to get to.
