COLUMBUS (AP) -- April revenues for Ohio's four casinos are expected to be released Tuesday.
In March, Cincinnati's brand-new casino raked in $21 million during its first month of operation.
The other three casinos saw double-digit percent increases in their revenues.
Toledo had the biggest gains, from $14.8 million in February to $17.8 million in March. That's a 20 percent increase.
Statewide, casino revenues increased from $55.5 million in February to $84.3 million in March, partially because of the addition of Cincinnati.
The four casinos approved by voters in 2009 opened within a 10-month span, beginning with Toledo and Cleveland last May. The Columbus site opened in October.
Combined, they've brought in $543.6 million. A third of that has gone to Ohio's schools, counties and cities.
