Jack Cleveland Casino’s annual revenue continues to decline, unlike the state’s other three casinos

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Jack Cleveland Casino’s annual revenue continues to decline, dropping about 1 percent from $203.6 million in 2016 to $201.4 million in 2017.

The state’s three other casinos increased revenue from 2016 to 2017, according to the monthly report from the Ohio Casino Control Commission.

Annual revenue at the Cleveland casino was: 

$212.7 million in 2015$220.4 million in 2014$242.6 million in 2013

Here’s annual revenue at the other three casinos for the past two years:

Jack Cincinnati Casino: 2017: $198 million. 2016: $189.2 million.Hollywood Casino Columbus: 2017: $221 million. 2016: $213 million.Hollywood Casino Toledo: 2017: $198.6 million. 2016: $191.6 million.

The downtown Cleveland casino had $17.5 million in revenue for December 2017, a $1 million increase from December 2016.

Statewide casino revenue for December was $70.1 million, compared to $66.3 million in December 2016 - a 5.7 percent increase.

Statewide monthly revenue for the seven racinos showed a 7.5 percent increase, from $73.6 million in December 2016 to $79.4 million in December 2017, according to the Ohio Lottery Commission.

Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park, with $18.8 million in revenue for December, was the top revenue producer of the racinos and casinos.

Jack Thistledown Racino had $9.5 million in revenue in December, the same as a year ago.

The state defines revenue as the money left after casinos and racinos pay winners and deduct for promotions.

Casino and racino officials say year-over-year comparisons typically provide a more accurate reflection of performance than comparing one month to the previous one.

Here’s an historical look at revenue for the four Northeast Ohio gambling venues for the month of December.
